The Library is a great place to start, but it would be a help if someone could find a woodturning club in their area. We have the list of IAP chapters which is a start, but if one is not close or very active, who do you turn to for mentoring or help. The AAW woodturning clubs are a wealth of turning information and may have pen turners to be of help.
Also, what really are the basic set of tools that a beginner needs to get started?
I have enjoyed the thread recently on "What would I have done if I knew what I know now?". That needs to be part of the Library. OOps! I see the previous post has a link to that thread..............
Thanks for starting this thread.

Sometimes finding the right drill bit is a challenge. This chart helps me find the perfect size, or, if that bit is not available, it helps me find the next best size: http://content.penturners.org/librar...rillchart1.pdf
