A battered box arrived one day from contributing editor Mike Dunbar. Inside lay a treasure-trove of old woodworking magazines dating back to the mid-1930s and early '40s.
The holiday issues had fabulous projects—pipe racks, bookends and a patriotic uGod Bless America" scroll-saw pattern. But best of all was the "Honeymoon House Trailer" built by a reader for his honeymoon trip. Made out of parts from a 1926 Chevy, the trailer had a bed, a pull-out dressing room, even a kitchenette— complete with an icebox and running water!
Tool ads were fascinating, too—you could buy a tablcsaw for less than S40.
Here are a couplc of our favorite pages; they're from PopuLir Home Craft magazine.
