i love the challenge and satisfaction of DIY. I am also a student and so my means are limited - and I can sort of multitask while doing DIY - I can half watch a movie at the same time.
In terms of the cost savings - for me it is huge, even if I spend a bit of time on making the gear. I have made 4 hammocks, 3 TQs, 2TQs and a tarp all for the cost of what 1 set of professionally made TQ/UQ would cost me. Which means I can take friends/gf out to hang with me and have a variety of rated TQ/UQ combinations...
