I really enjoy taking pictures, but I also enjoy working with wood.I haven't done anything major for a while but when I found some old oak boards in the school shop and was told they were there for the taking I decided to make a small blanket chest for my wife.I was also able to use the schools tools which certainly made things easier! We will use as a coffee table and who knows we may even keep some blankets in it! I've done projects before but this is the first time I chronicled the process. I didn't take a lot of shots because the dust is not to good for my DL! Below are two,the original boards and the finished product. If you would like to see more, http://picasaweb.google.com/glenn2shelia/ChestProject





So then, what are some of the hobbies, other than photography,y'all are involved in?And lets see some pix!

Thanks Dennis and Gumnut. It is finished with a wood oil I bought here in Germany made from vegatable oils and bees wax.

Wonderful! Amazing how a rough board can become so beautiful. At this point my other hobbies are traveling (and taking pictures) and hiking (and taking pictures).

I used to have other hobbies, until Pentax came into my life.

Nice job on the chest. At one time I did a lot of woodworking, but I was never very good at it.

wow - that's some nice woodworking!

As for the hobbies - that is a "work in progress" to say so. Some years ago I danced (standard, latin) together with my wife, with the birth of my daughter I searched for another hobby and tried some music (guitar) and painting (pencil, crayon, watercolor mainly). I like to play RPG games (pen and paper "old style" preferred butI also tried a computer based onlinegame and found some friends through it which I still think is very astonishing - but it worked). I am active in two other Germany-based communities (one about and for intellectual gifted people/children and another one also in the field of parenting/childs). If all this can't keep me busy I write my own stories and poems, listen to music (and I mean listen, not just turning the radio on) and do other "normal" stuff like reading, meeting friends, working on house and garden, travelling and so on. I am still undecided on some sports - I know that I need to do something but haven't really started seriously.

Oh - and I take photos and postprocess them, but that doesn't count for your question :G.

Model Railroading for me (mostly in the colder months). I've not made much progress on my layout this past Winter; therfore, I'm posting one from before. It complements my interest in photography since I not only enjoy train spotting and photography, but also trying to photograph my layout so it looks like the real thing.
