A couple of you got really excited by my How to Make A Cell Phone Stand from a Business Card post yesterday and I realized it was high time I formally introduced you all to Instructables. It's a fantastic site that offers user submitted instructions for Do It Yourself projects, crafts and handy tips.
For example, have you ever seen Hummingbirds buzzing outside your window and wished you had a way of capturing them? User makescreenname has submitted a great guide to making a "hummingbird shooter, that will allow you to get great digital shots of the birds.
If you're not into birds, Instructables has some great tips like How to use the Macro Mode on your camera (Macro Mode is what makes YumSugar's photos of food and baked goods look so delicious!) or if you're feeling more geeky, How to make Homemade Infrared Goggles for less than $10.
