When you own a house from the 50’s there are endless Saturday Projects to be done on it. And when you add  a stack of Popular Mechanics magazines from the 50’s to accompany that said1950’s house, you begin to think you are living in that rancher pictured in the magazine and you think constructing a rooster shaped weather vane is a really good idea.

Well maybe I wont make that weather vane… but Popular Mechanics is one of the original DIY magazines. Every issue packed with useful how-to’s and instructions for making all types of weird things on your day off.


A few more images here, will scan more later.
