glad to be here.

hi everyone,

i am a self-employed carpenter/handyman. been working in the trade for about 10 years now. i have a small wood shop in my garage. and i started turning about a year ago.

i hope to continue to learn about everything wood related and maybe give some helpful advice as well.

i am going to sign up for some of the turning classes at woodcraft. being self taught, i feel like i am not using some tools 100% correctly. some good lessons and advice on the fundamentals will do me well.
