Instructables is a nifty site that has step-by-step instructions for making a variety of things. Recipes, a multitude of craft tutorials, even camping gear!
The instructions are free by click through method, or you can opt to pay for a pro account (I don't think I'd do this, I'm too cheap) which allows you to download them to a pdf or view all the steps at once. There are some annoying "get a pro account" pop ups but they're a minor irritation while finding some great project ideas. There's some really fun stuff on there!
