5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful and informative January 9, 2008
A great book for DIY enthusiasts, the projects were not hard at all. Most of them only took a day or two to build. I managed to create 23 of them so far and sold some on Ebay. The best part is that you get to decorate the bongs and pipes yourself. I also enjoyed the small tidbits of info that were presented as well. It's a great handbook.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent book January 21, 2013
By Zakry
I bought this as a christmas present. The recipient was quite excited about it. the shipping was faster than expected and the book was as described. the only bummer is some of the designs in the book aren't very good. but it makes up for that with a "bonus" vaporizer design.

I love this book. I have given it as a gift several times and, while I haven't necessarily utilized many of the designs detailed within, enjoy perusing the pages from time-to-time. It makes a fantastic "toilet book." :)

5.0 out of 5 stars The High HandyMan's Heaven.... March 9, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Warning: Do not attempt while stoned, or your craft will look like crap. Lots of fun craft to make your custom water pipes and smoking accessories all just a Lowes stop away. Great for lovers of Do-It-Yourself projects
