Rip a board, sandblast a rusty tool, etch a circuit board, 3D-print a missing piece or build a robot lawnmower. Wood and metal working, silver and black smithing, welding, molding, casting, soldering, electronics, robotics, rocketry, remote control, pinewood derby, painting or just fixing a broken doohickey. You can learn to do it all yourself.
