Discover Everything You Need To Know About Setting Up Your Ultimate Small Woodworking Workshop

They say a man is only as good as the tools he chooses to use. This statement is particularly true. Besides skill, your craftsmanship is determined mainly by the tools you use. When you don’t know how to choose the right tools, you have a bigger problem on your hands. I’m Larry Brancaccio. Having been a woodworker for the past 15 or so years, it is safe to say that I have seen and done it all.

Starting out was quite challenging for me. I wished I had someone to guide me every step of the way, but I was not lucky. Learning the hard way cost me thousands of dollars while setting up my workshop and growing my business.

A Review of Ultimate Small Shop Guide

When I first bought and read Ralph’s guide at, I really wished I had this book 15 years ago.

Here’s why:

One of the greatest mistakes I made was overspending on tools. I was buying bad tools, and at other times I ended up overspending on tools I really didn’t need. You can’t blame me though; anyone looking for good quality tools on a budget will tell you that the experience is like walking on a minefield. This is because there are numerous factors you need to consider.

I quickly learned that buying from big box retailers such as Home Depot, Walmart, Lowes, and the like could have been a better idea. This is especially true when looking for a one-stop shop for your tool-related needs.

And as Ralph mentions, the “paid” reviews and recommendations make purchasing tools a guessing game. This is because, more often than not, these “sponsored” reviews are paid for by the manufacturers of the tools themselves!

Online sellers also tend to sell old refurbished tools as good-condition tools. Then there is also the risk of buying too much in terms of quantity and price, not spending enough, and even buying tools that suck. This experience is heartbreaking because you don’t lose just money. You also lose your valuable time. It gets worse when you go through the experience several times. I almost gave up my passion and never got started with this hobby.

As I mentioned earlier, when I started out 25 years ago I wished I had someone to guide me through setting up my shop. I know numerous other woodworkers are in a similar situation right now.

Here’s why I highly recommend Ultimate Small Shop to anyone setting up shop

This is the key reason why Ralph created the Ultimate Small Shop Guide to help you set up a fully functional small shop on a budget. And it clearly shows in the book.

There are plenty of guides on shop setup, but most don’t focus on budget – which is, in my opinion, one of the most critical factors.

Let’s face it, you can set up any shop you like if you have an endless budget! But not anyone has that luxury – certainly not me. So the tips and advice are valuable and practical for shop setups on a budget.

Ralph includes all the lessons he has learned the hard way, and his major goal is to save you from the agony of the trial-and-error process of setting up shop. Thus, you will no longer have to make bone-headed mistakes or waste any more money buying the wrong tools.
