Topic tags/keywords: new member introduction

Hello to the group,

I just wanted to introduce myself as a new member to Lumberjocks! My name is Steve Russell and I’ve been a professional woodturner for the last 12 years (Eurowood Werks Woodturning Studio). My studio produces production bowls primarily, but I also turn platters, hollow forms, large wall sculptures and a variety of smaller turned projects. I also do traditional carved sculptural work (organic forms and torsos) in wood.

I frequently test woodturning tools and finishing products in my studio for manufacturers all over the world. I’m a prolific writer on various subjects related to woodturning and I was a regular featured writer for “Woodturning” magazine (London) for several years. Some of you may remember me from The Woodworking Shows, where I demonstrated woodturning techniques for five years.

My website offers a free educational resource library and a new woodturning tips library. If I can help please do not hesitate to contact me, or post a question on the board. Take care and all the best to you and yours!

Nice to meet you Steve. We are looking forward to seeing your work and postings.

It sounds like you would be a great person to start a forum on wood turning. Any tips on tools and techniques would be appreciated by the LJ community.

Hello to the group,

Thanks for the warm welcome, I’m looking forward to participating!

Mike: Thanks, this looks like a great place to hang out… :-)

Karson: Although my main product is bowls, I also love turning pens. My primary lathe is a Oneway 2436, but I also have two small mini lathes, a Jet VS and a Mercury mini. I really like turning on the small mini lathes whenever possible.

Bill: Thanks for the kind words… :-) A turning forum sounds like a great idea and would be a super addition to LJ! :-)
