Who are you
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......
It's nothing but a thing........

Sorry - for a second I was channeling Pete Townshend.

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. )

If anyone in the Chicago/Shaumburg area is interested in a coffee/turning talk I'll be at the wood show there in jan/feb.

When it comes to your work, take the same time and effort to present it, as you did to make it.
Question everything, nobody has it all figured out perfectly.
Larry Guthrie...been called Arlo and Woody (how fitting)...no relation to either that I know. Turning about 3 years I think. Bowls, platters, plates, and boxes are among my favorite to turn. Newest hobby is learning to play guitar...talk about a vortex.
I hated woodshop in school...now I don't want to leave mine.
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.
And I'm Brian McInturff, hence Turff49. I'm an Environmental Site Manager for Hazardous waste cleanup. Whew, I hate having to say all that. Been turning for about 3-4 yrs.
