    Hello, everyone. My name is David, and I'm a 'Turner... wait, wrong meeting. :)

    But seriously, I'm new here and quite new to turning but have been bitten by the bug. I started off by making pens, but have ventured out a bit to make a bowl and an egg, in order to practice new skills.

    I don't have any formal training, but have watched quite a bit of videos and then put that to practice.

    I look forward to talking with youse guys and making some new friends, and hopefully learning some new stuff along the way.

    D

    I'm in Houston. I absolutely love San Antonio. I'm not a Texan, though. I'm a transplant from the East Coast. Lol

    David, if you could possibly get away for a weekend this is going on in Waco in August:

    http://www.swaturners.org

    It's the 2nd largest Turning convention in the country. A bunch of us go every year, great time and an incredible place to learn about turning, seeing some incredible work and buy all kinds of supplies, tools, etc. Would be great if you can join us! Tony
