Synopsis: Folk toys, with their simple, rustic charm and virtual indestructibility, have been fascinating children and adults alike for almost two centuries. They are uncomplicated, yet often ingenious in design and operation. Best of all, making them requires only basic woodworking skills and a desire to create lasting treasures. In American Folk Toys, author John R, Nelson, Jr. takes the reader back to a simpler time when low-tech, one-of-a-kind craftsmanship was the norm. In it, readers will learn to make folk toys using the same hand tools yesterday's toy makers used over 150 years ago.

This charming book:
-- Makes an ideal gift for woodworkers, history buffs, toy collectors and anyone interested in starting a folk toy business.
-- Offers over 30 toy projects with detailed instructions including a Carousel, Climbing Bear, Sailboat, Checkers, Doll House and more.
-- Gives historically accurate and fascinating information about each toy.
-- Covers materials and tools, painting, staining and varnishing.
