Overview


Duct tape has gotten a reputation as the quick-fix tape for every situation. However, did you know that you can use duct tape to create practical items for everyday use? Did you also know that duct tape now comes in a variety of colors, so your creations can be fun and stylish? Originating from Instructables, a popular project-based community made up of all sorts of characters with wacky hobbies and a desire to pass on their wisdom to others, Practical Duct Tape Projects contains ideas from a number of authors who nurse a healthy urge to create anything possible from duct tape.

Practical Duct Tape Projects provides step-by-step instructions on a variety of useful and fun objects involving duct tape. Guided through each endeavor by detailed photographs, the reader will create articles of clothing, tools, and more, such as:

  • Fishing net
  • Messenger bag
  • Wallet with change pouch
  • Duck tub stopper
  • Laptop case
  • Pencil case
  • And much more!

The Instructables community has provided a compilation of guides on a variety of duct tape exploits. The most outrageous projects are definitely the most fun, and this book shows that duct tape can make just about anything.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Crafts made out of duct tape are still popular. Presented here is a broad array of projects, all previously published on Instructables.com. The projects are complex, with such unique creations as lawn chairs, a hoodie, waterproof pouches, and a variety of wallets. Sadly, however, the instructions and photographs translated poorly from screen to page. The orders of construction are not clear, and the photos are murky at best. A detailed table of contents makes up for lack of an index. VERDICT While these are more sophisticated and diverse duct tape creations than found in other books, instructions tend to be bewildering owing to the lack of organization. For a good, simplified book on duct tape projects, see Joe Wilson's Ductigami. A marginal purchase.
