Wow what a question and a hard one to answer. I will have to go way back in years when i was 14yrs old in JR High school. while all the other kids was making checker broads out of ash and mahogany, I was gluing the same woods but in to a 6x6x20 for my first turning which was a lamp. My lamp won first place in the school art show. then my shop teacher submitted it to a local JR Collage's art show. I was a little embarrassed standing next to this little lamp while 22yr old collage guys are standing next to their roll top desk and full sized bed. well the roll top desk won first place, a kitchen table won second, and my little lamp won 3rd. So at that time i was sucked up in the vortex and there was no turning back. now 50yrs old and several thousands of dollars later my hobby as been a big part of my life and always will.
