Default Hello From New Hampshire

Hi there. I'm new to this whole pen turning thing. I had messed around with wood turning a bit when I was in school, and recently thought that it might be fun to get back into it in some way, since I remembered finding it relaxing, and I don't create anything tangible at my day job.

I took a beginner pen turning class at Rockler, and am in the process of acquiring and setting up a small shop in the corner of my small basement. I have bought a bunch of inexpensive blanks since I don't want to ruin expensive ones learning, a few kits, and just need to wait on my lathe to arrive, and to set it up before my first solo pen.

I've been lurking for a bit, so wanted to say hi before the questions start coming.

Welcome Skip, 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?
