Our Cricket Xylophone Plan shows you how to make a cricket that can really chirp out a tune. As it rolls, its legs bound up and down and its antennae double as hammers. Makes a great gift for kids, or they can help you out with the project. Full-scale patterns make the scroll saw work a breeze - just glue them onto the wood and cut them out. Chosen from among the most popular plans in the Woodworker's Journal, this selection includes plenty of full-color photographs, a detailed exploded view, materials list, and step-by-step instructions.
