There are tons of various brands that try to sell their various outdoor products - it's difficult to figure out which ones are reasonably priced for high quality, just high priced, or low quality. Last year, I took the dive with Strathwood (first I had heard of them) with a beautiful Strathwood Basics All-Weather Hardwood 3-Seater Bench. It's an awesome little bench, especially for the price.

So sticking with the same brand seemed like a smart thing to do...and it was. This umbrella base is just as great as their other products. Very easy assembly: two bolts on the bottom, and then, depending on the girth of the pole you put in the base, 2 tightening screws that hold the umbrella in place firmly. And then you have a piece of outdoor yard equipment that will never need replacing. This this is a heavy base that I wouldn't hesitate to put larger umbrella in, and with the little feet on the bottom, putting in on gravel (rather than a pristine deck, for example) is no problem, either. And the powder coat finish means it's not going to start rusting after the first drizzle.

Recommended...likely complements Strathwoods own outdoor furniture (which I don't have), but it looks great with existing tables and chairs, too.

  1. This book really opened my eyes to what I can do with my crafts! A great idea book, as well. I never thought of making some of the projects highlighted in the book, but now I will! Great book!

  2. This book is a reminder that there is not an app for everything. Craft Activism is all about enduring relationships to each other, the earth, ideas, materials, community, the senses, and art. Add in gorgeous photography and you have a gem of a book!

  3. Craft Activism is a fun book...fascinating and witty--both the writing and the photography. Gale Zucker has a wonderful eye for the absurd or the funny or the inspiring, and Joan Tapper writes with empathy and clarity and in fine style. I have enjoyed this book enormously--and I'm not even a knitter. If you ARE a knitter--this has got to be a must read; if you just like to learn about original people creating unusual crafts for a cause, again it's a must.

  4. The new "Craft Activism" book by the wonderfully well written Joan Tapper and gifted photographer Gale Zucker will bring you back to childhood and back to the present with wonderfully presented projects for today's crafter. This inspiring book will give you "the bug" to bring out those tools that are stuffed in the back of your drawers and craft closets and start to create once again. Homemade and handmade have never been so appreciated as they are today. This book is a must for all your friends who yearn to be creative. Enjoy the gift of giving and the gift of creating a one of a kind masterpiece. I do.

    Check me out at [...] and "Taste the Love".

  5. If I ever think that I have nothing fun to do, I get this book off the shelf and look for a project that will be "green" and recyclable and then I dive into a new craft. This is one super book to have out on your coffee table, too. Well worth the price.
