Lise Bauman showed her beautifully made candlesticks.

Bob Collins shows a trifecta of bowls he made on his new lathe!

Mike Conner brought in a natural edge bowl where he let the wood form help design the piece and an elegant cherry bowl.

Bob Crowe made this mallet for Matt Overton, the head from a piece of Ipe wood.

Andy DiPietro's shows one of his iconic dyed hollow forms.

Ron Durr shows a few of of his recent turnings from ash, black locust , and willow.

Nate Favors shows a bowl he has made from a black walnut crotch and a vessel from ambrosia maple.

Steve Hillerman presents a bowl with a stone inlay and a stool he recently made.

Bud Hohlfeld really got into spheres after reading Christian Burchard's method for creating spheres. Bob Rosand gives a nice summary of the process on his website. Bud's artistic talent is sure on display with his use of burning, interference colors, guilder's paste and airbrushing.

Speaking of talent, here are a couple of Joyce McCullough's recent pieces, a sculptural vase and a Hogbin style vessel.

President Matt Overton, after talking about his new Ipe mallet, shows his diversity and virtuosity in turning. Jewelry, a hand-carved dish, a hairpin, wine stoppers, salt and pepper shakers, and bracelets.

Andy Postlewaite has rapidly developed  his turning skills as evident with a well executed natural edge bowl of holly and a cherry bowl with a bark inclusion. 

In anticipation of the Renaissance crowd wanting something of the period, Nancy Rourke cranked out several "ale bowls" for the Faire last month. While there were no takers, we were glad she could share them with us.

Linford Sine turned these inside-out ornaments at the Faire. Two are made from yew and aspen while the third is yew and sumac.

Bucks Woodturners is fortunate to have Joe Seltzer as a member- he often brings his recent acquisitions for his collection in to share with the club. This month he brought along some pieces from the Frogwood collaborative that he participated in. 

Joe also brought in a few more recent acquisitions to his collection from various artists. They were a delight to see in person.
