It all started back in 2006 when I purchased a manual saw mill. The idea was that I could harvest southern yellow pine from my property and my neigbors trees, for free, and build a barn/garage/storage/workshop. This worked out rather well and the barn is completed. What a learning curve. I really enjoy slicing up a log to see whats inside. Throughout this endever friends will show up with different species of trees to be milled for turning blanks, and I end up with some lumber. I sold the mill back in 2010. So now it was time to try refining my woodworking skills. This is were the LJ's wealth of knowledge and inspiration came into play. Thank you all.
Two years ago I was given a old hand-me-down Power Kraft lathe that had been refitted with a variable speed DC motor. I really like turning.
One of these days I might post some of my newer projects, but I find myself in the shop making shavings.
