The character and object of this book is set forth on its title page. It is a manual designed principally for the assistance of students in wood-work in its various branches as well as a help to the instructor. The author has endeavored to present the subject in such a manner as to make simple the transition from the easier to the more difificult operations. The exercises have been selected after an experience in this line of instruction, covering a period of twelve 3ear3 and will be found practical in their aJ pplication to students in manual training in technical and industrial schools. Part first, Carpentr} ,is intended to cover from sixty to seventy hours of work. Part second, Wood-T urning, not to exceed thirty-five hours. Part third, Pattern-M aking, fifty or sixty hours, thus making a course which will be found to touch the principal points in the three branches of wood-work commonly taught in manual training schools or schools of technology or engineering. It has been the aim of the author to give in this course just enough instruction to enable the student to study the problems for himself, thereby the better fitting him for the construction of patterns for any machine which may be assigned him to complete his course in pattern-making, which is changed annually. A perusal of this work will disclose many features which the author feels sure will commend themselves to instructors and others interested in this department of school work. With the hope that these pages may prove a valuable aid to students and teachers alike, this work is presented to the public. James M. Tate. University of Minnesota, Minneapolis.
