Great book for a rainy day. You're going to need some pretty mad drawing skills, but there are templates at the back of the book. I think the Table Leg Garage was my favourite design, but there are some pretty neat ideas here.

Lots of fun stuff, different levels of difficulty-small investment in some tools and supplies, but worth it for the fun with your kid
