The Boy Mechanic: Best Projects from the Classic Popular Mechanics Series Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

These vintage craftwork projects date from a simpler time, when people were more likely to make their own amusements rather than buy them. Drawn from Popular Mechanics magazines of the 1940s, The Boy Mechanic features a tremendous variety of well-illustrated projects. They range from the practical to the fanciful, comprising everyday items such as birdhouses and bean shooters as well as unusual ventures, including ice gliders and magnetic theaters.

Girls, boys, and adults of both genders will appreciate these engaging projects, which require only common tools and inexpensive supplies. Whether used as a manual or simply read for the pleasure of a look back at the good old days, this book promises hours of enjoyment.
