Wayne Ison showed a wooden clock from New Zealand that had been carbon dated to be many thousands of years old.

Chuck Taylor showed a box elder bowl that had an exceptional lacquer finish.
Stanley Dunn had a Bradford pear bowl that he turned at the Coffee County Fair.
Geoff Roehm brought two musical instruments, one was a dulcimer which he has refinished many times; he also played it for us. He also brought a ukulele which was made from many exotic woods and also played that instrument as well. The instrument backs are shown here.
Bob Addington brought a collection of 13 bowls, some walnut, maple and apple.

--------------- A simple jig for grooving short dowels -------------
Carefully fitted dowels will trap both air and excess glue when inserted. Unless you provide an escape route, that air or adhesive may prevent you from bringing together the joined pieces. For dowels 1-1/2" to 2" long, build a jig out of scrap wood as thick as the dowel length. Near one end, drill a hole the same diameter as the dowel and then crosscut the scrap so two-thirds of the hole remains as shown right. Insert the dowel in the jig and cut a 1/16" saw kerf 1/16" deep with a bandsaw or scrollsaw. One groove lets air and glue escape.
