It is so fun to see how people come to turning and hear about their life's journey.

Thanks for sharing Dirk.

Well guys, when I was asked to write up some information about myself and send some pictures of my turnings I was moved. At first naw then yep and then my thought was well I never actually introduced myself so it only seemed fair that the good folks at Woodturner's Resource should know a little about me. To have this honour of being a featured member is really special!! This Net space place is such a great spot to have some real meaningful interaction. Thank you for the honour.

Dirk,  Nice to hear about you.

I find it interesting each month to read how we are all from different backgrounds but have a commonality of our love for turning and the beauty of wood. smiley=thumbsup.gif

Dirk, it was great to read about you and see more of your work. As some of the others have indicated... it is a wonderful thing to see the diversity of backgrounds and yet the sharing of a common love of wood. The variety of talents is also an awesome thing to behold. Thanks for sharing with us.
