FOREWORD
This book is intended primarily for teachers of woodwork, but the author hopes that there will also be other
workers in wood, professional and amateur, who will find in it matter of interest and profit.

The successful completion of the book is due chiefly to the untiring assistance of my wife, Anna Gausmann
Noyes, who has made almost all of the drawings, corrected the text, read the proof, and attended to
numberless details.

Acknowledgments are hereby thankfully given for corrections and suggestions in the text made by the
following persons:
Mr. Chas. W. Weick of Teachers College, and Mr. W. F. Vroom of Public School No. 5, of New York City,
for revision of Chapters IV and V on tools and fastenings.
