I started woodturning in 2013 following my retirement from the Fire Service. My favorite pieces to turn include utilitarian items such as ice cream scoops, small bowls, bottle stoppers, screwdrivers and lots of pens. Lately, it's been fun to step out of my comfort zone and try new methods and techniques. Interested in trying woodturning? Ask a friend to let you give their lathe a spin and see if you like it.
