Thread: From Tucson Az. Hi,

  1. #1

    From Tucson Az. Hi,

    Just wanted to say Hi to all of you. I have been reading your posts and looking at your pictures for over a year now. I have enjoyed every minute of it. I started turning about 3 years ago. At that time all I had was a metal awning in the back yard. Last November I put up a 12 by 16 shed and made that my turning shop. Started with a Jet 1014. That little machine runs great. But like most of you it didn't take long and I wanted bigger. Thats how I got here in the first place. I E mailed Frank and asked him about the Grizzly he was using. Was all set to get one when Tool Nut had there big sale. Ended up with a 1642-2 Jet. In a couple of weeks I will be doing my first craft show. It is at my wifes work they hold one for employees only so very small and just a good way to meet people. Looking forward to reading a lot more posts and waiting for the day my stuff looks as good as yours.
    Dennis

    Glad to see you decided to step out into the open and say hi, Dennis. As you've already learned, there's always room for one more in the Abyss. Congrats on your upcoming show. You think you're hooked on turning now? Wait until you get paid a bit of money for making things you enjoy making.

    Welcome to the Family Dennis!

    If you want to, show us some pics of your workshop, I'm always looking for pics of other guy's workshops, as there are always some good ideas lurking in there somewhere that can be borrowed!

    Cheers!

    I had the best steak in my life in Tucson. It was a place called the Bar M. Probably 15 years ago.
