Cool stuff, I can hardly wait to get started myself. I just went to a basics class this evening for 3 hours, it was very informative. Of course I get a lot of info here, that's what led me there in the first place. Keep up the turning and enjoy.

looks like you've got a good touch ... nicely finished stuff.

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

Nice start with a good variety of shapes. I've only turned pens and a tool handle but I'm starting on bowls soon.

Good lookin' stuff there, well done!

Like you, I too am new and learning...
Though you seem to have a better eye for shapes than I possess.

It's amazing how I can find wood to turn nearly everywhere I look.
My first pieces were from scraps I had yet to chunk in the burn pile.

Be careful though, it is certainly addicting.


...ever notice how "I'm sorry" and "I apologize" mean the same thing, unless you are at a funeral..?
