Default New member from Tahlequah, OK

Tahlequah, OK... capital city of the Cherokee Nation Native American Tribe.

Hi, my name is Buddy Stacy. I have been woodworking for most of my 46+ years on this Earth. For as long as have been able to swing a hammer I have been trying to make something usable from raw wood materials.

I found turning in high school and feel in love immediately, but with no lathe at home I was not able to continue.

Got my first lathe about 15 years ago. Made a baseball bat for my son, several candle sticks and votive holders, bowls, etc. The usual fare. I was always interested in the pens, and even had a fellow woodworking friend of mine try to get me started by sending me a PSI instructional video on CD, but I always saw it as too expensive to get started in.

Finally, last Father's Day, when my wife asked what I wanted, I did not hesitate. I told her I wanted a starter kit for pen making. I have made at least 1 pen almost every day since then. I am having a blast and have been able to start a modest side business from it. It's therapeutic and encompasses everything I love about woodworking. Taking a gnarly, ugly, raw piece of wood and making something beautiful and useful from it.

Welcome, Buddy, from Sydney Australia.
Look forward to seeing some of your Pens.
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?

Don't ASK ... I might lie. Don't TELL me ... Iíll forget. But if you SHOW me I might remember; and if you INVOLVE me Iíll probably get it.
