Location: Lakeland, Fl

I'm 29 yrs old, live in Lakeland, Fl. I was hurt in a motorcycle accident 4 yrs ago and I'm in a wheelchair. I was wanting to get into woodworking and have been introduced to pen turning. Figured I'd get on here and see what this site has to offer and see if I can get any opinions on how I could get started in pen turning, but right now my love is turning bowls.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

Welcome to Lumberjocks I hope you enjoy this site as much as I do, I’m sure you will.

Sorry to hear about your accident, I hope everything is going well for you now. Pen turning is not something that I am familiar with, but I know you came to the right place to get some help. Good Luck with it.

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a few months ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…

Thanks Roger and don’t be sorry bout the accident. I was going down a real bad road heading towards jail or death with hard drug and the wrong crowd. The accident might have taken my lower half from being used but I got out of the crowd, got away from the girl I was with, Found GOD again and 3 years later found my wonderful wife. Here I am 4 yrs post injury and I’m loving life. I can do everything everybody else does, just in a different way. It might take me a lil’ longer to do the same thing but it still gets done. By the grace of God I’m still here to talk to you and have fun doing what I do!!

Hey mate, I too am a biker. I am sorry you suffered such injury. Glad to have you here with us. My wife and I suffered injury while in the UK. Sometimes now it still unnerves me when I ride. People with the grit and determination you demonstrate serve to inspire the rest of us. Roz
