Smile Hello from Lake Wales FL

Hello to everyone. My name is Bill.. I recently started pen turning and love it a great deal. I am a retired disabled firefighter and was looking for something to add to my woodworking hobby. After starting I have stopped all other woodworking except pen turning. I love the different aspects and things you can do from making your own acrylic blanks to stabilizing wood and ect. It has become very addicting but I need to be sure to not over do it..Thanks for allowing my membership to the organization I know there is a ton of information and many great people to converse with.

Welcome Bill...you are right at my back door. I’m a semi-retired semi-disabled LEO and like turning as well. If you ever want to get together shoot me a PM and let me know. I am on the winter Haven/lake wales boarder. I also am a member of the Woodturners of Polk County that meets in Bartow.

Welcome Bill, from Sydney, Australia.
Thank you for your Service.
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?
