If you have some woodturning experience, you can now create something truly special for family and friends.

In Turned Toys, woodturning expert Mark Baker shows you how to create beautiful hand-crafted toys and games for the children in your life―all while developing your skills as a woodturner.

The projects range in difficulty from the cute and simple hedgehog to the detailed and complex disappearing ball trick. Other traditional childhood toys that you will learn to make include a spinning top, a lighthouse stacker, a pull-along train, and ring-turned pigs.

Looking to host a proper tea party? Baker shows you how to make everything you’ll need to go along with it, from teacups and saucers to a teapot and all of the goodies you can think of.

With step-by-step instruction, detailed photographs, and easy-to-follow diagrams throughout, Baker takes all of the mystery out of creating adorable toys that are beautiful, safe for children, and durable enough to actually play with. Woodturners of any skill level will benefit from Baker’s expertise, practical tips, low-cost solutions, and inspiring designs.

These beautiful hand-crafted toys are as enjoyable to make as they are to play with.

Clear step-by-step instructions, detailed photographs and easy-to-follow diagrams start with simple toys and increase in complexity.

Projects are a mixture of pure turned ones and also basic constructs, whereby turned items may be cut apart and resection to create something different.

The twenty charming projects include simple turned animals, spinning top, tea party items, skittles, pull-along train and indoor quoits.

Each project is designed to be tactile and visually attractive as well as fun to use, and all toys are long lasting and comply with safety standards.
