  1. From the glossary in the front:

    Creosote – An oily liquid containing phenols and creosols, obtained from coal tar. Used as a wood preservative and disinfectant. Can cause severe neurological disturbances if inhaled.

    Okay, I’m hooked! :)

  2. Just found a copy of this book that was owned by my great grandfather and passed down to my Dad. It’s an incredible book with plans to make everything from work benches to toys to several kinds of steam engine.
