CRAFTS & HOBBIES

Use subjects in this section for works discussing technique from a craft (as opposed to fine art) viewpoint and/or for works on the history of the objects specified if they are not covered in other sections (such as ANTIQUES & COLLECTIBLES or ART).  For works discussing technique from a fine art viewpoint, use subjects in the ART section.

Use "CRAFTS & HOBBIES / Woodwork" for works on small-scale woodworking aimed at hobbyists and use "HOUSE & HOME / Woodworking" for works dealing mainly with large-scale household projects.
