A "Rookie" Joins the Forum...

Hello to the group,

I just found this site today and registered. I've been a professional studio woodturner for more than 13 years (Eurowood Werks Studio) concentrating on production bowls, platters and hollow forms. In the last year and a half, I have slowly transitioned my studio away from so much production work and I now concentrate primarily on artistic work.

I'm a prolific writer on woodturning related subjects (more than 150 articles published to date) and I have published two books and three videos. I'm also a technical author for the Guild of Master Craftsman's "Woodturning" magazine, which is published in London England and more than 60 other countries around the world.

When I'm not in the studio, I enjoy digital photography and video, as well as learning the nuances of lighting and scene composure for photography. If I can help any of you with woodturning related questions, please do not hesitate to contact me, or post a question on the board. Take care and best wishes to you and yours!

Talking Welcome Steve,

Very impressive resume, there guy,for a "rookie" heh...heh You are in good company being from Texas, it seem like half the folks on here are as well. Like they always say "lets see some photos of that beautiful work" There is a post on "posting photos" if you are not familiar with the process and also FAQ's have the proceedure for creating albums. You'll like it here we are all friendly ...except for the meanies! bill

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Talking Guilty as charged...

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome... : I will try and post some photos, but I usually have problems with most boards getting them uploaded properly. I'm on a Mac, so that may be part of the problem...

Darren - Bingo, I'm "Dr. Boil" in the flesh... That protocol really saved my production bowl turning business. Had I not developed it, I would probably be doing something else right now. It is used all over the world not only by woodturners, but by several sawmills/timber exporters for treating solid wood blanks before exporting. I'm glad it continues to help so many people.

BTW, your website is way cool... I will stop in and visit more when I get a chance. Take care and best wishes to everyone!
