i have been around long enough to have actually built a three tube, broadcast band receiver, on a wooden breadboard, using fahnestock clips.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fahnestock_clip

However, I was too young to sample any "homebrew".

I used to sneak homebrew out of Dad's refrigerator at times... Nice thing about a Fahnestock clip was that the learning curve was very easy. I'm looking at learning to layout pcb, probably will take ten projects to get really good at it but a Fahnestock clip, yeah, "just do it" was the appropriate motto
