    New Member from Lexington, SC

    Thanks for allowing me to join. I am a meter of the Palmetto Wood Turners club and we meet at Manntool. I was referred by a friend and a member of the NC Woodworker group.

    I've been turning for about 5 yea s and now have been doing some flat work and getting into some furniture mostly tables. My wife and I have been given the opportunity to build our dream home and I my dream workshop a 24x36 with a 11x36 leanto for wood storage a tractor. I do park my truck under it too.

    I am working on a lathe chisel tool wall cabinet and I like order in my workshop. So I like woodworking might be terrible at it but it is something I like doing. Don't ask me to do plumbing unless you need me to glue up long sticks for the water lines. My handy work in my bathroom required a friend to come a finish.

    i hope to to be an active member here and look forward to seeing your work and comments.

    Tom

    Welcome to the site, Tom. We're glad to have you. We'd love to see some of your work as well.
    I'll gladly tell you how I do something. Just please don't confuse that with the right way to do it, and almost certainly not the only way.

    Welcome Tom, we're glad you're here! Looking forward to hearing more from you, and perhaps pictures of your turnings and your shop; we love pictures!
