    Smile Hello from Oregon

    I like all of the positive blogging here at Family Woodworking, it sounds like a good place to hangout. Hi everyone, I signed up a few weeks ago and really enjoy seeng everyones project and shop pictures. I'm into turning mostly and those occasional honey do list projects, but try to do more turning. I started turning in High School, then took a very long break (about 35 years), untill about 4 years ago when I bought a Rikon Mini Lathe. I started turning small bowls and pens, I recently aquired a Jet 1442 lathe to move on larger pieces of wood. So Hello again from Oregon.

    Hey Jim welcome to the Family. I too have the Rikon mini. My cousins own all the McDonalds around Salem so if ya ever eat there your putting money in their pockets.

    Welcome Jim
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.
