Put all new outlets and switches in my house, new ceiling fan and light fixtures, the girlfriend has painted 80% of the house. Just dropped a ton of cash on a new mower which I’ve been wanting to do for awhile. Bought a new pressure washer need to start on that.
I’ve been working on some sculptures, but I’ve actually been working on them for upwards of 6 months intermittently. But when I make that Instagram post I can convince people that this pandemic gave me a spark of creativity and I busted them out in several days.
I’m lucky enough to still be going to work full time, but every day I question whether or not it is responsible for me to still be going to work. But I can’t work from home and I have plenty of stuff to do and getting a paycheck is pretty great
Built a sweet camper platform for my gf's CRV. It folds up on hinges into the back for easy storage First time really using any powertools since middle school shop class and even though it was a pretty simple project it was so fun and rewarding and has me interested in building more stuff in the future. Did that just before quarantine szn but it inspired me to get more into building things so now I'm making a smart mirror for my Mom's bday.
This is basically the end goal, but my frame will be smaller. Pretty simple as far as the wood work goes but I also have to mount a monitor, 2 way mirror, and raspberry pi inside the frame. It's also forcing me to work a bit on my Python skills which is something I've been slacking on. The display is totally customizable and can show time, weather, inspiring quotes, your commute time to work, pretty much anything you want, and can be integrated with Alexa/google home which is cool too
StuuuuuuuuuuI was building a cedar strip canoe over the spring/summer. Didn’t get it finished before I moved out to uni but I’m home for a couple weeks over the holidays and I getting back into working on it.
Fuck yeah dude! I know how time consuming that project can be. What are you doing for seats or are you going without them? If you can learn to cane that pattern looks real good on a wood canoe. Looks friggin mint man, well done!

Fuck I miss wood projects.
Thats what I'm working on right now. I'm using some dark teak for the decks and seat frames which I think should make a cool contrast with the ash gunnels. I want to try caned seats but depending on time I might just go with webbing to get it in the water and save the caning for a later project.
This has been my first real woodworking project and it's super fun. I had done lots of construction type stuff screwing together 2x4s but it's a whole different thing working with nice wood using chisels and planes and stuff.
Currently rebuilding a 97 E36 M3, its been pretty exciting so far. Bought it from this kid that got it from copart, starting ripping it apart and dumped a bunch of money into it, then decided he had no idea what he was doing and i bought the lump of trash that he had created. Got the frame straightened out, replaced the starter, reconnected the intake system, fit fenders and hood, among plenty of other things. Now it runs, but the kid butchered the clutch install, so I think im going to have to drop the trans to get that fixed because it won't go into gear. Cars are fun, especially BMW's
