My Eclecticollection

This site is a collection of many of my interests and hobbies, many of which are in various stages of planning or completion. The Merriam Webster Dictionary definition of eclectic is “composed of elements drawn from various sources“. Throughout my life, I have found many interesting hobbies such as amateur radio, electronics, computers, stained glass, etc. Dabbling in each of these has allowed me to gain some experience with the craft by researching and doing. As such, I have a few projects that are in various stages of completion, such as a stained glass Tiffany-style lamp and a radio direction finding unit. Because I have many interests, the ability to combine some aspects of each into a project.

One problem with indoor hobbies is work and storage space limitations. I am constantly surrounded by boxes and bins of electronic parts, tools, and supplies. Most of the time, I spend time searching for items when I will run across some parts needed for another project that I could not find earlier. I solved this issue by increasing my hobby and craft storage space by building a garage with a dedicated workshop and dedicated storage space. It provides enough space for large woodworking projects, support for my other hobbies, provides a dedicated area to store my tools, and most importantly provide a place to park my cars. The cabin’s existing single car garage will be converted to create suitable workspaces for my stained glass, 3D printing, and electronics projects.

Please look around and download any items that may interest you. I hope you enjoy the materials here of interest to you.
