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.
The whole 'collection:
Intarsia Eagle - 110 pieces!
The lap desk (other pics posted a while ago):
A 'keepsake' box in cherry:
And a turned potpourri bowl (sorry, larry! )
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...
