Photo: For Show & Tell, Stan Sherman brought this amazing segmented bowl with a unique decorative ring.
Photo: Elliot Schantz brought a telescoping measurement tool...
Photo: ...and a bowl.
Photo: Ilya Zavorin shows a warped bowl, obviously turned green, from the log on the table...
Photo: ...and wonders how the rest of the log might best be used.
Photo: David Fry was called in at the last moment to demonstrate tonight when the scheduled visitor missed his plane.  Here David shows a partially-turned olive vessel still mounted on a faceplate.
Photo: David, a local professional woodturner, brought a number of samples of his turnings to show what can be made with a bowl gouge.  His turnings are admired by members.
Photo: David shows his article in the Feb. 2003 issue of the prestigious Brit magazine Fine Woodworking.
Photo: David displays a number of his large and lovely bowls and hollow forms...
Photo: ...as Mike Colella shoots pictures from one side...
Photo: ...and Gary Guenther gets the previous shots from the other side.
Photo: Exquisite Vessel by David Fry.  David will show us tonight how he makes these.
Photo: A shallow, end-grain box elder bowl with great pattern and color.
Photo: Alas, poor Yorick...  no...
Photo: ...it's really a very thin and light open-form vessel.
Photo: Nice bowl!
Photo: This large, natural-edge hollow form appears to be some more of that box elder.
Photo: David makes chips fly as he shows how to begin hollowing this vessel with a bowl gouge...
Photo: ...getting in a bit deeper...
Photo: ...and now moving to the side.   Note the confident, delicate grip and light touch with both hands.  No white knuckles here.  Just set the correct angle and let the tool do the cutting -- but watch that bevel angle!  Thanks for a great show tonight, David; and for bailing us out.
