I read the 1909 version; it provides a fascinating look into peoples' way of life back then. Some projects, I think, are still useful today. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

A splendid bit of rural Americana, Cobleigh's book shows how anyone with a little time and money can add a touch of authentic charm to their farm, house, or garden. First published nearly a century ago, this practical guide features dozens of projects, accompanied by some 200 illustrations. A simply written text not only tells how to mount an anvil, make a cheese press, and build hog houses, but also provides handy advice on splitting wood, testing seed corn, tying practical knots, sharpening scissors, and papering a room. From building a rose trellis to creating a bicycle-powered washing machine, readers will delight in this book's abundance of enjoyable and useful projects. It's perfect for novice craftworkers and die-hard fans of Yankee ingenuity.… (more)
