Default Another random guy shows up...

Hello everyone!

My name is Matt. I am 34, work in the financial world by day (broker), play with a variety of things in my off time.

I have recently started turning (started with pens), and I think a bug may have bit me. So far I have neglected building a smaller storage area for my outdoor/lawn equipment, having spent most of the spring turning things, jammed into my little shed.

Ive been lurking around these parts for a couple of months, so I figured I ought to join up to ask some things once in a while.

Im not new to forums, though each has a personality, so forgive me if I make a mistake or ask another dumb question that has been answered dozens of times. Ill try to search and read, too!
