Man Crafts, by Popular Mechanics, is a collection of projects reprinted from booklets that were originally published right after World War II.
Following are the 10 chapter titles of the book: Coping Saw Carpentry, Leathercraft, Bookbinding, Block Printing, Axe Craft, Tin-Can Craft, Braiding & Knotting, Fly Tying, Cartooning, and Lettering.
I’m finding Man Crafts to be a pretty entertaining read and am looking forwarding to trying my hand at some of the projects.
My copy of the book was a birthday gift from my wife, so credit goes to her for the find. Thanks again!
Man Crafts is available from major booksellers, or you can pick it up online via Amazon for a hair less than $10.
Now that you know what we’re reading, we’d love to hear about what YOU are reading!

Shop Class as Soulcraft: An Inquiry Into the Value of Work
That sounds interesting, especially with the content being reprints of the original. Love the title for the book, too.
