    I like to wood work on my days off if I'm not on my boat. My job is high risk low reward and ungrateful. So to kill the stress I build furniture, today I'm finishing up some bunk beds for my kids. Any of you folks have stress killers or any other cool hobbies?

    I like to tinker with my car. I also have a full woodworking shop. I'm in a working band. And, contrary to my muscle car persona, I have a model railroad in the basement. And yes, I have a day job as well...

    I really need to focus.

    I'm an ore recovery specialist. I operate a carbon plant that handles the extraction of gold.

    Pretty much just benchwork this winter. Some of the models I've built...

    Kinda nerdy, but it's great in the winter. Basement stays temperate when the garage is cold. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Train sets are cool I got my kids one last year for Christmas, I played with it more then they did. lol I want a 1:24or 1:32 slot car track but due to space I'll probably end up with drag strip.

    I have many interests I enjoy wood work, tinkering with cars, detailing cars, cooking, would love to get back into models but they became too expensive.
