Instructables: With regular contests for contributors, instructables has everything from baby slings to wind turbines, to LED lighting, to gardening constructs, all in a searchable database.
Readymade: A fun DIY magazine that has now gone electronic, with an archive of all past projects with difficulty and time ratings. They have a few kits and plans for sale, we'll be working on our 10 X 10 recycled garden house soon!
Make: Another magazine with DIY projects that has a presence on instructables as well as plenty of creativity, plans, and some kits.
Hit the dump, curbside, freecycle, craigslist, friends' garages, or wherever you can find some material to recycle into some fun and useful projects!
