    Does this conference include woodturning? I love to get out in the shop and play around with my lathe from time to time. Love to hear some project ideas though! I've made my share of pens and also made some yarn/thread spindles but really haven't done a lot. My few attempts at bowls was quite comicle!

    Please DO post about anything woodworking related! I would love to hear your stories.

    Well I did some woodworking in Ag/Shop back in high school back in the 80's but only recently got an old lathe and started dong some stuff. I'm still learning at the moment! I've done a few pen kits and am getting somewhat decent with those but I'm still struggling with the big stuff. I tend to get in a hurry sometimes I guess and go too fast.

    In 1974, my wife and purchased a home where the seller left a wood lathe, table saw
    and other equipment in the basement. I took an adult education woodworking class, but
    never really made anything. I applaud those that can.

    Wow that sounds like a nice housewarming gift! It does take a bit of

    I grabbed one on sale before Christmas and have been learning and having a blast at making things. There are items it cannot do (etch Stainless Steel, .etc) without painting the surface black or something. But then, you are still only etching the paint off as the 20W isn't enough to engrave the steel itself. It is SUPPOSED to make various colors on Titanium, though, by using varying speeds and power settings. But, I haven't located a cheap enough piece to play around.

    I had been wanting a GlowForge for years, but just couldn't pay the $5,000USD for the Pro version. That one would etch metal, but the machine is HUGE. Then I started looking into build-one-at-home kits, and started seeing the smaller ones for sale. I ended up getting the Longer Ray 5 20W for under $500 on sale and it came with the air assist pump. I SHOULD have gotten the kit that had the Rotary Tool instead and bought the air pump myself.

    I have been etching Slate (which is the easiest by far), Leather (still working on getting those settings proper), Plastic Binders (mind the nasty smell! I setup the engraver on top of my stove as it has a vent that goes outside and works perfectly in the Winter months!), Metal Business Cards (I made some very neat looking ones with my GMRS Radio Call Sign, and had a few HAMs ask me to make them some as well with their HAM and GMRS), and Basswood (able to cut or apply "shadowing" to it to turn out nicely).

    I keep forgetting to upload images to my Hobby Site, but have been posting them within the few FB groups I am part of there.
