I would definitely recommend you reading as much as you can from our library of knowledge. There are a ton of great tutorials in there. If you cannot learn from any of those,, you are on your own,,
Have fun, and welcome,,
Happy to Turn Corners
In GOD I Trust
I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die to find out there isn't, then to live my life as if there is no God and die to find out there is.
Practice random kindness and commit senseless acts of beauty.

Well, I'm here to introduce my self, Have always had a special place for wood in my life and now I am going to start turning pens, spent some time getting supplies after the holidays and should have my first go at it in a couple weeks. Also delving into carving and wood sculpting, just a great way to relax and be creative. I'm going to be using a shopsmith Mark V to begin with, but will likely pick up a mini lathe down the road once I sell a few pen and pencil sets. Trying to learn all I can about finishes and working with both wood and "Coreian", even got some deer antler from Santa!!!
Looking forward to chatting with as many of you as I can.
