welcome to the forum

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

I'm not a wood turner but a wood enthusist that owns a Lucas sawmill that feeds my habit. Came here to learn what you wood turner guys do and what you use in the way of wood. Got turned on to this site from a pen turner and the mention of spalted wood that are favored. Can't help but laugh at myself and the "rotten wood" I thrown in the chip pile because it was too small to make a 4' board.

After 25 years military (mostly active guard) I retired and bought the mill chasing a dream that got shelved 25 years ago. I love it.

I know a couple of people (Darin at least) from other forums I'm on.

I make simple furniture for family members and do custom sawing for various people. Predominate wood in my area of the world is conifir of which I tend toward VG D. Fir as a specialty but we do have a lot of white oak, big leaf maple, red alder and the various YARD trees with and without nails.
I have reached my hand into makeing dulcimers which should be fun. It uses small pieces of wood which I favor. Just wish I had some really nice sitka spruce for sound boards.

I'll most probably lurk and learn from all you experts. What you people do is a whole new world for me. The only thing I know about turning wood is not to have the pith in a turning block.
