    Welcome! Hope to see you out in the forests at some of our get-togethers. Check the "Outings" forum and also the HF Calendar.

    For making gear, go to the DIY (Do It Yourself) forum.

    Then ask all the questions you want. You'll find lots of help here.

    A few new people today. Hello and Welcome from Canada! I used a lot of the templates from DIY Gear Supply.com.

    Welcome aboard from Lakeland. Pretty much a DIYer except for the things MADD made me buy! Getting to the point that keeping up with all the new DIY projects is hard but loving every minute of it. Be looking for you on a hang.

    Welcome from Gainesville!

    If you're looking to DIY textile-based items, I highly recommend both Ramblinrev's We Don't Sew...We Make Gear! video how-to series and his advice on how to choose a sewing machine (called a "thread injector" by most here).

    Otherwise, spend a few days reading through the stickies on the DIY forum.

    For a first project, Thru-Hiker's instructional on how to make a stuff sack is pretty easy and a good place to start.

    Hope it helps!

    Welcome from Pensacola. Haven't gotten into the DIY thing yet but can tell you with absolute certainty that you came to the right place. The folks on HF are awesome with an unlimited wealth of knowledge. Just ask a specific question and you'll be amazed at how much you garner in minutes.

    Welcome from southeast Tennessee! Tons of DIY info here. I've spent the last 3 days reading DIY threads. Each time I decide on a project I see another interesting thread and my whole plan goes out the window! Good Luck!
