How do we define what is do-able?
That which we do must be a deed.
Did you do the deed?
A "deed" is something which can be done properly or something which can be completed.
(Special placeholder cases are "something" and "nothing", where "thing" stands in for the deed.)
Thus, we cannot 'do' an error or 'do' a mistake because there is no proper way to do something improperly. We cannot act improperly properly. Did you complete the error? is a nonsensical question.
In contrast to do, which refers to engaging in an act that yields a deed, to make something is to bring it into being, to cause it. There is no requirement that it be done properly or completely.
We can make a mess and make an error and make a mistake. All that is required of the thing that is made is that it be something we can bring into existence, something we can cause. The thing that is made can be something that can be made properly. But it doesn't have to be.
This explanation may in fact be a proper mess.
