1966 Designs for making your own furniture

I re-discovered this book last week when I was looking for my old Habitat catalogue. It dates from 1966 and has some wonderful ideas in it. I often wished I'd had the chance to do wood work at school but instead, I always ended up doing technical drawing with the Deputy Head! (the short straw!) I love the bold colours and square ends of the furniture.
