Over the last few years I've got interested in making guitars. Not really high quality things, but guitars made out of junk, or bits found at car boot sales or on eBay.
It's really a lot of fun, and I would encourage you to have a go. You can learn a lot about a lot of things by making your own guitars, so try it!
And you don't have to have a lot of practical skills or tools to do this. If I can do this with only an electric drill, anyone can do this.
There really is a great deal of satisfaction that you can get making stuff. As can be seen from the items posted at the Instructables site where I got a lot of my early inspiration. Check it out, and have a go. If it's not guitars you want to build, I'm sure you'll find something there you'll like!
