Industrial Arts instructor in Elwood, Indiana, Paul Champion here attempts to supply the ambitions craftsman with leads to practical results with cheap and accessible supplies of wood, through boxes and crates. The procedure is good (he even tells how to take the boxes apart so as to preserve the lumber best); the idea is good; there is a practical section on wood finishes that will prove useful. But- unfortunately, his taste leaves much to be desired when it comes to design. A mere handful of the articles diagrammed here show any taste. Most of them are just plaingly.
