New here, saying hi

Hello all, I'm new here and would like to say hello to all and thanks for having me.

My name is Wayne and I have been a woodworker for nearly 10 years, myself being nearly 30 years of age, and I have been turning a good bit for the past 2 or 3 years.
I am just starting my own small wodworking business, Visions Custom Creations, and I will take on most any project someone would like, although I specialize in smaller goods, such as keepsake boxes, jewelry boxes and an "electronic accessory charging cabinet" of my own design, as well as turned items such as bowls, small lamps, pens and other turned items of which there are nearly endless kits available.

I am doing most business locally and at a few craft shows and such, but do have a website in the works. It's been very fun and challenging, and it's been my dream to have my job be something I love. It's not my sole income source, but I aspire for it to be one day.

I am looking forward to talking to all of you, and hope to learn a lot along the way. From the looks there is a lot of talent and knowledge here.

Thanks for letting me join you

Wayne, welcome to the forum. Good luck with making a living at woodworking. Folks DO it of course, but my understanding is that it's a hard row to hoe until you get established and that takes a LOT of perseverance and some luck.

You'll find this a great place to talk about woodworking including turning.


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