Here is my Woodturning!

Two years ago, after eight years of building furniture, I decided to try turning wood on a lathe. I first bought a small Jet just to see if I liked it. I did, but all-too-quickly I discovered that pens and the like were not my thing. I turned a few small bowls and had the itch to go bigger. After much research and discussion with other woodturners I sold the Jet and purchased a NOVA DVR XP complete with outrigger. About my only limitation now is how much I can lift! I love turning and seeing what can be done with different woods.
