Hello all,cheers for the welcome I've had to this excellent website,very friendly.
I've been working with wood ever since I was allowed sharp tools at 10 years old.My first projects were balsa framed,tissue covered gliders.
Other childhood projects included the obligatory bow & arrow,peg gun & boomerang.
The real passport into woodworking though was when we did woodturning at school when I was 14.
WOW,there are few thing in my creative life that have filled me with such excitement & enthusiasm.
Now I don't know what your schools were like but at my school we weren't allowed to use the power tools when the teacher wasn't in the room,something to do with insurance, but I couldn't help myself & snuck in during free periods & lunch hours,much to the chagrin of the teachers who awarded me several stints of detention for my pleasure.
I didn't care though & those early sessions on the lathe,a Union Graduate with a 4 foot bed & outboard spindle no less,lit a fire that still burns to this day 21 years later.
to be continued.....
