I've been increasingly fascinated and impressed by people who can make -- with their own hands -- virtually anything they can dream up. Recently, I've been reading Sakurama's threads on ADVRider and elsewhere (here's the one that the attached picture came from).
He just seems to be able to make damn near anything, and I think that's awesome. He talks about learning all his fab skills from people he's met (I need to meet those people!), and as someone who wants to get to the level that he's at, I'm curious how other people learned their fabrication skills.
Where did you learn how to weld/machine/etc?
