A lot of hobbyists are into more than one thing.  Aside from forging, what else do you do?  Show some pics.

I do tiedye... and fishing.

Or, if not smithies per se, were you otherwise trained in the metallurgic arts before straitened circumstances forced you into a life of aimless wanderin'?

A tie died catfish.  [rofl]

I used to hot rod and fish.  Now all my spare time goes into knifemaking.  I need to be out there right now.  lol.  I'd like to be able to get back to making more forged art but right now it aint happening. 

Nice cat by the way, hope he fried up good.  [thumb]

I do. . . a lot of different stuff.

Outside of metalworking (knifemaking, blacksmithing, welding, etc.), I also draw and write, as well as fish and hunt occassionally.

I actually do very little forging right now. I've been making stuff on the CNC router and trying to do some metal casting and working with the lathe. Learning some CAD so I can design some patterns. 
I've got the boat out and hope to get on the lake soon. I love big cats, I cannot lie. Just haven't been able to find them the last couple years.

Brilliant question. I have too many things I like to do. Gardening, work on the house construction, street rods, model trains, junking and restoration of just about anything old. Being out doors.
How much for a tye dye and wood plaque?

I never sell them.  When someone asks me to sell them one, I say, "Give me a white tshirt that fits you, 100% cotton, and I'll make you one for free."  Selling them would be too much like work.

Those are some nice plaques though, aren't they.  Nice cat too.

I usually catch and release.  Those giant Blue Cat taste kind of nasty.  I'm planning to eat a Shovelhead, if I can catch one around 10 pounds.  Anything bigger, and the fat gets into their meat and ruins the taste.  Besides, something that big, I figure, has earned the right to keep going.

So... if someone wants a tiedye, PM me and I'll send my address.

Yes, I just like catching them, very rarely keep any to eat. Just feel a little uneasy when they say not to eat catfish from the Tennessee river more than once a month. ?? OK, I won't eat any. I also cast lead sinkers, all different types and sizes.

Oh, if you want a plaque, let me know. Are you a Country Girl? [smile] The snake is on some 4" X 4" scrap wood. I can do about any size up to 9" by 14".
