Monthly Archives: March 2016


Only a month left until Saturday Market opens for the year.  I have been in the shop mostly messing around with things that have nothing to do with Market.  Went to Arizona to the Desert Woodturning Roundup and got lots of ideas for new pieces, perhaps some of those ideas will find a way into this year’s work.

I have applied to several shows, but it is too early to know if I will be accepted: Salem, Art in the High Desert, Silverton.  I am still on the fence about Art and the Vineyard this year, maybe it is time to take a year off and just visit it as a customer.  I will be in Corvallis, I have been invited back because I won Best of Media – Wood in 2015.

Currently working on carving and metal inlay, both techniques that require a lot of time, but the results are very satisfying, look for new posts soon to show those off.  It’s probably not too early to start doing Christmas ornaments…
