Any woodturners on this forum?
I've been turning for 2 years and I've just finished a Peppermill. I know, slow, but I've been working up to it. Anyway, I needed to skite to someone.
Anyone? Anyone?

My hat is off to anyone who can change a piece of lumber into a useful and beautiful item!

I CAN turn grain, water, hops and yeast into beer tho! :bgrin

My hat is off to anyone who can turn water grain hops and yeast into beer. It is a tricky process. My Son in law makes homebrew and it's pretty nice.

I used to own a home brew shop, hence “HBS Guy.” Was a good time but arthritis meant I had to shut up shop.

Arthritis is the pits. Pain is debilitating and depressing.

Yup. Trigger was one Monday, standing by the till, customer coming in as the previous customer was leaving. Went on for two hours and at the end I was practically crying with pain. Then the new landlord came in acting like an arrogant pig and I told him I was closing.

Have a steel hip but even so I plan my kitchen to include a big wooden table where I will sit and prepare food plus a dishwasher to wash dishes after the meal—NO STANDING except at the stove top.
