    A few details about myself.
    Hi Everybody,
    I am from the big city of Laurinburg NC. I make flutes as a hobby. I for the most part bore mine on the lathe using a homemade gundril setup I learned how to make from another full time maker online. Some makers use just the router to make theirs but have to rout 2 pieces and glue them together. That works Ive done that too. . I have used the router a lot in making flutes and still do sometimes. Plus I have been using a router for yrs. I love all aspects of woodworking but primarily love using the router and lathe and working on stuff in the round...I want to learn more about making bowls on the lathe and then using my router and indexing ability of the lathe to cut grooves etc on the bowls but that is a ways down the road. I know I will learn a lot here and hope to contribute some too!
    I have been married for 32 yrs and have 2 sons and 2 grandsons
    Thanks in advance for all the help!!
    Laurinburg NC 28352
