“I love those chuckle heads!” Yep, you got the right attitude! Welcome aboard.
Just be careful with power tools, they have no feelings when it comes to wood or flesh.

when you have an itch you just have to scratch it.
So which projects on here tickle your fancy? By your list (plate, bowl, cup) it sounds like the lathe is beckoning you.

Thanks for your support, guys! I’m very aware of the dangers of power tools and all the “scary sharp” things in the shop. As far as my dream project, I’m leaning towards a dough bowl, to use in my bread making. There are so many shapes and sizes of bowls out there that interest me, so if I ever make a decision, I’ll get busy on that.I will have plenty of guidance from Jim, but I truly want to do this all on my own. Well see!

Welcome to the woodworking northwest. A dough bowl brings up all sort of ideas, from a lathe bowl to a routed out bowl to one layered up of jigsawed out frames and sanded smooth. Have fun and do not let thelaughter bother you, from the sound of your husband and sons they will help and support you. My wife evenlets me in the kitchen and sometimes even eats what I cook!! Let us see the better results, you only showthe mistakes to those closest to you to get corrections.

Bluepine38, I understand about the kitchen thing. When my hub’s is in “my space” rummaging around, looking for something, I feel a little like he must feel when I’m out in his shop, looking for a handful of nails or using his chop saw to cut off a piece of 2×4 to prop open a door! We must respect each others work space. Now, when he starts cooking actual food in my kitchen, I might feel a bit happier about things!
