In addition to Mike Adamick's book containing 25+ awesome(tm) projects (anything over 25 is considered a free bonus), it also doubles as its own toolkit, hence the incredibly clever title for this review. You see that spine? That's not some sleepy parking space for Dewey Decimals to loiter upon--it's a working measuring stick, and all other family craft books shall be judged upon it.
Seriously, having a ruler on the book means one less thing to carry while crafting, and don't let the paperback cover fool you--this book is thick enough to make one sweet hammer. Need a saw? Two words: paper cut. The possibilities are endless, and sometimes painful, but like my dad always said, "Rub some dirt on it, and get me a beer." That's crafting, people.
Each of the projects featured in this book are loads of fun for the entire family, and my children are very excited about making something other than a mess and/or amends. To be honest, they don't think of me as a crafty guy, but Adamick's book is helping me prove otherwise, to which I say, "In your face, kids!"
If you enjoy spending time with your children and making the stuff of tangible memories, then you will love this book because it is awesome, and that is a place far north of "great."
Also, FWIW, the comments on thebloggess.com indicate that the author is competent beyond just the obvious marketing antics. Dang, now I'm probably going to have to buy this book to figure out why...
I really like the diverse range of projects-- some you can do in a few minutes, others you can spread out over a few days. Some projects are easy, and some require some skill. Also like different types of projects--woodworking, sewing, baking, painting and the emphasis on materials that you already have at home. I especially appreciate that most of the projects are open-ended-- the author provides a great starting point that can be taken in a million different directions.
This is the perfect gift for the modern dad who's willing to get his hands dirty-- not only in the garage or the yard, but in the kitchen and sewing room as well.
