Book Review: More PVC Projects for the Outdoorsman

Forbes’ first book, PVC Projects for the Outdoorsman, became a runaway best-seller with do-it-yourselfers, outdoorsmen and survivalists alike.

in his new More PVC Projects for the Outdoorsman book he’s taken his no-frills approach to creating inexpensive shelters, primitive weapons, sturdy outdoor furniture and hunting and fishing gear and come up with more than 30 new projects, all made with durable, cheap PVC pipe.

Using photos and easy-to-follow instructions, this book guides you through such projects as a slingshot, brush bow, shooting bench, spotting scope stock (this pvc stock is a favorite of mine), bow-fishing reel, wall tent, animal pen, pickup truck shelter, firewood cradle and many more.

If you failed woodshop but still want to enjoy the dual satisfaction of building something yourself and saving loads of money in the process, this is the perfect do-it-yourself book for you.

The book is pretty cool, and the concepts inside are great.  I love the idea of using something so readily available inexpensively to make items that you may need.

PVC projects are in the reach of almost anyone, the simple projects give confidence to tackle larger and more difficult things.  It is a good step in the incremental process of becoming “handy”.

I have made several projects out of PVC pipe, and find it a great DIY material.

In PVC Projects for the Outdoorsman you will learn how to make inexpensive and practical gear such as snowshoes, an equipment raft, shelters–including a teepee and a portable ground blind–a boot dryer and even a blowgun in your home workshop out of durable PVC pipe.

Photos and easy-to-follow instructions show you how to construct more than 30 projects.

I haven’t done all the projects in the book, but it has given me a lot to think about as well as fertilize my mind to keep it actively looking for other ways to use common materials.

This book was so popular that it spawned a sequel More PVC Projects, I have that one also.

The idea of using PVC to make things is pretty cool, at least in my own opinion.  It is workable with few tools, is cheap, and you can buy it in any town in the nation.

PVC Projects for the Outdoorsman is a good book to have around the house as it shows how to start MacGyvering solutions out of common materials.

I use it as a source of ideas, and through the ideas given I have used it to make garden hoop houses, tarp coverings for my rabbits, and a rabbit tractor, none of which are in the book proper, but the ideas stemmed from the book.
