I know you have already gotten a bit of a preview of the fact that my boy likes to build with duct tape. I KNOW I have shown you pictures of his knight’s outfit. He is my duct tape engineer! So when the chance came to review “Duct Tape Engineer” I thought WOW…this is a book made for me and my lad.
The Duct Tape Engineer: The Book of Big, Bigger and Epic Duct Tape Projects is filled with things that the lad and I want to build, even dad poked his head in and said “neat idea”. We haven’t, at this point, actually built any of the items in the book to their full size, but we did build some mini versions of them. 🙂
What can you build? Included are plans for:
14 different builds to delight you, inspire your creativity, and.. save you money. Why spend 1000’s on a kayak, when you can build your own using plastic sheeting, duct tape and pvc pipe?
Alternatively, you could do the math and downsize them and make doll furniture or child-sized seating. All plans are for the adult person, so just doing the math and downsizing gets you inexpensive furniture that you can grow as your children do, or that can delight your offspring with doll furniture that they can pretty up to suit their tastes (or the preferences of their doll).
Each project includes a set of clear ingredients. I love that not only do you receive a written set, but are given a visual as well.
Instructions are as well done as the needed supplies. Text along with pictures. Everything is so clearly spelled out it makes each project a dream to build.
What did we make with it?
Nothing full sized….but we did make doll furniture using the plans just downsizing.
As you can see they also make excellent small polymer pet furniture as well! 🙂
This is a fantastic book. If you have a duct tape builder in your house, get this book. If you have a creative child, who is also good at doing math (or needs to practice it) and likes to build with duct tape…get this book. It’s fun and helps you see things that you too could create with duct tape. This a goodly thing to do! 🙂
