Photo: Here Duane shows the figure he was trying to save.
Photo: Duane shows a bowl made from a ship railing that he won on the Silent Auction last month.  If you wonder why it has an orange hole in it, ...
Photo: ... it was because this screw was through it for many years.
Photo: Bob Grudberg talks about his spalted cherry natural edge bowl.
Photo: Bob likes the colors in the persimmon, he just doesn't like being up there talking about it, ...
Photo: ... so Stan Wellborn shows off the great color that runs through the bowl.
Photo: Phil Brown really likes his cedar vessel, but said that the Creative Craft Council did not select it to be in the show.
Photo: Phil explained that it was turned endgrain so that you can see the "Rings of Time" as you look in it.  Here he points to the pith strategically placed off to the side to avoid a crack in the bottom.
Photo: Phil talks about the spalted maple end grain vessel that he positioned for maximum spalt!
