First published in 1901, this book contains a comprehensive guide to making various things out of bamboo, including tables, chairs, cabinets, and more. “Bamboo Work” is highly recommended for anyone with an interest in woodwork and hand making furniture, and it would make for a great addition to DIY collections. Contents include: “Bamboo: It’s Sources and Uses”, “How to Work Bamboo”, “Bamboo Tables”, “Bamboo Chairs and Seats”, “Bamboo Hall Racks and Stands”, “Bamboo Music Rack”, “Bamboo Cabinets and Bookcases” “Bamboo Window Blinds”, “Miscellaneous Articles of Bamboo”, etc. Paul Nooncree Hasluck (1854 – 1916) was an Australian engineer and editor. He was a master of technical writing and father of the ‘do-it-yourself’ book, producing many books on subjects including engineering, handicrafts, woodwork, and more. Other notable works by this author include: “Treatise on the Tools Employed in the Art of Turning” (1881), “The Wrath-Jobber’s Handy Book” (1887), and “Screw-Threads and Methods of Producing Them” (1887). Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
