Duct Tape Roses Add a Lot to a Home - The Best of Instructables in New York Times Answered
Duct Tape Roses, Concrete Lightbulb Wall Hook, and the Drainage Luge were all mentioned as part of Penelope Green's review of The Best of Instructables.
Duct Tape Roses Add a Lot to a Home
The duct tape roses I made over Thanksgiving were fetching (until they were gummed by the cat), but post-turkey lethargy prevented me from digging into the meatiest projects in "The Best of Instructables" (Make: Books; $34.99). One example: the concrete light bulb wall hook, described as "an excellent excuse for driving a lag bolt into your wall" by its inventor, Ray Alderman. He and it are emblematic of the instructables universe, a blogging community of do-it-yourself-ers, robot-makers, food hackers and techno-geeks who share their crafty ways at Make magazine and Instructables (makezine.com and instructables.com), sometimes selling the finished products on etsy.com, the online bazaar for handmade things.
