Hello to everyone. My name is Bill.. I recently started pen turning and love it a great deal. I am a retired disabled firefighter and was looking for something to add to my woodworking hobby. After starting I have stopped all other woodworking except pen turning. I love the different aspects and things you can do from making your own acrylic blanks to stabilizing wood and ect. It has become very addicting but I need to be sure to not over do it..Thanks for allowing my membership to the organization I know there is a ton of information and many great people to converse with.
