i’m starting woodworking and carving after about a fifteen year absence. kids are grown and gone, larger bills paid off, etc., etc.!
never got to do a whole lot of turning, but i’m really hankering to! i don’t have a lathe yet, i’m looking around at what’s available. man, i’d love to own a one way, but until i hit the lottery, i’ll have to go with something less expensive! but i definitely want a full-size. i have the room for it, so why not? i have a band saw, radial-arm saw, scroll saw, and drill press, so the lathe is next. i’ve seen some pictures of some really neat open segmented bowls and vases. hopefully, that’s the kind of stuff i can eventually do.
i also used to do quite a bit of carving, and am looking to do some more of that too.
anyway, you have a good, very informative site here, and i just had to join in. looking forward to getting to know you people, and i will be asking for your help as i start back into this great hobby!
