>Perhaps the biggest misnomer is the fact this forum is called turning and not "Bowl Turning".
When I visit a turning site(this one included) I sense that anything other than bowls is considered "Newbie stuff"
I have turned 1 and 1/2 bowls (Actually a coffee cup without a handle and a 1/2 a "bowl" )At this point I don't ever intend to make another bowl,too much great work already being done and displayed.
I make few comments here because the subject of pens doesn't come up much and those that are seem to be acrylics.
If you think there isn't much response to certain threads here I wonder what response a candle stick holder maker would receive, what about a stair spindle turner?
I sense snobbery also, not intentional but it is there nonethe less.
