When you do post a pic or two, tell us, please, about your best moment as a turner, and your worst experience as a turner. My best was getting the first project off the lathe. The worst was blowing up a pen before I even had the blank round. super glue notwithstanding, 3/4 of the blank disappeared in about 1/120th of a second. Learning good technique through small projects is much better than losing a finger, though, I guess. Still have all eight of mine, and both thumbs, too.
