Photo: This evening, we were privileged to host David Ellsworth, one of the world's most influential woodturners.  He invented blind hollowing through a small orifice, and the tools to accomplish it, in the 1970s.  He was a founder of AAW and it's first President.  He has won numerous awards, and his works are in all the major museums and collections.
Photo: What a pleasure and honor to have with us one of the legends of woodturning.
Photo: David kindly agreed to critique this evening's Show & Tell pieces prior to his demo.
