I just got approved as a new member today. Looking through past posts...gotta lotta reading to do.

I just got back into woodworking ( turning, scrollsawing, etc) after a LONG hiatus (raising four girls). Now have some free time.

Just turned my first pen. Disaster. Followed up with a few more, getting the hang of it now.

Looking forward to more info and tips on this Forum.

Welcome to the Vortex, Ted.  There is no escape.  Ask questions as they come up, and you will get lots of answers, and some will even be correct.  Wink Wink  Some questions you will find answer for before you knew you had a question by reading prior posts.  We tend to have lots of fun here.

Click on "User CP" at the top and update your profile now that you are a member.

Hi Ted,

And welcome.  As you said, there's lots of information here but feel free to ask questions because someone will know the answer.  Also, we love pictures, lots of pictures.

Welcome Ted  --  May I suggest you enjoy the free time, but you are not done with the 4 ladies -- that is a life sentence.   You may even get some interest from one of them in turning --  and in time you will have the next generation to teach turning to --   

So make the best use of your time to get lots of turnoing practice done and be ready to be a good example.
