Making Mad Toys & Mechanical Marvels in Wood by Rodney Frost
English | Sep. 1, 2007 | ISBN: 1402748124 | 160 Pages | PDF | 27.8 MB
Rodney Frosts collection of playful mechanical contraptions will captivate anyone who operates them-and theyll entice the creative woodworker too, because these whirligigs are as much fun to make as to maneuver. The secret to these movable marvels: propellers and other action-filled parts made from wood or metal. Full-size schematics and drawings, plus detailed written instructions, will guide woodwokers smoothly through building, carving, and assembling such enchanting projects as Grandads Night Out, a wild and wonderful gadget with a handsomely dressed figure that dances on a box; the Politically Incorrect Weather House (it contains a hygrometer to measure humidity); and Mr. Muscles & Little Ms. Threemore, two exercise buffs who work out!
