Great Book of Wooden Toys: More Than 50 Easy-To-Build Projects (American Woodworker). From Library Journal. These three dozen wooden toy projects reflect the late Norman Marshall's naval aviation and engineering background and include airplanes, autos, trains and construction vehicles such as a bulldozer, crane, and steamroller. The designs are not true-to-detail models, but use the bulk qualities of wood in simple ways to give child-appealing stylized versions of the ModelT, F-16, "Santa Fe," etc.

Since I purchased this book I have madea Model T Ford and am now making a Stearman biplane.
The instructions are generally clear with good illustrations. Most of the projects are not for beginners and most require a table or radial arm saw, a band saw and a power drum/belt sander. The author's suggestion to use knotty pine is economical but most of this wood in my local home improvement stores is warped, bowed and generally a pain to work with. Spend a little more and use clear pine or better yet, poplar which in my area is available in many different sizes and thicknesses. Also, the author may love resawing wood to get the sizes that he recommends but it would be a lot easier to scale the projects so that they require standard thicknesses.

First of all, I generally like this book and have made several toys shown in the book. However, I feel that it would be beneficial for anyone interested in buying this book to be aware of the following facts:

1. To make the boiler for a train called The General, the author indicates that you glue up three pieces of 3/4" stock and turn it on a lathe to the specifications shown. I can't think of any way to make that boiler without a lathe.

2. For the same project, the author indicates that you need a band saw or scroll saw to cut notches in a piece of wood for one of the parts. Also, I can't think of any way to cut windows in the middle of a piece of wood without a scroll saw.

3. Here's a procedure that might challenge a novice or beginning woodworker: To make the cowcatcher for the train, tilt the band saw table to 30 degrees, and set the miter gauge at 30 degrees to make the cut.

4. Another train called Santa Fe requires a total of 12 wheels, 6 on each side. That means that the 12 axle holes all have to be aligned perfectly, or some wheels will be higher or lower than others. If you are really good at drilling perfectly straight holes that are perfectly aligned with a hand held drill I commend you. It's not even that easy with a drill press.

5. I would estimate that more than 60% of the parts are made from 3/8" stock. If you have a band saw capable of re sawing 3/4" stock then there's no problem. But you can't buy 3/8" pine at your local Home Depot. In fact, it's hard to find 3/8" hardwood at Home Depot. It's difficult for me to justify buying 3/8" piece of hardwood just to make the bed for a trailer or train car. You can use MDF for some of the non-3/4" parts, but if the toy is left out in the rain for any length of time the MDF tends to deteriorate.

6. For two of the support pieces for a train, the author indicates to use a 2" and 1-1/2" hole saw to make the circular cutouts and then cut the supports to length and width with a band saw or scroll saw. Sounds simple, but I personally find that using a hole saw is not a fast and easy procedure. Again, if you can use a 2" hole saw chucked to your had held drill to make those cuts I commend you.

As mentioned, I really like many of the toys in this book. As long as you have the necessary tools (band saw, scroll saw, hole saw, lathe, and drill press) and can either find 3/8" stock or re saw other stock on your band saw, or maybe table saw, you will then be able to make all of the projects in the book. Just be prepared.

I've looked though several wood toy books. These toys can be made with a minimum woodworking skill. This book was purchased by a grandpaw wanting to provide a unique gift for several children. The plans are designed to provide a economical choice or somewhat heirloom quality depending on wood choice. The toys are large enough to provide a durable toy for children to play with. The wheels can be purchased online @ places like Casey's wood products they are more realistic w/tire treds in the wheels. They aren't "TONKAS" but they can be hand made with love! JP.

I've been using this book to make toys for children for 15 years and find the drawings and instructions clear and easy to follow. I like how all the projects are designed around stock lumber. One reviewer mentioned that the drawings are on grids for easy scaling. I should note that only items that are odd shaped and can't be drawn full scale in the book are on grids, but that is all that is needed. The only toy that I would have liked to have been included is a dump truck, but I designed my own once I got the hang of how his trucks are designed.

Great book for Grandpas with tools. I'll be making some things from this old book within the year.

Got this for this for a friend and he loved it

great book I making toys for my great nieces and nephews.
This book goes over several projects to make classic toys for kids. The instructions are very clear and come with scaled plans that you can actually understand and use.
Some of the projects are a little harder than other for beginners, and make for great practice projects. I went out and bought a second copy due to people always wanting to borrow my copy.
