Got a hobby or sport that you love?
post it up, maybe we have something in common...


I'll get things started,
one of the things I like to do with my kids is riding our Sea-Doos out on the lakes. We love getting out on the water, always gives me a chance to reflect on God and His many blessings. It's good clean fun too; these crazy things are a blast; 215 horsepower supercharged engines, 0-60 in about 5 or 6 seconds, they top out at nearly 70 mph... here are a couple of shots of my son having some fun in the sun...

Brother Parrish, in the 1970s-early 1980s I was quite an avid semi professional drag racer, I ran Dodges and Plymouths in Outlaw class. I've built plastic models since I was four years old, my interest in the last 20 years has settled into armored vehicles/artillery pieces. The hobby shop I do most business with has for years sold me items that were returned for missing parts. I buy the kit at a fraction of retail and make the part that's missing. I competed locally at several hobby shops. I repaired my mothers dolls in her collection and later found this useful in repairing human heads when I worked as a mortician.

My main hobby of the last 5 or 6 years in duplicating Plains Indians artifacts. I made my own bow and make my own arrows. I make knives, warclubs, spears, that type thing, mostly I reproduce items they used in day to day life. I made my own set of bone needles and sew with animal sinew. Raw materials can be found at Moscow Hide and Furs and Eidenes Furs, both in Idaho. What people spend for one bottle of whiskey I can keep myself in bones and feathers and beads for six months. One you get into the groove of the American Indian's technology and craftsmanship, it can be a fascinating and satisfying hobby.

We have concealed carry for handguns in Ohio, I asked a local deputy if you got the permit, did you have to carry a gun? He said he didn't know, what did I want to carry? I told him, a tomahawk, and the look he gave me was what we used to call in high school, "precious".

I agree with you, if you have a hobby you enjoy, it's something that can become second nature to you and give you a great deal of time to focus and think.

Grace and peace brother

Tony

HA HAHAAA!!!! okay Tony that is some funny stuff brother, I know we have our doctrinal squabbles, but I have to say you strike me as a very creative person with a lot of talent. My brother got into making the indian artifacts for a while, he is an avid hunter and gets a lot of his bone, horn and feathers from his game kills. That does seem like a cool hobby and I wish I could have seen the deputy's face.

Brother, I'm sorry if I offended you, or were harsh with you. If there is anything in the forum I have said that has hurt you in any way, tell me what it is and I'll do what needs to be done or whatever you want done, to make it right. There is no excuse for offensiveness or harshness, I have a home situation that's very hard, I have no right to let that cause me to be harsh or stern with you or anyone. There are many times here, as you know yourself, we have to stern and matter of fact, as with people like Tandi, let's agree to disagree, let's examine each other's positions, but not be like Paul and Barnabas over Mark, and then move on. You say what you feel led to say to me and don't feel inhibited. I reacted several times to you wrongly, I've reacted maybe several times to others wrongly. Again, I'm sorry. You or any person on this forum were on the street with me, and someone threw something as they often do on the street, I'd put myself between what was thrown and you. I took my eyes a few times off why I felt I was in this forum and looked at me a little too much. Let's just try and make this the best Bible forum on the web.

Brother, I like to create things. God is many things to many people, to me one of the many things is He is a Craftsman. Mom and Dad both were talented at making things, I just learned. I love to reproduce Indian artifacts that were used prior to the mid 1870s when they were confined on reservations. I got tired of merely making things, I like to reproduce things. Many like to make a skinning knife, I like to make a Cheyenne, Arapaho, or Sioux skinning knife from the shoulderblade of a buffalo. I've got one shoulderblade here I been making things from for 4 years, they are about $10-$15 cleaned, around 5 if you get them from a bison farm where they are harvested for meat. It's a cheap hobby too, one that don't take much investment.

I'll read the FAQ section here and then post some pictures of my work.

Grace and peace brother

Tony

Tony, no worries... we are all human and I just feel we KJV people need to stick together, I have never felt anger at you (yes, I have felt like skinning Bro. Chette once or twice, but I repented). Do post the photos I think everyone would enjoy seeing your craftsmanship.

BroParish,

We would know what your hobbies are if you would of added it to your profile when you joined the forum.

well you never did repent of what you did to me nor did you ever say you were sorry for giving me a curse disguised as a blessing in the Kent Hovind update thread James 3:10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. but you repented of wanting to skin me. I find that hard to believe.

Can you post some pictures of your artifacts?

I'd like to see them, and know more about that.

I'd be glad to BR, soon as I figger out how to post attachments. I got 2 or 3 pictures on this computer, my camera is in the pawnshop right now, when I get it out I'll post some of my sheaths, hidescrapers, bones needles, that kind of thing. I salute bro. Parrish for starting this thread, it can be an ongoing one that won't fade out like many of the other threads. I don;t use power tools because I don;t own any, I make everything by hand. I use only natural material, no epoxy, I use hide glues and what I call "injun Epoxy": Dried deer dung, pine sap, and hide glue mixed. I use mostly deer, buffalo, elk, and other hides and rarely use cowhide. I sew with sinew: buffalo, elk, moose, and deer tendon. I have a 70 inch hickory longbow that's a bit too hard for me to pull with little grip in my hands, a company on the net I do business with now has some 2 year old Osage staves, I want to make a short horseback flatbow.

Grace and peace

Tony

Brother Tony, If you ever figure out out to post attachments, please let me know! I've been trying to figure out the same thing! It's a NO GO.

Thanks!

Tony, to post an attachment here's what I do; just upload a low resolution version of the image (like 5 or 6 inches wide at 72 DPI) onto a site called Photobucket (or any similar free photo hosting site). Once it's there they give you a tag which you can simply copy and paste on the forum, and voila—you're done. I am on a Mac as you know, but they usually give you several types of code options so maybe you can experiment and see which works for your system. Many cameras shoot large images nowadays, like 10 inches at 300 DPI, so don't forget to down-size the image before uploading that way it will be a much faster process.
