If you or anyone in your family knows his way around a workshop, then Upcycling Outdoors by Max McMurdo (www.quartoknows.com) will provide 20 different ways to transform recycled materials into useful outdoor projects.

The creativity showcased here is amazing, turning old doors into a unique storage shed, bicycle wheels into a firepit, an old birdcage and lampshades into outdoor lighting, and old scaffold boards into a new dog feeding station. If you already have an assortment of tools on hand, McMurdo gives you detailed instructions on creating new useful items out of castoff materials.
