Hi from Lancaster

Postby nimrod » 05 Nov 2016, 19:05

Hi everyone I'm Robin,
My main interest in turning at the moment is making pens mainly from wood and acrylic, I also make small things like key rings, bottle stoppers etc. I am a bit limited for space at the moment so bigger things are on hold till we move house. Looking forward to becoming involved in WOODHAVEN.

Hi Robin and welcome. There are one or two turners here all with far more skill than I, but I like to have a go. I have just made a few pens to date and not shared them here yet :oops:

If you can get your post count up beyond 3 you will be able to post photos and if you show me yours I'll show you mine ;)


if images are not visible on my posts it is because Photobucket withdrew their free hosting service. I will reload images to the most recent threads in due course. Please drop me a PM if you would like to see anything before then

Hi Robin,

Welcome to the forum.

I started turning with a pen lathe but have now added a large Jet lathe into the shop. I have turned all sorts of stuff, it's very addictive.
My tool kit is almost complete, only a few more to get.

Hello and welcome aboard Robin

I've done a very small amount of turning myself but have a couple of immediate jobs when my workshop is finally finished. Look forward to your contributions.
