You're about to feel like one of Santa's toymakers. Christmas doesn't have to be around the corner to start turning wooden toys that are sure to delight the kids (both big and small) in your life. There's something about these simple, yet satisfying treasures that bring out the inner child in us all. Now you can join the thousands of woodturners who have learned to turn with the incomparable dean of teachers, Richard Raffan, through his best-selling books and DVDs.

Woodturners of all levels, start your engines because Turning Toys with Richard Raffan, an informative and inspiring step-by-step DVD, teaches you how to make a wheelie bug, a racing car, wands, tops, and so many other favorite projects you'll want to twirl and wave, roll and spin! There are 8 wonderful hand-turned wooden toy projects in all, and each one is easy to make—and will surely make someone smile.

This 160-minute DVD shows you how to:

  • Learn tricks of the trade including clever tactics for salvaging snafus like catches and wood splitting
  • Identify exactly how the cutting edge should relate to the surface you're cutting
  • Stand properly to support and hold the tools so that working at your lathe is comfortable
  • Create a measurable difference in your lathe skills

In no time, you’ll make fun, educational toys that spark the imagination, improve hand-eye coordination, and are powered solely by joy. What a refreshing alternative to electronic games! And to reinforce the new skills culled from watching and listening to Richard Raffan's DVD, be sure to read and then reread the companion book Turning Toys with Richard Raffan to lock in your knowledge.

Worth the Watch! Review by Matt

I bought the book early and couldn't wait for the video. This video brought the pages of the book to life and make the projects even more exciting to consider. Richard is an excellent instructor and always produces quality in his turning work and this video is no exception. You will not be disappointed by purchasing this DVD and I would also recommend the book as well. You'll find far more than toy projects in them if you are passionate about your woodturning--they are packed with insights and skill building opportunities!
