I came to wood turning at the age of 65 and discovered the Chapel Hill Wood Turners and Frank Penta the next year. It was a magical. To start to see myself as an artist and develop confidence in using woodworking tools was an unexpected event at this time in my life. I really appreciate the kind tutoring of the Club Members. It has given me an entirely new way of looking at myself. If I can do it, anyone can.
