Turned Toys

In this delightful book, woodturning expert Mark Baker shows you how to make beautiful, hand-crafted traditional toys and games. This book will appeal to turners who are looking for projects to develop their skills, while at the same time creating something special for their children and grandchildren to enjoy.

The 20 charming projects range in complexity, and are almost as enjoyable to make as they are to play with. They include traditional favourites such as a spinning top, tea party items, skittles, quoits, stacking blocks, a pull-along train and ring-turned pigs. Each project has clear step-by-step instructions, detailed photographs and easy-to-follow diagrams. Tactile and visually attractive, all toys are hard-wearing and safe for children to use.
