As in, craft, like machining, woodworking, paint, etc.

For me, an electric ukulele. I don't know why, but I think that would be awesome.

I have one with a 15 foot beam and 10 feet tall at the top of the A-arm. It uses 500 pounds of counterweight.

I'd love to completely craft a dug out canoe with hand tools.

Hmmm... counterfeiting's difficult, you know. Oh well, therein lies the challenge, right?

+2 for the Trebuchet. I have also always wanted my own blacksmith shop and to be able to make knives and swords the old fashioned way.

Submachinegun that uses Sten mags.

The hard part is the rifling, everything else is pretty doable without much effort. Rifling is very difficult though, and if you ask someone to do that for you there's only one thing you're doing.

I want to make historically accurate, both in appearance and function, fittings for my Chinese sword blade.

For all you aspiring swordsmiths out there I will say that smiths who have a good reputation in the sword collecting communities can't keep up with the demand for custom swords.

Waiting lists of YEARS are not uncommon.

The downside is that people have made the statement that it takes a LONG time to get really good at the craft.

What do you think of Paul Chen's work?
I've admired his shops swords for a while.
Any other smiths you would recommend for a quality reproduction of Chinese blades?
