    April 15, 2015

    In his first book, designer and architect Holman introduces 31 different projects, all using salvaged or recycled materials. These designs are thoughtful and each arrangement is neatly organized with a list of materials and tools. While some of the designs are simplistic, construction is not necessarily easy. Projects cover seating, storage, lighting, and tables. Some standouts include a beautiful scrap wood table, a quirky pendant light made of medicine bottles, and a wheelbarrow chair. Other pieces are a bit rough, such as the bracket chair and storage with milk crates. Of particular value are recommendations for finding workspace for furniture building, speaking directly to the apartment or small rental dwellers. VERDICT College students or young professionals with limited income and space will find this handbook appealing. It pairs well with Philip Schmidt's PlyDesign and Christopher Stuart's DIY Furniture. Holman's mix of projects and grounded advice will definitely inspire.
