Things To Make...A Free Book

Growing up on a rural farm in the 1970's, I got to experience a 1950's childhood, so I was familiar with a lot of things from this antique book, Things to Make. My son is turning 8 tomorrow and I think there might be several items in here that we can put together as a father/son project.

As much as I like computers, i still like to make things with my hands and putter in the garden. There is just something special about working with your hands. That is not to say I am great at it, only that it feed good.

Download this PDF version of Things to Make for yourself and see what you can come up with.

Things To Make...(free book)

Wayn3w pointed out this great ebook from the Project Gutenberg Literary Archive Foundation - "Things To Make by Archibald Williams - Whether you simply want to travel back into the mind of a young boy at the beginning of the twentieth century, or want to try your hand at some interesting projects in carpentry, machinery, kites and many other areas, have fun."
