This antique book contains a detailed handbook on handcrafting in wood and metal. The author's intention is to show the possibilities of craftwork as an educational subject, and to briefly indicate its cultural aspects. Designed as a training book for the practical working of teachers, students and craftsmen, this text is perfect for the amateur and makes for a great addition to handcrafting literature. The chapters of this book include: 'Historical Notes on Wood and Metal', 'First Year Models', 'Second Year Models', 'Third Year Models', 'Historic Craftwork and its Application to Classwork', 'Material Used in Handcraft Work', 'Decorative Processes in Wood and Metal Work', and many more. We are proud to republish this book here complete with a new introduction on woodworking.
