Yesterday was another busy day. It's amazing how fast the days go here. When you start the workshops at 8:15 and finish around 4 pm, you have a full day in.
Bonnie Kline gave a woodturng demonstartion. She has been doing this for 30 years and made it look so simple and easy. Notice I said "look". I'm sure it's taken her a long time to get to her level. She answered questions while she worked. One of the questions was where did she get her wood. She said she buys it by the ton and it's inexpensive except for the delivery charge. She's ordered over 6 tons of wood.
Notice how she's turning and using a pen to color it.
Here's a top she made in just a few minutes.
She's making these for the upcoming bead week.
She also said she uses wax to protect the colors.
Here's items being carved from the table Bill's working at.
Lunch was supplied by the Birds of a Feather (BOF) Woodcarvers group. Kellie did most of the luncheon. I can't wait for tomorrow because she's doing lasagna for dinner and she's a great cook.
We came back to the rig around 4 and found all of our neighbors have left.
Jim and Deb came over for Happy Hour. We've stayed pretty close to home, since I can't walk all that far.
Do you think Bill's happy with his arms around two women?
I'm not happy with my chuckwagon. I work a little and then go check out all the great talent in the activity center.
Later this afternoon, I went over to Walt Gunn's table and decided to do a lariat bowl. Naturally, I picked an oval one to do which is harder. I also picked a very stiff lariat. I'm having to use clamps to hold it as I don't have enough strength in my hands.
