Default New to the Site - From NW Indiana

Good day,

New to the site and really new to turning. Just got myself a little lathe from harbor freight and I'm about to start my first pen. I've tinkered with making them off and on with my father but I've finally set up a little shop of my own so I'm excited to dive in and learn.

From the looks of it I'll have plenty of resources on this website. I'm looking forward to learning what I can from this site!

My first question if you don't mind...

I know of Penn State Industries website but I was curious what other websites are good places to go for tools and/or supplies? Thanks in advance!!

Welcome from South Carolina.

Check out the list of vendors that donated to the BASH, (on the homepage).
Also, the Vendor Forums at the top of the page.

Welcome Chris, 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?
