What proves to be popular on the MAKE blog is always hard to predict. You put something up that you think will break big, and it fizzles, and then you post something you think is just kinda cool and it goes viral. Here are the top ten most popular posts for 2012. From 3D-printed bird beaks to nerdy furniture to a mural made out of cube puzzles — you certainly can’t say makers aren’t creative.

What were some of your favorite maker stories and projects of 2012? Please post them up in the comments.
