I got it....

Barry Irby
While not ambidextrous I am not totally right handed. I took a class from David Ellsworth on turning hollow forms and bowls. Completely misunderstood his instruction on using his signature gouge. He gently corrected me. Then saw me doing both left and right handed. Came back and said he would give a lot to be able to do that.

I am somewhat dyslexic or dis graphic or something. Sometimes its a curse and sometimes it may be a blessing. When I was a builder I could reverse a set of plans in my head with no trouble and could cut plywood siding from the back without a thought. I seldom shoot, but I shoot long guns left handed and pistols right handed.
