A collection of projects for turning a range of classic and unusual wooden toys. Ideas are drawn from the folk traditions of Germany, Czechoslovakia, Russia and Poland, among others. A German nutcracker soldier, a jumping jack figure and a pull-string spinning top, plus more unusual toys like a giant-nosed Czechoslovakian human-head trumpet are among the projects. All the toys featured can be made with a standard lathe and simple tools.

The Bridgewaters' clearly written guide outlines tools, techniques, and materials necessary for re-creating old-fashioned wooden toys guaranteed to generate a nostalgic yearning in anyone predisposed to looking back on simpler times. Project instructions should be adequate for woodworkers who are comfortable working on a lathe. A number of handheld and pulltoys associated with bygone days are included--a jumping jack, natural wood spinning top, and baby's rattle, among them. The most elemental project is a one-piece doll to amuse toddlers, but a charming rocking horse with a removable rider is of real heirloom quality. This project harkens back to the eighteenth century, to a region located between Czechoslovakia and Germany; it's a project demanding facility with woodworking equipment and with reading working drawings. Alice Joyce
