My wife and make a lot of stuff at home--from home made pasta, to scented fuel for an alcohol lamp, to guitar pedals--and we generally find that making at home is better and more fun than buying at the store. Can you recommend any other worthwhile home projects? I'm looking for enjoyable projects that are better than store bought--not necessarily for cost-saving.
We already home cook almost everything we eat. We make pasta, pickles, bread, bagels, pizza, ice cream. We have home made limoncello and Swedish snaps. We dehydrate fruit. We have made cheese.
Around the home, we use home made vinegar sprays for general cleaning, and bleach sprays for disinfecting. We prepare scented fuel for a Lampe Bergere
alcohol lamp. I build guitar pedals. I'm going to make some high-quality guitar cables, and plan on building a couple of headphone amps.
My wife is not interested in knitting or making clothes generally. I don't drink a lot of beer, though I'd welcome other alcohol infusions. This is a medium sized rental apartment with no room for big projects or projects requiring a lot of tools (e.g., table saws).
Is there anything I'm overlooking that would be worthwhile to make at home? Again, the goal is to have something fun to do that is better (either because of the care we'd put into it, or the quality of materials) than store bought. This is not particularly about saving time or money.
