Here are some pictures from our Fall 2016 wood show which is part of the ARTS &CRAFT SHOW held every fall .
I have been off for a while so this is a bit late but still should be interesting .
Our Guild did a pretty good show that was well attended and we also got a lot of interest in our guild activities which should lead to new and especially younger male and female wood workers to join.
We had the public vote and choose the winner and 2nd and 3rd of all the displays and guess what my display was chosen the winner for the second time which I much appreciate but there where other displays which I thought were also well in the running which is good and I hope next year we will see more new members and displays to show they’re work which in my opinion is the main objective and will carry the guild into the future .

My display

A display next to mine of CNC work which attracted a lot of interest .

This is an interesting chair/stool made from construction lumber made from an magazine article which the fellow found tucked in an old magazine .One of my favorites .

Some nice turnings and pens .

Some doll size furniture .!

A wheelwright doing some demonstration and a very unique plier he made to quickly tighten down the wheel hub .

A cedar strip canoe and paddles one of many this member has built and he also makes violins .

And more pictures of different displays with some interesting items .
Something for every age and interest group.
I guess that’s enough and if you have any questions let me know I be glad to answer .

looks like a great little show. That seems like a good idea to generate interest and attract new members. I’m going to mention it to the woodworking club I belong to.

I like when a group of woodworking people get together and display their pride. That’s a beautiful display of talent.
Congrats on your win. Hope you are teaching those young guys (like me ) your secrets.
