It's time to see all that concrete can do. With a small investment in tools, materials, and time, you can build a wide variety of useful and beautiful projects in concrete—a new garden path, a bird bath, indoor accent pieces, and more.

Mike Warren of Instructables fame (aka mikeasaurus) starts by walking you through the basics of working with concrete. You'll learn how to create smooth, even surfaces as well as important techniques used throughout the book, such as casting. The remaining chapters feature a wide variety of projects:
  • Garden: Glowing garden globes, cloth planters, birdbath (leaf embossed), soda-bottle cast candle holders, birdhouse (with PVC), pavers
  • Outdoor living: Concrete coasters, pillow-shaped tealight holders, doggy dish, tabletop fireplace, house numbers, garden décor (balls/spheres)
  • Home and office: Embossed concrete candles, pendant lamp, desk lamp, key rack, door stop (with marine rope), furniture legs, drawer pulls (cast Legos), pen holder
  • Gifts: Magnetic planter, stool (top only with wood legs), wall hook, wine rack, bookends, serving platter, ornaments
Whether you're excited about improving the functionality of your garden or you want to experiment with a more industrial look in your home, this all-in-one guide has all the information you need to confidently create with concrete.
