This early manual is a fascinating read for any home crafts enthusiast or historian, but contains much information that is still useful and practical today. Workshop projects are extensively illustrated with hundreds of drawings and diagrams. This comprehensive work is thoroughly recommended for inclusion on the bookshelf of all woodworkers and craftsmen. Contents Include: Tools and How to Use Them; For the Living Room; For the Kitchen; For the Workroom and Cellar; For the Bedroom; For the Bathroom; For the Garden and Outdoors; For Men and Women; For Children; Painting and Finishing. 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.
