Popular Mechanics Mancrafts
Leather tooling, Fly Tying, Ax Whittling, and Other Cool Things To Do
Want to split timber with an ax like a true woodsman?
Create bookends featuring figures of a soldier and a sailor? Make a fly to catch tonight's supper as expertly as a seasoned fisherman?
These are just a few of the invaluable skills in this Popular Mechanics guide originally published as a series of booklets to help U.S. servicemen hone their skills at the end of WWII. From block-printed stationery to handsome log coffee tables, from funny cartoons to a Colonial-style wall and table tin can candlestick, there are great gift ideas to be found here for today's man crafters.
