Default The new guy in Missouri

My name is Roger, and I am new to the forum, and to wood turning. I live in Missouri, and am the pastor of a small church. I bought a small jet lathe from a man that was at Silver Dollar City in Branson, MO several years ago. I have turned a couple of tops and candle holders, but I have been mostly turning ng pens. I am fasinated with the lathe, and can see this being a lifelong pasttime. I am looking forward to learning more about turning all sorts of things, and hope to become proficient. I appreciate those who have made this forum the great resource of information that it is.

Welcome Roger. I "was" a pastor and then spent 26 years overseas as a church planter. Now, I work with a large group of churches in church growth capacity. Making pens was my relaxation - and soon to be again.

This is a great hobby to have. Enjoy it. Lots of great information here and lots of supporters around too. Your area is dotted with experienced turners.

I get up to Ozark and Springfield (and Branson) every two of three months (daughter lives in Ozark.) Love your area of the country!

Welcome to the fun ride. Just started myself, but can see it is going to be an exciting rabbit hole.

Welcome from Texas, Roger.

If you get some pens made within the next 60 days, be sure and post a photo in the Show Off Your Pens forum and that will get you entered into a drawing for a gift certificate from Exotic Blanks.

Don't hesitate to ask any questions that you might have.
