    Isaac Cohen stands next to his handcrafted wooden pickup truck.  Calling his truck a "wooden pickup truck" is a little like calling a Lexus a Pinto.  To view more photos of his creation, click here TruckCohenFeb07-31.jpg (322129 bytes)

    John Gay explained why this vase is supported by special holders that he crafted for a neighbor who needed centerpieces for banquet tables.  Without the support and with a bold spray of flowers it can be easily tipped over.  To remove the glass vase he unscrews one leg. A wonderful vase to show off those long stemmed Texas roses, eh, podna? VaseFeb07-20.jpg (249194 bytes) GayFeb07-37.jpg (138891 bytes) VaseFeb07-21.jpg (220577 bytes)

Greg said he soaked the glued up board in water for five minutes to raise the grain and then sanded. Next the black walnut, cherry and hard rock maple finished with mineral oil will greet the edge of a chef's knife.
