I started off with a stanley knife and tried my hand at carving a spoon. I got a palm gauge in the local h-ware, some sand paper and a bottle of linseed oil and have been hooked ever since.
I bought a Sheppach lathe in May '11 and I am now also addicted to turning.
I'm a son of a son of a blacksmith but did not really follow the trade. I made a living welding and turning for a while but now I work in an office using a phone and a pc all day. It's interesting, honest work but I allways enjoyed making, fixing or trying to improve things.
I was looking for ideas for carving projects on the net and found this brilliant site last Christmas (Dec. '10).
I have had plenty of ups and downs since that first project and am still enjoying it.
You know when you get a new idea for a project buzzing in your head and you absolutely HAVE to give it a go? I love that. It never goes the way you think it will but thats all part of the fun.
Thanks for getting this far.
