Guerilla Furniture Design: A Manual for Building Lean, Modern Furnishings from Salvaged and Sustainable Materials by Will Holman
This book shows how to upcycle a variety of reclaimed items into furniture. I do like the idea of using reclaimed items to build with. The book includes a table made from an old door, a cardboard chair, traffic cone lamp, road sign chair, milk crate credenza, yogurt tub lamp and more. To me, the furniture is very functional and industrial looking and much of it is not really fashionable or attractive and some things, like the yogurt tub lamp just look like trash made into a lamp. The instructions look pretty difficult to me and I think you really have to know what you are doing and have a lot of tools and a shop to make these items. I received this book free to review from Netgalley.
