    Hey Yall!

    Hey guys! I'm new here so I thought I'd introduce myself.
    I'm 18, and apprenticed to Ernie Conover at Conover Workshops in northeastern Ohio.
    I specialize in woodturning, spindle and faceplate. In the past 6 months I've been getting into making furniture. (chairs, small tables, chests, ect.)
    I just recently got engaged, so most of the furniture and turnings I make are for me and the fiance.
    I'm currently building a spring pole lathe, so when it's done you guys will be the first to know. I'll post up some pics.

    I started the first of march. Apprenticeships with Ernie usually go from 6 months to a year. I've been doing it full time till now, but in 2 weeks I'm going to part time so I can get another job to start saving for a down-payment on a house.
