Our grandfathers alone in the wilderness, were sufficient unto themselves, for they were true Woodcrafters—they mastered the things about them. Conditions have changed, and now most of these things have been taken from the home to the factory, so the old home training is no longer in reach.

The big value of all this knowledge was in that it bestowed power. For learning to do gives more power to do, and when you let someone else do a thing for you, you eventually lose the power to do that thing. Through the ability to do have peoples prospered and nations become great.

So the Woodcraft Boy of today will learn to do, if he would be happy and healthful; for life is made worthwhile, not by the few great moments, but the making of the daily life pleasant and full of meaning. The difference in lives is largely in what one knows and can do. One is of value in the office from this standpoint.

The Woodcraft grinder has two-piece tool rests with relatively flat but small platforms. The rests and platforms can be adjusted, but the job requires a wrench, which is a hassle. But once dialed in, the tool rests held their settings well. The biggest problem with the Woodcraft in this review is that it vibrated a lot, even after I corrected the wheels for runout and dressed them.
