January 3, 2009: Making Stuff
At Maker Faire last year, we saw many widgets, gadgets, and trinkets of incredible coolness -- an attraction magnified by the fact that each was homemade. If you're keen to start constructing similar projects of your own, Instructables.com is the answer.
With guides to geeky projects from science fair fodder to homemade plastic, this site has instructions for an extremely broad range of "stuff." Personally, I'm going to be looking very carefully at the solar and wind power experiments, but if you construct your own CNC (computer numerical control) machine, send us pictures!
