This month’s issue of Popular Mechanics has a section entitled “How to make anything.” While it didn’t contain directions for making money, there were a number of interesting projects, some for the home handyperson. (I’m hip.)
Here’s their page showing “How to Make a Porch Swing” (if I only had a porch). Quite complete and detailed.
Other included projects are for: a raised flower bed, a spindle sander, a telescope, root beer, a jigsaw puzzle, a bait barrel, a straight line, a guitar, and more. Worth a look.
