Default Howdy from Texas

Good evening to everyone. I am glad I found this site. It is packed full of information. I am a professional in the oil industry but my real passion is woodworking. I enjoy turning pens-still a novice and making scale models of all things from boats to cars to planes. It is my form of stress relief. I have attached a pictured of some of the pens I have turned. I don't do it for profit but for fun. Gave some to my co-workers as well as my son and daughter-in-law. I look forward to viewing the posts and ideas.

Default Howdy from Texas

Welcome from Katy, TX. Very nice pens. I'm still working in the oil field too, at least for now.

I've done a scaled model for an intern I mentored this Summer. It's a 1/24 scaled compressor scrubber.

Welcome, Dan, 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?
