The Instructables book has a nice little write up in the NYTimes! Penelope Green writes-
The duct tape roses I made over Thanksgiving were fetching (until they were gummed by the cat), but post-turkey lethargy prevented me from digging into the meatiest projects in â€œThe Best of Instructablesâ€ (Make: Books; $34.99). One example: the concrete light bulb wall hook, described as â€œan excellent excuse for driving a lag bolt into your wallâ€ by its inventor, Ray Alderman. He and it are emblematic of the instructables universe, a blogging community of do-it-yourself-ers, robot-makers, food hackers and techno-geeks who share their crafty ways at Make magazine and Instructables (makezine.com and instructables.com), sometimes selling the finished products on etsy.com, the online bazaar for handmade things.
