Abstract: We show a method to construct orientable minimal surfaces in $\Bbb R^3$ with arbitrary topology. This procedure gives complete examples of two different kinds: surfaces whose Gauss map omits four points of the sphere and surfaces with a bounded coordinate function. We also apply these ideas to construct stable minimal surfaces with high topology which are incomplete or complete with boundary.
