Mine's woodworking. I didn't see it in your list. Right now I'm trying to collect a lot of machinery to do what I'm interested in at the moment, which is making marble runs & machines. Harder than it looks.
I am a woodworker as well. I also brew my own beer and occasionally fly power kites.

I was a picker before picking was cool but its not for resale! Im very particular about what I pick and generally, what I collect is super discounted, free or nearly free and almost always building materials. Ive got a 3500 Sq ft 190 year old home Ive been rebuilding going on ten years. Its a very expensive venture even if you DIY, especially if your buying all new and full price items to do it with. Ive renovated nearly 75% of the home with some of the most beautiful Old Growth Hardwoods and much of the framing is twice used.

All my reno's have re-purposed materials, 100% of them have some or much! Sometimes I sit on the product for years before its used but it always gets used and nobody looking at the finished product would be the wiser unless I told them! One of my larger projects, the kitchen was a byproduct of our University Library renovation. They smashed tons of 50 year old white oak built in shelving units and I took home 3 PU truckloads of broken cabinet grade lumber. 4 years later, I remilled it all and built from scratch one of the most beautiful custom kitchens I could have imagined. Its obviously not new oak, its got some character but its got flake and tiger waves you will never find in new quick growth oak and its as hard as rock maple! The cabinets are 100% oak backs, sides, shelves and drawers and fit in my old home like a glove.

That same library provided some of the most beautiful treads for my New addition/ staircase from the rare book collection shelves!

I also do a little wood working and home remodeling. This is a pic of my kitchen. I made the cabinets myself and laid the tile floor. I will be doing countertops soon.
