Hello from SC
Jan 12th, 2016 at 2:29pm
 
Hello, I'm Kevin from Greenville, SC.  I received a Delta lathe for free and used it to turn a half dozen bowls and pens as gifts and now I can't stop thinking about all the beautiful things I could make! 

Currently, I'm trying to get my hands on as much turning stock as possible.  I really want to cut my own blanks from logs or firewood, to learn more about wood and to create something useful from inexpensive local materials.

Still figuring things out in my tiny shop (1 car garage, with a car in it) and could use all the help I can get.  Hopefully, I will figure out how to sharpen my bowl gouge before its too short to use!

Welcome.  Find a local chapter of the American Assoc Woodturners.  There are 4 in SC.  Almost all of them have mentor programs to help with all phases of woodturning.
