For those of you eager to boast about your maker prowess, but haven’t yet tried Make: Projects, I encourage you to take a look at this video to introduce you to what the site is all about and how it works. Make: Projects is a constantly growing cookbook for makers, so even if you’re only looking for inspiration for your next project, there’s a trove of ideas there. Some of my favorites include the wildly popular Doorstop Stash and the Mini Fume Extractor. Don’t let your creations just sit in your workshop or basement, share them with your fellow makers on Make: Projects!
