Calvin Cobb: Radio Woodworker!
By Roy Underhill
This is the long-awaited sensation from Roy Underhill: the world's first woodworking novel! Inspired by the life of Roy's great uncle Calvin, "Calvin Cobb: Radio Woodworker!" is a quirky 1930s-era comedy that combines Roy's love of history, woodworking, and Washington, D.C.
"Calvin Cobb" is about a government bureaucrat who lands the unlikely job as a radio show woodworker. In a period between economic depression and world war, Calvin and his colorful staff try to save the world through woodworking. Unlike traditional novels, this one includes measured drawings that play an integral role in the plot.
Weird, entertaining, and provocative — like Roy Underhill — this novel is bound to make you laugh on nearly every page.
