Just a thought here guys,

This thread is just a general who' who, so we can all get to know each other.

Its probably easier for everyone , if you have question on a particular area of wood work, say, woodturning, steambending, carving or whatever. Start a new thread under a heading, and that way everyone can see each seperate topic or project, that they may like to add too.

Otherwise if we start discussing various things in this first thread, it will be like looking for a needle in a hay stack

Yeah! haha, Kadman you should probably delete all the off topic posts myself and Galwaydude18 have been rambling on with. Everyone who goes to the woodcraft who's who will see our ages and that we have split up parents, it's not that kind of who's who I don't think

Galwaydude and Cormie,

Its to early to start wielding a big stick, any way I might get a bit of turning from it, Glad to see you're at home here.

Have basically no wood work experience but I'm really interested in the luthier side of things, especially guitars and bass.

I'm a hobby woodturner, only started really about 9 months or so ago, but have already filled all available shelves and empty spaces in the house with bits and pieces Have a Nova 3000 lathe and am extremely jealous of kadman's Poolewood! I sell a few pieces now and then, but I'm still out of pocket on the deal, but what the hell.

I think your talking about Karl's Poolewood, not mine Alun.
I'm still using my 25 year old Luna.

Have you a pic of your lathe Kadman.

Is it one with a solid 2"/3" bar down the centre or a heavy cast one...

love looking at old machinery --- doing just as good a job as new stuff.

Hi Karl,

It was originally a 2" double box iron frame, for a bench mount setup.
I used to do a lot of natural edge bowls, and was unhappy with the amount of vibration.
So I took of the head and tailstock, and remounted them on a 2M length of 768mm wide universal column. No vibration now ha ha.

I'll organise a picture as soon as I can.
