Book #15 Concrete Crafts by Alan Wycheck

I borrowed this book from one of my daughter-in-laws. the subtitle is “Making Modern Accessories for the Home and Garden”.

Glancing through it I thought it not very suitable as it was very US oriented. The measurements were all imperial, the products used were available in the US, and even the language was American (e.g. mixture was to be made to look like “sticky oatmeal” – I assume that is porridge!). The projects also seemed to be large, the first project was to make paving slabs (what the author calls “pavers”).

But when I read the book I found I liked the step by step guides, each was accompanied by lots of  helpful pictures. The choice of the projects (particularly the early ones) didn’t inspire me to try making any of these artefacts, but I know a lot more now about concrete making then I did!
