I'm a hobbyist woodworker who has been focused on home improvements for the past several years. Cabinets and shelves and fences, etc. As my skills have improved and my equipment has improved (either through aquisition or finally adjusting it correctly - lol), I get closer to building furniture. If I can just finish the kitchen cabinets . . .

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

Would not buy that Delta tool set, because just basic spindle set with tools do not need. Harbor Freight has a red & white handle set just like Delta for less money.

If just thinking about getting into turning recommend getting a few vendor free catalogs and educating yourself on brand names and prices. Think a catalog helps to get give better picture than going to a web site. All it takes is calling toll free number.

http://www,packardwoodworks.com

http://www.woodturnerscatalog,com

Have not received a catalog from Craft Supplies (woodturnerscatalog) since 2011/2012, so not sure if still have one.

There are plenty of other good vendors like Woodcraft, and others but just one or two catalog enough to get an idea on lathes, turning tools, chucks, and other accessories.
