|What could this be?|
This is something that could be called a hobby in it's own right, but is used to help elevate the primary hobby. Sometimes these hobbies are a direct result of needing something for your little army men. Does this sound familiar?
For example, I needed a storage/transportation solution for my paints and figs for game/paint nights at the local game shop. Thus began my journey to the inner hobby of really rough, mediocre, yet still functional woodworking.
My latest undertaking has been to find a way to store my paints in an effective way, while keeping them hidden since we are trying to sell our house. Hopefully in my next place i won't need to hide my paints, but for now we have to do what it takes right?
Here is the sequence I took to create something acceptable to me and my better half.
|Cut equal lengths for the frame and nail together|
|Use a dremel to make slots for my aluminum bar|
|Insert bar shelves and attach back piece|
|Attach ring terminals to the ends of some galvanized wire|
|Screw terminals to the sides to create a front stop for the paints|
I still have a few tricks up my sleeve to complete these shelves, but will save that for another update.
I want to hear from you!What are your "secret" hobbies? What talents/skills have you put to use with wargaming that you did not think would be connected?
