Instructables: Do it yourself website

Some of you may have already found the instructables website, but for those who haven't, I thought I would point it out. Instructables is a website devoted to documenting detailed instructions on how to "do it yourself." it's a community oriented website, where all of the instructions are written by the users. The idea is that we all have things we know how to do, so why not share our expertise. To that end, once you sign up, you can create an "instructable" on nearly any topic. You just put in your own step by step instructions, and images. The instructable is then available to anyone who wants to do the project. Furthermore, the instructions are in a format that allows anyone to comment on them. So your instructions can be expanded and enhanced by the comments of other people who followed them. there are instructions on how to do almost anything on the site. Sewing, cooking, art, construction, and many more topics. Most of the instructions even have details on where you can buy the materials needed, and how much they cost. All you need to get started, is to sign up for an account. Signing up is free, so you really should.
