From founder Ben Uyeda of Homemade-Modern.com comes a collection of 30 DIY projects to furnish your home and outdoor space made from durable, recycled materials-metal, wood, and concrete. Focused on sustainable pieces with a high-end feel, this book is filled with projects that are both beautiful and easy to construct.


Homemade Modern walks 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. Not only will you save money, but you'll also make environmentally sustainable pieces that are solidly built, using real materials. All you need is a sense of adventure to make furniture that looks amazing and that you can actually afford.

  • Concrete kitchen island
  • Herb garden wall with ceramic pots
  • Wood pendant lamps
  • Plywood coffee table
  • Ironbound bookcase
  • Platform Bed
  • Geometric dog house

and more!

In The Press

"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
