    Rodney Frost's collection of playful mechanical contraptions will captivate anyone who operates them--and they'll entice the creative woodworker too, because these whirligigs are as much fun to make as to maneuver. The secret to these movable marvels: propellers and other action-filled parts made from wood or metal. Full-size schematics and drawings, plus detailed written instructions, will guide woodwokers smoothly through building, carving, and assembling such enchanting projects as Grandad's Night Out, a wild and wonderful gadget with a handsomely dressed figure that dances on a box; the Politically Incorrect Weather House (it contains a hygrometer to measure humidity); and Mr. Muscles & Little Ms. Threemore, two exercise buffs who work out!

    Rodney Frost is the author of Making Mad Toys & Mechanical Marvels in Wood, Creative Kinetics, and The Nature of Woodworking. He is a graduate of Brighton College of Art with a national diploma in design and a teaching certificate from the University of London and has appeared on the TV programs In the Workshop, Canadian Gardening TV, and Hands over Time. With Making Whirligigs, Whimsies, and Folk Toys, he continues his tradition of thoughtful and thorough designs, some old and some definitely never seen before. Rodney lives in Orillia, Ontario, where he sews clothes for himself, plays his euphonium, and wonders what's coming next.
