How to make things
Project walkthroughs and instructions for things I’ve made. You can also find me on Instructables, and I post photo walkthroughs on Flickr and video walkthroughs on Vimeo. I always like to hear feedback on how these guides could be improved – please tweet or email me, or leave a comment on one of the guides.

I’m experimenting with documenting projects in video format. Starting with some hacks for recording video.
HowDo is a simple app for recording micro guides. I’m experimenting with it to get small projects out of my head and onto the web.
