I am a 24 year old male who has recently just left university with an engineering degree and entered the big bad world. I already take part in sports so im not looking to do anymore and don’t wanna end up in the pub every night! I am looking something very hands on and creative ideally i would love to restore a car or build a kit car but i cant afford it! i am willing to spend a bit of money on a hobby but i dont fancy arts and craft type things like pottery or painting.
work is tedious and i need something to keep my mind and hands active. hope this info will help you find me something looking forward to your suggestions!
few things to me are more satisfying than seeing a formerlly uselless chunk of steel become through your hands and manipulation a thing of beauty and utility
