Hi everyone! My buddy Grizzz has introduced me to your site and to the world of woodworking, specially turning. Grizz has built some awesome things with all of his hand and power tools and has convinced me that I can create some beautiful things with turning. I'm just starting out but can't wait to jump in with both feet. I went to a Rockler Woodworking store near me and took a class on pen turning. I'm hooked! So much so that when the Rockler store here in South Portland, Maine hosted a demonstration on Robert Sorby tools I went and ended up buying a few chisels to get started with. The manager, Molly was extremely helpful and also encouraging, so here I am. I've been visiting your site for a little while enjoying reading and seeing what others have created. Some day soon when I get a digital camera I'll take a pic of my first and only pen. I'm glad to be a part of this site.
