-Things To Make | by Archibald Williams
The making for oneself of toys and other objects of a more or less useful character has certain advantages over buying them. In the case of the more elaborate and costly articles, it may enable one to possess things which otherwise would be unobtainable. Secondly, a home-made article may give a satisfaction more lasting than is conferred by a bought one, though it may be less beautiful to look upon. Thirdly, the mere making should be a pleasure, and must be an education in itself.

-Practical Mechanics For Boys | by James Slough Zerbe
It is not the intention of the book to make every boy who reads and studies it, a machinist; nor have we any desire to present a lot of useful articles as samples of what to make. The object is to show the boy what are the requirements necessary to make him a machinist; how to hold, handle, sharpen and grind the various tools; the proper ones to use for each particular character of work; how the various machines are handled and cared for; the best materials to use; and suggest the numerous things which can be done in a shop which will pave the way for making his work pleasant as well as profitable.

The text and illustrations, in each instance, have been prepared expressly for this series by well known experts, and revised by the editor of Popular Mechanics.
-How To Make Common Things For Boys | by John A. Bower
In these days all young people want "to make something." In most of our Public Schools, and in very many of our Elementary Schools, the importance of "tool-work" has been recognized, and workshops are now fitted up and put at the service of those who delight in "making things." In some of our technical departments provision is even made for doing metal-work. This little book is not intended for those who have such a complete set of tools as is provided under these circumstances, or who have a personal instructor in handicrafts, but for those who have the "desire and will" to do something by themselves without any elaborate appliances...
