Previous to my wood turning hobby I had tried the usual things like fishing, golf and so on. I visited Taywoods open day in November of 2000 and was immediately hooked. I joined the club in January 2001 and have been a regular attendee since. But for the club I don’t think I would have had the same enthusiasm given that you are mixing with people of the same interests. So if you’re considering trying it try and join a club or organisation where you will get sound advice and encouragement. My only regret is that I didn’t start 40 years ago. It is a hobby I would recommend to young and old alike.
