I like reading and studying theology and teaching (I will hopefully be headed to seminary in the fall).

I once dabbled in guitar, but I don't play as much any more.

I really like making things, which has led me to refurbing/refinishing estate pipes, and sewing (the hat in my avatar is a product of this hobby).

Thomas you do well.. And the hat looks great.. Next year if I may ask you to be able to find the time to make an older man one of your hats.. brown if possible.. 7 3/4 inches around this old skull.. I will pay you your trouble.. I like it.. Cheers.
Chuck.

That's a nice lookin bass, and a nice Dublin, too!

Chuck, I don't know if making a hat for you would work out. I made that first one without a pattern and it took me more than a dozen hours to figure out. I started another one, maybe with practice I'll get better and faster so you don't have to pay too much for an inferior hat just to make up for my time;)! I've made the first two from tweed blazers I got for nothing at the thrift store, but I have found sources for decent tweeds online, as well.

What I am getting better at (and thinking about selling online) are bow ties! Here's one I made in a subtle glenplaid:


Another I made from a thrift store shirt:


Oh, I play rugby, too!Twisted Evil (I'm in the middle, sprinting)

Thanks guys. Once I'm a little more satisfied with my pipe making skills I plan on trying to sell a few.
Thomas, great bow ties! Let me know when your ready to sell them. I'd be interested.

Be careful about watering, over watering can be as bad as underwatering. If you live with others, make sure you're the only one taking care of it. I live with my parents and my mom started watering my first tree, but so was I.... and it died. I have a water measurment tool that is stuck in the soil and it says how much water is present. Very helpful. Also use clean, pure water as much as possible. Tap water has a lot of stuff in it that can bind to the roots and make it hard for nutrients to get to them.

Tom T, very handsome bowties! I like the diamond-point design. Add me to the list if you do go live with selling them--I wear a bowtie to work every day.

No problem Thomas.. I was thinking down the road.. And I could mail you a pair of old blue jeans to make it out of.. But just let me know when you feel inspired.. Something done with care and meaning will beat the so called perfect craft job any day... cheers cheers cheers

i am a lot of things.

father & grandfather.

hobbies are bowhunting, flytying, flyfishing, fishing, and any other excuse to be outdoors when the weather suits me.

dabbled some with target archery and a sure-loc scope setup. i shoot a back tension release. also hunt with the same scott longhorn stainless steel 3 finger. shot a couple field rounds locally, but there are not a whole lot of ranges available for that sort of thing.



bull creek craw pattern adapted/borrowed from the texas region.

picture of archery scope set up (i made the sunshade)



field target beat up. think i was shooting that day at 35-50 yards



like using old antique tools on deer hides.



like eating the things i shoot (venison kabobs in the summer)



the wife helps butcher. shoo! cat!



about ready for spring and its not even officially winter yet.



antler lamp i made with sheds.



guy who stuck around for 2 weekends too long



me in my favorite spot

Music is my first maiden, if I had to choose pipes or music, I would pick music for sure. But thank God I can have them both!

I play percussive instruments and sing/guitar in a band I play in here in charleston. I have also been playing the trumpet for about 6-7 years. I started the mandolin about two years ago (easy instrument, if any of you are looking into it!) and have been taking cello lessons for the past month or so.

Besides that I enjoy cooking without recipes. I just open up the pantry and see what I can make with whatever I have! It's thrilling, and when you get something that tastes good it's a great feeling.

I play trumpet for a LIVING and its still my hobby.... Laughing Laughing Laughing

Camoham, have you checked into the Indiana Field Archery Association? They have organized indoor and outdoor shoots. I would think that Indiana would have nearly as many clubs and field shoots as us in IL. There are at least 7 outdoor ranges within an hour of me. I haven't shot in years though.

I enjoy riding and working on my Harley and also enjoy hunting and shooting with classical archery equipment. Also enjoy collecting vintage tobacciana items.
