Hello everyone. I'm a newbie to woodturning. I started in December 06' and haven't been able to stop. I bought two books,Theone about Ray Allen and Malcolm Tibbetts. So the first thing I did was segmented turning. Here are a few pics of pieces I've done in my long illustrious turning career. ( 3 months) I hope you enjoy and critics are welcome.

How dare you put such rubbish on this forum. :((:((:~:~

Only kidding :lb: you obviously have talent in woodworking and now spreading your wings to turning and I must say taking to it like a duck to water. I look forward to see what you will do in your spare time next week.:2tsup::2tsup:

Cheers Justin:drink2:

My next attempt will be 20" tall and 12" in diameter. I'm going to build it in 3 pieces then glue it together. I'm going to need a steady. I was refered to a company but it's not in the budget yet. This one may take a while but I'll keep you all posted. Thanks again for all the compliments.
