Thread Name: BS: Your hobby
Subject: RE: BS: Your hobby
I dunno if woodworking is exactly a hobby anymore, since I augment my retirement income with it. (especially lathe turning).....but I also study and collect wood specimens and belong to the IWCS. Since is is estimated that only about 1/3 of maybe 100,000 plants big enough to supply a 3"x6" specimen have been identified, I guess it is a 'hobby' to chase new varieties. Maybe it is a hobby when you can think of Thespesia populnea easier than ...ummm....oh yeah, Portia Tree.

The other hobby is beer....I have somewhere over 800 beer bottles & cans I have ...ahem....'accumulated' for the past 30 years. The basic rule is, to get spot on the shelf, it has to be emptied by ME.
