Not in Stock. Available to Order.


Professional designer and woodworker Jim Makowicki's 22-project collection reflects uncanny historical detail and technical accuracy. Each ingeniously designed toy is a potential family heirloom, as a plaything or for display.

Makowicki's sophisticated toy designs are extraordinary. Some Making Heirloom Toys projects have over 50 pieces; one, a handsome ferry boat complete with vintage vehicles has over 100. There are simpler toys, too, all suited to the average woodworker's skills.

  • Projects are meticulously researched and include scale drawings that can be copier-enlarged into full-size working plans.
  • Readers get step-by-step details, including safety, design and finishing information.
  • Projects are mostly transportation toys: cars, trucks, airplanes, trains, boats and more.
