NWA Showcase

We have been busy making samples for exhibit at the North Eastern Woodworkers show.  This year we have made a number of carved items for the Jatoba challenge.   Jatoba (also called Brazilian Cherry) is a very hard dense wood that is difficult to carve with hand tools.  It is very nice for CNC machining with our ShopBot router.
