Wood Show 2011

I am fortunate to live in an area that celebrates craft. In Saskatchewan we have several groups that focus attention on local artists, and here in my hometown there are at least four groups meeting monthly that focus on woodwork. The biggest is the Saskatchewan Woodworkers Guild. They have been active since 1978, and hold meetings, charity events, and shop tours. The Guild has a very strong educational presence with a large library and skill development workshops. The year end Wood Show is a highlight for me. This year I was floored by the quality of the work shown.
