The Sarasota Wood turners has a new club secretary, Ron Murphy.


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 wear 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.

help you.

Looks Great! We had fun setting it up.
