diy, dude.

Last year, while looking for “how to’s” to make an idea reality, I stumbled upon one of the most inspiring, interesting and helpful websites our world-wide-web has to offer.

What is this wonder-land of fun?

instructables.com, of course!

Their tag line is “the world’s biggest show and tell”, and most truly is!  It has everything from how to brew a good cup of coffee to how to obtain a yacht for free to how to build an amplifier out of an altoid box.  And!  If one can’t seem to find just the right answer to a complex problem they may post a question in the “answers” section.  Super Cool! 

here are some of my favorite questions answered:

http://www.instructables.com/answers/How_do_I_find_out_if_a_limited_range_amfm_radio_/

(all questions are go, apparently!)

 

http://www.instructables.com/answers/Im_not_good_at_drawing_How_can_I_improve/

(proof of how supportive this community is!)

 

http://www.instructables.com/answers/I_ran_over_one_of_my_solar_yard_lights_The_solar_/

 (reusable!)

 

As for some of my favorite instructables…

(the instructable that started it all for me!)

 

If you are extra handy, don’t miss out on all of the great contests they have!  I encourage all friends of mine, especially those that share their name with a particular vegetable, to participate in said contests!
