    Hi All.

    I got caught lurking on another thread and thought I'd better come out in the open. I live on the coast of Washington and have been woodworking most of my life and turning (a disease) for about a year and a half. In that year and a half I have spent my life savings, hawked my cars, mortgaged my house and have a sale pending on my oldest daughter (what can I say, I need some more toys) Looking forward to making use of all the experience, expertise and talent on this forum.

    Hey Bob, Welcome. Now stand up say "Hi my name is Bob and I am a turner". We have meetings for folks with your problem. Some here are casual turners but sounds to me like you need the meetings..

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.
