Yeah, not everything I do is all that great - Just the stuff I show on here!
And besides.... I keep telling everyone how bad a MIG welder I am. I'm saved by my angle grinder and thank Thomas Joseph (he invented it) every time I have to use it. I suspect, since TIG is more like torch welding (which I'm really good at) I could TIG well, but never tried it.
I used to be able to paint well (not great) but I no longer have the patience to learn all about the modern water-based paints and how to properly apply them. I'm much better at fabrication in just about any material, so I leave it at that and rattle-can the finished product. Anything that's big (like Pearl) I have professionally done.
There are a bunch of people on here who do as good, and often much better, work than I do - look at Mango Smoothie's or Ollie's work - and we all get inspiration from each other. That's what this is all about. People (like you, Bill) keep upping the bar.
I'm proud to say that a lot of that OCDed-ness has rubbed off on my kids who seem to be tackling interesting projects of their own. It just boils down to seeing a need for something and deciding "I'm gonna try to make or do that". The first few tries might be less than optimal, but you get better and more confident with each one. After a while, you'll just tackle anything........
We've seen quite a few people develop their skills on here, and that's one of the best parts of this site!
