Default Hello from West Virginia!!!

Hey Everyone!!!

So I'm a rookie turner but a long time woodworker. I've been doing the scroll side of things for 15-20 years. I got a HF lathe, and popped out a few pens for Christmas presents and found I really enjoy working on the lathe. I'm a "how to" and "hands on" kind of guy so I have to be doing to learn. You can type out directions to me and I may understand. Sorry, also diagnosed with inattentive ADHD as well. :-) I added a PSI DC motor kit to the HF lathe for some variability, I have a pressure pot set up (HF) and a vacuum chamber. Neither of which look good aesthetically, but here in WV, we dont' worry about looks. HAHA;

I'm interested in broadening my horizons and learning from the seasoned vets here. Everywhere from sharpening tools, to wondering if I can hack normal pens and other stuff in WalMart to make my own kits to figuring out how to brighten Alumilite dyes to perfecting a finish (or at least look good anyways)

Thanks, stay safe, and I look forward to talking. I love to chat!

Welcome Jay, 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?
