Wooden boat building. I love to work with my hands, wood is pleasant to work with, and wooden yachts are a beauty to behold.

That being said, I realize the above has 0% of being a commercial success. The market is flooded with affordable plastic-fantastics churned out in factories in nearby lower income countries.

Also, I suppose it's one thing to enjoy working with my hands when I do it for my own enjoyment in my spare time vs. doing it for real work on a deadline.
