If you have some woodturning experience, now you can create something truly special for family and friends. These beautiful hand-crafted toys are as enjoyable to make as they are to play with. Clear step-by-step instructions, detailed photographs and easy-to-follow diagrams start with simple toys and increase in complexity. Projects are a mixture of pure turned ones and also basic constructs, whereby turned items may be cut apart and resectioned to create something different. The 20 charming projects include simple turned animals, spinning top, tea party items, skittles, stacking blocks, pull-along train and indoor quoits. Each project is designed to be tactile and visually attractive as well as fun to use, and all toys are long lasting and comply with safety standards.
