Instructables: Share What You Make

Instructables is a great resource for the creative “Do It Yourself(ers) out there. Filled with incredible and inventive ideas, recipes, fixes, hacks, you name it it’s probably there in some form.  Instructables is built by readers contributing instructions of their own sometimes weird and wonderful projects. From a design handy person perspective I really love the functional repurpose aspect of the solutions. Here’s just a few.

A design savvy Ikea hack with awesome look a like instructions to boot.



Bar bones and a clever re-purpose of PVC pipe into a Papaya picker.


Or a home made “Electric lawn mower” that I wouldn’t recommend you try.
