YouTube links to videos of good cable-building projects would be great too!

If you have good soldering skills, you can DIY interconnects. Years back I saw that Rega Couple was getting good word of mouth. And all it turned out to be is Klotz cable (often available in instrument shops) and Neutrik Profi RCA's. I built those, plus I've made some interconnect using DH Labs wire and Vampire RCA's. I've also built balanced cables using Mogami wire and Neutrik connectors. Good luck and have fun!
I’ve built my own power strip, power cords, interconnects and speaker cables. Multiple times. I’m more than happy to share info..
I will say, though, research the crap out of everything before you do it and maybe do a dry run with shitty cables and connectors. It’s not the soldering that’s hard. Making them look good and well finished is the difficult part. Working with tech flex, heat shrink tubing and the like isn’t difficult, you just need to learn how the materials behave.
And yes, erik_squires is very knowledgeable. As is willywonka.
Here’s a link to a power cable how to from willy. He also has links to his interconnect ’recipes’.
