Practical Projects for the Handy Man by Collective

Practical Projects for the Handy Man is the perfect book for any model maven, do-it-yourselfer, or just plain grown-up kid. Originally published in 1913 by the editors of Popular Mechanics Press, this great big collection of activities and improvements for home, garden, transportation, recreation, and more can keep a man's hands busy for a lifetime. Written at a time when precision and craftsmanship was as important as the final product, the book gives clear, step-by-step instructions and offers detailed illustrations for nearly every job. Practical Projects for the Handy Man is as satisfying and reliable a guide for the modern builder as it was at the turn of the century.Some of the hundreds of fun and fascinating projects from which to choose include: porch swing chair, Mission library table, electric clock, wooden paddleboat, grape arbor, ornamental ironwork, telescope, toboggan sled, homemade still, aquarium, treehouses, leatherwork, birdhouse and much more.
