    Box Maker's Special Interest Session at AAW

    On Friday night, June 20, from 7:30 P.M. until 9:30 P.M. there will be a Box Makers Session as part of the Special Interest Night at the AAW Symposium in Richmond. A gathering focused on turned boxes seems particularly appropriate considering the number of box-related demonstrations that will be at this symposium. This Box Makers SIN session will be hosted and moderated by Ed Moore and Mike Stafford.

    As of this date, secured commitments from Mr. Richard Raffan, Mr. Mark St. Leger, Dr. Kip Christensen and Mr. Benoit Averly to participate in a Question & Answer session have been obtained. Mssrs. Raffan, St. Leger and Averly are on the Symposium agenda demonstrating box turning. There are additional persons of note who have made tentative commitments to drop by this Special Interest session and participate as panelists. In addition, Ed Moore insists there will be a surprise Mystery Panelist participating, who Ed refuses to name.

    The agenda will include a Box Makers Exhibition/Instant Gallery for that night only where those choosing to exhibit their efforts may place up to two boxes on display. Those choosing to sell their displayed boxes are welcome to do so. The panelists may display as much of their work as they choose. After an appropriate amount of time spent examining the wide variety of boxes in the Box Makers Instant Gallery, the panel of experts will field questions from the attendees. Please note that the Box Makers Instant Gallery will be in the room assigned for this special session and it is NOT part of the main Instant Gallery which is held elsewhere.

    Please consider reserving that Friday evening for participation in this discussion and display of turned boxes by AAW enthusiasts

    Mike I think I am going to be there on Friday. We are coming down to visit the kids in June and my son for my birthday got me a ticket for the Friday demo's. I definitely want to see Larry Hasiak on hollowing a Norfolk Island Pine. That sounds like a great deal Friday night.

    Stu, I know it is a long way for you to travel but I sure wish you could make it. I think you would have a great time.

    I am buying a new video camera just so I can tape the SIN. Then all I need is someone to teach me how to put it on the web.

    Ya'll come, everyone is welcome!

    Mike, I'd love to be there, trust me, but we are going to Canada for a few days for my parent's 50th, so that will take up any travel I have this year.

    I'll look forward to the video!

    Kip Christensen added to panel!

    I am pleased to announce that I had to modify my original post to include Dr. Kip Christensen to the panel at the Box Maker's SIN at the 2008 AAW Symposium. What a coup!
