Hobbies and Projects!

#1
Being on the forums for a while I know that it is filled with many intelligent and interesting people, so I started wondering what this group of people are working on. I can only imagine what hobbies and personal projects we all have going on behind the scenes. To kick this off I suppose I should put up a project or two.

Lately I've been working on what was just a stress test for my old 3d printer to ensure that I have fixed the problems, this test became a project of its own. After a combined print time of 17 hours my mini Ark of the Covanent was glued together and just today painted gold! The next step is to rig up some of my super bright LEDs to shine when the lid is opened. Image More in 3d printing I just recieved a sample pack of filaments from ColorFabb, it consists of a woodfill filament, glow in the dark PLA, XT clear food safe filament, and bronzefill that has bronze particles in it. With the bronzefill I have been working on printing a ring from Thiniverse (based on Halo) and so far I've been working on calibrating my printer for the best results and polishing the rings to get a decent shine. In the picture you don't see all the shine, It's actually pretty nice so far. Image These are some of the things I'm working on, how about you guys? :D
The only limit is the one you set.

Not possessing your talent, Sky, but heartily endorsing your subject matter I actually purchased my Ark of the Covenant from Sideshow Collectibles but I don't get the same feelings of joy I would if I had created it myself. Well done, sir :!: :clap:

What never fails to stagger me is how creative some of the LT members are and how they manage to find the time to pursue their creative urges. Especially when there are so many other distractions nowadays, not the least being the playing of video games. I am aware that many have full time occupations and family commitments which further eat into their precious leisure hours.

You are amazing ladies and gentlemen. :thumbup: :D

hah maybe i should pick up a new hobby when i have more time. Currently all my hobbys are pc gaming, reading, swordfighting etc.

But somehow i feel the urge to make something visual.

(realy cool stuff btw.)
More people want exploding kittens than exploding ships. Somehow, this makes me happy.

That looks great Skyfligher!

I'll post some pictures of my pralines and other chocolate-y creations when I have the necessary equipment to actually make stuff in my own kitchen. :D

I demand samples! :D
I'll send you some when I'm confident my creations can survive the trip. :D

I really love this little ark... In fact, what size is it?
I'm waiting to see the final montage !

Ok, let's take the train of hobbies. I'm really into cooking, so here are some ... experiment :).
Macarons, canelé bordelais, and just a funny cake raté I reconverted into a communist emblem!
