Wooden Tools For Kids

Wooden Tools for Kids Book

Inside the book are detailed instructions for making twenty wooden tools for kids. They include fine woodworking tools like a draw knife, dovetail saw, and marking gauge. There are also instructions for common tools like a hammer, screwdriver set, and square.

Some of my personal favorites are a level with dowel bubble tubes, and a Krenov style hand plane. These tools are so realistic, and they make it easy for a child to pretend that they are working in the shop with their parents.

With such a comprehensive set that is easy to make, the are sure to become a family treasure.  The glue roller, leather faced strop, and flat ruler are great looking too.

The book is available on Amazon Here: Wooden Tools For Kids

All pieces are glued together and then dowels are used in key places for strength. This is an older style of making things that has stood the test of time.
