    Master Turner Program

    I am not sure how a term like "elitist" could even be applied to such a program. As a technical/professional person in my field, I was just thinking that you generally have to have some sort of credentials associated with you to support your work. That said, I wouldn't expect the typical hobbyist to care much about credentials, but it might be of importance to someone that does technical/architectural/functional turning for a living. Kinda like being a machinist, a home improvement contractor or a Microsoft software programmer, etc. It might not be a must, but might give you a little more bargaining power. As a hobbyist, it might just be fun to tackle other projects or develop skills you wouldn't otherwise. I don't know how it would affect an artist, but suspect it wouldn't be as important given the reasons folks buy art. Anyway, I could see a set of standards from a "professional" organization working for all in woodturning from those that care about such a thing to those that don't and just want to be called Mr. How could it hurt if you didn't care? I think it could be a challenge and a lot of fun at a minimum. Thoughts?

    Best regards,
