Hello to everyone. My name is Alan Bienlein. I live in Texas with my wife Norma and my two children. I have worked in 4 different cabinet shops in 2 different states but now I just do it as a hobby. I joined this forum because I just bought a lathe and found some very useful information here. I just built my shop 2 years ago and have to thank the wife for fast tracking the project. She is a real tool junkie. If she see's me looking at a tool to long she thinks she needs to buy it for me. What a wonderful woman! Anyway I just wanted to say hello and will be posting pictures of my shop and recent projects shortly.
