Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Long ago, my parents enrolled me in a kids' woodworking class, and it was transformative for this bookish little girl. Not everyone has access to such a class anymore (or a parent who knows their way around a shop), but this book just might fill the gap." —"Make "magazine ...an easy to understand guide written for boys and girls between the ages of 9 and 12. It includes step-by-step instructions and plenty of color photography... - Woodshop News This is the first good book I've seen for young woodworkers. - Scott Phillips, Host of PBS American Woodshop This book is great at teaching kids how to read drawings, measure and transfer dimensions, and construct a variety of designs using basic hardware tools. Great step-by-steps for beginners, too! Make a toolbox, birdhouse, or even a racecar! - Pack-O-Fun Whether you’d like to help a youngster get started with woodworking or learn the basics yourself, Kid Crafts: Woodworking, by John Kelsey, is a good investment. The book is divided into four chapters: “All About Wood,” “Woodworking Supplies,” “Tools” and “Projects.” Clear plans, numerous photos and step-by-step instructions make the book easy to understand. The projects can be built with simple hand tools and range from fun (toys and a birdhouse) to practical (a toolbox, bookshelf and picture frame). This is a great introduction to woodworking, even for adults. - Mother Earth News Kid Crafts Woodworking starts at the very beginning, with short sections on, among other things, the properties of wood, gluing and metal fasteners. Nothing long or boring, just the basics, for a kid-length attention span. - Canadian Woodworking & Home Improvement Woodworking is designed to appeal to children between 9 and 12, but dads looking for a fun review of their junior high shop class will enjoy it too.  - Old Schoolhouse Magazine
