    Soon to be a DIY noob

    Well here I go. Im going to the dark side. I've been poking around and found a lady at my church that's gonna give me a sewing machine. That's right folks the ol' shmub is gonna try his hand at some DIY. My first project is gonna be a bug net based on fronkey's design. Maybe one day Bubba shmubba will go down in the annuls of history with such names as Dutch, shug, papa smurf, and the fore mentioned fronky. A guy can dream can't he!

    Careful, the DIY will suck you in and suddenly all that time you use to spend outside is spent hunched over your workbench. Of course the bright side is that you will always have plenty of gear that likely won't see the woods. I have no idea how many soda can stoves I have piled up in my garage.

    I just joined the dark side as well, and now I understand when people warn of its addictiveness. Just wait until your sketching plans at work and talking about thread tension in your sleep
