Misadventures in wood turning

So we are in March 2016 and the time has come to begin a new woodworking related hobby I have chosen wood turning.

This section will document my misadventures in wood turning from photos of my first pieces to eventually videos to detail my journey, I am sure I will make many many mistakes but a log of what I am / have been doing should help me get better and if anyone else gets a kick out of my misadventures then all the better.
