Randleman, NC
Hello everyone, I would like to introduce myself. I am a retired general contractor. I lived and worked in NE Ohio retiring in 2003 after 30+ years in construction.. I have NEVER been a "tradesman" always been in the "Management" side of the business.
I now live in Randleman, North Carolina with my artist wife. I'm new to woodturning, did a few pens, and make a small, three leg stool in a turning class. I hope to do a few other turning's soon. I will have lots of questions, so be ready LOL.
