Calabash

I am John Gibson. I live and work in Donegal, Ireland. I am a husband, father and grandfather. I am self-employed as a child care consultant. I provide support and training to foster carers and others who provide alternative care to child abused and neglected. I am a third generation wood turner. My grandfather was a cabinet maker and served his time as a wheelwright. He turned on a hand powered lathe. Power was delivered via a bicycle wheel and gearing system. I am largely self taught but have had lessons from Glenn Lucas and Matt Jones. At the moment I make mostly bowls. Almost all green turned. I turn on a Vicmarc 300 Lathe. Very happy with it. I see no reason to change but may add an outboard facility. I look forward to meeting others here and being part of this group
