Location: Auckland New Zealand

Started wood turning about 15 yrs ago (real on / off) but just retired and now have time to "play" about in my Shed.

I run a Nova 3000 which I had a variable speed fitted to about 6 - 7 years ago. (Upgraded to a DVR Jan 2011, the Nova went on to another Guild member)

I have been a member of the South auckland Woodturners Guild for some years but unfortunately our Wednesday night club night clashes with another commitment so I dont get along too often.We have an interesting web site well worth having a look at (

Sandra & I will be celebrating our 49th wedding aniv' next Jan', have two Daughters who still live in Auckland and like nothing better than taking Mum & the old man out for the night and sharing a few of our delicious NZ wines

Stumbled on this site and can't believe the shared information available. Cheers from Peteg ; New Zealand

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

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself almost a year ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…

A Kiwi apology for not acknowledging your welcome messages, joined up a couple of weeks ago and only now had a chance to have a look at whats been happening. This is an amazing site but I can already understand various comments on “addiction”.
Look fwd to learning a lot from you Guys and maybe post some projects of my own as time goes by.
I retired recently and am now re-introducing myself to my lathe & w/shop (den). I am a keen woodturner and interested in colouring and texturing finishes

I really like this vase, Peter. Very nice proportion and “feel”. I also love your city, and your island. I’m from Vancouver Island which we think of as the mirror NZ north of the Eq.

Good looking hat. Turning and carving go well together. Like to see more.

Ive just had a look at your projects. Frankly I often find turners work a wee bit predictable and bland but yours is anything but; skillfull and elegant
PS have you seen Sam Shakouri’s work here on LJ? You’re almost neighbours. LOL
