Enjoyed this book a lot, it has lots of ideas and hints and tips.
However, it is very much American based, both in subject matter and tools and equipment.
Would love a similar book that's been written in and for UK readers.

I bought this book before I retired as a Design and Technology teacher in a secondary school. I found the projects to be excellent for the more able students in a subject which is increasingly turning to CAD/CAM. While I understand that students should be familiar with the processes used in "real life" I think it is essential that they also understand how to use hand tools and basic materials. This is one of several books I bought which I believe further this ideal and highly recommend it, especially for after-school clubs. There is also the fact that kids love things which do something, and this book is filled with that kind of project.

Found this book very useful, but the propellers are quite difficult to make by hand. Found my table saw very handy

Bought for my husband so he hasn't seen it yet.

It is exactly what it is.....a book of projects. However, I cannot tell as to whether they are easy to do, or not. They look pretty complex to me and the fact that they are done on squared paper made me go cock-eyed.......like ironing polka dots! I don't know how you guys do it. I would have made the drawings a bit darker under those circumstances, but that's maybe just me.

It seems the moment you open the book, you start.....a bit like going to school :-D

I believe Anders S Lunde has a good reputation for the making of action whirligigs, so I hope to see something good standing in our garden in the summer.

From what I see, I would recommend this book. It looks like fun for the serious toymaking brigade.

I can recommend this book to anyone who is interested in whirligigs and would like to make one. It gives many examples and explains how to make your own.

Simple designs, which make a great talking point in any garden. You don't have to stick exactly to a design, its the ideas that come from them, so a simple modification can lead to something more personal. Make a whirligig for that person who has everything as a gift!
