My name is Moshe Eshel and I love wood turning, this blog will be dedicated to my adventures (failures mostly :-() in the amazing world of wood turning. I started with wood turning a little while after I got married to my beautiful wife almost two years back. My motivation is the story of the next post, but I will say that she encouraged me to spend the money and take a course which I did, and I was hooked!
My wife also encouraged me to spend as much money as I need so I can also have this as a hobby - meaning buy all the needed equipment (and some more :-)), I was reluctant to spend so much money, but she almost forced me to do it - and I am thankful that she succeeded in that.
I live in a small rural village in Israel, which makes the turning even more fun because of the closeness to nature, I just wished I had more time to spend at this! Most of my time is dedicated to my regular work as a software engineer and to my wife Tili and baby daughter Mia (I have a few more blogs dedicated to those parts of my life... So that no one gets mixed up.).
I mostly turn small spindle work (pens, spinning tops, goblets), mostly limited by my small lathe (a JET Mini which I love) - when I feel that I'm good enough, which I'm not, and learned all the necessary skills and correct usage of tools, I might upgrade myself to a bigger lathe.
This blog will be companied with my web albums, where I'll try to have some pictures to display what I'm talking about.
Thank you, enjoy, and I'd love your comments...
