    The oldest boy does wood working as a hobby, so does my Dad. Tables, cutting boards, benches, chairs but no turning. I've been interested in wood turning for several years but I've never made the decision to get started. Well, over the weekend I decided it's time to take the leap.

    Same as any other hobby: time, money, space.:roflmaro:

    I had all but decided on a new M&P to build into a game gun (even though I don't compete) for my combined birthday/Christmas present but it kept nagging at me in the back of my mind that I don't have time enough to shoot what I have already so why not learn something new?

    Ok I’m slower than usual tonight.:roflmaro:

    I heard from a panda familiar with the stand of bamboo that wood came from and he says it has a knothole but nobody could ever shoot anything in there...

    another interesting project. I was on a motorcycle trip with a bunch of friends this summer and saw this at a Dodge Ram dealer (I think we were in Idaho at the time). It is made of barbed wire.

    Barbed wire ram? That would really snag my attention.
