Instructables Contests Big and Small

Instrucatbles has a new contest. We’ve blogged several of the wallet-building Instructables, made from keyboard membranes and FedEx tyvek. Now they’ve issued the Wallet DIY Challenge. Post a wallet Instructable in the next five days and possibly win an Instructables T-shirt or Eye-fi Eye-Film that wirelessly uploads images from your camera directly to the Web.

But that’s peanuts compared to the Laser Cutter contest. Post an Instructable, on anything, and add it to the contest’s Group. Five semifinalists will be chosen. You then need to submit a proposal for what you’d do with a US$6,000 BrightStar Laser Cutter. Winner bags the machine.
