Frank has a collection of rough turned bowls This vessel was found in a Antique store
for sale. The hard part is done. Easy part is left Englewood, FL. It was made by Franck in
a little clean and some sanding. As I said easy. 2001. And still good looking. The vase too.
Different wood from PA and NC. See Franck.

All are welcome. See what we are up to and why we are always wearing a smile
Don't forget Franck still has prepared wood blanks and much needed tools.

I shamelessly promote Franck for all he has done for the Sarasota Woodturners and all that he does to help members and anyone who ask for help.

Stop in on Tuesday night.

Need help with sharpening your tools stop in and get some good help.

We have really smart members in our club and they are great and are willing to help you.

Don't forget Franck has some nice wood for sale.

If you need a tool check with him.

Looks Great! We had fun setting it up.

Tom sent me a picture of his new lathe. All I can say is WOW!

I think he used the new bowl saver for 6 foot bowls.

Only one in the world that is diesel powered.

We are a members of the American Association of Woodturners.

Renewal is still only $40. Mail to
