"Snip, Burn, Solder, Shred is a geeky toy-making and craft book, stuffed with projects like sewing a stuffed sock squid, building a steam-powered milk-carton boat, soldering an oversized joy buzzer, and crafting working boomerangs. Readers create board games, musical instruments, and cool toys that move. The book assumes no prior knowledge of skills like carpentry, sewing, and soldering, and each project is explained from the ground up. Primers on topics like basic electronics help readers master foundational techniques so that anyone, regardless of their experience or skill level, can pick up this book and successfully build the projects. Projects are suitable for a wide range of builders and are all cheap, or even free, to build-best of all, once each project is built, readers have something totally sweet. Every project includes tips, tricks, and technical data that will help readers expand and modify the projects, or craft something totally new."--Resource description page.
