I first turned in 8th grade wood shop with little to no instruction. Then had a small benchtop lathe at home making simple candlesticks and small items in my teens. I’ve always been involved in woodworking as a hobby until moving to the Cape, away from a stressful corporate life. I’ve now worked here for 10 years as a handyman in a busy semiretired position. My first meeting with CCW was about 9 years ago. Though still a novice turner I’m hoping to soon change that after giving up most of my handyman responsibilities this year.
