Hey it's Turning Tuesday tomorrow.

Ok, I did not know that when the map icon on the calendar was clicked it took you to Franck bros. garage in Kentucky.

Wow! I put in just Johannesen and was sent to Wisconsin. I solved the problem. Put in Franck's address and all is well

Hey, We are back with our Tuesday night Flying wood chips session. Come on down and hear all the great stories.

A few might even be true. Next Tuesday the 21st at 6:30. Bring in what you made and show us what you can do.

 There was great monthly meeting last night at Franck's shop.

Tom Falcone demonstrated how he makes captive rings on a baby rattle.

A real good demo by El Presidente

Advantage Lumber donated some nice wood for our raffle.

Our Tuesday night sessions are really productive. 

I learn a lot just listening to the questions and the insightful answers.

I think that is proper use of the word. I know if it is not I will be told.

Next months meeting will be wednesday August 19 at 6:30 1051 Racimo drive Sarasota.

Don't forget Franck still has prepared wood blanks and much needed tools.

There a Craftsman 12 inch band saw for sale at Franck.

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.


There is available at Franck's Lumber Yard
  some really nice and REALLY BIG

 Norfolk Island Pine.

Check in with Franck for sizes and prices.

                            Help, I need a bigger Lathe,                                                      

If you have a problem, or a question stop in we have solutions and answers.

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.

                                                  This is a nice hat done by Franck Johannsen
                                                 from Norfork Island Pine. It is a feather in his cap!
                                                 I need one in 7 5/8, Franck. Well Done!

Looks Great! We had fun setting it up.

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


                                                                        Only one in the world that is diesel powered.

                                    Russ Fellows is a very accomplished artist in this field
