PlansThis section is intended for confident craft makers who can read plans. Where the Projects section gives step-by-step instructions, the Plans section provides compact schematics and views with very few suggestions of how to turn your toys into reality. This lets me fit more plans into the same amount of space.
Without dozens of pages on minutia, not every detail is covered, nor is the order in which you do things. You may have to spend some time considering the exact position of hinges and other hardware. You may have to inspect photographs for more information.
Start with simple toys (such as "Paddles" on page 331) before attempting the more complicated toys (such as "Bench" on page 297). As you gain skill and confidence, I believe you'll find yourself working your way through toys in the Plans section without referring to any other part of the book.
"Not only is this book a useful educational reference, it is an entertaining one as well. The vast knowledge of the author, as well as his humor, shine through on every page."
