The internet is a dandy place for HOW TO guides. Guides that tell you how to make or repair
things have been published in books and magazines forever, and they are a
staple of weekday television programming. But the internet is probably a
better medium for these guides. "How to" books are limited by the high
cost of printing color and photographs. Auto repair books are
notorious for having one or no photos of complex operations. "How-to" television shows are great for
fostering ideas, but difficult to actually work from. Just copying the
ingredients in a recipe from a television show is a challenge.
Below are the HOW TO guides I've written for Cockeyed.com. I've tried to include an absurdly high number of
reference photos. I hope you enjoy them!
