Well it’s that time of year again. Time to get organized and set new goals for the year ahead. I would encourage you to think about your own turning goals. Consider stretching your turning horizons and join your local turning club. If you are already a member, volunteer to conduct a demo or bring a finished piece for your club’s show and tell. You can’t cross an ocean with one foot on the dock!
My turning goals for 2013 are as follows:
1. Demonstrate my spring pole lathe for my club.
2. Attend the Southwest Association of Woodturning Symposium.
3. Make another stool.
4. Visit Berdoll Sawmill & Furniture Co. A mill east of Austin that handles extremely large trees. For example rare 30”+ diameter mesquite trees!
5. Teach my 11 year old son some basic turning skills.
