Instructables Project Contest Winner

Before and After (by Brian Sawyer)I just learned that my DIY Bookbinding tutorial–originally published in Make magazine, then gaining a little more attention in expanded form as a wiki (which nobody actually contributed to before I decided to consolidate it here with my blog), and finally made available as an Instructable–was just selected as one of the winners of the Instructables September Project Contest.

Considering I wasn’t even aware of such a contest when I posted the project to the site, this came as surprisingly splendid news indeed, and I’m honored to have my project selected as one of the five First Prize winners. Thanks to the folks at Instructables for creating such a great community for people to share their how-to ingenuity with others. Now that I know people are watching there, I’ll have to get on the stick and post some more projects there.
