We have lots of folks here who are good with their hands. Do you build stuff? What do you like to build? Whats something you have built that you are proud of? For me its a cab and head cab that my dad and i built. dove tails and all, we went all out on this one. built with premium pine. its a 2x12 cab, oversized, it sounds fantastic.

I will readily admit I can't build anything. I have neither the patience or the talent. I built a bar in my basement about 10 years ago, but I had so much help that I can barely take credit for it. I didn't do the plumbing, electrical, or tile. I did most of the framing and some of the plywood work (that thankfully my cousin who does tile was able to straighten out the top cause of my poor framing that made it like a skateboard half pipe) :rofl:

I'm no builder or carpenter and I can prove it. But the following was a necessary jury-riggin project that worked. "Jury Riggin'" is a lot like sewing up a bull's ass with a logging chain; it don't look so good but it'll hold.

I grow a few plants now and then. Several years back I had a fair investment in my garden and went to some lengths to protect the plants from the elements. Rather than cover the individual plants against the harmful affects of a hard rain, I decided to cover the entire grow. I built the super-structure off the tops of the 10' t-posts, leveling as I went. The final product was covered with netting, then greenhouse film.

I’ll admit, I’m not much for being the creative type, I just lack the patience needed to tend to all the details.

Not necessarily proud of, but examples of the gunmakers art that turned out pretty good.

A 03 30-06 sporterized with a Mannlicher stock. Free floating barrel and custom hand checkering. This was a very popular conversion of one of many models that could be sporterized from older military rifles. Watch out for conversation of some 03s with brittle recievers. It's the numbers that count.

The custom Ivory grips for my personal Colt .45 Single Action. These were produced from Walrus Ivory obtained from Alaska.

A custom .257 Roberts built for a client.

One of the reasons I love to see good woodwork here.

I consider myself more of a fixer than a builder, but as far as being proud of something, I built this from the crankshaft out. Every single thing that could be taken apart and made better...was. The list of mods is longer than your arm, and it was considered fast for a '69 Bonneville. Long gone...it ended up in Belgium after I sold it during a bankruptcy in '93.
