Made to Last - A Compendium of Artisans, Trades & Projects
Made to Last showcases some of the weird and wonderful products being created today - from whiskey tumblers to mushroom knives, men's shoes and bamboo bikes - with profiles of their makers and related DIY projects that invite readers to act on their inspiration and get making themselves. These DIY suggestions are as varied as the products themselves, from how to treat and care for wood furniture to making your own canvas lunch bag. The book's own beautiful design ensures that it, too, is truly made to last.
