Make (or MAKE) is an American bimonthly magazine published by Maker Media which focuses on do it yourself (DIY) and/or DIWO (Do It With Others) projects involving computers, electronics, robotics, metalworking, woodworking and other disciplines. The magazine is marketed to people who enjoy making things and features complex projects which can often be completed with cheap materials, including household items. Make magazine is considered "a central organ of the maker movement."

Its first issue was released in January 2005, and as of March 2014, 38 issues have been published. The magazine is subtitled "technology on your time." It is also available as an IPad version and a Texterity digital edition on the Web, which is free of charge to existing magazine subscribers. The HTML-based digital edition allows for searching and includes additional content such as videos, with freely accessible blogs, podcasts and forums also available in the website. The digital edition also allows limited sharing of articles with friends.

The magazine has features and rotating columns, but the emphasis is on step-by-step projects. Each issue also features a Toolbox section with reviews of books and tools. Most volumes have a theme to which the articles in the special section are usually related. Notable previous columnists include Cory Doctorow, Lee D. Zlotoff, Mr. Jalopy, and Bruce Sterling. The cartoonist Roy Doty has also contributed to many issues of the magazine.

The Skill Builder section is a frequent feature teaching skills in areas as diverse as welding, electronics, and moldmaking.
