Rick Morris

Buford, Georgia

Through no fault of my own, I was born at an early age. Over the next 30 years, with great effort, I managed to age more than a quarter of a century. At which point, the woodturning fairy sprinkled me with magic shavings and I bought a very inexpensive lathe from Sears & Roebucks and begin to destroy innocent defenseless  wood. That lasted for a few years before I was distracted by other things. However, by the time I turned 50, I came to my senses, purchased a Jet 1442 and got reacquainted with woodturning. Some years later, I bought a Powermatic 3520b, a lathe that is heavier than me, which is not saying a lot, unfortunately.

And a few years after that, suffering from a lapse of common sense, I started a woodturning channel on YouTube (search for “RickTurns” and subscribe! Please!). With my interest in YouTube videos, it was a logical step to write a few programs (I was a software engineer when I wasn’t turning wood) to suck data out of YouTube and build a database of woodturning videos (over 18,000 woodturning videos, would you believe! And growing by several hundred every month). That database is available right here on More Woodturning. We are talking major league excitement here! Check it out in the News section!
