PART TWO
POPULAR MECHANICS HANDBOOKS
By H. H. WINDSOR

CHICAGO
POPULAR MECHANICS COMPANY

1910


THIS book is one of the series of handbooks on industrial subjects being published by the Popular Mechanics Co. Like the magazine, these books are "written so you can understand it," and are intended to furnish information on mechanical subjects at a price within the reach of all.

The texts and illustrations have been prepared expressly for this Handbook Series, by experts; are up-to-date, and have been revised by the editor of Popular Mechanics.

THE dimensions given in the stock list contained in the description of each piece of furniture illustrated in this book call for material millplaned, sanded and cut to length. If the workman desires to have a complete home-made article, allowance must be made in the dimensions for planing and squaring the pieces. S-4-S and S-2-S are abbreviations for surface four sides and surface two sides.
