    There was a display of the products of the recent Jimmy Clewes workshops on hand by our members. It turned out to be a great show and tell evening. I have selected a couple of pieces, not necessarily the best, but it was a hectic evening with so much work shown it got to be hard to see who did the work. First, the Jimmy Clewes products.

A. few from this bunch: Wendell White showed that he isn’t just a pretty face of Corian, but a skilled selector and hewer of wood with his demo bowl that Jimmy C. called “Google Earth” for the rim effect. Tom Canfield showed us a nice turn of the block with his box elder three cornered box. Unnamed did a great square-square bowl with nicely dressed top and well done “gilding” of the center.

The “Ordinary” show-and-tell stuff included Ken Morton’s orange agate box with nicely chased threads. Ken also got a second billing for his finishing (finally) his wife’s four Box Elder bowls that James Johnson cored and turned from a single smashing block. James Johnson brought a great lacquered and dyed ash bowl.

Rick Webster showed an Osage orange bowl with a giant gap in the side. It looked like a natural yarn bowl. Tom Whiting brought a crotch hollow form of mesquite and turquoise. George Taylor Showed a great sapele bowl with a faux marble painted rim. The “Ordinary” show-and-tell stuff included Ken Morton’s orange agate box with nicely chased threads.
