Default Piping/drumming spin off hobbies

How about this, what other hobbies have you (forum folks)have you acquired as a result of your piping or drumming. For me, I've collected regimental cap badges for some time and have a fair collection. Also, for whatever reason, I got interested in small pins and badges from the Orange Order from Northern Ireland, just because they looked interesting I guess.

A few years ago I started collecting pipe-band-drummer postcards from the early 20th century,....and lead (pb) drummers from the UK.

That's not a hobby, jessierose. It's a virtue. Playing in pipe bands introduced me to better beers than I'd experienced as a "civilian". My interest in better beers resulted in my journey into homebrewing. Love it.
Beers,
Ken

Reedmaking, Uilleann style. Well, not yet, but I'm just getting started on learning. I'm sure that I'll make some really crappy reeds, but it'll keep me out of trouble.

I feel the pull of the lathe. It's only a matter of time before I try making pipes, I'm afraid.

I have made a successful PC reed, and a cane drone reed. I repaired a tongue on my synthetic reed.

I have gotten into sewing a bit: I made alterations to my bag cover so it would fit better, and I made drone ribbons for the band for St. Patrick's day.
