When it comes to making that special wooden toy, space is the new frontier. Wooden toy designs have changed very little since long before we first landed on the moon: plenty of cars, p-prop planes, trucks, and trains and, yes, that occasional Buck Rodgers-era rocket but few projects that hint at the world of the future. No longer. With Wooden Toy Spacecraft, the iconic wooden toy blasts off into the 21st century with this collection of 12 state-of-the-art spacecraft that you can build in a weekend. Going well beyond tired old rocket ships, woodworker Gonzalo Ferreyra offers up an intergalactic fleet of original designs that can fly proudly alongside the classics we know from film, television, and our real-world history of space exploration. Dozens of detailed photographs and clear, concise instructions make even the most challenging techniques easy to conquer. With a few pieces of lumber, some cut-offs from your scrap box, and a healthy dose of future-vision, space geeks of all ages can craft a beautiful, awe-inspiring vehicle to proudly display or to gift to that special kiddo for hours of imaginative play. AUTHOR: Gonzalo Ferreyra's day job for close to thirty years has been in various capacities in the book industry, but on weekday evenings and weekend mornings he can be found in his woodshop working on an ambitious mid-century furniture piece or tinkering to see what he can create from the fantastic cut-offs in his scrap bin. He lives in Castro Valley, California, with his wife and two small dogs, and likes to torment his two daughters by asking them to join him on a "quick" visit to the lumberyard. SELLING POINTS: Wooden toys remain as popular as ever as woodworking projects and gifts Woodworkers are constantly searching for new project ideas Ideal projects for the ever-expanding, multi-billion dollar universe of Star Wars fans The easy-to-make designs require minimal materials and can be finished in a weekend
