Smile Hello from Palmetto, FL USA

Hello, I am Chip (dafuzz9) from Palmetto, FL USA. Now a retired Police Officer and was looking for something to do so, I went to a woodworking show and a group there was letting observers participate in making a pen. I was hooked! I use a Shopsmith as my lathe and liked it so much that I bought a second Shopsmith for my Son and now we both are making pens. We have each made about a dozen so far and learning all that we can. Hopefully, we can learn something here and pass on something that we may have experience with. Thanks for providing this arena!
