How do I learn to build... stuff? Carpentry, woodworking and construction-like activities are foreign to me (I get scared hanging pictures on a wall), and I can't seem to find anything that talks down to my pea-size brain. Can anyone recommend activities and/or reading materials that will help me become handy around the house? [MI]

Every issue of Ready Made
has cool projects that I'm scared to try. And I'm not talking about big stuff like the prefab house
... the little projects frighten me too. I want to learn how people put two pieces of wood together, and how they keep doing that until it becomes something.
