Hello All!

A six + year woodworker working from a garage shop and trying unsuccessfully to convince my S.O. that a house with a workshop would be cool.

I like building small tables but think turning bowls would be really awesome. I hope to get a lathe next year if the economy doesn't evaporate my job.

I have a dream that when I retire in 10 to 12 years that I can supplement my income by building and selling artful tables, boxes, and turned objects.

I stumbled on to LumberJocks while looking for tips. Seems like a cool place to hang out!
