Location: Colorado Springs, CO

I am an aspiring woodturner. I have been turning for about 2 1/2 years after none other than BigWoodTurner talked my wife into buying a midi lathe when I had told her I had no interest in turning and was enjoying the other woodworking I was doing. Well my first lesson with Dale changed the whole thing and I have hardly touched my other equipment since. I bought a VicMarc 300 and have enjoyed the progression and even the failures of my new love. Dale has helped me tremendously and I look forward to being somewhat semi retired and enjoying it even more. My home is on 9 acres so I have the luxury of tons of fresh pine for practice but moving onto other species as I feel comfortable.
I have lived in Colorado Springs for 25 years originally from San Diego. I have spent the last 37 years in finance and ready to get out and enjoy turning a bit more.
I also look forward to having new Lumberjock friends. Tim

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless
