Overview

The Boy Mechanic--bigger and better! This handsome hardcover features every one of the fantastic vintage projects and handy advice from both The Boy Mechanic and The Boy Mechanic Makes Toys.
Taken from the turn-of-the-last-century volumes of The Boy Mechanic, these 359 projects are still doable and delightful today. Like a miscellany for the home how-to crowd, the book offers instructions for making toy boats and planes, hammocks, sleds, skates, and special equipment for your own spy lab (such as periscopes), as well as fortune-telling tricks, illusions, games, and more. Charming original illustrations throughout make this an appealing, nostalgic, and fun guide for everyone.
