Extract from back cover of book:

Make unique whirligigs and eye-catching mechanical toys out of wood.

The projects in this book include brand-new designs for whirligigs and moving toys, as well as some new twists on classic folk toy patterns. Full-size patterns are given, along with exploded drawings of the projects illustrating how the pieces go together and tips on creating your own unique designs from inventor and artist Rodney Frost.

About the Author - Rodney Frost is the author of Making Mad Toys & Mechanical Marvels in Wood, Creative Kinetics, and The Nature of Woodworking. He is a graduate of Brighton College of Art with a National Diploma in Design and a teaching certificate from the University of London. He has designed bottles and tableware, written for newspapers, made snowshoes, decorated popcorn wagons, built buggies and sleighs, been a seafront candymaker, and raised a family. Rodney has appeared on the TV programs In the Workshop, Canadian Gardening TV, and Hands over Time. With Making Whirligigs, Whimsies & Folk Toys, he continues his tradition of thoughtful and thorough designs, some old and some definitely never seen before. Rodney lives in Orillia, Ontario, where he sews clothes for himself, plays his euphonium, and wonders what's coming next.
