Default Porker356 introduction

Hi everyone from a cold and wet Cumbria, England
Just wanted to say hello. I have been pen making and wood turning for about 5 years. I took up hobby to help me recover from labyrinthitis which left me with a balance and coordination problem. It helped immensely. I just love working with all wood because of the colour and grain. Yew and Olive are my particular favourites.

Welcome Ian, from Sydney Australia,
Pleased to hear that Pen Making and Wood Turning is helping with the problems left from your labyrinthitis
Usually Woodturners are considered by some, to be real "Pain in the Necks".
A good thing with this site, also, is that I have not heard anyone mention "Cricket".
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?
