I have been checking out this site for over a week now and finally registered on it a few days ago. I haven't had much of a chance to introduce myself, working 12hr shifts with one day a week off, so I have had to peek in on some of the postings every now and then. I have seen some amazing pieces so far, on the turning pages. And look forward to seeing some more... maybe even make something to compare someday.
I myself have been handymaning it around the house for years, minor carpentry (bookshelves, coffee tables, small things), I did my own Tile flooring and back splashes, even figured out how to install my wifes Farm Sink( Not as hard as I thought ). But, A little over a year ago I bought a Rikon MiniLathe and it has been turning, turning, turning.
Thank You to firehawkmph for the pdf on the Peppermill it'll be about a week before I get to work with it but as soon as I get a few days off, after Turkeyday hopefully, I will be trying it out...
I have put on a few pics of the some of the stuff I've turned so far.
Looking forward to picking some of your brains on how to turn better and helping if I can.
