Well, my username here is my real name. I'm Matt. Air Force for 13 years. Software Engineer for the past 7. Just recently decided to get back into woodworking after a 15 year hiatus. I answer to lots of things. Matt, Matt-man, Gatman, and I answer to my wife for everything. Looking to get my first lathe real soon after Christmas. Just don't know which one it's going to be. Versatile but not a tiny one. I already know I want to do pens and bowls. Not large bowls, mind you. Not looking for my 'last lathe' just a pretty good one.
Me? My real name is Mutley. 48. Been turning for 3-1/2 years.

Never, under ANY circumstances, make the last cut.

Real name, Reed. Been turning almost 10 years now. My flat work is falling off. robo hippy came from a construction job years ago. Would twirl my hammer around and try to get it into the hammer loop on my belt (like robo cop), and was wearing a big knee brace, one guy on the crew shouts out "hey, its robo hippy", and I kind of liked it. I am/was kind of a hippy type, at least some what alternative.

...and I have a woodhead!

I turn, therefore I am!
Well, my name is Mike... last name starts with Bum... so hence the nick name "Bummer" Have had a lathe (just a Jet 1236) for a few years now but am still pretending to be a turner. My wife is the turner. Still more into flat work but get more interested in turning as time goes on.
Who are you
