Instructables is a fabulous site for home improvement projects as well as a variety of other projects. I have been truly delighted by the projects which I have found on this blog. Not too long ago I was looking for a nice easy bedroom lamp – they had directions for a Japanese style box light that was fantastic. The directions were clear, easy to understand and simple to follow. The materials were things you might have around the house on a regular basis. All in all this was a highly successful project.
The selection of home and garden projects is large with most being well written and easily achieved. There are instructions for all kinds of home improvement projects: need a fire pit? A better garage door opener? Want an easy clean up for leaves? How about in ground lighting for the garden?
Instructables has one more exciting thing – a blog with some behind the scenes look at the projects selected for the site. Billed as "The World's Biggest Show And Tell" you learn – you build – you invent and if you want – you share. (Link)
