    I am emerging in my woodturning, & would really like feedback on a few pieces of work now & then. Is there a proper forum for seeking such feedback? By the way, I'm not seeking praise but real insight in how to get better.

    I would say put it in the main forum. Hope you are thick skinned LOL. Most here will be constructive in their opinions.

    .... And, those who aren't will get some time in the cooler to think things over.

    It's an idea worth continued discussion. Whatever future changes we make, I feel that it is important that they convey a feeling of inclusiveness towards all experience levels. For the time being, I agree with Gerald that the Discussion Forum is the appropriate place.

    Also, in order to provide a helpful critique it's important that the person let others know where they are in their woodturning journey in order to receive the most helpful feedback. Lastly, it's always difficult to evaluate a turning when looking at a photo. It's hard to separate the need to take good photographs from the degree of help received.

    I like it. I would be willing to put my pieces up. I don't mind getting other peoples opinions. It's how you learn. I know I'm always right :) but I would like to hear what other think.
