I have been watching and reading the forum for a while but discovered I was still a "New User". My interest is carving and turning, been carving a lot longer than turning, but really like to search the forum for ideas and instruction.
We are glad you found us - too many people lurk a while before commiting to one of the best corners on the web to spend some "sitting around time"
We look forward to seeing some pictures of your work!
Also don't forget the picnic is this Saturday 9/18 - there are door prizes and people bring items for sale and of course the best part is meeting people you have only talked to on line who have similar interests as your own!
