I've been TURNING WOOD,building furniture,cabinets,and anything out of wood for the last 40 yrs.I think by now I must have wood dust in my veins.I worked 11 yrs for the HITCHCOCK CHAIR FACTORY in riverton ct . 6 of those yrs were spent in the sample shop building the prototype pcs. I worked 9 yrs for OVATION INSTRUMINTS in new hartford ct.carving guitar necks. I also worked at NININGER & COMPANY in ct. building very high end occasional tables.At this time I'm unemployed but doing wood turnings out of my garage and lovin every minute of it. I have a HAPFO AP5000 COPY LATHE and it really does the job! you can see it on my blog.I just picked up another HAPFO LATHE with a large hand wheel to advance the cutters. A great way to make money!

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

Joey It’s nice to here from someone who actually lived in winsted. Did you grow up here? My wife and I have lived here for 30 yrs. I grew up in burlington and moved here when we got married. Your name doesn’t sound fermiller to me. And there is ABC PIZZA & KENT PIZZA but no york pizza.

If anyone is interested, I posted a video ( I think) on my blog. I think it will work. It is a video of my copy lathe in action. I filmed it with one hand, while I ran the lathe with my other hand.
