For the home office, a standing desk, laptop and iphone stands, and headphone hooks make getting work done more efficient than ever.

Remembering that all work and no play is a bad approach to life, The Tinkering Woodworker also includes a beer tap and growler caddy, a bike rack, cathouse in the shape of a teardrop trailer, and a slingshot that would make Tom Sawyer proud. With each project presented in a crisp, easy-to-follow design that guarantees success, The Tinkering Woodworker is the woodworking book that today’s makers have been waiting for.

The Tinkering Woodworker was created by The Tinkering Monkey, an Oakland, California based woodworking/industrial design duo with a passion for designing and crafting smart, functional wooden products that are built to last.
