Re: Who are you - sin - 12-21-2007

Real name's Dave and I've started turning a few months ago..... been lured here from the flat side. I started off trying to get my wife interested in turning so when I needed something "turned", I'd keep it in the family. Well, it looks like that backfired...... now, I'm behind in furniture and home improvement projects. Good news is.... the wife is interested and starting to ask questions. So now I just need to plan my time better............... well, actually..... ALOT better. Oh and I'm an old 45 yrs. young......

Sorry - for a second I was channeling Pete Townshend.

Re: Who are you - Cian - 12-21-2007

I'm Cian.

Pronounced "Shawn."

It's an Old Gaelic Irish spelling.

Problem is, I'm not Irish.

I'm Filipino.

And why is it do they spell Filipino with an "F" when the Philippines is with a "PH"?

Anyway, I'm a ripe 37 years old.

I've been equipped to turn for about a year.

I've been turning for negative 6 months.

(I figure I'll start turning in possibly six months if I ever get my shop done. )

Re: Who are you - pinky - 12-21-2007

Hi, My name is John. I'm 46. I was at a craft show in Hawaii 9 years ago. I was blown away by the wooden bowls. The very next day I was looking for my 1st lathe. I have alot more ideas in my head on what I would like to make than the time and energy to do so. I have met quite a few woodnetters. A good bunch of guys.
