We had four gatherings in February -February 1st, February 14th (snowstorm so only Zoom), February 15th and February 16th. Below are photos and descriptions of the projects discussed during the Show & Tell portion of the meetings. Also, below are photos of projects sent via email for inclusion into our monthly newsletter.
Bob Santore (via email) presented this red oak natural edge bowl with two views to better show the bowl. He also presented a cherry pencil pot.
Walt Walters, our member in Georgia, presented three projects at the Scrolling SIG meeting. First was his Dolphins at Play, an intarsia piece made from 11 different woods, all natural except the white on the dolphins. The backer board was painted blue to present water behind the dolphins. The Cross with Rose picture is a pattern by Jim Blume with 62 different frets cut by Walt. He cuts multiple and then decides how to frame and back each. This is has a backer board that is painted red. The last project is Kitten in a Tree, a pattern by Charles Hand with 344 different frets. For this one, Walt used a black backer board.
Clarence "Fibber" Magee, one of our newest Scrolling SIG members shared three of his intarsia projects to the February meeting - Trigger Fish, Four Calling Birds and Seven Swans a Calling.
