The 2014 AFWW Excellence in Woodworking Show was a huge success with attendance and entries up from last year.
Fifty-four projects were entered, including our first ever full-scale, working boat. The entries were judged in the following categories: Furniture, Boxes, Art, Toys, Functional Accessories, Turnings-Segmented, Turnings-Facework, Intarsia, Scroll Saw and Other.
Here is a quick recap of the events during the show. Matt Vredenburg demonstrated a variety of techniques using hand tools to build a three-legged milking stool. John Armstrong demonstrated an interesting technique for cutting veneer to create three-dimensional images, which he then applied to a box lid.
The Arizona Woodturners Association drew a crowd with their bowl turning demonstration. To learn more about the turners club, click on this link.
Thank you to everyone who worked on a project, and most of all had the courage to enter your piece in the show. This event allows your woodworking skills to be judged by other craftsmen, and in turn helps you to improve your craft.
