Location: South Louisiana

I retired February, 2008, after 44 years in higher education research and administration. Since the early 1960's I have dabbled in various woodworking, boat building, furniture design and construction, cabinets, and such. For the past 15 years I have spent spare time studying with some of the best wood carvers around (they think so and I tend to agree). And, I have been able to find homes for many of my carvings. Christmas 2009 my spousal unit gave me a small lathe. I have no idea how to use it but I am confident after reading some Lumberjock profiles that this is one good source to learn how to use my new tool. I would like to be able to combine my carving and turning to produce new "stuff". I love to learn.

-- Jim, South Louisiana,

Yes Jim, I know basement in New Orleans is kind of an oxymoron, but it is what it is. Actually it is a ground floor apartment in my house that never got fixed up after the storm. It is mostly the landlords storage now, but I have carved out my own little slice of heaven down there for myself. Where in South Louisiana are you?
