I would advise you to go to the AAW website ( and see if there’s a local woodturning club near you. If there is then take in a couple of meetings and get to know the local woodturners. If the club is anything like mine the members will be of trememdous help getting you started. You’ll proably be invited to someones shop where you will get hands on learning experience, probably for free. And you’ll meet a boat load of new friends. Also check out the local vo-tech and see if they have wood turning classes that you could take. You can do all of this with very little cash outlay. You’ll know very soon if you’ve been addicted to woodturning and there is no recovery if you are. :-)
