When it comes to DIY projects, some re­sults are stur­dier than oth­ers. One of the strong­est ma­te­ri­als you can work with is con­crete, which isn’t just meant for side­walks. In her new book, Mak­ing Con­crete Pots, Bowls, & Plat­ters: 35 stylish and sim­ple projects for the home and gar­den, Hester van Overbeek teaches how to use con­crete in beau­ti­ful and func­tional pieces—ev­ery­thing from planters and mugs to coast­ers and vases. Here’s a bread bas­ket project, to give you a taste of what you can do with this fun ma­te­rial.
