Handmade: A Hands-On Guide: Make the Things You Use Every Day
We live in a world where anything one might need is at one’s fingertips. Tap a few keys, put in a credit card number, and anything one wants is delivered to their door. Or one could make something — a chair or a belt or pendant lights or a table top fireplace or a homemade boombox. With this book and a few simple tools and materials, one can make a veritable plethora of useful and kitschy items. There are twenty-two projects in this book, and each is made accessible for anyone with a little persistence and a few tools through a very thorough write up.
After the introduction, there is a supplies list, well-written, clear instructions, and wonderful photographs of the steps needed for assembly and completion. Some projects also include a page with the maker’s story and photo. Some of the projects require more expensive or specialized equipment — such as a vinyl cutter for screen printing or a welder — and include where to find such equipment to use or get at reasonable prices. This book is well-written and laid out as well as inspiring for those without a great deal of experience. Don’t miss this one.
