I have turned a couple of bowls, a small platter, and have a class later today. I just came in from a walk in the woods that turned up a beautiful piece of birch and maple that may have some ambrosia activity going on. Both had fallen during bad wind storms last year, and may be seasoned enough to use. My mentor will decide and show me how to tell, I'm sure. I fixed the 'pic' thing for you and hope I don't get thrown out for it! LOLHey, Daryl, welcome to the forum. You've definitely come to the right place.
Pics. We must have pics. Rule here is, no pics it doesn't exist. SO ... up to now you haven't actually done any woodworking, have you?
Thank you so much! I am amazed at the postings I've read, and can't wait to get involved with some of the threads once I have a better understanding of what I'm doing and why. Right now I'm just learning the moves and doing as I'm told. My artistic ability will sneak in once I have total understanding of the lathe I'm using.Welcome from Colorado. Enjoy, you will find a lot of inspiration around here
Thank you so much! I moved here 20 years ago after spending most of my years between Marlborough and Wayland MA - this was an amazingly good move that has afforded me to learn to love the outdoors instead of being stuffed in a cubicle. The mountains and forests are incredible.Hey Neighbor, welcome from Taunton, Massachusetts. If you like working wood you're gonna love it here. Hope you enjoy the site
