'Tis the season to be making something! That's right, it's time to break out the tools and make something awesome. To get you going, we teamed up with Craftsman for the Craftsman Tools Contest!

To enter you just need to build something cool, document it, and publish a new Instructable, video or slideshow to share your awesome project with the rest of the world! It can be any project at all from a little wooden toy to a renovation. It's up to you!

That's it. To recap: make something, document it with an Instructable, slideshow, or video. Now get going and make something great! We can't wait to see what it is.
