Weekend Hobby, Craft and Bodging Thread

Greetings, all. Time once again to head to the garage, basement, shop, studio, craft room or wherever else you go to make a mess and lose yourself in something creative.

Please note this is not an open thread, so please refrain from things political. Lord knows we have lots of opportunities for that. Okay, here we go.

I've featured Samy from Germany before and once again he makes a futuristic shadowbox diorama from just basic materials like card, styrofoam and Sculpey.

Continuing in the futuristic/dystopian theme, here's an amazingly creative transformation of a cheap action figure into a cool alien miner.

Danish woodworker Jesper makes a really nice table from reclaimed pallet wood. Pallets intrigue me as a source of raw material but it is a lot of work to break down and prepare. Still, I love the wax finish and want to try that out one day.

Jimmy DiResta is the doyen of the YouTube maker movement. He's skilled in virtually any material. Here, he shows off his talents on the sewing machine and walks you through making a heavy duty tool bag.

Peter Lloyd Lee is a model railroad custom builder, and he's also damned good at translating his customers' wishes into realize-able track plans. Here, he walks you through the process.

At the risk of stepping on KT's gardening toes, here's something different to try; aquaponics. Raising fish and plants both as food as well as decorative purposes. Nice beginner's overview.

Another great restoration, this time of an antique coffee mil by TRG.

Ben Uyeda is a talented designer and makes some unique pieces from materials like steel, plywood and concrete. Here's a space saving desk from steel and wood that folds out of the way when not in use.
