SHOW and TELL PROJECTS

         This treasure chest of oak was crafted by John Gay as something in which to carry his handiwork. The idea being that you want your carrying case to be as attractive as your item itself.  

John Gay then prepares to tell club members a story using his hand crafted book binding.  The doors are of different styles and woods with some purchased hardware and some hand made hardware. John made good use of stone paint

Gary Rowen shows club members a bed made of red maple that he made for his 9-year-old granddaughter's American Girl doll.  Gary used mortise and tenon joinery then finished it with several coats of shellac over a fruitwood stain.            L1010054.JPG (179938 bytes)  L1010056.JPG (183808 bytes) L1010075.JPG (103271 bytes)
