Been turning for ..well, ok .. I'll be turning in about an hour. No really ... got a gift cert from my daughters to a Woodcraft turning class .. one of those intro .. pen making classes. Enjoyed it and carry that pen still. Now .. I'm not going to say that LOML had something to do with it ... ever since she went with me to a Rockler and saw a ..what .. a bubinga nut? .. big thing looks like an eggplant.. ya it was turned and looked great .. she said "you should do that" .. I said well I do some woodworking dear .. but I don't turn .. thats different ... next I know I get the gift from the daughters and as a follow up a pen turning lathe + gear for birthday gifts .. so I took the hint and am really looking forward to it ....

I go by Dick or Richard. I have been turning since the mid 80's, but only occasionally. It wasn't till I retired in 2003 that I have devoted more time too it, and can practice more.

Hi everyone from Ballarat, Victoria, Australia. I'm Robert. Retired and love the hobby. I turn wood, scroll saw wood, carve wood, set marquetry into wood, and at times - butcher wood. Through various forums I have made many friends internationally. Kind regards and best wishes to all. Robert
