From School Library Journal
Adult/High School–This book is a strong entry in the DIY genre. The projects and accessories are all made almost entirely from inexpensive items one can buy in a hardware store. Each chapter focuses on a different type: washers, rope, metal connectors, nuts, vinyl, plastic, and rubber. Materials lists are complete with illustrations, and the clear instructions are numbered and illustrated. Finished products are modeled in fashion-forward color photographs. A glossary explains the original use for the hardware item, where to find it in the store, and which materials one needs to get from a craft store. Online supply sources are included. The layout is attractive and keeps the theme, from the distressed metal cover to the industrial-brown chapter dividers. The book is spiral bound inside to enable it to lie flat, but it also has a hard outer spine and cover, making it sturdy enough for library collections.–Jamie Watson, Harford County Public Library, MD
