Artistry in Wood - Dayton, Oh (-ish) Oct 14-15

I get to this show every few years, and it's everything they say it is.   And now we've both moved and it's about 7 miles away instead of 70.  If you're anywhere nearby, don't miss it.  It's a lot of carvers, and the rest are turners, woodworkers of all sorts and vendors.  I'll be there Sunday.

P.S. Yesterday I sat in on some taping of Popular Woodworking's I Can Do That video series.   Had a great time as "the studio audience" and talking to Chad Stanton and David Thiel who's been with PopWood for years. </drive by gloat>

Went up today.   Sorry, forgot my camera - hectic weekend.

 

Lots of carvers, a few turners, and fewer furniture makers.  Handful of vendors of wood and knives. In addition to the usual caricature carvers, the latest fad seems to be carving Harry Potter-ish towers out of cottonwood bark.  One exhibitor called them "Whimsical carving."   The other fad seems to be sale of "rough outs" that appeared to be CNC shaped wood ready for detail carving.  Judy Gale Roberts and Wayne Barton (if those names mean anything to you) were both there.   Missed Scott Phillips who did a "New Tools" presentation yesterday.

The last time I went the turners were in full force, especially those who had lots of pens to sell. I'm guessing that Judy and Wayne are carvers, may be why I'm not familiar with those names. I'll reserve commenting on Scott since I'm not his biggest fan. Still sounds like it was a worthwhile trip for you, especially given it was a close one. Any vendors there?

Judy is known for Intarsia https://intarsia.com/

 

Wayne is known for chip carving https://chipcarving.com/

 

There were a few vendors there, but I'm not all that interested in Dremel burrs, carving knives or blocks of basswood or cottonwood bark.  "Should be like a person's dog, I can admire it but not be expected to take it home with me."

 

About the only carving I do is Swedish wood spoons a la Wille Sundqvist.  All you need for that is a knife and a gouge, and optionally an axe. https://www.amazon.com/Swedish-Carving-Techniques-Fine-Woodworking/dp/1627106731
