Practical Projects for the Handy Man, Second Edition, is the perfect book for any modern maven, do-it-yourselfer, or just plain grown-up kid.

Written at a time when precision and craftsmanship were as important as the final product, this book gives clear, step-by-step instructions and offers detailed illustrations for nearly every job. Practical Projects for the Handy Man, Second Edition, is as satisfying and reliable a guide for the modern builder as it was at the turn of the century.
