That's true, I would go stir crazy being away from my normal stuff to do.

Forgot about them. Took them out of my suburban 6 months ago and stashed them in my garage. Don't think there is room behind the back seat in my 97 crew cab, it has 08 leather superduty interior in it.

Re: Hobby Projects


Too many and they all get pricey. Started lightly tinkeri g with leather craft and will eventually make my own tool belt. Made a leather suspender extentions for my overalls that worked out great and now i dont have a wedgey all day. Lol
My biggest hobby/obbession is fishing, specifically for smallmouth bass on Pennsylvania rivers. So started making my own rods and jigs for my specific applications. Cutting and glueing up cork rings for handles and turning on my lathe, and tying hair jigs for winter fishing.

Edit, pics came out upside down. Not sure why

I attempted to plasti dip some red accents on my wheels....I messed it up when I pulled the tape though so I pulled it all off.

I was just dipping them to make sure I liked the look before committing to paint. Would have been nice if it lasted for a few months though cause it did look good.

Re: Hobby Projects


I used my hobby of building stuff to make this Wheel Of Fortune wheel for the residents of the care home my girlfriend works at. They are apparently all enjoying their new hobby of spinning the wheel. I used lazy Susan hardware and it spins and sounds awesome.

I Plastidipped some wheels about 2 years ago and they're holding up fine.

The whole wheel and accent are 2 different things. It was hot and drying to fast. I pulled over half the edges loose with the tape
