It's hard to put together a list of outstanding projects from the year since their have been so many great Instructables submitted to the Workshop category. From projects that help us live better to projects that help us build better, 2011 was a productive year in the workshop and we're just taking a moment to appreciate everyone's hard work. Congratulations to the authors below and everyone who published something they made over the last year. I look forward to 2012 and can't wait to see what innovations it will bring. Build on!
