Just joined the wonderful world of wood turning after years of wanting to do it.

I'm a police officer and martial artist and I guess my primary interest is turning wood batons and other weapons for the martial group I'm in.  It is fun and creative so far but I'm somewhere between extremely dangerous and novice. Smiley

Is that in turning or Martial Arts?   Grin Grin Grin one is supposed to dangerous for your safety, the other you try to avoid danger for your safety.  Cheesy Cheesy

Lots of good advice to be had here, both on how to turn and how to do so without hurting yourself.
