Strengths would be gunsmithing, metalworking milling/turning/EDMing, and CAD/CAM engineering.

I also can do carpentry, outdoor plumbing, auto mechanics, ammo reloading, and a small list of other things that I normally don't do anymore.

I've done remodeling for the last 5 years or so, finish carpentry since I was a teenager, and have made furniture since before that.  I currently do most of my work in the American Federal Period, but do other styles as time and needs permit.   I do most, if not all, of the critical work by hand and do the rough milling and processing of boards with machines.

Computer networking technician by trade but i hate it

A+ cert Cisco CCNP, Security analyst and intrusion specialist (fancy name for legal hacker), Data network tech dealing with hardware aspect, C++ and a few other certs but i hate my cushy job tbh. in my area no one will hire me because id want to much money (over qualified) so I've decided to go back for my hobby a computer geek by day welder and sprint car enthusiast by night.

going back for my welding cert I've been welding since about 10-11 i think something like that only type of welding i cant do is tig welding and that's just because I've never had anyone teach me or have a tig welder, ill weld anything i can typically touch. instructor is gonna have me help teach the programming side of robotic welding, i sat in 1 class and could understand the program that little robot used to do everything, but i wonder if i could program it to make coffee.... class project.
