Excerpt from Manual Training for the Rural Schools: A Group of Farm and Farm Home Woodworking Problems
A shop containing a workbench and tools on every farm is necessary not only to keep the farm equipment in order but as a place and means for the boys to tinker at such work ... as suits their fancy.
A workbench and a kit of tools are desirable equipment for the schools that the older boys may receive training to do construction and repair work and satisfy their desire to work with tools.
The Workbench herein suggested is suited to do the kind of work indicated by the appliances on the following pages. It is suggested that the teachers and school boards who desire to have this work in their schools do not depend on the boys to construct the benches for the school but rather hire a carpenter to do the work. After the boys have done considerable of the work constructing the appliances it may be desirable to have them build benches for their own use at home.
