Originally published in the early 1900s, this book evokes memories of the halcyon time of boyhood in an era where a boy's hobby played a large part in the development of his character. 'A man or a boy without a hobby is like a vessel without a keel - he lacks just that which will keep his mind well balanced.' This is no more relevant than today in an electronic age.Contents Include: THE WORKSHOP AT HOME: Carpentry and Joinery The Boy's Own Den How to Make a School Box with Secret Compartments How to Make a Puzzle Box How to Make a Willy Wizard's Table A Novel Photo-Frame A Home-Made Boomerang How to Make a Flagstaff An Automatic Fountain How to Make a Model Opera-House Model Air Craft Model Boats How to Make a Submarine Boat A Wooden "Steam-Engine" How to Make and Work a Scenic Railway A Miniature Mill The Bicycle Blondin A Handy Motor Car The Wonders of a Jack-Knife INDOOR HOBBIES: Black and White Drawing Bent-Iron Work Fretwork Wood-Carving Bamboo Carpentry Poker-Work Repousse Work Book and Periodical Binding How to Make a Simple Stencil Photography How to Patent an Invention How to Make a Hectograph Leaf Skeletons Taxidermy Pebbles, and How to Polish Them Secrets of Science Advertisement-Writing COLLECTING Coin Collecting Stamp Collecting Autographs Birds' Egg Collecting The Collecting of Butterflies and Moths The Making of a Botanical Collection How to Form a Home Museum OUTDOOR HOBBIES Scouting Simple Surveying Walking Astronomy Out and About With a Geological Hammer Camping Caravanning Grass and Snow Toboggans Cycling and Cycle Repairs Motor Cycling What Every Boy Should Know About Railways What Every Boy Should Know About The Sea THE KEEPING OF PETS How To Make an Aviary How to Make a Fresh WaterKeywords: Carpentry And Joinery Early 1900s Model Boats Craft Model Model Air Secret Compartments Indoor Hobbies Steam Engine Lacks Puzzle Box Scenic Railway Age Contents Jack Knife Air Craft Fretwork Blondin Photo Frame Halcyon Boyhood Well Balanced
