Smile Greetings from Central California

Hi all! I am just getting started looking into woodturning. A very very good friend of mine, who is retired, got into penturning while he and wife travel the country in their motor home. He recently gave me a pen that he made, and I was immediately fascinated and started looking. I hope to RETIRE retire in about another 16 months, so I thought now would be the time to start looking at what I might do to keep busy when I am not singing! And wood turning looks like a lot of fun and something I can do on an old retired dude's income if I start investing in the major purchases now, while I still have a decent income. OK... I talk too much! Howdy! Will be looking for advice and hints from y'all! OH...if ya hadn't guessed already, my name is Ben.
