"HomeMade Modern will walk you step-by-step through the process of making furniture, from where to buy the materials (or where to scavenge!) to how to make the most of the tools you own. All you need is a sense of adventure to make furniture that looks amazing and that you can actually afford. As much fun to browse through as it is 'user friendly' to apply, HomeMade Modern is very highly recommended."—Wisconsin Bookwatch"[Uyeda] fervently believes in the reuse, recycle, or do-without doctrine, and his 30 designs for every room in the house (and outside as well) prove it... The instructions are detailed and illustrated, complete with tool icons for each step and answers to such questions as: What can go wrong? Are there alternatives? What if you don't want it anymore? Smart and practical DIY household ideas from an entrepreneur who started with a how-to YouTube video."—Booklist
