Fabricating & Measuring Capacitors

Hi, Just being new to the TC Scene, I've been reading everything I can get 
my hands on about TCs.  Unfortunately, I have not been able to find any 
information about making capacitors, and how to determine the capacitance...

Any information on how to construct a Flat plate capacitor would be very 
appreciated.  I'm hoping to build a TC for a Technology Project... Extra 
Credit!!! =)

Thanks in Advance,
Jason From
