Talking Let's get this baby rollin'

Hi Everybody.......

I can't tell you all what a pleasure it is to be a part of this forum. From what I have have seen already there looks like some great craftsmen on here. I have been turning since high school....that's been a while now...it seems I learn more each time I fire up the lathe. I know for sure that there is at least 1 other turner here and he does a dandy job and looks like he has found a niche' for himself. I posted some pics in my gallery and today I'm going to take more pictures of some of my latest projects. Pictures are something I'm not too good at so just remember that most of my stuff looks better in person. Let's hear from some more turners....It won't be long and you all will have some sort of lathe

Don't be disheartened. This site is still in Beta stage which means I'm still setting up some features and making sure everything works right.
I plan to officially "launch" this site on Oct 30th which means the site will be advertised and a lot more traffic will start to visit.

Look forward to a much more active site (and some turners) then

Nathan...I am by no means dishartened....I just know so many woodworkers that have lathes. They are waaaayyyyyy back in the corner with 4" of sawdust on them and it's almost like if you are a cabinet maker then it is against the secret pact to use a lathe

That's for my buddies at West Side Cabinet...who better sign up soon...

It's my duty to inform those guys that it's okay to use your lathe....No it won't bite.....It may sling some bark inclusions at your head
But that's all.......

I like the site and I'm looking forward to it's continued growth.....

The photo upload is very nice to use. I'm used to something a bit more complicated.....

Steve, I am wanting to get into pen turning but haven't started yet and honestly don't have a lathe yet but soon. I made a lamp in high school and loved it. Maybe in a month or so I'll have one.

Do one thing at a time, do it well, then move on.

I do a little turning, nothing like Steve's though, if a guy knows what he is looking at he will appreciate what I am talking about...the figured stock alone he uses is out of my price range to have in a pile at my feet (and down my neck, in my shirt pocket, in my ear... ) I have 3 lathes (one homemade armbreaker) and enjoy them all they are the most fun tools in the shop, and really kinda relaxing. I have not invested in a quality lathe yet, I plan on it though. I will post some pictures of my little lathe projects soon, I have tried just about everything with moderate success.

OK Burl, I have three, One powermatic 45 that needs some lovin, an Oliver pattern makers lathe, and a shop made lathe bed that I can turn a 12" X 96" column for homes etc, I switch out the head stock from the oliver to the shop made lathe bed. But the restored oliver is my favorite! But I dont make living from turning, but do love doing it! It's kind of a primal thing.

I'm a turner primarily.

I primarily turn although I've got a basic shop for flat work as well. I use a 3520A that I've had for three years now. I used to focus primarily on bowls, but now I work on finding new project kits for wood turning.

Here's my latest.

Hello guys and gals, just wanted to post a couple of my projects:http://s4.photobucket.com/albums/y115/oscorner/

The shop is an old one. I've recently had the priviledge to build a 20X30 shop with 10 foot ceilings. Thanks for looking.
