Remember the handcrafted mischief of the gangs on The Little Rascals, Gilligan's Island, and The Swiss Family Robinson?
This cleverness is back in the old-fashioned fun of Treehouses and Other Cool Stuff You Can Build. Imagine building an old-fashioned go-cart, an A-frame treehouse, a portable lemonade stand, a seesaw, a scooter skateboard, a tub fiddle, and even the ultimate in entertainment-an erupting volcano.
Also included is a useful section on carpentry tips and tools such as: Sawhorse, Saw Guide and Crosscutting, Ripping Wood, Pilot Holes and Drilling Screws, Toolbox.
David and Jeanie Stiles have been writing "how-to" books together for the past twelve years. Most recently, the couple built a treehouse on The Today Show in Rockefeller Center in New York. They divide their time between New York City and East Hampton, where they live in a renovated barn.
