This was Paul Koury's third scrollsawed clock made of wood he acquired from dumpster diving. 3/4 inch birch for shelves. Polyurethane finish on top of an oak stain.  35 hours of work over a period of 3 weeks. This clock was a learning experience for Paul Koury.  KouryMay03_28.jpg (27789 bytes)

 Robert Pulley showed off his basswood and butternut carvings.  "Forest wood" is his favorite choice of wood, and Jim Taylor for hand tools.  Robert uses Dremel tools for a few details (eyes, e.g.).  The colors are artist oils and acrylics for the birds.  He finishes with spray lacquer.

 What was Art Chester giving away?

It wasn't Corian, was it?

Art's neighbor's widow gave away her late husband's collection of jarred hardware.

Not everyone needed free give-away hardware so Hal Clinton grabbed the rest of the jars of hardware in behalf of the Fibromyalgia Association of Houston.
