In a world of toys that are electronic and battery driven, it's good to see that beautiful, rugged wooden toys are still being made.
Les Neufeld has designed a dozen classic toy trucks, all of wood. They include a monster truck, a pickup with fifth-wheel trailer, a tow truck, a logging truck, a log loader and skidder, a forklift and five others. For each he provides plans, materials lists and detailed instructions, well illustrated with numerous color photographs.
Tools required are a bandsaw, sander, drill press and normal hand tools. The results are toys that will be treasured for generations.
