Just a light hearted thread about hobbies you wanted to try and why you haven't tried it already! I'll start with wood carving. I see all these newbie carving projects and want to try it. Ok not the spoons, sick of spoons if I'm honest. I see really good carvers doing simple looking pieces of work that I really should be able to attempt, but I don't. Why? Carving needs wood and I never like nicking wood from somewhere when I'm out and about. It's not my wood. Not the reason. Cuts aren't neither. Tools? A knife and axe I suppose are all that's really needed, perhaps a folding, pruning saw. Well I've got knives. Can borrow an axe and saw. Space? No garage or shed. Back yard perhaps in summer or dining room if careful. What's stopping me I don't have a clue. So is there something you really wanted to try but have a mental hill to actually start doing?
