    -Fishing is my favorite (order of preference, offshore, bay, freshwater)
    -tinkering with everything - I love to take apart bikes, fishing reels, knives, etc and clean, oil, sharpen, you get the picture
    -Boats, kyaks, canoes - got my first yak at 11 and caught a bass from it three days later
    -surfing and skimboarding
    -taking up leatherwork
    -learning machining at work and could see lathing and milling becoming a hobby

    In the past couple of years I've gone through more hobbies than McDonalds went through non-biodegradable packaging in the 80's. ;D

    I've since gone back and/or kept up with the core hobbies that I've always enjoyed.

    photography (and various activities where I'm a spectator)
    guns/shooting
    knives
    gadgets
    hiking/camping
    disc golf

    ...and I'm sure I'm forgetting some, but that's a good start.

    You should check out instructables for a DIY CNC machine. They have a couple over there, I think it may cost about $600 in material and use either a dremel or a router, and a PC.
