    1. My husbands eyes lit up when he saw this book! He couldn't get enough of it. He said it made him feel like he was back in Shop Class! The projects are a lot of fun. Most are based on musical instruments. I wish there was more variety (the only downside in my opinion). However, the projects are laid out to be more of a guideline than an exact do it this way sort of thing. You (the creator) are encouraged to go your own way & let it become what you want!The majority of the projects are done us [...]


    2. Snip, Burn, Solder, Shred : Seriously Geeky Stuff to Make With Your Kids lives up to it's title. First, this isn't a book just for kids. If you've had an interest in learning basic electronics and how to build simple circuits, or how to make various kinds of instruments, or just in general love to make things, this book has something in it for you. The projects are a little too complicated for little kids to do alone, but they could certainly help parents and learn from them. They are perfect fo [...]


    3. Buying how-to or DIY books can be something of a craps shoot: too often, the proffered simplicity or thriftiness is somewhat less than promised.Fortunately, David Erik Nelson's "Snip, Burn, Solder, Shred" escapes that trap and delivers a series of projects that are simple enough for novices and cheap enough for the most cash-strapped of parents.The book is broken into three sections: Kid Stuff, The Electro-Skiffle Band, and The Locomotivated, each loaded with fun projects and primers on things l [...]


    4. Despite the fact that I don't have kids, I read 1 billion books a year for kids or for adults who have kids(?????).This book was pretty cute. Again, no kids, so I don't know how easy it would be for small-humans to follow, and a few of the projects aren't that interesting to me (kites, etc). However, all the projects about musical instruments--pedals, synths, etc---are really easy and neato. I am really pleased that this book does such a good job of making these projects accessible to encourage [...]


    5. Snip, Burn, Solder, Shred is a really cool book on how to make Seriously geeky stuff with your kids. HONEST! Everything from a simple electric guitar to screen printed shirts. The great thunder drums and board games and even (safe) way to make a joy buzzer. I love the treasure chest to keep your special things in. Every kid needs that. And of course what family is not in need of a marshmallow muzzle loader? With just a lil ability to follow direction you too can be the king of geek and a cool da [...]


    6. Caveat: I read the whole book, but I haven't built any of the projects (yet). Does that disqualify me from writing a review of a book like this?Nelson does a great job of curating projects and of describing how to build them. He treats his readers with respect and I love how this book isn't clearly for adults or clearly for kids -- it's really a family book.I'm looking forward to building several of these projects, both with my kids and by myself.


    7. This book is incredible. It has really simple, fun, scientific, cheap things to do with kids or for the kid at heart. Makes me want to make a little milk carton putt-putt boat for my bathtub. Very cool ideas!



    8. A great book for parents looking for projects to do with their kids. Use of potentially dangerous items is described(solder irons) so may not be appropriate for younger kids
