I agree with making your own stuff, but if soldering is still a problem (see cross post), and you haven't got a proper temp controlled soldering station, you should not start with the small pads of an LCD.

Are we talking about the .1" pads on a regular 2x16 or 4x20 LCD with holes through them?  They're HUGE!  Plus, once you shove headers in there and flux the pads, they are solder magnets.  Probably one of the best starter targets for soldering out there.  Then try a 0.4mm QFP-144.  :smiley-mr-green:

I will never ask you to do anything that I wouldn't do myself.


I started soldering about 55 years ago. And worked as a consumer electronics tech.
And I do production runs with .65mm pitch SMD chips, so I should know a bit about soldering by now.

Just saying that for a beginner it's wise to start with pre-tinning wires and soldering some resistors and LEDs before moving on to a circuit board.
