Pros:
1. Strong visuals that work well with the text
2. Very simple instructions that are easy to follow
3. Good use of the gutters

Cons:
1. The background of the pictures is very distracting at times
2. Some of the steps are repetitive and could be paired with a previous step, like steps 7 and 8
3. Use better titles for your first couple of steps with better action verbs

This project was very easy to follow and I believe that we could construct it easily with this set of instructables.
