This is my first posting on this forum.
I’m from the Netherlands, and peeked in Lumberjocks many times.
Recently I saw a new sub forum about woodturning, which I found interesting, so here I am.
I picked up woodturning after my retirement in 2001.
My goal is turning of not only bowls, but a more wider range of projects, like candlesticks, lamps, segmented work, oval turnings, clocks,vases, and so on.
As introduction here a selection of my woodturnings of the past 11 years.
Regards, Ad
