This is a brief recap of the Instructables Build Night and Show and Tell held on Friday July 20th, 2007.
We roughly followed our own How to Host an Instructables Show and Tell but added a Build night component.
Before the main Show and Tell event, people were encouraged to share a skill, help others make a short project, or show off something cool. In this Instructable, I am pushing the limit of the medium, and documenting what happened.
