Manual Training Toys for the Boy's Workshop
Featuring projects from the 19th and 20th centuries, this woodworking handbook presents family-friendly shop projects from a bygone era. Each project--many of them toys from a simpler time when boys were trained to use tools to create useful objects--comes with a cutting list and dimensioned drawing. Projects include a New Year's Eve rattle, a cannon that shoots marbles, a kite string reel, a pop-gun and whistle, a bow and arrow, a sword, and a magic box. This evocative guide not only instructs aspiring crafters to construct, but also provides finished products that entertain.
