Im a computer engineering student living in a small apartment and im looking for some kind of DIY hobby to pick up. What are some cheap "fields" that don't involve computers/electronics?
I would love to build some small vehicles with wood but idk
>to truly answer your question I'd recommend dirt bikes
Yeah, riding dirt bikes is fun as hell. I actually used to own a dirt bike while i lived at my parents house but sold it when i started studying.
I'll definitely buy a bike eventually. This man know what's up>>940311

I bought a damaged A4, have been working on it and it's incredible amounts of fun. If you don't want to leave your apartment, there's not much I can suggest that doesn't involve electronics.
the toys board may be more help with this.
any place with the exception* of /fit/ will help with this.
google may be more help with this
Bob ross may be more help with this
>get gf, play bed/board games
Leaving 4chan and going outside may be more help with this. Alternatively, check out other boards and see if any of their interests pull you in.
Are you looking for something to entretain yourself? What is something you've always wanted to build/learn/fool around with?
Us giving you recommendations here will go the way of spent money of something that will be abandoned quickly. Try hand carving wood.
Woodworking in a small apartment is the absolute worst, sawdust gets everywhere. Try it, see if that's your thing.
*they do have a decent sticky.
I want to stay away from computers mainly because I already spend so much time programming, i like it but i need a change.
Currently 90% of my life as an engineering student is software development and partying.
guitar or some other instrument?
parkour or physical exercise of some kind.
all my electronics and computer work isn't good for me. can't be good for you either.
BMX is for cockgobblers. Real cyclists just put shit together. Lycra is for sissy ass gaymen. What you need to do is build your bike to be a cheap piece of shit, and then go and gather more frames from the trash, fix them up, make money fixing bikes. Don't listen to anti-biking fatasses.
Knitting is cool but it's really just a time sink. Even if you're flying along and using the most basic stitches, it still takes forever. And I find that it uses enough of my attention that I can't really do something else meanwhile. You can watch TV or something, but that's about it. If you had a knitting machine and could just program it, that'd be pretty cool, but that's what OP wants to avoid.

OP here: I started building a wooden differential gear yesterday. Enjoying it so far but glue and wood is a pain in the ass to work with.
