    Pleased To Meet You All

    Hi All,

    I just joined Family Woodworking today.

    I have been a woodworker for about 10 years, mostly flat work but some turning too. I like to use hand tools as well, but power is just fine. I can see many friends here already from paths that have crossed elsewhere.

    I am happy to be here and hope to share in teh learning, both ways..


    I am having my hip resurfaced on Aug 28 so I hope to spend some time in recovery reading the forum for a few moths while I heal.

    Take care,
    Jim
    Eh!

    Hi Jim, good to see you here! I have always thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful turnings you produce, especially your Pens. For those that are not familiar with Jim's work..........you will have a real tough time finding more beautiful pens. I am sure he has a few pictures laying around somewhere too!

    Welcome Jim, I look forward to seeing some things from your shop again!

    Hi Jim, welcome ot FW. I am hardly qualified to welcome as I made my first posts just this week after registering with the site more than 8 months ago.

    I can tell you something about Jim's pens as I purchased one from him as a gift. Spectacular work, just spectacular work. Jim is a class act to deal with as well.

    I look forward to seeing more of your beautiful pens although my pocketbook might not stand it .....

    Welcome friend!!!
    I may be getting a little older physically but mentally I'm still tarp as a shack.

    Good to see you here, Jim. I've admired your pens all around the Internet. Now I
    can "ooh" and "ahh" right here at home.

    Welcome aboard!

    And here's to a quick recovery on the hip resurfacing. Are you going with Formica or granite? (Seriously, be well soon.)
