Bill presented a contemporary candle stick table he designed and built. The table's top replicates a Mariner's compass using maple and wenge veneer on an MDF substrate. He used cherry for the legs which he then ebonized using the technique discussed by Popular Woodworking entitled How to Ebonize Wood. To ebonize he used vinegar, #0000 steel wood, Quebracho bark powder, and water.
First Place - Terry Dote
Terry built this 1790's era replica Dressing Glass from mahogany and tiger maple. As with most pieces Terry makes, he added string inlay and paterae he created. The piece includes three drawers with curved fronts plus a secret compartment in which he got a few secret items stashed. On the back, he added a vector drawing of his face on the back. As with his table, he did not use sandpaper to create the final surface before finishing with shellac but rather a hand scraper. The finial is one of his first turnings which he covered with gold leaf.
