Hobbies

Lacking a bit of motivation right now and I'm curious what hobbies everyone has? I work on cars and bikes with an emphasis on lowriders and customs, and I've recently jumped in to trying my hand at some leather work. I've attached a picture of the first piece I tried to tool. Needs a lot of work, but it's fun, looking forward to trying my next one with some different techniques to get more detail. Anyways, anyone else care to share?

Looks awesome charlesskelter...

I have many hobbies myself, I game a lot with friends on the PC and my partner and myself are right into doing home DIY renovations at the moment.

When nothing needs to be done around the house you will find me on the local golf course or at the gym. And last but not least im getting my new street 500 in a couple of weeks so that will definitely be a hobby in the near future.

Oh yeah I love model trains as well, (Got the bug from my granddad) but I guess im leaving that hobby for retirement when I have more time to get into the finer details of model railways.

I love DIY renovations, but being a renter I don't get to do much of them. Wish I had a garage to set up. Maybe one day.

I did another piece trying out a different technique a few days ago. Just picked up another old Mazda pickup to get ready for daily driver status before winter sets in.

The text above is my opinion. Feel free to ignore it. I do.

I am a musician. Used to do it for a living.
I also have made and sold "Muppet" style puppets.
Canoeing
Shooting guns
Chess
Astronomy
Too many hobbies to count
BUT... I got into a little bit of leather work myself, as well as metal too. It was for movie props. Here is a replica of Freddy Krueger's glove from A Nightmare On Elm Street I build from raw materials (except the glove, just aged and tattered it)

That is bad ass! I'm a horror movie nut, I've wanted to make one forever but I don't really have any metal working tools or any place to put them. I've got a friend making a Pennywise costume for my Dalmatian ,since that is who she is named after, for Halloween this year.
