    Thumbs up Hi from Kansas

    I signed up because my son Jeff Bower has found this to be a really good source of information. I have been turning bowls for about 10 months or so, starting out on a small lathe built from a Shop Notes magazine, and I am hooked. Looking forward to learning from you all

    Hi Wayne,
    Welcome to this place. I am not much of a turner but you have a lot of addicted "round" workers a round here. Any point for you to join in with the enjoyment of the process will really bring out the "juices" of the already hooked and sometimes a "little" "bit" "grinding" lathe folks!!!
    I like wood working but do mostly flat work to pay the bills!
    Welcome and Please join in any chance you get.

    Just remember the motto "Flatworkers Rule"!!!!!!!!!!

    Welcome aboard, Wayne. You'll fit right in. A lot of us turners here are still in the first year or two of the abyss. Heck, some of us even still have a little money left, so you can tell we haven't been at it for real long.

    My mom grew up in Clay Center and Junction City Kansas...does that count?

    Welcome Wayne, I'm from Canada, not Kansas

    Great to have another turner in the mix!

    Hi Wayne, Welcome to the Family! I really want to see pics of the "small lathe built from a Shop Notes magazine". I thoroughly enjoy seeing home made tools and you have piqued my interest.

    or whatever they call themselves.
