          Do we know the man behind the mask?  It is none other than our Club President, John Gay, who probably was trying to scare us.  But he doesn't need a mask to do that.  John crafted this mask mostly with a band saw and inserted some turqoise stone for adornment.  The briefcase is tombstone shaped to assist when searching for ghosts.  With that mask no ghost worth the sheet it's wearing will appear.

*************************************************************************
If Mark Sweigart gets benched he'll have these two saw horses to ride on. Yippee tie yeahhh.             L1010751.JPG (337714 bytes) L1010768.JPG (87456 bytes)
*************************************************************************
       L1010756.JPG (181342 bytes) L1010752.JPG (175814 bytes) Ron Matherly won't be doing much sitting around if he undertakes building chairs based on these prototypes that he crafted. 
*************************************************************************

          Mo didn't accept the marriage proposal but Curly did.  This "Will You Marry Me" box was crafted by Andy Urban. The "e" in the scripted "me" looks more like a "o" rather than an "e", hence the "mo" pun.  To Andy's delight, his girl friend accepted the offer.

  L1010745.JPG (285921 bytes) L1010757.JPG (175142 bytes) L1010771.JPG (145114 bytes)
*************************************************************************
       L1010727.JPG (223324 bytes) L1010773.JPG (145804 bytes) Steve Wavro claims that this is not an intarsia scarecrow for a woodworker's garden.  The design is from the website of Judy Gale Roberts. Steve points out how he used a Wonder Wheel to accent his work.

*************************************************************************
      L1010742.JPG (197058 bytes) L1010740.JPG (118066 bytes) L1010777.JPG (98837 bytes)  Berto Gherdovich explains how he hand cut with a knife pieces from 80 different kinds of wood to craft these wood photos.  By the way, the ship is not the Titanic.
************************************************************************
A carving of Doc Cotton's wife and daughter grace the lid of his finely crafted red oak box.  It is made from some left over flooring and fresh teak.  Doc's picture is probably engraved on the bottom.    L1010731.JPG (236854 bytes) L1010733.JPG (283637 bytes) L1010780.JPG (132766 bytes)
*************************************************************************
           L1010739.JPG (297416 bytes) L1010738.JPG (353384 bytes) L1010781.JPG (160851 bytes)   Bob Wink demonstrates how to exercise bicep muscles using his exquisitely crafted quilt rack of solid oak.  He'll graduate later to lifting it with quilts hanging -- he'll have to eat a lot of spinach, though.
************************************************************************
Lon Kelley gave a slide show of built in cabinet work he did in his home.      L1010784.JPG (113720 bytes)  L1010759-2.jpg (32250 bytes)
************************************************************************
L1010787.JPG (135381 bytes)   Billy Havins showed slides that explained how to accurately set your miter saw using the tic marks on the angle pointer.  I guess Billy gave us some "pointers"?
************************************************************************
A barn raisin' comes next and this crane will certain help when raising the roof.  Jere Kessler gets the credit for these beautiful toys.  L1010790.JPG (90473 bytes) L1010747.JPG (205887 bytes) L1010749.JPG (354760 bytes)
************************************************************************
L1010793.JPG (122360 bytes) L1010762.JPG (242659 bytes) L1010763.JPG (255389 bytes)  Ridg Gilmer stands by his work and in this case, a Deacon's bench of cypress that he crafted for his daughter.  The seats lifts then closes with a slow-close mechanism.  That way you won't risk getting your hand slapped when you retrieve your favorite bible.

************************************************************************
Clark Kellog shows off some handcarved lettering made of pearwood and oak.  Isn't this what pre-Guttenberg monks used to do in the very old days? L1010795-2.jpg (39519 bytes) L1010802-2.jpg (36797 bytes) L1010795.JPG (63866 bytes)
