Wood Shop: 18 Building Projects Kids Will Love to Make
Come on, kids: Grab a hammer, step up to the workbench, and get ready to measure, saw, drill, and make cool things! Wood Shop is an exciting introduction for today's kids to an ages-old tradition: building with wood.
With step-by-step photographs and clear instructions, aspiring woodworkers learn essential skills such as how to drive a nail, use a power drill, "measure twice, cut once," and saw correctly. Then the fun begins as they put these skills to work building 18 cool and creative projects to furnish the wood shop, decorate their bedrooms and homes, and create their own play equipment. Favourite projects include the Sky-High Stilts, Suspended Shelves, an Easy-Up Tent, and a Mighty Message Board. Wood Shop is the perfect gift for tinkerers, young makers, fans of Lego toys, and want-to-be carpenters and engineers.
