Ductigami: The Art of the Tape (Paperback)
It's back -- with more tape and more projects: 18 projects using the do-it-yourselfer's not-so-secret weapon.
NASA has a written policy that requires every space shuttle mission to carry at least one roll of "the gray tape." Duct tape now comes in designer colors, and for the color-shy there's a transparent version. The once-humble tape has hit the big time, and now there are duct-tape clubs, competitions and websites. In the words of Red Green, head possum on the PBS-syndicated The Red Green Show, "Spare the duct tape, spoil the job."
In this instructive, entertaining and downright funny how-to book, Joe Wilson shows how to rip, cut and fold ordinary duct tape to make 18 amazing projects, including:
- Barbecue apron
- Tool belt
- Cell phone holder
- Baseball cap
- TV chair caddy
- Raingear for pets
- Toilet roll cover
- Halloween masks.
Ductigami is more fun than a crossword puzzle, more useful than a welder's certificate, and more durable than a rechargeable battery. With duct tape it's easy to create a remarkable personal gift for any occasion.
