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. From timber beams to hardwood flooring to windows, doors, glass, and more, salvaging building materials can save you thousands of dollars. This book is a hands-on, do-it-yourself guide that shows you how to identify materials that can be salvaged efficiently and give you step-by-step instructions on how to build cool things with what you find. When you build with secondhand stuff, you'll save money and reduce pressure on your local landfill.
