Permission to come aboard
I am new to wood turning and as green as they come...LOL I have been building wooden model ships; modern warships and ships of sail.
I took an interest in wood turning and decided to try my hand at it with a goal to learn how to taper ship mast's and other turning for my ship modeling hobby and whatever else might come along. I have invested minimally until I learn the basics, as such I purchased the Grizzly Hobby Lathe.
I like it so far and for what I intend to do with it I feel it is a good investment. I bought some wood turning tools at Harbor Freight and I have been practice turning trying to get a feel for the tools and the lathe.
