Welcome to the IAP. I am also just up the road in Cabot.

If you don't want to wait till June for the next Pen Turners meeting. Which I must say was really pretty good last week (first my wife and I have been to) she is a turner also.

But any how. The Diamond State Wood Turners meet the third Thursday of each month right up the road and a little closer in Jacksonville. We meet from 6:30pm till 8:30pm. You did just miss the meeting last Thursday but the next meeting is April 21st.

There are members with varied interest's in turning. Pens, bowl, hollow forms and more.

We have a demo every month on some type of turning. So you be exposed to a lot of different things. And believe me the techniques for one apply to all. We also have a turning session at a members home shop were you can get hands on experience in turning with using the varied tools. It is usually on the Saturday after the meeting.

Let me know if you might be interested in checking it out, you would be more then welcome. Be glad to supply you with directions to the meeting location and other info.

I'm in LR, and would be glad to let you do some turning on my lathe too. My garage is full right now since I'm having my deck replaced, and everything from my deck, and much of the wood and tools for building the deck is in my garage right now. But in about a week, I should be back in business.

Our next meeting is going to be in NLR on the 18th of June. Here's the thread that will give you the information. June 18th, 2016 A lot of the details will be coming later, but if you'll subscribe to the thread, and have your settings right, you'll get emails whenever anyone posts to the thread.

Also, if you'll PM me your name, phn number, and e-mail, I'll add you to our roster.
