I found some similar books that I will post later. I have a number of hardback boat building books, going back to just after the turn of the century. Very interesting that they can give instructions on building a boat from scratch, in 5 pages or less, and people did just that. Today I have seen plans for similar boats, and they take up a whole book just by themselves. Makes you wonder if people have gotten dumber, or just not as skilled.
Got 2 of those screwdrivers out in the shop, brace and bits (for drilling holes), and a very nice old Craftsman miter saw, it was apparently used very seldom before I got it, very cheaply.

.....Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.
