I’ve thought about this a lot and I decided that I am not quite ready to work with a lathe yet. I’ve only been at this wood working thing half a year now, and I always want to run before I learn to crawl, lol, so I decided to hold off...

Please forgive me if I do not respond to you, I'm still trying to figure this site out. :)
Just a quick little bit of background on how I got to this point...
I asked for a hand held Dremel for my birthday in April ('08) and started making hair accessories for longhairs, like myself, from oak and poplar planks I bought at HomeDepot. I'd never done any type of woodworking before except a little pyrography, so this carving was completely new to me. It didn't take long before I was hooked. I couldn't stop thinking about it. I was designing pieces in my head when I wasn't able to actually be in my little "shop" with wood in my hands.
I eventually opened up my little shop at etsy.com to share my pieces since I can only use so many.
Wood is my hobby and obsession now. I've gotten into working with some exotics and they're just stunning. I do worry about whether the wood was legitimately obtained and not depleting the rain forests.
Anyway .. I'm just a noob looking to learn more to broaden my woodworking knowledge and abilities.

I really want to learn to turn wood and want to buy a lathe. I don’t think I want a mini lathe, it would work for making hair sticks, but I might want to turn something larger. Any ideas or suggestions would be much appreciated as I really...
