Default Hello fellow turners!

Hi, I'm Tim. On Jan 18th of this year, I turned my first thing ever, a pen!
It was so fun, now I'm addicted. I try to make at least one pen a day after work. My plan was to learn the craft, so when I retire in nine years, I'd be good enough to make a little spending money. Well, my friends, coworkers, and people who have noticed my first pen in my pocket, have convinced me to sell now. In the past 30 days, I have sold 11 pens and have orders for 9 more. About two years ago, I started my wood working hobby. I've made a couple of shelves, a few work benches, and some cedar planters. My other hobby is target shooting. My new friend, Al Medlock, told me about Penturners.org. There's a lot of cool stuff on here, it's gonna take me forever to check everything out. I've turned several types of pens so far, I plan on learning all I can, and turning everything possible.

Thanks for letting me join,

Welcome Tim, 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?
