Will Pate did an excellent demonstration for us on inside-out ornaments at the July meeting. You missed a treat if you werenít at the meeting. Will turned an ornament for us during his demo. If you would like to turn an ornament of this design, read the article that Will followed for his first in the Winter 2004 issue of Woodturning Design Magazine.  . . . more of Willís handiwork. Have you started turning your ornaments yet? Christmas is coming.

Not only does Nevin Newton turn beautiful segmented vessels, but he is also consistent. . . two every meeting. We had a visitor at the July meeting. This nice shallow bowl of Sycamore and Padauk was turned by Roy Radscheveit from Oklahoma.

Ray Morgan is known for his pens and he uses a lot of exotic woods. These three were turned (from the top) from Kingswood, African Blackwood and Buckeye burl.

Bill Cleage turns beautiful canes. This one is made of Hickory. It has a Cocobolo collar and he made the handle from Magnolia from a tree that grew in his front yard. It came out beautiful. . . as they all do. These two bowls were turned by Earl Lee Taylor. The one on the left was turned from Sycamore and the one on the right from Bradford Pear. Both pieces are really nice. Apparently we have a new member whose name has not yet been added to the membership list. This beautiful little hurricane lamp was turned and signed by someone named "Bartlett".

Jerry Osmundson chose Sycamore and spalted Hackberry for these two nice little boxes. Notice how well the spalt lines match up, and when you pull the lid off they make that nice little "plunk" noise. Beautiful.


 This bird house ornament was not signed. Itís a great little ornament made of Oak but no one seemed to know the author. Because it is so nice, I just had to include it.

Thanks to James Armstrong for the pictures and description
