Oh boy, an arborist in the group!  Maybe you can help answer the occasional tree id question or other growth related question. 

So.....what makes a burl?   Grin

Welcome James,  next thing you know everyone will be asking you to send them free wood to turn.  Hmmmm,  That might save you disposal fees, just charge postage........ Grin

As you may have noticed, we don't take much beyond turning very seriously, least of ourselves.  Enjoy.

Welcome James,

I'm sure your knowledge base will be requested of a few times around here. Wink  Welcome to the vortex, let us know where we can help.  For a second I got all excited about your location and then remembered LA is probably Louisiana.  Sad

Welcome to the darkside.  Turning will cause you to do some strange things.  Why, just last week I found myself in Orlando when I live in Kentucky.  Don't remember how that happened.  Had a bunch of fun and got home with a bunch of pretty wood though.  Enjoy the vortex and feel free to jump right in.   8)

Hi
I've been reading here for a while and I think this seems to be a friendly, helpful bunch so I guess I'll jump in too. I'm a fulltime firefighter in Southern Ontario with a woodworking obsession.
I've been turning off and on for 15 years, but recenty decided to take the big step up from a little beaver (rockwell) to the "General" 260. So I guess I'm committed now (or should be) I'm waiting impatiently for the adapter to fit the stronghold chuck, and I have to finish the canoe before I start turning. Too many projects, too little time!
thanx in advance for your expertise Wink

You're on the right track.  Lathe, tools, lesson or two (maybe three), chuck and adaptor, and let us never forget, Woodturner's Resource.  This is the forth home (wife/family 1, office 2, shop/studio 3, in front of computer with our virtual family 4).  Some may change that around a bit, but what ever your arrangement, it's a pretty good place to hangout when we're not turning.  Enjoy and jump on in.   8)

Welcome aboard Brad, have fun & be safe, both with fighting the fires and turning.  We love having new minds to twist into the vortex of turning Smiley

I just found this thread so I guess I should introduce myself.

My name is Ron Sardo, I have a lovely wife and two beautiful teenage daughters, (so now you know why my hair is turning gray.)

I've been a woodworker for awhile and started turning in August 03. Funny thing is my wife purchased the lathe for me for christmas and it took me 8 months before I decided to assemble it. I really had no interest in turning. 

Boy! Was I Wrong! I can't seem to get enough time to turn!

I like turning a variety of things from bowls to pens, from hollow forms to boxes and lately segmented forms.
