50 Woodworking Projects Kids Can Build

Book - 2005
Rate this:
With the demise of the shop class and the rise of the Xbox and iPod, fewer kids than ever are working with their hands. That leaves parents and grandparents wondering how to introduce young people to the pleasure of building things. The trick is choosing projects that children will actually do, and safely. Enter Jack McKee.......his 52 projects include toys, games, gadgets, musical instruments, signs, stools, stilts and boxes, all designed to excite kids, not overwhelm them. Introductory chapters give excellent advice on safety and tools. All I had to do was leave this book lying around; my 8-year-old daughter found it and picked her projects. -- Asa Christiana, Fine Woodworking.
