Overview

The next time your child asks you to build her a lemonade stand or dollhouse, don't blink and swallow. Turn to Fun Projects for You and the Kids,  instead.

David Stiles starts with a straightforward discussion of tools and materials, including a guide to joints, and then launches into simple designs for building just about anything a kid or parent might dream up. There are ideas for clubhouses and a tepee made of branches and canvas, for toy cannons and Huck Finn-style rafts, and for swings and rowboats. There are also plans for indoor projects like piƱatas, clay castles, toy bins, trains, and even a scooter and spaceship.

David Stiles, the king of do-it-yourself projects, is like an ultra-handy neighbor to help you get the job done quickly and easily.
