Format: Paperback
This text is a clasic study of well-drawn plans. Originally publiished in 1987, this edition does little to correct the criticism that the text is heavy with detailed measured drawings and photos, but light on steo-by-step building instructions.
I would like to see a chapter on wheel and tire making and a chapter on painting. (There is a good reason why Mr. Martin coats his toys in non-toxic clear finish while I prefer the more traditional Catipillar yellow with decals).
The paucity of details rule out the beginner, but the plethora of drawings and plans mandate its place on the bookshelf of every aspiring Gepetto.

I bought this book as a birthday gift for my brother who not only makes a wide variety of items from wood but sells his work too. This book had beautiful colored pictures and was clear and concise. My brother absolutely loved the book and has made several toys out of it already. For the woodworker, this is a must have book!

Lots of diagrams and measurements. not may how to directions. On that note, i would recommend it to more experienced wood workers. Lots of color pictures. If you are good at visualizing things and reverse engineering pictures, you will love this book

My husband wanted this book so he and the neighbor boy could build something together. They have enjoyed looking at and making several plans from this book.
