different kinds of hobbies :D
« on: January 22, 2017, 08:52:54 am »
I'm curious what kind of hobbies people on here have :D

i recently started a new hobby, i discovered the "Metal Earth" collection, for those who do not know them, you get a metal sheet with parts which are laser cut, you take those out and build different things from them, as of now i only have 7 of them (the Eiffel tower, the black pearl, the titanic, the Apollo lunar module are a few of them) and i plan on increasing this far more :D i recently had a look on the website of the company who makes them and there are some great models like the Hogwards express and the soon to be available Freight Train.
Just a smile or a kind word can open the gates to heaven.

Hobbies are interesting things most us of find challenging and fun to do.

I have always found electronics and computers interesting. I got into
amateur Radio over 50 years ago. Untill my vision problems I enjoyed
astronomy and built a telescope. Not counting learning to play musical
instruments.

It's always good to keep oneself busy, I rarely ever have time with
nothing to do even if it's only to read a book.

I collect antique and strange Christmas items.
I do folk art Christmas things. I'd call it crafts. But crafts in America means if you can get it done in five minute or less.
Stated to watercolor paint.
Play guitar. Still learning how to sing and play at the same time.
I don't watch TV. Once football season is over with my tv is all but useless. : )
It's been said that rats can gain access to your home by climbing up threw your toilet. I prefer to use the front door.

Leather working, once upon a time I made a couple bows and I'm hoping to get back to that this year, bushcraft skills, soundtrack scoring, electronic props for cosplay (although so far it's just the one project that's proving vexing) and hopefully this year more drawing/writing.

I play games on my PC, and I do robotics.
I listen to music, and that's about it.

Leather working
blacksmithing
canoe building
gardening
dog training
sci-fi writing
camping
backpacking
human pony/horse work/competitions (not related to MLP)
building everything from furniture to buildings

Also enjoy drawing too, but it would be better called "drafting" (thought anyone who does drafting would probably cringe at what I scribble on paper).

Everything else people would likely consider work. I enjoy auto maintenance, home repair, and handy-man type stuff.

My most favorite hobby, however, is to learn a new useful skill.

Cars mostly, I'm into sleeper cars. Just for the fact that it surprises people what you can do to an economy car. To the point where it's blowing away cars people spent $400,000 on. Boba Motoring is a prime example https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Fuj7x4Px6zQ

Love collecting rifles, long range shooting, hunting, anything outdoors really.

I have a lot of camping equipment. I'd do more camping if my local chapter civic group lived up to the public service announcement: "...hike, camp, get in shape,..."
