Mostly got the CNC as an extension of other hobbies, so it's supposed to facilitate my woodworking, and enable me to make metal hardware for woodworking projects. The woodworking is mostly about still other hobbies such as archery, so ideally I'm supposed to be making an improvement on:


Although the current project is storage for Magic: The Gathering cards:

Where to start?
Wood turning
Kayak fishing
Restoring my 1963 Austin Healey 3000
About to fire up my S3 for first time

Waiting in the wings a 3d printer.

At 74yo maybe time to concentrate on these and not start any more?

Too many hobbies - that's what I have...
  • Woodworking - I use my S3 for this, but also have a basement full of woodworking machines. Table saw, joiner, planer, band saw, drill press...
  • Model Railroading - just starting this one back up. I model in HO scale. There will probably be some S3 work at some point.
  • Motorcycles - I have too many motorcycles (5) including one with a sidecar. Which leads to my next hobby:
  • Motorcycle and Car repair - I like to repair and maintain my motorcycles and cars myself.
  • Shooting pistols and rifles, including a couple of black powder revolvers - I just shoot for fun, no hunting. Which leads to my next hobby:
  • Reloading ammunition - doesn't really save money on ammo, but I do shoot a lot more.
  • Computers - I'm an IT guy by trade and have a server rack in my basement (this forum and the wiki run there.)
  • 3D printing - I have a 3D printer to go with my S3. Will probably see some work with the model railroading.
  • Laser cutting - I have a Glowforge laser cutter. I'm sure I'll start using this for model railroading and might even be able to sell some laser cut structure kits if I get around to it.
  • Reading - I love to read, mostly SF and Fantasy. I also enjoy the occasional biography of famous people (truly famous, not celebrities.)
Like I said. Too many hobbies. I like collecting skills.

Wow, that changes every couple of year. In general, though:
  • Motorcycles - mostly on-road, though Pittsburgh roads are arguably off-road
  • Electronics
  • Woodworking
When time permits, I get into a variety of other varieties. Lately, though, I travel 50+% of the time, which means that my hobbies are collecting point in various hotel/airline systems.
