Default Good Evening from Southern Alberta!

First, thank you Jeff for the approval! I've been a creeper (not in a bad way) on the forums for about a year now while learning how to turn and decided it was time to join.

My name is Mike. I live in Lethbridge, a city of close to 100,000 in Southern Alberta. I've been turning pens now for just under a year. I did some wood turning in High School (which was over 20 years ago) and purchased a lathe to help with my wood ring finishing. Since the lathe was sitting for days without use, and I was bored, I decided to see what else I could use the lathe for and am now 100% addicted to pen turning!

I hope to make some new friends in the group, learn from the masters and help out the newbies!

As soon as I figure how I'll upload some images of my work!

Welcome Mike, from Sydney Australia.
Turn that special piece of Timber you have been keeping.
Enjoy it for its true beauty.
Why leave it for others to enjoy without you?
