    Your project looks great, but your instructable needs work.

    First off, "" is not a website. I think you spelled DIY wrong, and also meant .org.

    More importantly though, all you have is some (well drawn, btw) drawings of the base, but nothing on how to actually build it or make it work. I was especially hoping to learn on how the page turner works, but there is absolutely nothing on that at all.

    I mean, I hate to be critical, but please try to look at your instructable from the perspective of an average reader. We all like what you've done, (we really do!) but we know nothing about it. You need to show us how to do it.
