Ok i get the hint ladies and gentlemen. I understand your skepticism. I will kindly and respectfully leave your community. I broke the rules and solicted for help even they she was told not to do so. Thanks to all of you that have helped out it was very much appreciated. To the rest of you I am sorry you feel the way you do, I apologize if you feel I cause you any ill intent. I was just trying to help someone in need!
Good day all.

Moderators please close this thread.

Well my sister-in-law sent me a text and said she signed up for the site. She said she will not mention her name but she is going to tell the truth about her big brother. I told her not to worry about it and I would take care of the problem.

My sister-in-law graduated high school in 2012. She is currently in college, she is going to further educate herself to become a fish and game officer. She recently came to me with an interest is the woodturning. So we bought her a lathe. She turned a bowl, then another one, then a mug and again another one. She attended a class in vermont for a day. She spends most of her time at the turning tent at the craftsmans fair. She wanted to do more than just turn firewood that i would bring home from work. We bought her some stuff at woodcraft. She needed more. So i took it upon myself to do what i did in 2012 for her senior project in maple sugaring, i had permission from the school to solicit for donations in 2012 for her senior project. Seeing how i am helping her cousin in another school district in the state with his senior project on photography. I figured why not set her up with another senior project and get her some extra stuff for her hobby. So thats what i did. I figured this time I will tell the truth instead of her coming in her to bail her big brother out of the mess he got himself into. Anyway i was just trying to help her out in her hobby of woodturning and went about it the wrong way. She blames that on my mental issues. Maybe thats why my wife and I are going to counseling. Who knows.
I apologize to all of you for causing any harm! I ws just trying to help out my sister-in-law. I understand if you remove me from the community. Please allow her to remain if she did sign up.
Thank you all for your time.
Moderators please remove me from your forums.

To bad Rockler doesn't have anything, I was there today and the guys were turning bowls, stopped by on my way home from Freeport
I've got to stop in--I didn't even know it was there until we went by it on a trip back to my daughter's from the Maine Mall. Their prices on pen stuff looks a little high, but it's nice to actually look at things. Hope you enjoyed your visit to Freeport (and still have some money left).

Good morning. I am going to remain anonymous if you do not mind. I am the sister in law. I am here to see what kind of trouble my crazy brother has caused this time. He has good intentions, but he goes about things the wrong way. He is a good guy honestly he is. I think he has some mental issues. My sister made him go see a counselor, his mental issues are starting to affect their marriage.
I do apologize for any trouble he may have caused. I told him to just br honest, and people help out if they felt the need to. I see by reading his posts he has been honest in some aspects and in others he embellished the truth or just down right lied. I understand he is just trying to help me out but there is no excuese for the way he went about doing so.
He was honest on his last post. I did graduate in 2012, and I am currently in college for environmental science. He is also helping my cousin with his senior project in photography. My goal is to become a Fish and Game Officer as well. I will have to give him credit for being honest.
I do enjoy woodturning as my brother has stated. My sister is the bread maker in the family. So she is the one who has been buying me all the stuff for my woodturning fetish. I would say my big brother is just trying to make up for alot of things that he lacks in. I honestly think it is a horrible thing that i have to come here and try to fix his misleading ways. I do apologize for his actions and I hope you see as well as others that he was just trying to help his sister.
Big brother I am no longer a child, as you have stated in your posts I am a young adult. You do not need to do everything for me, you do not need to get everything for me.
You do need to understand that you are my big brother no matter what. I told you to be honest up front, people will help me if i am doing a senior project as you stated or as I am stating starting a new adventure in woodturning. Honesty is always the best policy. You know that as you were a Marine, now start acting like one again.
I am sorry for all the havoc my brother has caused. I would like to thank those who have sent stuff to him. I have not been over to his house in a couple of weeks, so I am not sure what he has procured in that time frame. I will use what ever it is that was sent, it may take me some time to do so. I am after all in college, I also play a number of sports at the college. I also work a part time job during my semester's here at college.

I wish you all a good day!

Prices aren't bad, just remember your not paying for shipping. I guess they have demo day every Saturday. The guys looked like they were having fun they had about 6 lathes running. I came back with a few dollars, we go up every year. Love it up there.

This is unfortunately a situation in which we have been scammed. The 'brother' and 'sister' are the same person...

The story has changed, been amended, and adapted as elements of the lie were called out - and it's over now. The accounts have been locked.

Anyone who was going to send something - please do not! If you have already sent something, please PM Jeff.
