Location: Greensboro, NC

I am new to wood working. I have always wanted to give it a try so I just jumped in. I built a 16 x 20 Workshop out back of my place and started getting my tools. I have a Jet Midi Lathe and a Jet full size table saw ( taking up half my shop) I bought a 14 inch Rikon bandsaw and a Rikon drill press. I have started turning pens and Love it . I am hoping to get into making some small furniture in the future

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

Well I havent been able to do alot lately . I did make a small set of turned mallets out of some scrap I had. they work good but they are alittle on the small side. I am also working on a chair for my oldest son . As soon as I can find the lumber I want I am going to try and make a kitchen table for my wife . If I get it I will post pics as I go .
