This book is great if you really don't like the idea of spending 1000+ on custom made bondage gear. Great tips for building your own basic furniture with tons of great ideas for modifying existing ones. Good for the kinkster on a budget.

It's got everything; highly recommended Oct. 10 2005
By Ken - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I thought I'd write an opposing viewpoint, because - with the greatest respect to Mr. Edmundson - I don't agree with the previous review at all.

Firstly, I'm a complete toy addict; I make a point of visiting fetish shops whenever I'm in a new city, and have seen the best that Paris, New York, Boston, Montreal and Toronto have to offer, and I can honestly say that with the exception of *giant* furniture (like cages and thrones), there just isn't that much out there that this book doesn't cover... from the small but highly useful items (cuffs, blindfolds, collars) right up to a bench and St. Andrew's Cross that are both collapsible/portable and probably the cleverest designs I've seen.

Secondly, I did some page counting: pages 205-238 are devoted to instructions for making some rather nice floggers, and 145-161 to making the Turk's Head knots that go on the end of the more expensive ones, but pages 239-248, 257-280, and 287-396 contain plans on making the bench, the cross, suspension cuffs, manacles, a sling, a vacuum bed, harnesses, canes, gags, cbt toys, and a myriad of other things. Given that the book is 398 pages total, according to my abacus that's 8.2% floggers, 4% Turk's Heads, and 35.4% other projects; and the first third of the book covers all the techniques you might possibly need to build everything (and then some). I've no idea what more Mr. Edmundson was looking for, and suspect that Demonia, LeatherMan, Eros Boutique, Il Bolero, and NorthBound Leather wouldn't know either, but perhaps he just wants help remodelling his kitchen. :-)

Personally, I thought the book was fantastic. As mentioned above, it's encyclopedic, and coming from a toy conoisseur like me, that's saying something. About the only criticism I can think of is that there's SO much stuff in there that, despite a reasonably clear layout, it feels a bit overwhelming. If you have any interest in bondage toys, though, and (like me) covet BDSM gear beyond what your wallet can keep up with, you should definitely try this book.

Clear and Concise Oct. 22 2006
By J. Hancock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am always looking for plans and "how to" information when it comes to BDSM equipment and technique this is one of the most thurough books I have seen out there. For the price, there is certainly a lot of information crammed into 398 pages.

One individual commented on the lack of constuction technique; and all I can say here is, this is a just a concise book of "How to" not a guide on wood working or leather craft. There are books and videos on the market that delv into those areas and I sincerely do not think the intent of the book is to teach the finer points of construction but rather a simplistic guide to building what you need. There are so many trade skills involved in building BDSM equipment that you simply can not cram all of that knowledge into one book.

I am very inpressed with what is presented and how it is layed out in the this book.

Best book yet. Aug. 8 2006
By Fox - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've poured through many books similar to this one but none come even close to the information provided inside. The instructions are easy to follow and very thorough. The designs are smart and the pictures quite good. If you want to make your own equipment you just can't go wrong with this book.

Excellent Manual July 24 2005
By Joe Blow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Even if you ignore the subject matter, this is an excellent how-to book on crafts and construction. Leather-working, carpentry, upholstery, and even rope tying are explained in loving detail that even the most technically inept could easily grasp.

After mastering the basics, the book has a large selection of projects, big and small, that are sure to be the envy of all of your friends.

The most important attribute of this book is its readability. The author's writing style is down to earth and often quite humourous. You'll want to read it cover to cover. Definitely recommended.

Good for beginner Jan. 22 2008
By J. Nicholas Herndon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After receiving this book i was excited, but not for long. Of the 398 marked paged (i.e. the ones with numbers) it seemed half the book was dedicated to woodworking, leather working, and rope techniques as well as some standard BDSM safety and practice standards you'll find on any BDSM information website. That being wordily said, This book is wonderful for someone who has NEVER picked up a hammer or screwdriver in they're life. It explains fundamentals of laying out designs, and the above mentioned techniques, however half of the plans and projects look like junk, though in the authors defense he did design the majority of the furniture to be easily portable. If I did it over with the knowledge of the books quality yes I'd get it again, for the reason of it does teach how to properly lay out plans and the majority of the leather craft projects look decent. so three stars from me though I'm not a beginner so half the book was wasted on needless information for me. Now to draw up some NICE looking bondage furniture.
