Subtitle The Man's Guide to Practical Projects, Backyard Ballistics, and Glorious Gags
Dude Crafts is loaded with more than 50 slightly twisted, but somehow useful, projects that will keep crafty men out of trouble (or, sometimes, in it).
Whether making life easier with ingenious hacks or providing self-amusement, the 50 projects presented in Dude Crafts are sure to get any guy's creative wheels turning. These DIY projects will get you on the path to developing your own creations, and impressing your friends.
You'll learn how to:
- Craft an iPad cover from an old book
- Build a metal forge out of a busted microwave
- Cook a meal in the dishwasher
- Re-purpose an electric saw into a cocktail blender
- Fashion a Swiss army knife for your keys
- Outfit an unsuspecting co-worker’s office chair with an air horn
Each project is accompanied by a parts list and step-by-step photo instructions to get you building; often by hacking subpar stock goods or upcycling discarded objects into functional works of art and conversation pieces. No matter how off-kilter the project may appear on the surface, it's sure to payoff as a useful tool, an art piece, the punch line to a practical joke or, best of all, a combination of all three.
Whatever the motive—to solve a problem, to play a joke, or for self-entertainment—Dude Crafts will get dudes off the sofa and into the workshop!
