4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book March 25, 2002
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great book for creating toys with your scroll saw. There are easy and hard projects and a few in between. This book is well written and laid out well. I would like more photos of completed projects though, this book only gives you diagrams and instructions. Without completed project photos I only gave this book 4 stars. It is the best book I have seen for scroll saw toys. I've already made several toys out of this book and I've really enjoyed having something to create with my scroll saw. I highly recommend this book for anyone with a scroll saw.

1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware!! November 4, 2003
Patterns and projects? Give me a break! I think next year I'll write a book on how to build a rocking horse. If I use the format presented here, all I need to do is suggest that you buy some wood. I'll provide the measures and of you go. Good luck.
Don't buy this book. Frankly these toys simply don't work as well as suggested. Perhaps the author was so caught up in getting the measurements right, that he forgot to give any instructions that would have made cutting all those articulating pieces worth the effort. Your money would be better spent on "Fun to Make Wooden Toys and Games" by Jeff and Jennie Loader. This book is filled with useful and excellent illustrations. What a gem.
