Wooden shipping pallets have found an unlikely second life: beautiful, handcrafted home décor without the designer price. The DIY market has long been drawn to refurbishing furniture and interior design on a budget, but easily accessible wood pallets have opened up all-new and inspiring ways to personalize a home in an eco-friendly, low-cost way. Until recently, upcycling required crafters to hunt for goods and furniture at yard sales and online, and many refurbishing books could only offer tips for specific pieces. With wooden pallets, the scope of the project is boundless, and warehouses and stores are happy to give them away for free. What was once a scavenger hunt and test of skill for experienced DIYers can now be an easy weekend project for even the newest of crafters. Wood Pallet Workshop will be a book of inspiration as well as a hardworking instructional guide for an array of projects. With 20 easy-to-follow designs ranging from coffee tables and wine racks to decorative wall art and step-by-step photos, this book will be a go-to instructional guide for DIYers looking for simple and creative ways to decorate their homes.

A longtime Seattle city councilmember and one of the city’s most effective and inspiring leaders of progressive political and social change since the 1960s, Nick Licata outlines how to get organized and master the tactics to create change by leveraging effective communication strategies (such as creating community through online channels like Facebook and Twitter), how to effectively engage traditional media channels, and how to congregate local and national people power. Licata demonstrates by example that we can fight city hall. Balancing an idealistic vision of a better world with the clear-eyed pragmatism necessary to build it from the ground up, this smart and powerful book will empower any activist with the tools they need to effect change.
