Seasons greetings to all. Dabbling in the turning arts and experimenting with a variety of projects from minibats, bowls, pens, cutting boards and ring holders. At 67, I am looking at a transition to retirement on the horizon and enjoying learning new skills and enjoying the products from a little manual labor and creativity. Will be looking for lots of guidance along the way and gaining information from all you experts out there!

Wow! So great to see so many positive reviews and to meet some new friends! Still have a few projects to wrap up before Christmas to help Santa! Looking forward to working more and learning more from all of you. Thanks so much for the positive reinforcement!

Hey, Dennis, welcome to the forum. Nice stuff. One thing I ask though is that you always identify the specific woods used when you show pics so we don't have to ask or guess. Thanks.

Wow Dennis. Welcome. I just sincerely hope that by joining this crazy group that we don't attribute to your new wood addiction and cause you to work extra years!!! Enjoy. that cutting board is outstanding!!! as is everything you showed, but the cutting board just really got my attention. Best wishes.

So sorry! Will do in future! One bowl and the pens, coincidentally, are olive wood, the other bowl is Purple Heart and the board is a lively combination of brown wood, marble wood, walnut, Purple Heart and maple. Got a few more of those ready for family gifts, but shhh, don’t tell anyone! I’ve completed about 50 pens so far in a variety of woods and styles.
