I make cute storage baskets too...
Good Job, Care4all! I crochet popcorn stitches in hexagonal shape for small areas in the bathroom and enlongated in front of the kitchen sink. Yours are especially pretty and you designed them, too! I know exactly how fabulous and creative that is. You are acquainted with putting a boatload of time into something nobody else has and works like nothing else. Kudos!
Cute city! I'll have to try that sometime after I finish my charity quilt phase, which has gone on for about 35 years now, and I can't seem to stop.
Build rather cool model airplanes...Been working with some lacquers that mimic polished aluminum surfaces and it has been deriving me nuts.
Wood and stained glass scuptures, usually installation art that I sell to galleries, private collectors and occasionally businesses.
And recently, jewelry. Because I think its pretty and it ships much easier than an installation piece.
The art installations are distinctive and I enjoy anonimoty. But the jewelry is newer and I sell it under completely different branding. Here's a recent pendant necklace prototype.
Videos and websites. And things like that.
I don't have a creative bone in my body. Still, I make a lot of things rather than buy them: detergents, disinfectants, infusions, tinctures, toothpaste, mascara, lotion, lip balm, flea treatment. Some things aren't worth making, or I haven't gotten it right yet (so I gave up, my time is full now), like dishwasher gel, bar soap and foundation (makeup).
Recumbent bikes, trailers, anything made of steel.
Since I retired as a machinist I've bought a welder,sandblast cabinet and all the other things ya need to fabricat things out of steel.
I bought the welder to rebuild our bridge that crossed the creek so we could drive the truck to the river to load our yaks and bring down firewood and of course beer.
That was a six day project as the bridge was sixty foot long.
Used eight in. wide C purlins in 8 gauge steel,there were over 4000 welds....above my head. Sucked like a mofo!!!
While welding from the bottom is bad enough the worst part is the shit falling in your shirt and generally burning the crap out of ya!
It's handy as hell to be able to make shit that wont friggin break!!!
