Started wood carving 4 years ago while trying to prove a point to a guy who said he could not 2D an animal carving. At the local Easter Fair in 2009 I watched the local wood turner club members demonstrating and after asking some questions was told "you're a bit old to start this game mate" told him to get stuffed and off I went and bought a Midi Lathe and a couple of wood blanks and proceeded to teach myself to turn.
As a self taught wood turner I have found there is so much information on the internet and it is a matter of having a go at the different elements of turning a few failures also add to the lessons to be learnt. Have ventured into working with plywood and corian adding perspex (plexiglass) to some projects.
Another plus is you can forget this so called "golden rule" and do your own thing. Never take things to seriously and have fun creating something different and don't be afraid to share what you have learnt. I have been asked to demonstrate how I do things at the club that told me I was to old to learn and one day I might even do that.
