When it comes to wood turning and woodturners, Captain Eddie was one of the first characters that I learned from online. Just go to youtube and type in his name, you’ll find a ton of Captain Eddie Videos.
I used my first wood lathe around 45 years ago in high school, I know…. that’s a long time ago. I can’t remember much about woodturning from high school but I remember making some candle holders and maybe a lamp …like most high school kids we screwed around more than we tried to learn anything. But I remember that big ole lathe whirling away …..it was a little intimidating!
I got sick of the last 10 years, can’t do the things I did before. Physically I’m a mess, but I thought I might be able to turn a log into a bowl, branch into a lamp and surprisingly the projects are legion. That means many 🙂
I wanted to start a site to share my learning experience. Tons of questions, what should I use, what’s good, what works, why do I have to spend so much money ….Captain Eddie set me straight on that. You really don’t have to spend a ton, just watch!
Here’s a quick Captain Eddie Video to get you started. Want to learn how to get started on a pepper mill…. check this out!
