Jim Makowicki's wooden toys show an attention to detail and sophistication of design that set them apart from the usual run-of-the-mill toy projects. This collection of toys includes 22 projects, primarily featuring transportation toys (cars, trains, trolleys, planes and boats) and educational toys.

For each project, there's a full-page photos of the toy, detailed drawings and patterns, a parts list, construction photos and clear step-by-step instructions on how to make the toy.
