Man Crafts: Leather Tooling, Fly Tying, Ax Whittling, and Other Cool Things to Do (Popular Mechanics) by The Editors of Popular Mechanics. Hearst (May 5, 2009)

An eccentric collection of ‘manly’ crafts, from 100 years ago, that includes ‘axe’ crafts, whittling and fly tying to cartooning and book binding. The instructions are by no means definitive and really only provide a taster for getting started on these crafting pursuits.

The value in this book really lies within the detailed instructions and beautifully done illustrations giving the would be crafter a really good taste of beginning these ‘manly’ pursuits.
