Well, one of my Wood's student entered his lathe project in the 4H Woods project division. It was a canister set (3) made of walnut with lids, won Overall Grand Champion in the Woods division!!!!
My youngest daughter last year entered two slimline pens in Basic Crafts, won Overall Grand Champion in that division. This year she made and entered a Cigar pen using a scrap piece of wood that I haven't id'ed yet, and a Rollerball using yellowheart wood. Grand Champion overall again, and the judge's husband said he would look for them at the State Fair while judging that division. Hmmmm.
Yep, as Larry would say, "purty proud 'deed!!".
