I grew up on a farm in WA and worked as a machinist for a few years. Now I spend most of my time at work sitting at a desk. Woodworking is how I fulfill my need it make something. Right now my favorite thing to do is turning, especially bowls. But using rough cut lumber and building something nice out of it is so satisfying. I have built a couple apple cider presses in the last couple years.

Welcome! Great work on the press and the bowl. Good luck with convincing the boss your lathe is too small!

Jason, those are awesome. I certainly couldn't use the press....I would just sit there and look at it, right next to the fireplace!! Welcome from Colorado. Understand about sitting at a desk, making dust and shavings is great therapy!!!!

Welcome from the 3rd Coast. Grew up all over Clark County myself. Have you looked into pen turning?
