copiously illustrated, this in-depth handbook offers instruction
for constructing more than 50 wooden toys designed to appeal to
a child's sense of imagination and playfulness. A brief introduction
covers the basic techniques--gluing, sanding, and making wheels--and
each project presents a meticulous diagram, a handy materials list,
step-by-step instructions, and a photograph of the completed toy.
Designs include stylized versions of a Model T car, a crane, and
the ""Spirit of St. Louis"" airplane, as well
as projects specifically for beginning woodworkers, such as pull-along
trains and circus animals. Instructions for finishing and detailing
ensure that the completed crafts will last for years.
