"By far the best of its type...that's crossed my desk in ten years of dealing with such books." --J. Baldwin, Technical Editor, CoEvolution Quarterly Want to know how to make a hacksaw, build a ladder, mix cement? How to lay bricks, raise sagging beams, insulate and waterproof walls? How to recane furniture, cut glass, make an iceless cooler or a fireless cooker? How to split logs with explosives, how to roof a haystack, stretch a frame, aerate stale well water? How to dip a sheep, tie a colt, teach chickens to roost, and stop dogs from chasing cars? How to plant fruit trees, how to mark seed rows, how to make a lawn settee? How to clean shoes, open stubborn jars, fly-proof a house? The how-to's and what-with's of all these projects and hundreds more carefully illustrated farm- and home-tested tips are to be found in the pages of Handy Farm and Home Devices and How to Make Them.
