Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The term “crafting” used to call to mind woven baskets topped with bows, braided friendship bracelets, and painted angelic-faced figurines. Thanks to Instructables.com, crafting has shed its wings—and its ribbons—and has become a pastime appreciated by both men and women.

In Manly Crafts, readers will learn the basics of whittling wood, melting vinyl, and creating optical illusions using simple, everyday items. They will find uses for old metal, leather, and hemp, constructing most of their crafts by hand with very few tools.

After reading Manly Crafts, readers will no longer panic when a coveted watchband breaks. Instead, they will coolly use a woven paracord to replace the band with little effort. When the living room needs a bit more life, crafters will rise to the occasion and deliver Dalí-inspired melting clocks, geometric cut-paper table lamps, and eco-friendly lights.

In addition to the accessories and decor mentioned above, Manly Crafts readers also learn how to complete the following projects:

• Mad scientist lights
• Sprocket and inner tube belts
• Cobra weave key fobs
• Viking-inspired wooden spoons
• Leather bracelets
• Five-cent wedding bands
• Wooden-faced wristwatches
• And many more!

Synopsis:

Tooling, whittling, grinding, melting, and hammering? Welcome to the world of crafting, gentlemen!
