Over at the Woodturner's Resource website, they have a contest every year to pick photos of 12 turned pieces to be featured in the WR Calendar. The piece that gets the most votes also gets the cover honors. As in prior years, many nice pieces were submitted, but after the votes were all counted, FW member Chuck Beland took the top honors. (I demand a recount!)
Here's a link to see the calendar photos and to order one if you're interested. The money goes to help support the WR website:
The July photo is a shot of some Michigan Chocolate from Larry Merlau.
Congrats to Chuck for the beautiful piece. Better step up your game, Chuck...all the guys and gals will be gunning for your spot next year.
