2013 American Association of Woodturners' Symposium is Over

Mike Mahoney demonstrating
Happy to be back home after three full days in Tampa. Some amazing, creative artists there that chose wood as their media. What a great opportunity to connect to folks around the country I have seen on YouTube or read their postings on some woodturning forum. It was gratifying to have a total stranger at the same lunch table tell me how much he enjoyed watching on YouTube my demonstration on turning a winged box. It is a small world of woodturners. 
Here is a link to the Instant Gallery. What a treat to participate in a turning swap with other Wowees (members of the World of Woodturners forum). Participants are paired up by drawing numbers. I swapped a threaded acorn box in exchange for one of Molly Winton's miniature textured hollow forms. What a treat!
This is a picture of Mike Mahoney demonstrating. This shoes the photo frame setup with the plexiglass shield to protect the audience from a thrown bowl.
