Show and Tell

One of most popular segments at our monthly meetings is the member's Show and Tell where members are encourage to bring their projects and show them to the other members. It is a great learning opportunity; not only for members to show their work and obtain constructive criticism from other members but also for members to see how others go about designing and making a project. There is always something to be learned from a Show and Tell session. It does not have to be just finished projects that are shown. They can be just sketches or mock-ups of projects. Most times members bring their project to the meeting but if it is a large construction then they may just show pictures or drawings.

Examples of some of our members show-and-tell work:

A plant stand made from redwood stained with the tung oil pigments

A beautiful curved desk with a marquetry top

Maple, Birds Eye Maple and Bubinga table

A bent laminated purse made from Maple


Steam bent Mahogany staircase

Ming dynasty style Chinese table
