Officer Biographies

Vice President Ron Bishop

Ron is a Chemical Engineer who retired from PPG Industries after 45 years in manufacturing management of coatings for automotive, consumer, industrial and container coatings (Beer Cans!) customers. Ron began wood turning in Atlanta in 1986 and has had the opportunity to meet and learn from fellow turners such as John Jordan, David Ellsworth, Rudy Osolnik, Ray Key, Liam O’Neill and others. Ron has no particular specialty and does enjoy making and embellishing his creations, but doesn’t care to make multiples of the same thing. His saw dust and chips include many varieties of wood, but he does enjoy turning cherry the best. He was a member of Turners Anonymous in Pittsburgh for 20+ years before moving to Spotsylvania and joining the Richmond Woodturners. He has been an AAW member since 1992. He was “invited” to become an officer of Richmond Woodturners as the Program Manager and is grateful for the invitation and pleased to contribute to the growth, enjoyment and development of our members. Woodturners are always willing to help, share and enjoy the creations of other turners.
