Hi, I´m new here.

I´m from Germany and live here in Orlando, FL, since April this year.
My husband is doing woodturning since we have been here.

I would like to learn working with wood: to build a big bookcase, a table, a writing desk, ....
When I was a child my father taught me the basic use of saw, file, plane, etc.

Does everyone know someone in this area here around Orlando who could help me and teach me?

Thank you very much,

Check out your local Junior College or Adult Education center, they usualy have some basic classes. That’s about the best help I can give you from here in Calif.

I second Kunk’s thoughts, though I am a little closer. Jensen Beach is about 100 miles to the southeast of you. Still a little far, but you are already at the right place to learn, LJ’s.
