We're in America so you still have a few rights enshrined in the Constituion. You are free to build anything you want as long as its not for sale, but is solely for your own use. Under those circumstances you won't need a serial number either or permission from the man.
There is for example a relatively large cottage industry of companies that sell incompletely machined lowers for AR15s you have to get the drill press out and complete the work for it to be a gun. For people, preppers, zombie apocalypse folks that don't want a gun with a serial number the government will have any awareness of. It is outside any regulated commerce.
You can make a shotgun with a piece of pipe if you like. Also, you can download plans for a 3D printed gun. If you manufacture it yourself with yrou printer for your own use, the government is not involved. '

Same as in every other state, it's governed by Federal Law

No laws, go ahead and make one. I do it all the time.
I live in Piney Flats, just around the corner from you.

Federal ATF regulations cover this.
Very few states regulate this - California is trying to limit/eliminate this.

The only law is that you cannot transfer it to anyone.
