It’s very sad to hear of Bob’s passing. He was the first woodturner I met when moving to NH. He told me all about the Granite State Woodturners and our club.

Bob had so much energy and was always trying something different to improve his turning art. Bob was one of the founders and 1st president if the Upper Valley Woodturners. He will be missed by everyone.

Recently, Bob demonstrated a painted rim technique using moon paint. That video is available here. 

The UVW club will be sending a memorial contribution in Bob’s name to the Grantham Community Crisis Fund, PO box 1192, Grantham, NH 03753.

  1. Very surprised and sad to hear of Bob’s passing. I remember seeing him at many a meeting. He was generous with his time demonstrating at Sunapee.
    He indeed will be missed.
