Projects that not only look good, but with visible wheels, cranks pistons and other moving parts made of wood they move as well. Project included; oil pumping rig; flywheel propeller machine; harmonic oscillation punch machine; reciprocating engine; cam & for machine combustion engine; pendulum escapement machine. The plans call for a challenging variety of techniques and procedures; laminating, cutting cyma curves, tenon wedging, precision drilling, pegging, whittling and more. By completing these projects, woodworkers will gain the know-how to build wooden models of their own design. Machines that beg to be set into action, turning the simplest movements into marvelous feats.
