    I realized tonight that we have quite a melting pot of talent here. For example, I couldnt believe the quality and patience hazard_maine has for woodworking/boat building. Definitely suprised me. So I want to see what else you guys have to hide such as your profession, random hobbies, etc.

    I'll start. I work at a big rig suspension company specializing in suspensions of any on road vehicle and trailers. You have a question about suspensions, ask me. :) As for hobbies, I dont get into much into them as working on vehicles IS my hobbie. There's not a weekend that goes by that I dont have a vehicle in the garage getting fixed or modified. Im also starting to dabble into working with metal and learing to weld.

    Im a carpenter, so i usually building something at work or at home. Just built a mini ramp with my brother and have built multiple other skate park boxes, quarterpipes, hip sections.

    My hobbies are basically anything outside, golfing, discgolfing, fishing, hunting, longboarding, and GUNS, cant forget about guns. And my brother has been getting me into photography latley. Im usually always doing something. And cars and trucks are a passtime. I love working on them if its something i want to do, but if its something i have to do its usually a pain.

    I work for a Sweeden Glass Corporation and pretty much do everything there and going to school to be an Electrician at the moment. As for hobbies its everything tearing **** up with my 4 wheeler building my truck, and basically learning and doing the jack of all trades. I can do it all and I learn it if I dont know how to do it

    I am a lineman for a power company, and as for hobbies I love working on my vehicles and I would also like to learn how to weld and fabricate better. I used to have a small collection of VW toys...mainly railbuggies, but those are all gone now. I love anything to do with the outdoors.

    Seriously though...
    I've always been a woodworker & I've built everything from birdhouses to entertainment centers, furniture, etc.

    I taught myself to play guitar 20+ years ago and I've built & modded several of my own guitars. I've collected a dozen or so guitars that I rarely have time to play now.

    Not much I haven't done, electrical, plumbing, etc.

    I've been collecting knives since I was little & I'm always looking for something new or interesting.

    Of course I like designing led mods & coming up with new ideas for all the Ranger folks out there. Like everything else, I'm a self taught electrician / electronics guy.

    The past several years have been tough since my health has been declining, but I try to do what I can.

I also like studying personalities, I recently got into it in a class for work to learn individual personality for persuasion, listening, and how they react to situations.
