Northern Woods 2012

This past weekend was that time again when the Minnesota Woodworkers Guild comes together for the annual show: Northern Woods Exhibition. I have been aware of it for years but have never participated because I felt I was too busy, or this and that.
I decided to give it a try this year with Cabinet in Chinese Elm which seemed to be well received.
The piece received Best in Show, Peer's Choice, also a privately awarded Paul Lee award which goes to "the best entry that has a playful spirit and sound construction."
I'd be honored to be given any of these, the end out come was a bit of a surprise!

Craig Johnson, classmate and friend, received Best Detail with a piece that I am happily familiar with. Yes, Craig won Best in Show two years ago with another piece I am quite familiar with!

Now that that's over with I'm hoping to get back in my own shop! I'm getting increasingly agitated with the lack of hours I've had to work in the last number of weeks!

Chair photos!

Finally got a chance to do a little shoot with the chair today.
Here are some of the products of said shoot!
Haven't gotten the Sofa back yet though. Hopefully it wont be too long.
