we need to see and read about what your hobbies are. Do not be bashful about sharing your interests or photo's of any particular things you have made or do.

I have learned a lot from what others have posted here in the past but lately it sure has been slow. Soooooooo, help us out here and strut your stuff.:D

#1 Church- But the only hobbies "I" have revolves around the outdoors (fishing, hunting, camping). But the thing I enjoy the most is coaching football for my son and soccer/basketball for my youngest daughter. I guess it's sounds boring, but it fills my time fairly well, and I enjoy it. So, I'll sit back and live other hobbies through my friends at Woody's Campfire!:fine:

I'm looking forward to the results of this thread, it may spark me to do something else.....:biggrin2:

Want to see my fire place I built?

Y'all know what started out as being a hobby for me when I was a young 'un is now the way that Smokey and I make our living--free-lance writing. However, I, also, collect picture post-cards, coins, in addition to black lab, German Shepherd, owls, and lion/lioness memorabilia. I can show photos, maybe?

My hobbies include fishing, boating, racing, shooting competively rifles/pistols/shotguns. Making turkey calls out of turtle shells. I cant forget about tinkering around with hotrods.

07-31-2006, 08:33 AM
Now then, we have room for some pic's.

From your responses I see pic's of hickory bark baskets, football team photo's, perhaps an article from Sue to share and/or a pic of some of her collections, a fireplace, and turtle shell turkey calls just to name a few. Everyone likes looking at pictures:), so let's see your stuff.

While you are at it, tell us how long you have been doing whatever it is you do and how you got started doing it. What inspired you to collect, write, make or perform the hobbies you are involved in?

Well, I worked all weekend on a couple of rods. Finished up the Loomis GLX for a customer (nice rod, but it should be for $350). Then, started a fiberglass crankbait rod. Don't have an order, just building it. I can always use another rod myself, but probably someone will buy it when it is finished.
I would like to have the time to get into some of the real fancy things on rods. Things like weaving. You can weave all sorts of pictures on a rod. This can take up to 100 hours to do a complicated one, though, and economically this doesn't make much sense. But, it would be fun.

Beautiful pieces Nick! Did you tan the leather for the garmits?

07-31-2006, 01:34 PM
I'll try and post some pictures of my wood carvings and
hicking sticks.

07-31-2006, 01:47 PM
For those yet to post, rather than post your hoobies and pic's in this thread, start one for yourself. It will make easier for folks to see your works or efforts, especially if they want to refer to them sometime in the future.

Thanks, and keep 'em coming.:clap:
