First Place - Jim Kent
Jim created a new style of segmented bowl. The outside is a separate set of segments - in this case open segmented - while the inside is a standard segmentation. For this bowl, Jim used a combination of cherry and maple for the outside, maple for the inside, and cherry for the bottom. He used Tried & True finish to complete the bowl.
Rod makes peppermills but he was looking for a new and unique idea to sell more. One late evening he thought of this idea, got out of bed and wrote it down. He used his indexing wheel to layout the intersections of the barrel stays after leaving the rings on the barrel while turning. He used an antiquing paint to highlight the burned barrel stays and then finished the entire peppermill with Tung oil.
Second Place - Elaine Negrotto
Elaine presented her interpretation of "Blustery Fall". She first scrolled the image then carved and shaped the leaves to show depth and imply the movement of the leaves. A 1/4" piece of plywood forms the backer which he first stained that added the walking couple. To further enhance the image, Elaine painted the leaves with acrylics. The picture sits inside a black frame she created.
First Place - Robert Love
Robert attended the demonstration and workshop with Rebecca DeGroot in July. This cherry mushroom was made in her workshop but he finished it up this morning. The underside of the mushroom cap is woodburned to emulate what a real mushroom would look like. He applied a final finish of spray lacquer with wax over the top..
