    Master woodworkers show pictures

    I got up this morning and eased over to Knoxville to have a look at some "masters" and really see how I stack up. Well, all I can say is I'm about where I thought!

    My photography skills are lacking and the woodworking skills are outstanding! I tried to get something for everyone from box making to turning. I didn't think of it until after I left, but I should have gotten pictures of the name plates with each piece so I could give credit. The ones that I remember I'll tell in the pic title. I will tell you the first one is Al Hudson. He's a local boy, at a spry age of around 90. The pictures are an injustice to this thing! As I was gawking he was talking to another fellow who asked if he had ever had it appraised. He told him it had appraised for 60,000 and he had around 700 hours in it. The case is Cuban bees wing mahogany that he said a friend had for years and finally sold it to him. I also included a chest he made, check out the price! Brian Boggs was also there, but I never did get to see him. Here's a couple of his chairs. I'll let you enjoy the rest, again if I could remember who made it I put their name in the picture title.

    Wow John just wow wow wow ......between you and Vaughn today i think i am more than inspired.

    There are some absolutely awsome pieces there. That set of tables with the maple edging hit a button with me, the dung beatle chair such creativity, the monks well just take second look at the cobble stones in that pic, to get it to the point where you think you are seeing them in real life...thats an amazing piece, but the list goes on and on. The first unit you showed man that guys wood just over shadowed his fine work and the piece as a whole. Each one fine works of art and woodworking.

    Thanks a ton for sharing the pics. now i been to two exhibitions today at least.
    cheers

    This reproduction of the Andrew Jackson sugar box was outstanding! I talked to the maker for awhile. He makes his own banding and such. I voted this one for peoples choice. The walnut came from trees that were taken down from the Hermitage, which is Jackson's estate outside Nashville.

    It was inspirational to see these pieces! I also liked being able to see all the different furniture styles in one place. I really liked the Federal stuff. I haven't seen much of that in person. All the banding, inlay, and curves were really neat.

    They had a section set up with different chairs, they had a few of Brian Boggs chairs along with several windsor chairs from Curtis Buchanan and Don Weber.
