Re: Who are you - Bill Blasic - 12-21-2007

That's my real name, I wanted to be Bill Grumbine but that ert321 guy used it. Been turning for about 6 of my 61 years and I'm starting my third year as President of Preque Isle Woodturners in Erie, PA. It's been an enjoyable albeit expensive 6 years but I would not trade the the times and people I've met for anything.

My real name is Michael - another software developer, 40 years old and been turning for about 2 months. I started making custom joysticks as an offshoot of my favorite pastime, arcade machines. Then I started looking for a way to make my creations stand out a bit. I came up with the idea to use wooden tops to match the case. I purchased a Jet 1014VS and started down the slippery slope.

Re: Who are you - Gary G™ - 12-21-2007


My real name is Gary; folks call me Gary, Gary G, Mr. G, or Bubba.

Been doing flatwork a while.
I turned one or two little things some time ago but didn't really use a lathe.
I've been turning pens just over a year -- Dec. 10th '07, I made my first one.
Last month, I turned my first lidded box and a couple 'o ugly goblets.
This year, I expect to try more experiments with the lathe.
Lookin' forward to visitin' here more too.

Merry Christmas y'all.

John, but will answer to "JB", Peppers, "one more round", "Hay, big boy, you come here often". Now, I must admit that last one has never happened, but I would answer to it.
Been turning for a few years but still feel like a rookie...

WOW!! could it be true that when "Grampa Steve"'s mother used all three names she called him "Grampa Steve Hamilton" and he thought he was in trouble. She must have been one tough great-grandma!!
