I dunno why, but I was kind of hoping there would be non-CS answers for this too, like how to woodwork, or like tying flies.

There was a reference to this book earlier: https://www.amazon.com/Build-Metal-Working-Scrap-Complete/dp...

I was hoping someone would ask this. The question made me think of 'Rebuilding the Indian' by Fred Haefele. In an autobiographical work, the author gets respite from and perspective on his emotional issues by focussing on rebuilding an antique motorcycle.

I think there was a wood or metal working one above.

Seems reasonable. I was hoping to see a few more, too! Only mention of the scrap metal project so far.
