I enjoy working with wood and most other materials and have totally renovated my house. That includes a new roof from wood base to shingles, soffits, all hardware and trim in the house. Converted a downstairs room into a office with built in shelving and credenza.
I have changed most of the faucets etc. in the house and installed the dishwasher. I clean my own furnace and have also worked on the duct system. Everything from plumbing to electical to you name it. I maintain all of my own tools, lawnmower, snowblower etc.
Pretty well anything my wife comes up with, I can do. I say this in all humility.
My todo list is still longer than my life expectancy but when I get something done, it is done correctly.
I leave the painting to my wife.
