New from MO
Dec 18th, 2009 at 2:29pm
 
I've been doing woodworking projects for 30+ years, but fairly new to turning.  Bought a Delta "Midi Lathe" a few years ago & have turned a few basics; some mallets, ornaments, & a couple of 2" x 6" Walnut bowls.  My tools are pretty basic, turning experience is low!  Looking for useful beginner's projects & tips to go along with them. 

I'm a retired firefighter, into gardening & collecting older John Deere garden tractors & equipment  My woodworking is pretty much a "Winter" hobby.  ~~  Lowell
