Need a repair? Just call your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man...actor, that is.

After all, Tom Holland just revealed he is quite the carpenter.

"Carpentry is something I just really enjoy," he told UNILAD while describing his skills for its "Get A Job!" series. "I love it. I've made my mom's kitchen table. I made my mom's office. I've built all the cupboards in my bedroom. I built a little birdhouse for my grandad."

And Tom even put his carpentry skills to good use for Zendaya near the beginning of their romance.   

"I fixed my girlfriend's door once really early on in our relationship," he continued. "I was hanging out at her house and her door was broken. I was like, 'I'm gonna fix that door for you.' And now, we're in love."

Indeed they are. While Tom and Zendaya—who star alongside each other as Peter Parker and MJ in the Spider-Man movies—have kept much of their relationship private, fans have gotten a few peeks into their romance over the years, including their date nights, vacations and the occasional social media shout-out.

In fact, Tom recently got candid about keeping their romance low-key.

"Our relationship is something that we are incredibly protective of and we want to keep as sacred as possible," he recently told The Hollywood Reporter. "We don't think that we owe it to anyone, it's our thing, and it has nothing to do with our careers."
