by Joseph J. Lukowitz
Some of the projects in this book from 1938 are out of style, but the techniques of making them are not, with one exception; in the 1930s wood screws were not widely available, so nails were commonly used. Screws are better.
As with any good book, the ideas it generates are as useful as the projects it details. Joseph Lukowitz was an industrial arts teacher and a master of self-sufficiency. He assumed people would rather make than buy items they need. This is a novel concept in today's world, but a welcome one. Anyone with a basic tool set can enjoy the satisfaction of using things they have made by hand.
