Overview


Collected in this volume is a best-of selection from Instructables, reproduced for the first time outside of the web format, retaining all of the charm and ingenuity that make Instructables such a popular destination for internet users looking for new and fun projects designed by real people in an easy-to-digest way.

Hundreds of Instructables are included, ranging from practical projects like making a butcher block counter top or building solar panels to fun and unique ideas for realistic werewolf costumes or transportable camping hot tubs. The difficulty of the projects ranges from beginner on up, but all are guaranteed to raise a smile or a “Why didn’t I think of that?”

Numerous full-color pictures accompany each project, detailing each step of the process along the way. It’s an invitation to try a few yourself, and once you’re done, see if you don’t have a couple of ideas to share at Instructables.com.

The book, Extraordinary Projects for Ordinary People by Instructables.com and Noah Weinstein is packed with some interesting projects to work on! I really love the ideas, which some may be a bit tricky and harmful, so it's best to not have the kids alone if they want to try a few. However, it's definitely outrageous what you can make inside this book! There is one that really caught my attention. It's creating a jack-o-lantern shooting fire out of its mouth. It's a bit scary but very creative. Another would be having your hardwood floor look 3D or make a side by side bicycle. However, these are just like a few! There are tons and I mean tons inside from home to vehicles and much more! It's just not something for people who enjoy easy projects or love simple DIY, it's a bit trickier and takes a little more time to work on. No matter, it's wonderful to see what you can create with some original items and make them totally new! Excellent book, a very helpful guidance of photos and ideas found inside.
