Thread: Hi there!

  1. #1

    Hi there!

    My name is Drew and I'm a 37 year old Paramedic from Ohio. I'm married with two sons and a little girl on the way. My whole family is completely NUTS over wood turning and I can't seem to learn fast enough to teach them everything they want to know.

    We joined this site for tips, tricks and project ideas. So far we are limited to Pens, pencils and key chains but we would like to learn more.

    Thanks for allowing us to join and we look forward to talking to all of you.

    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.

    I'm in Findlay, it's about 50 miles south of Toledo.

    If anyone is close I would LOVE to meet up sometime to see some of the work you have done. I'm limited to pens and key chains at the moment because thats all my current skill level allows for but I'm eager to learn!
    Husband and Daddy is my primary job, the other thing I do is for money.
