Hi Jim, Thanks for your feed back, I had hoped experienced turners like yourself would reply. At this point I am not sure what type of turning I will mainly do. I will try a bit of everything to start with, bowls, vases ect. I think at the moment it will be vases. I don’t think at this point I will be going bigger than 24”in length or height, also segmented turning in bowls. At the moment I am viewing lots and lots of videos on Youtube, I have also found a very good site that has some very informative videos on stance and how to use the various cutting tools on the lathe and they are not rushed tutorials….very in depth and informative. I am also looking for a turning club to join and do some courses on turning. So as you can see a long way to go and a lot to learn. I will be practicing on very cheep woods for a while till I can do good wood justice.
Thanks for your input Jim…very much appreciated.
