Monthly General Meetings

Meetings are held at Advantage Lumber on the 3rd Wednesday of each month from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm. The address is 7524 Commerce Place, Sarasota, FL, 34243. Turning stock and other supplies are available for purchase. Meetings are open to the general public.

The club owes a debt of gratitude to Advantage Lumber for hosting our meetings. Their facility is a veritable candy store for woodturners and woodworkers of all stripes. Discounts and sale specials are often granted to club members and your patronage is encouraged.

Informal Weekly Meetings

On Tuesday evenings of every week, other than the week of the monthly general meeting, a more informal meeting is held at the shop of professional turner, Franck Johannesen. His shop is located at 1051 Racimo Drive in Sarasota. Approximately every second week a short demonstration is put on by a club member and usually relates to a topic that members have expressed a recent interest in. This is preceded by a short Show & Tell session as well as a discussion of club business. Evenings where there is no demo a more extensive Show & Tell session is held allowing more input from members.

While these meetings are held from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm, volunteers arrive as early as mid morning to help out with various tasks. The most important of these is the sawing and preparation of turning stock from wood acquired from  local arborists and other sources. Others are involved in organizing the shop in preparation for the meeting. A fun time is usually had by all!
