Civil War Woodworking
By

Rating
Ranging from fairly easy to moderately difficult, this woodworking manual furnishes accurate reproductions of Civil War-era objects. Historical information about manufacturing and woodworking in the 19th century complements a discussion on standards, offering interested craftspeople all the relevant information to produce authentic replicas in the modern shop. Step-by-step instructions present a variety of projects - such as an officer's field desk, an ammunition box, a folding camp table, a lantern, and a camp chest - and a detailed history accompanies each item. With period photographs of the original items as well as modern images of re-enactors using the reproductions, this reference will appeal to both the woodworker and history buff.
