Its been so long that I visited this forum, I dont remember if I stated anything before.

I started turning in HS, then got a Shopsmith, then moved to a Record long bed lathe, a bad back made me sell the Record, got the back fixt, had to buy a new lathe, got a 14 inch Jet. I turn whole log mesquite. i prefer wet wood but here in Texas, wet wood is only found in lakes and even then it can be dry.

I am an engineer by education, and dyslexic. I used to think I was spastic, but with halfzhimers, I cant remember half or what I need to know, and the other half is probably not correct either. Explains a lot.

Keep on turning and Einstein was right, its all relative.

I just looked and realized I hadn't posted in this thread before.

Michael, business marketing enginerd by profession... been working with wood for 20+ years, but only fell into the vortex in late '08. Thougth the vortex was only a small eddy or a mild duststorm, not an F5 tornado.


Re: Who are you - Lee - 01-28-2010

My name is Lee. I have actually bought five lathes over the last few years, but I didn't use them, (I like tools).

I went to a blacksmithing conference and started learning to work metal last October. My current venture into turning was supposed to be an easy way to make handles, for all the new tools I would make on the forge.

I asked for a Rikon for Christmas, because I thought my wife would enjoy using it. I have checked out every single turning book in the library, and I have been going through them project by project to teach myself how to turn. I spend 20-40 hours a week turning.

Hi folks,

I'm Jonathan, mostly hangout in the handtools forum. I'm a biologist with U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. I've been turning about 4 months. Pens, bowls, tool handles, and most recently a couple end grain boxes. I think I like boxes the best!
