I spent most of my working life in the paper manufacturing industry as a technician in the laboratory. When I retired at the age of 65 I took a 3 day beginners course in wood turning. I don't specialise in any particular type of turning at the moment, trying anything from bought wood blanks to any kind of scrap wood I can find or get given.
