From deconstruction methods and salvaging tips to plotting efficient cutting plans and devising creative new uses for everyday items, this book is packed with clever ways to obtain low-cost materials and ingenious projects you can build yourself.

When you build with secondhand stuff, you'll save money and reduce pressure on your local landfill. This second edition of the bestselling book contains new projects, including a pallet table, door-backed kitchen island, and a reclaimed window greenhouse. Turn high-quality salvaged materials into clever, useful things for your home.--COVER.
