This review is from: Making Mechanical Marvels in Wood (Paperback)
It does just what it says in the title. Enticing colour illustrations on the cover, lead the reader into a world of real mechanical systems, miniaturized and converted into really excellent working models, which can be used as automatons, models to teach principles, or just good decorations. The introduction is short but covers materials and tools, but accepts that the reader has ability, skills and some equipment. Then the projects begin. The book is both a good read and a an excellent project mentor. You will make the mechanical marvels, and get maximum enjoyment from them. Similar themes are found in Making Wooden Mechanical Models.

This review is from: Making Mechanical Marvels in Wood (Paperback)
This is an absolutely excellent book with very good explanations on techniques with no skating over the tricky bits and the plans are beautifully precise. The only problem is that all the dimensions given inches and a fraction of an inch and it sometimes looks quite daunting to have to work to 32nds or even 64ths of an inch-however you don't always have to, and before starting any project I suggest you rescale everything in metric wherever possible.
