Here is My Woodturning!

I turned my first bowl in 7th grade woodshop. I turned my second bowl 20 years ago in a woodturning class at a local tool supply store. I got my first lathe for Christmas in 2016 and turned my third bowl in early January last year and have been turning steadily ever since.

I learned turning skills and techniques from the numerous YouTube channels finding out quickly there are many ways to turn a bowl. I soon joined the Gulf Coast Woodturners Association and have learned many techniques at the monthly meeting demonstrations and annual retreat and have made many new friends.

So far in my short tenure as a turner, I have turned mostly bowls, but now I am starting to branch out into pepper mills and wine glass stems. I just purchased a pressure pot and plan to experiment with wood/resin casting.
