Instructables--your online show & tell

Today's wonderful web wednesday features a website for all the DIYers out there. Instructables, which calls itself "The World's Biggest Show & Tell," is a site where people who are passionate about everything from art to kids to pets to technology can "share what they do and how they do it."

For example, on today's homepage you can learn how to build a 72-volt electric motorcycle, build a whiskey still, or create handbags using Ikea fabrics. Besides great how-to's Instructables offers links to a variety of contests such as T-shirt Hacks and the Green Science Fair for a Better Planet, (all with prizes), a community blog, and groups for people with related interests (hydroponics, anyone?).

If you've been missing the ol' kindergarten show-and-tell days and are dying to share your knowledge of recycling plastic bags into yarn, then Instructables is the site for you! Now every day can be show and tell...and it's about time! --Emily
