The Sims 4 Wiki

Do It Yourself![]

Handy Sims aren't afraid to use their hands to repair things when they break. They can even upgrade household objects. This talent for objects extends to woodworking, allowing them to create small and large objects on the woodworking table.

If your Sim reaches level 10 in the Handiness skill, you unlock the achievement Beyond Repairs.
