Making your own tools can be one of the most satisfying of woodworking projects and anyone with novice skills and a limited shop can have success making their own wood plane. In its fourth printing, published by Hickory Ridge Press (my self-publishing concern) the book is offered in soft-cover, 192 pp, 245 color photos, 93 drawings, Printed in the USA on 100# glossy stock. FOLD the fabric over the ribon, closing it in but ensuring no glue gets on the ribbon - you don't want the ribbon stuck down just yet. MAKE SURE there is an even amount of ribbon sticking out of both sides of the cape - this will tie the cape around your neck. GLUE the ribbon to the fabric just inside the opening on either side of the collar - this will keep the ribbon from sliding out. TRACE images onto your sticky felt sheets to make more decorations - lightning bolts, stars, etc.
Don’t forget you can layer your shapes- make a tri-colored star or a two-toned lightning bolt!
WRITE your superhero name in bubble writing on your sticky felt and CUT the letters out to STICK onto your cape.
TIP: Print the cover separate on a colored piece of paper, and the remaining four pages front to back to create an actual booklet. Making Mechanical Marvels In Wood This book is not unlike Making Wooden Mechanical Models which I reviewed here.

Planes probably top the list of miraculous woodworking tools and shop-made wood planes are as good or better as any, and a fraction of the cost of high-end metal planes. The book or video will guide you from start-to-finish, but put the two together (and take advantage of the Free Shipping offer) and you'll have the most in-depth and thorough coverage available of this enjoyable woodworking project. It was the pure delight expressed by so many students at having the simple, yet subtle mysteries of the hand plane uncovered that inspired me. Superman or Wonder Woman can rock this outfit, styled and decorated just the way they like it.
There are, however, some important differences between the two books.Like Making Wooden Mechanical Models, this book isn't specifically written for automaton makers. A good wood plane will make invisible edge joints, trim end-grain cleanly and accurately, bring surfaces to gleaming perfection, and allow you to work with extraordinary accuracy. The book works great as a bench-top reference and self-paced instructional guide and includes many fundamentals of fine woodworking as well. I was introduced to wooden hand-planes many years ago as a student of the craftsman so often associated with this particular style of hand-plane, James Krenov.
Both books feature basic wooden machines as finished projects in themselves.Making Mechanical Marvels differs in that many of the projects in this book are key building blocks to making contemporary wooden automata. The video pulls it all together and presents information and nuance that truly only comes to life in moving pictures.

For example, projects such as the cam and follower, the Scotch yoke, the fast-return actuator, and the Geneva wheel are all elements often found in an automaton.The projects in this book are very handsome and would make nice gifts. Wood planes can be adjusted more accurately, and will hold those adjustments better than any other type of plane. Additional wood tool projects include making a plane adjusting hammer and a carving or marking knife. Students of mine had suggested on many occasions that a book was needed on the topic that would appeal to novice and experienced woodworkers alike. They can also accept extra-thick blades of highest quality steel (A-2 cryogenic is my choice). You see, building your own hand-plane is not just an end to acquiring a great hand tool, but also serves as an elegant framework for learning many fundamentals of fine woodworking.
This book has very clear instructions and drawings to get you up to speed making wooden mechanisms. Making Wooden Models is equivalent to Volume 2 in which you tackle some more complicated projects.The book has well-drawn line diagrams and a series of color pages in the center.
