What age to start Kids turning?

Mark McC
>I was just read an interesting post from Leslie further down who is teaching his/her 12 year old nephew to turn pens. What age have you, or do you think is old enough to begin exposing a kid to turning? Of course many variables at play, maturity, interest,coordination,etc. But it was good story and got me thinking. My son just turned 11 and I think he's at least a year away. I don't turn allot but always thought it would be a good tool to start kids on because it's instant gratification and really illustrates the "You did this with your own hands and imagination" point that PS2 just can't deliver on.
