In an age before text messaging and video games, boys were trained to use tools and make things that would be at times useful, and always entertaining. Originally published in 1912, Manual Training Toys for the Boy's Workshop is filled with projects that are nostalgic reminders of that simpler time.
The book contains 42 shop projects, each presented with a cutting list and dimensioned drawing. Dedicated to "the boy who likes to tinker 'round," most of these projects can be done without adult supervision. Of course many adults will delight in doing these hands-on projects themselves!
Some of the family-friendly projects include a New Year's Eve rattle, a cannon that shoots marbles, a kite string reel, a pop-gun and whistle, a bow and arrow, a sword and a magic box.
