I'm a 60 year old banker who dabbles in WW'g. I don't do enough WW'g and hope to acquire enough tools and knowledge so that when I retire, I can have some fun. I do nice work when I do it but procrastination is important to me.

Welcome Aboard Unisaw. Is that the type of tablesaw you have?

Thanks. It’s my “wanna be” TS. I have a grizzly CS. When my skills warrant it I will go to the Unisaw level. I have a large basement workshop, but with steel columns that might make a Unisaw problematic in terms of placement.

Welcome to LumberJocks. Just move the posts. The floor might bounce a little but you can jam a 2X4 up there when your not sawing :>)

Nothing new. Been making pens on my new lathe. No time for the real WW’g.

It’s been a while, I know. I recently completed the carving of a sign for my tennis club. I’ll post pics soon of a before and after. We are fortunate here (central MA) to have a WW guild with a professional carver. His name is Clive Hamilton and he is from Jamaica. He teaches carving and I have worked with him over the summer. Clive is an amazing artist.

Tonight I start a ten-week woodturning class. I have a Jet Mini lathe that I have been using for pens (successfully) but want to turn larger spindles and bowls. I figure I’ll start off correctly rather than blundering my way through.

Later.
