2.0 out of 5 stars Not for beginers Sept. 4 2000
The book has some very interesting plans and good photos for those how like to work with wood and make toys for children and as keepsakes.
However this is not for the begining wood worker. The plans were not proofed before printing, there are many mesurmetments missing or do not agree with parts list. Unless the part is drawn to scale you will need to make it to fit on your own.
Having a complete wood shop, I found that I had to use many tools that were not listed as needed in the book. In some cases I needed to improvise, such as using my drill press as a vertical lathe. Just watch the grain paterns as shown and you will be able to produce somthing to be proud of.
To date I have made the Pick Up (29 Ford), Peterbilt Tractor with box trailer and Buick Sedan. From the expereance I gained it should make it possable to complete the projets pictured but not show in detail.

The book is in great shape. The shipping was fast, and I am in the middle of following the book for a toy truck. We'll see how it turns out, but so far it is a good book to follow the directions by.
