My areas of interest vary..
I dabbled in wood working over the years, but before I retired in 2009 I had outfitted a nice shop where I used to have a garage.
I like furniture ( designed and built chest of drawers, end tables, hall tables, shop furniture, exterior furniture), boxes (made championship ring boxes a number occasions, gift boxes and a few boxes I've sold on request), bowls as gifts, ornaments, ... In last year I've gotten into a midi lathe, exploring turning, pens, bowls, ornaments, ... Also been building some turning tools,..
Looking forward to enhancing my turning experiences and knowledge. I am getting focused on building my own turning tools at the present time.
I would like to figure out how to get more wood for highly figured and natural edged bowls, rather than get the expensive burls and vanilla flavored blanks.
