Photo: Richard Webster shows his large bowl with a nice lip and a great spalted detail.

Photo: Tim Aley shows his walnut plate.
Photo: Gary Guenther shows a piece that he started in his class with Mark Gardner.  He decided he didn't want to carve it, and wanted to make it different from Mark's form, so ...
Photo: ... he put a pedestal base on it and made it an urn.
Photo: Elliot Shantz read the latest issue of Woodturning Design and  decided to make earrings from the article.
Photo: Elliot shows the laminated blank he made and then cut on the bias.
Photo: Ed Karch shows the finished bowl that he brought in for Jigs and Tools demo last month.
