Synopsis

As its servicemen returned home at the end of World War II, the U.S. Army turned to Popular Mechanics to help them find new and lucrative occupations. A series of ten pamphlets were created, teaching skills that were 'fun to do and profitable too'. Reprinted here for the first time in a single volume and featuring all of the original artwork, these mini instructional courses will entertain men of all ages - even if their workbench is really the living room coffee table! From leather crafts and bookbinding to block printing and cartooning, there's a hobby to be found here for anyone. More ambitious readers may consider learning coping saw techniques, or even axe crafts, which entail making rustic furniture and fixtures using a single hatchet. As charming today as it was industrious then, the book is packaged in a vintage style that authentically captures the 'can-do' spirit of the era.
