The American Boy’s Handy Book: What to Do and How to Do It

NickTASC writes – “Perfect for all makers that enjoy reading on a lazy day. 441 pages of projects from 1882 aimed at young boys looking for out door fun. Way too many projects to list, but a few of the chapters cover: War Kites, Home-made fishing tackle, Stocking and keeping a marine aquarium, Underwater telescopes, Rigging and Sailing small boats, taxidermy, and the creation of snow forts. For $9.71 it’s definitely within any maker’s budget.”
