    made of vs made out of vs made from

    Is there a rule of thumb to choose the right option in there sentences:
    Bread is made from flour, water, and yeast.
    Cheese is made from milk and salt.
    Or
    This dinner table is made of oak.
    This furniture is made of chipboard.
    Or
    They made a path out of concrete.
    He made his car out of spare parts.

    I think this question is answered in the FAQ section. Please read the answers there, and if you are not satisfied with the answers you see then ask for an additional explanation.

    What do you think now that you have read the FAQs?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: made of vs made out of vs made from

    My search in FAQ failed. I searched for the whole phrase ‘‘made of’ vs ‘made out of’ vs ‘made from’’, I searched for ‘made of’, ‘made out of’, ‘made from’ but did not get any sensible response.
    Please help me how to correctly do that search.
