Thanks for the welcome. No secret about my age, I am 56. My grandfather was a master craftsman with many skils so I guess I get the need to butcher a piece of wood from him.. I say that b/c compared to him that is what it would be.
He built a lathe back in the 30s and I was able to rescue it from an auction of my uncles things. I have played around with it a bit and turned a couple of things such as a small pepper mill, Christmas Ornimant, and a handle for a skew I made from an old file. I have an intrest in segmented turning and have been doing some studying on that.
I will post some pictures in a few days or if you are a member of Lumberjocks searchon "My Grandfathers Woodworking" and you can see the lathe there along with his work. I also have a few pics of mine.
