Summary
Technology is not just computers and electronics. The pioneers who settled North America from the 17th to 19th centuries were loaded with technical knowledge -- how to make soap, how to build a fire, how to work wood -- that many of us wish we knew today. This compilation of articles from Make: provides readers with an entry point to a simpler time, when books were made by hand and pickles were high technology. The projects in this book are specifically designed to be created with simple materials like saws and hammers, paper and clay, vinegar and salt, string and glue. The book provides the reader with practical hands-on experience working with wood, paper, fat and oils, even fruits!
