Book Corner: Making Tiny Toys in Wood

Making Tiny Toys in Wood

Ornaments & Collectible Heirloom Accents

By Howard Clements


Use up your scrap wood by making charming toy ornaments for your holiday tree or whimsical accents for your home. Most of Howard Clements’ delightful designs incorporate motion, so the carousel turns, the Ferris wheel whirls, and the wheels spin on the cars, train, tractor, and wagon. The book includes an overview of woodworking materials and tools, and one step-by-step project. The 15 projects range in difficulty, but the clear instructions and assembly drawings should ensure that scrollers of any ability can make and enjoy these tiny toys.
