Some of the projects in this book include:
• Toy donkey that nods and wags its tail
• Child's playhouse
• Miniature windmill
• Magic tricks, including the "X-Ray" cards and the mystery coin box
• Homebuilt canoe
• Diving tower
• Motors and engines
Some of the projects are pretty ambitious; it will help if you have experience reading blueprints and making things without complete step-by-step hand-holding. What the book lacks in detail, it makes up for in breadth and adventuresome spirit. This book is for adults as much -- maybe even more -- as it is for kids.
