Wood is relatively new to me. Before this it was remote control planes and then on to full scale planes.
I still enjoy the other two but now that I have a new house which always requires a fix here and there and the house has a garage for tools, wood has been brought to the front of the line.

Before age and arthritis got their hooks in me…hand sewing leather cases…never cared much for “tooling” leather but I did enjoy making custom handbags, briefcases, and other cases goods. Last week I sold my leather stamping and modeling tools to a guy from Cincinnati who wanted them for his grandchildren. I did keep my awls, needles etc for repairs.

Anything about woodworking, wood(anything) but I also work on full size cars as well as scale model cars which I do complete customs and also nascar (which I custom make my own decals) I enjoy this but right now I`m hooked on wooden rings. I hope to make some Rings close to Frank at Stout woodrings. once you start making these you`ll be hooked and will never go back in the house. Hope the garage is comfy :)

Nice collection Timberwerks. I love that amp. I have a Marshall JCM 25/50 Model 2554, but I’m sure you can make more sound than I can. Oh yeah, back to the topic, music (drums, guitar, etc), fishing, gardening and photography (but the photography is too much like work for me) ........ all of this as my back allows.

I’ve become something of a tool hoarder :)) It started when I was looking to buy woodworking tools at garage/estate sales. Now, I can’t pass a plane, egg beater, breast drill or brace without bringing it home with me. I also play golf when I get time.

Pretty basic stuff, reading, gardening, photography, bicycling, model railroading, spoiling the dog, old movies (prior to 1960), and believe it or not math (trig, geometry, calculus).

Thanks juniorjock. A hobby I’d like to start soon is building acoustic guitars. It’s in the 2yr plan.

H.O. Scale Model Railroading. Before I converted my woodworking hobby into a business, I had a 17 by 22 foot room in the old house that had around the wall benchwork with 300ft. of track and a big island in the middle. I have a 8-1/2 by 16ft space in the new basement that I hope to build another train room in. I still have about 50 engines and 500 freight cars in Xerox boxes.
