Photo: ...and he also showed this sycamore bowl, and another pair in maple.
Photo: Bill Autry completed this pair of ebonized african utile (sipo) multiaxis candle sticks that he showed in pieces last month, based on inspiration from seeing our Barbara Dill demo. They are turned with opposing symmetries.
Photo: Russ Iler brought this lidded box in yew.
Photo: Our resident wood artist, Ed Karch, has begun a new series of pieces containing stones. Here is one of them. What an idea!
Photo: Ed also completed two turned and carved cherry basketweave pieces begun in his CAW workshop with J. Paul Fennell. Such patience...
Photo: ...and he's still into piercing too, as evidenced by this turned, carved, and pierced pecan vessel.
Photo: Clif Poodry came home from the Montgomery County Fair with a Senior Division Grand Champion ribbon for his walnut pot.
Photo: He also brought this koa plate...
