I make no bones about it…I’ve been very reluctant to pick up my turning tools for years now. I use to ask “WHY?” every time I saw the lathe in my shop and wondered whether I should just sell it or not? But I knew deep down that I wanted to get over my phobia and dive in someday.
That day has finally come and thanks to Brian Simmons’ classes at the recent Weekend with WOOD conference I feel even more confident than ever.
This year Brian taught several different classes at the first ever event, and I was lucky enough to take two of them. The first was a sharpening turning tools class and the second was a turning fundamentals.
Like I mention in the video, I knew deep down I was doing the right thing with my lathe, but it was like I needed someone to give me permission to continue doing it.
