    Fair results

    The Canfield (Ohio) fair is now over, and I reclaimed my entries this morning. Didn't do too bad - one first, one second, and two thirds out of four entries. Had some really good competition this year.

    For the past several years, I've been pestering the Fair Board to add a woodturning category, telling them they were missing a big segment of woodworkers by not having one. Since they finally added one, I figured I'd better turn something just to be sure they had at least one entry. I needn't have worried - they had eight other entries, so I've been vindicated - it's a worthwhile category. Having said/done that, I doubt I'll ever enter the turning category again...

    I wouldn't call those fair results; I'd call them excellent results

    Good luck in all your endeavours!
    Cheers,

    Dangit! Roger beat me to the punchline.

    Well done on all counts, Jim. Nice work, and kudos on getting the new category started. The intarsia eagle and the turned potpourri bowl were both surprises...both are styles of woodworking that I don't typically think of you doing.

    Both styles/techniques are 'firsts' for me. Might well both be 'lasts,' too! The intarsia does use up a lot of scraps, though. As for the bowl, while I recognize that a lot of folks love their spinny stuff, it just ain't my cup of tea. I can (sorta) do it, but I don't find it as enjoyable as I do other things.

    You did a good thing for woodturners.
    You did a good thing for yourself---winning, that is.

    Enjoy,
