I'm a woodturner from the Macarthur district, south west outskirts of Sydney, Australia.
I love wood in all it's forms and I don't think there is a wood I don't like. I feel there is a magical property to wood and each and every squar inch has beauty to be revealed. I especially like to use wood I collect my self, whether it is fresh, seasoned, old & weathered or scavenged building material or a hundred year old fence post ! it all has something to offer and it's my job to reveal & present it the best i can. I can not explain the joy and excitement I get as I uncover the different figures, colours, patterns and features.
I am a member and trainer of the Macarthur Woodturners inc. Although I have had no formal training, i'm proud to add my small contribution to keeping this craft alive. .

Since you told me you were a L J, I was looking for you and the list is, as you know, too long to see one by one. Technically I can not welcome you, but I’m realy glad to see you aboard. I enjoy to be one of L J and spend alot of time in front of the computer. No wonder there are many warnings of addiction to this site.
Hope to see some of your fantastic projects in your page, although, I had seen most of them. Sam

Hey, Welcome to LJ`s.
Did you receive my emailed circular to all Macarthur Members re LJ`s ??? I ask because Sam`s message above indicated his difficulty in finding you with the `whiskeyturners` pseudonym where in my `circular I advised using something simple, (like in my case I have simply used my surname) so that members can identify with, and find you. If you look at my Home page, under or in “workshop” you will see a Map showing my Location & full Postal Address. You should add yours to your details, particularly for `visiting` overseas LG members who would like `face-to-face contact`with `locals` for local info and about Australian Timbers etc.
Anyway, pleased to see you on board. There are more & more Australians joining and they have indicated that they are continually keeping a look-out for other Australians.
Regards,
Svaabeck.

Hi Martin, yes I got it as i told you at the meeting i was already a member i just hadn’t filled in my profile. I don’t get a lot of computer time at home so most of me being on line is at work (i’m a truck driver) on my phone which is limited so I mainly just stick to browsing. My user name is one I use on a lot of sites and ebay that along with my whiskeyturner hotmail address would have made it difficult to find me. As for showing where i am, i’m not a great fan of leaving a lot of personal details online but if anybody wanted to get in contact with me that would be most welcome.

Hi,, Steve,
You do not have to put your house number and street name, you do need to nominate the state “NSW”
So `Campbelltown` (post code) New South Wales, Australia. Should be enough for a Map construction, so that other viewers that `click on` the provision for the`world view` of members will see and say “Hey, there is another member in Australia !! They now have `xx` numbers of members etc. It looks like it is Growing !!!
