Back at the farm I used to do some amateur blacksmithing. I was never very good but I was still learning. I had a stick welder for awhile and got into playing with that but they sold it or traded it or something so I never had the chance to get any good with it. I always loved fixing engines and making weird electronic stuff from old junk I'd find. I really liked making furniture out of old wood like pallets and wood spools. It's something I really miss. Anyway anyone here do anything like that?

Basket weaving.


Did it once out of plastic grocery bags. There is a certain meditative quality to it's mindlessness, but it's not for me.

I built a computer memory from scratch using regular copper wires, wood cuts, and binary switches, if that counts as "Crafts".

I'm not sure if you're kidding or not.

Not kidding. It's pretty antiquated though. Something you might see from the 1930s-1940s.

Good topic.
I enjoy designing jewelry as a hobby or craft. I draw and doodle, then mockup rings, necklaces, and belly button charms.
I buy my own diamonds and opals.
I give my art and mockups to my trustworthy jeweler of 20+ years. In a few weeks/month he makes and finishes my vision.
My wife only owns and wears jewelry I've had made for her. Nothing is store bought or window shopped. All my pieces are one-of-a-kind like her, and she loves it that way.

Do any sand casting? I hear regular sand is Ok but a good blend is invaluable.

Also I need A crappy uncut rock.

Crafts are for girls ........ or guys raised by girls.
Unless you include building a log cabin with an axe as a craft.0\

Does casting my own bullets count as a craft?
