This will be the center information page for my woodworking hobbies including all parts of it - turning, carving and carpentry.
Woodturning - I started with woodturning a little less than a year ago, after an unpleasant accident involving an attempt to carve a chess set using a utility knife. I investigated on the internet found many resources, and once I was sure this was something I want to try for myself, I found a teacher here in Israel - Eli Avisera a master woodturner, and did a beginner course. Bought a lathe and equipment and began making shavings and dust....
Carving - since I was a little kid I liked working with wood, I mostly used a knife to do basic whittling (I didn't even know that was the name). Until this day I find this a most relaxing pastime, and something that lays my mind at rest from all its worries.
Carpentry - this is what you'd call a future hobby in the making. Obviously when one starts learning a trade he is attracted to all the different aspects of it - I have yet to build a piece of furniture but I'm getting close to having the required tools for the job. One day I'll build a nice box.
My Shop - this is where I practice my hobby - although some of it (collecting wood, carving) can happen outside, this is the center of all things... as long as no one steals my stuff.
