A Treasury of Wooden Toys, Volume 3 offers detailed "how-to" construction information for building a selection of wooden toy projects by home craftsman. The four, full-color, illustrated chapters contain step-by-step instructions for building and operating two different time-tested toy sailboats and two rubber band powered historical toy submarines. One of the sailboats and one of the submarine toys involves turning the hull on a wood lathe. Each chapter includes full-size and dimensioned scale plans drawn by the author. The sailboats are quite sea-worthy, and can be pre-set to sail long straight courses without fear of being capsized by a wind gust, or sinking while out on the water. The submarines are designed for back yard swimming pools approximately thirty feet in length. They can be set to dive deep, run along under water, and surface again as the rubber bands wind down. With a different setting of the diving planes, the subs will run fast on the surface of the pool. Since the submarines are designed with positive buoyancy, they should always end their runs on the surface. The toys in this volume are intended for children old enough to be taught how to operate them and care for them. The sailboats have both a rudder and sail setting to adjust to different wind speed and direction. The submarines require hand-winding of the rubber band motor, and adjustment of the diving planes for desired operation. In both cases, adult help is suggested initially to teach the operation of boats that mimic full-scale water craft.
