In this day and age of mass-produced plastic toys, it’s so nice to see a hand-made wooden toy. Toys that have character in their simplicity, but never short in fun or imagination. There’s definitely a sense of great satisfaction when a child puts down his Transformer to play with a toy you built with your own two hands. So I thought I’d step back into history and talk a little about Folk Toys this week.
To start things off, this week’s Book of the Week is Folk Toys: Patterns & Projects for the Scroll Sawby Ken Folk. This book includes 19 patterns for the scroll saw with detailed measured drawings. The patterns range in difficulty from beginner to advanced. A great place to start if you’re looking into creating some ‘old fashioned fun’. Check it out!
