Description



About the Book



Grab a roll of duct tape and get started on some unforgettable mega projects with Duct Tape Engineer: The Book of Big, Bigger, and Epic Duct Tape Projects.



Book Synopsis



Duct Tape Engineer: The Book of Big, Bigger, and Epic Duct Tape Projects shows you how to create the most enjoyable and impressive projects you've ever made--and they all start with a simple strip of duct tape. Build furniture, bags, outdoor items and more using simple tools and materials, with no special engineering skills needed.

Start with duct tape basics that will aid in assembly: Learn cutting and tearing methods and taping techniques (yes, there's more to it than slapping it down). Discover how to make sturdy duct tape sheets that can be cut and shaped. Using easily accessible tools and supplies like a utility knife and heavy-duty cardboard boxes, try your hand at making a desk and desk chair. Grab some foam and make a backpack, or create a custom hammock. Build a geodesic dome, and go truly epic with a giant pyramid catapult.

Every project includes step-by-step instructions and clear diagrams and photos. Don't miss Lance Akiyama's tips and suggestions for supplies, project variations, and material substitutions. Follow the solid construction techniques and you'll ensure that these DIY projects will become favorite classroom activities and family projects.

Among the projects are:

  • A lightweight bed frame and full-size dresser with working drawers
  • Outdoor pieces like a hammock and garden swing
  • A heavy-duty toolbox with pockets galore, and a stylish two-color messenger bag
  • Ballistics, including a slingshot
  • A kayak!


These projects are real, they work, and are super fun. Roll up your sleeves and let the engineering begin!
