I'm Back
Nov 7th, 2018 at 11:35am
 
Hello everyone.  My name is Doug Calvert and I live in Puget Sound (Seattle) area.  I was a member years ago and then dropped off because life just got in the way of turning.  Things have settled down now and I'm happy to be back at the lathe.  I just bought the Jet 1221VS and so far have been pretty happy with it since I do mostly small turnings.  My wife and I have been "owned" by our 18 month Great Dane named Mina.  She occupies a huge part of our time.  She's our 3rd Dane.  Looking forward to chatting with all of you about turning!

Welcome Back
I know a few things about Danes having spent time with them when I was younger. The one thing, maybe most important thing I learned, is that they have no idea how big they are  Smiley

Oh my gosh.  Yes, that is absolutely true.  The other thing we've learned is owning a Dane means you are never alone.  They attract so much attention.  We do hate the "saddle and horse" comments though.  Gets rather old.  She's learning how to be a "shop dog."  Loves standing next to me and getting showered by shavings.  No, I'm NOT buying her her own Trend Airshield.....

Danes can efficiently clear coffee tables with a single wag. Have fun turning again
