Hi there!! Newbie from Long Island!!..

Hi everyone! My name is Frank and I'm an avid woodworker, and have been for quite a while. I am an autocad draftsman - I guess you can say I engineer furniture and create production drawings for shop fabrication. Aside from that, I run my own side business designing and building custom poker tables.
I was just looking for a great site to go to, where there is a deeper appreciation for woodworking and the processed that go along with it. Seems like a great site! I look forward to checking it out!

Thanks!!

Hey, Frank ... welcome to the forum

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

Hi Frank, Welcome!

I got interested in woodworking when I was about 24 in 1968. I played around with it a few years and went into building cabinets full time in 1974. I stayed in business until 1992, took 5 years off and traveled and rested up, then went back into cabinet work and property management in 1997. I'm essentially a box builder . . . kitchens, vanities, entertainment centers, surrounds & valances. I do some simple furniture like tables and china cabinets.

Pictures are eye candy for woodworkers:-)

Frank,

Where do you get your wood?

I've got a shop full of 30-year old woodworking tools.
I got a Jet lathe last September (JWL-1220vs).

I get my turning blanks via the Internet.

I wish we had a Woodcraft or Rockler near us.

Hi Joe,
It's been a long while since I've done woodworking with hardwoods. I used to turn pens alot....probably hundreds. I used to use corian scraps, or any scraps I could find to turn pens, atomizers, etc....
Penn State Industries is where I used to get my supplies, but that was years ago.

Now, I have my own business designing and making custom poker tables (www.TLCpokertables.com). Materials are mainly plywood based, but it's still woodworking I guess!

Do you turn a lot? I have a friend who makes amazing bowls and other turnings.....Do you have any pics posted?

Frank

Frank,

I'm still very much a novice turner.
Check my photo album to see my lathe, the bench I built for it, and my first two projects.

I just finished two 10" bowls (Ash & Birch) which I took a long time to finish.

I'm about to make a pen for the first time. The kit should arrive from PSI before the end of the week.
