I don't really build stuff since I've got everything I need at the moment, but I'm very handy at fixing stuff, coming up with make-shift solutions, or putting things together. I live in a house w/ other college students and most of the other girls have no clue about things like putting in storm windows, replacing a furnace filter, fixing a blown fuse, replacing window screens, etc. The most recent thing I've built was a stand for a 55 gallon fish tank. My dad helped because I'm not familiar with his tools, but I basically told him exactly what supplies we needed and how to put it together each step of the way. If we had done it his way, it would've collapsed under the weight of the water. I'm the only girl I know that got power tools for Valentine's Day!

A few years back I made some bookshelves for my medieval re-enactment group when I was in charge of research resources for my administrative district. My dad helped me with the cutting, I did the cementing and the sanding with an electric sander.

Pretty awesome. I was going to paint it, but never did. Tank stands cost over $100 (for crappy wood and veneer, more like $300 for real maple, oak, or whatever) but the one I made, even with two three-drawer pieces I bought, was around $40.

I've built several computers, a desk, a bookshelf, and I do a lot of fixing of random things. Since I go to a tech school, everyone likes to build and if I don't have a tool I need it is very easy to find someone that does.
