Welcome to the Sarasota Woodturners Club
Next Flying Wood chips session on Tuesday April 21 at Franck's shop starting at 6:30.

Several members got answers to their questions and help with tool sharpening

We do have a good time. We may even make  some Kayak paddles. You just never know what will come to the front door.

Wednesday evening Jim Smith did a great demo on doing Pepper and salt mills.

A lot of pepper mill kits were purchased by members.

Jan Johannesen, Franck's wife laid out a nice tray of healthy veggies to eat along side of the donut holes I brought in.

A big Thanks to Jan for all she puts up with including club members and wood chips.

And thanks for the suppers too. (good food) 

Next month's meeting will be May 20 starting at 6:30

Bob Haynes has a Delta  8 inch  Jointer for sale. Contact him if you are interested.
