Re: Who are you - Paisano - 06-14-2008

May as well join the club. My name is Danelo, I am 65 and a retired educator. I have always enjoyed wood working, but have learned what little I know from books- I love to read.About 20 years back I bought a lathe ,made in Taiwan,for less than $100 and enjoyed turning untill the motor died. To make a long story short, I layed off woodworking for 10 years. For the past three weeks I have been cleaning and fixing my shop and having a great time. I should be turning as soon as my new lathe arrives. On a separate note: The response to my questions and information provided by all of you is the best reward of all. It is great to know that there is a group of people who are willing to share unselfishly what they know with complete strangers is phenomenal . You are a very special group of people.

My name is Mike Bourey I am new to this forum. I have been to a couple meetings with The Golden Triangle woodturners here in Denton, Texas. I have been looking for a decent lathe to get started with.

JD...Up till now I have been building Rustic and outdoor items as a hobby and craft shows for the last few years. I then found turning as a means to offer something for repeat customers. I am new to turning and have been turning Pens for about two months now. I am ready to take the step up to bowls. Real life job is very high pace and stressful..Hint.. I am the guys that looks for your stolen tools and tracks down the bad guy so I look forward to the weekend to unwind in the shop..

I am Bob and just learning to turn. I found a Jet lathe for $200.00 and couldn't pass it up. I've been reading and making lots of fire wood for the next winter.

Re: Who are you - Jason/Woody - 08-25-2008

Hmm, guess I havent done this. I'm Jason, as my name denotes. Call me Woody or Jason. Fitting nickname for a woodworker isn't it? Been woodworking off and on since 7th grade shop class, mostly off, but on the last few years. Now I can afford my own stuff. Turned a couple of things in that same shop class, and just really started turning again about a month ago. Mainly interested in pens.
