This book is full of ideas for projects. Unfortunately it was written so long ago that many of the materials suggested for projects are no longer readily available and have been replaced with modern alternatives. T
hat having been said, it is fun to thumb through this book. It is a piece of nostalgia and will get any man or boy dreaming about things he can make with his own hands. This is a great book for fueling the adventurous spirit and getting those creative juices flowing!
