From dust jacket: This entertaining, easy-to-read book will show you how to multiply the conveniences of your home, improve its interior appearance -- and have loads of fun doing it. In twelve simple conversational chapters you will learn how to acquire dexterity with hammer, nails and saw; the types of lumber to be employed; the easiest method of making Òworking drawings;Ó and pertinent facts to be observed in painting and finishing; interspersed throughout with numerous -- sometimes amusing, always helpful -- illustrations and diagrams. Following the text is a pictorial portfolio of practical suggestions. With this book as a guide, good-looking shelving, window seats, cupboards, closet fittings, panels, hideaways for the family silver, and a host of other originally concieved peices of furntiutre will all magically spring into being. For all of these things are easy to make, and do not require any special skill or an elaborate kit of tools. When this book gets into circulation we predict the sound of hammer and saw will be heard throughout the country, and that a great many men and women will have more fun that they ever imagined -- building things they have always wanted.
