    Default Skills, hobbies and WIP

    Thought it would be fun and interesting to show off some of our skills, hobbies or interests. It might be something you do often, would love to do more or get back into.

    Dont settle for just one project. Keep adding more as you do them. If you want to share a WIP (Work In Progress) go for it

    For me one passion is woodwork including woodturning. This is a little something I did about a year ago



    And a slightly different angle

    This is a cool idea for a thread, I already stalk the sewing thread but I'd love to see what else people do!
    I like building stuff, though don't get much opportunity to do so. I made this busy board for DS - all by myself which I'm quite proud of! (well, DH helped carry the wood home from Bunnings )

    @Albert01

    uploadfromtaptalk1458263458205.jpg

    And with some shaping it started to look like something

    uploadfromtaptalk1458263500075.jpg

    Then some wheels but as ot was a prototype its a little rough

    uploadfromtaptalk1458263535859.jpg

    Some decoration by the oldest

    uploadfromtaptalk1458263563487.jpg

    And its looking more like Lightning McQueen

    uploadfromtaptalk1458263598189.jpg
