Sub-titled 'Leather Tooling, Fly Tying, Axe Whittling and Other Cool Things To Do' here is a revived and updated handbook of exceptional quality and originality of handcrafted goods. Popular Mechanics magazine was created at the end of the Second World War and introduced skills to master brand new abilities in leatherworking, sign lettering and bookbinding. Produced in the USA, they were challenging and designed to make woodworking fun. Make some jolly sailor bookends using the template provided, a pipe rack, a photo brooch, letter rack, pen tray and how to handle your saw. In the Leathercraft section all of the tools are described and detailed diagrams and instructions to make a leather wallet, belt, moccasins. All the materials for bookbinding, block printing for stationery, letterhead monograms with miscellaneous designs which today can be scanned from the book. Some of the articles to make in wood include picture and mirror frames, plant baskets, birdhouses, clocks, coffee tables and tables, chairs and benches and stools. The novelty animal serving trays are especially delightful, for example the duck tray, with a pattern provided. And we have not even got on to braiding and knotting and cartooning - easy when you know the tricks! 176pp, fully illus and with bonded leather embossed cover, this is a luxury publication.
