This early manual is a fascinating read for any home crafts enthusiast or historian, and contains much information that is still useful and practical today. Workshop projects are extensively illustrated with hundreds of drawings, diagrams and photographs. This comprehensive work is thoroughly recommended for inclusion on the bookshelf of all woodworkers and craftsmen. Fifty diverse articles are divided into three sections: Things to Make, Workshop Hints and Methods, and Home Improvements and Repairs. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
