The Instructable takes a standard Raspberry Pi with Raspbian installed, and then walks you through the process of getting the network configured, and Tor installed. It’s relatively simple provided you’re familiar with Linux. The end result is a cheap relay and the fuzzy feeling that you’re helping others browse the web anonymously.
