In preparing this thesis I have constantly borne in mind the usefulness of woodcraft to the Home Economic Girls at Prairie View State College. I intend to encourage the development of an appreciation of the general principles of woodcraft rather than the practical method. To do this the students in woodcraft should be given an opportunity for the acquisition of skill in the handling of tools and some practice in designing simple projects in wood. The woodcraft industries in this country, particularly the building and furniture industries, are among the most important, because they employ thousands of highly skilled workmen, designers, and artists, to produce useful as well as beautiful articles of wood. In writing this thesis, title, "The scope of Woodcraft for Home economic Girls at Prairie view state College," I shall attempt to discuss, as briefly as possible, many of those points which every Home economic Girl taking woodcraft should know.
