Most of you are not going to turn on as large a scale as I do so you are not going to need as large a facility as I use. I am going to talk about what I call a coffin kiln. By enclosing an area under a wall mounted work bench about the size of a...

I am a retired army first sergeant that hopes one day I can make my living from my wood work. I did 22 years in the army and retired in 98. I love all kinds of wood working but my specialty is wood turning. My biggest lathe allow me to turn 6 feet in diameter and 12 feet between centers and is the reason I retired from the army. I do no production work only original pieces. I hope to make my living from my work because the buyer wants what I do. I have another job but that deffinately is not what floats my boat.
I was talking on line with Mike and he pointed out that some may be frustrated when they see work that they can not figure out how it is done. I want everyone to know that I have never taken a single woodturnig or woodworking class. I will freely give any advice I can, I mean that. I may not answer your question as fast as it comes in but I will answer it to the best of my ability. I believe in initiative, those who ask are taking the initiative. Please understand not all of my woodturning or woodworking projects came out the way I wanted the first time and niether will yours but I did not give up.
