    Arizona Greetings

    Howdy,
    My name is Rich Boehlke (pronounced Bell-Key). I live in Pinetop Arizona, about 190 miles east/northeast of Phoenix, altitude 7000 feet above sea level. I retired in 2005 after 32 years from IBM and moved to the mountains from Chandler AZ.

    One of the items on my bucket list is to become a skilled wood turner. I am also interested in furniture building.

    I'm glad to have found FWW and have already lurked my way through a lot of very useful information. Thanks to all those who contribute to making this forum such a valuable resource. One big problem: the day is limited to a mere 24 hours! How will I ever catch up?

    Howdy Rich! I passed through your area 4 years ago this coming Sunday ... on a motorcycle that I bought from a guy in Globe ... after flying from Salt Lake City to Phoenix to buy it. I got to take a few cool photos during the two-day ride home, including some in Salt River Canyon. Check out the trip pages [HERE] if you're interested.

    Maybe someday I'll come back through when there's no snow on the ground (and no monster forest fires burning!).

    Welcome to "the family"!

    We like pictures, of your shop, your lathe, and such, it you have the time, please share some with us.

    Cheers!
