Welcome! suggest you go to the TPT section and watch videos that are there. They've been approved for safety and content. Also, find a local club and get mentored before spending a LOT of money. When you get ready to purchase item, I would suggest you ask about the decision here before ordering, collectively, we've bought almost everything available and can give you direction.

Turning is fun and results are quick to see. HAVE FUN learning to turn!!

Lots of info here and friendly resources.

Everyday liberating nice things from ordinary chunks of wood---and I like gnarly wood, the outcome is nearly always better than the start.
