Default Hobbies

I'm always curious as to what people like to do for hobbies. As get busier and busier between the day job (DBA) and building out my new production space for my business, my hobbies easily go by the wayside.

When I do have time, these days I have two primary hobbies; woodworking and golf. Lately it has been just golf (my game needs work) on off-days, but about four years ago I started woodworking, as I became fascinated with amateur lutherie.

I had been poking about on a guitar forum looking for a wiring diagram or somesuch, and stumbled across threads dedicated to guitar and bass builds, so I decided to give it a try, and hope to not lose any hands or fingers in the process.

Over the next few months I acquired some various tools that I thought could get me to the finish line and away I went.

I have three other bass guitar builds on the bench, but they are on hold until my space is built out. I recently learned SketchUp and have designed my bar and small walk-in cooler. And after that, I have some mash paddle (brewing) prototypes to make for a friend in CA. THEN, perhaps I can get back to the guitar making.

What be you do?

This is a great project, thanks for sharing!

Myself, i tend to be in and out of the warhammer hobby. Every other thursday there is a free hobby class at warhammer world and i tend to go with the little one to complete that fortnight's tutorial.

We put together some flamers of Tzeentch recently. We're just waiting for a change in weather so we can prime them. He loves painting fire; should i be worried?

For myself i an working on embellishing an ork stompa the wife bought me as a birthday present last year.

I rarely get to game, but i may have a battle lined up next week if i am lucky! Stompa is a notoriously bad option, but i have won my only other game played with it so far. Lets see if i can make this a winning streak.

I do obstacle course racing, trail racing, or novelty races for fun. (Mud runs, zombie runs, costume stuff, naked runs or bike events.) Outside that I just exercise a lot. A lot of venues im repeating now and looking for a new challenge since I don't fail any obstacles anymore. I usually just do them wearing funny getups. I need to find a tough challenge. I do a little bit of close up magic, and other party tricks. I like learning goofy skills.

Yes! This is what I expect to see from EQ people. It shouldn't be shocking at this point, but it is always a pleasant surprise. The most creative people I have ever known have been D&D, EQ, Warhammer, musician, anime and cosplay people (usually two or more of the aforementioned hobbies or professions).

Speaking of goofy skills; anyone else pick locks? I'm only speaking of your own locks, of course. I can just do Master locks and other easy ones, and sometimes more complicated ones, but how fun is this shit? Also, it turns you into a critic when anyone tries to pick a lock in a movie.
