Snip, Burn, Solder, Shred is packed with fun craft and toy-making projects for geeks on a budget. Inside, you'll find illustrated instructions for 24 quirky playthings. Part I- Kid Stuff contains child-friendly projects like the Lock-N-Latch Treasure Chest and a PVC TeePee; Part II- The Electro-Skiffle Band is devoted to homemade musical instruments; and Part III- The Locomotivated showcases moving toys, like a muzzleloader that shoots marshmallows and a steam-powered milk-carton boat.

Each project costs just $10 or less to make and is suitable for anyone, regardless of experience level. As you build, you'll learn useful sewing and carpentry skills, and the appendix offers a primer on electronics and soldering.

You (and your kids) will have hours of fun making projects like-
-A simple electric guitar
- An oversized joy buzzer that (safely) administers a 100-volt jolt
- Cool, mess-free, screen-printed T-shirts
- Kites made from FedEx envelopes
- Booming Thunderdrums made from salvaged x-ray film
- Classic board games like Go, Tafl, and Shut-the-Box

Whether you're a mom or dad in search of a rainy day activity, a Scout leader looking to educate and entertain your troop, or just a DIY weekend warrior, the projects in Snip, Burn, Solder, Shred will inspire and amuse you. Now, roll up your sleeves and make!
