Rate this:
Not so long ago, that old shed behind the house was where our fathers and grandfathers found things to do. Whether they were busy building a birdhouse or staining a door, they puttered for hours to the background sounds of baseball on the transistor. The numbing allure of Game Boys and cable television has changed all that, but 101 Things to Do in a Shed is Robert Beattie's irresistible enticement to get fathers and sons off the couch to bond once again with hammer and nails in that largely forgotten backyard sanctuary.
Nostalgically designed with a newsprint interior, this richly illustrated how-to book allows novices and veterans alike to construct everything from a kite to a kaleidoscope, a worm hotel to a woodturning lathe. Through clear illustrations and detailed instructions, the book describes how to build each project, also providing information on hand tool techniques and a glossary of technical terms. Chock-full of fun ideas for father-and-son activities, 101 Things to Do in a Shed may appeal to Dad so much he wants to keep it to himself
