Hi from cold and wet Seattle

My name is jeff and I like to make lots of wood chips. I enjoy making my own designs on what my wife actually wants. She keeps telling me she is the customer but I keep telling her I am an "Artist".

Welcome Jeff
I think in time you find that in your situation "Customer" trumps "artist"... especially if you like adding tools to your inventory.

Great point. I have been married for about 14 years so you know I have compromised to get those tools.

Hi my name is Liz. I am from a suburb of Los angeles. I'm into woodturning but I would love to one day be able to make furniture. I would like to learn as much as I can about woodworking in general.

Welcome to the forum jghaviland. While I'd agree that this customer trumps you as an artist if you would like more tools. You can always say that, " I can do it your way but I will need a few more tools to do it."
