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.

The Mail is much more tabloidy, and full of stories that somehow manage to blame eastern European immigrants for most of society's ills.

It's unofficial tagline is racist in public, so you don't have to be.

That would make a great business card addition... Unless you fancied going with Ray Alderman - A excellent excuse for driving a lag bolt in to your wall...
