Gloat - my turning club at AAW symposium

The turning club where I'm a member made a collaborative project for the AAW symposium in Phoenix. Today I learned that our entry won both the Fantasy and the Technical sections. (But due, no doubt, to nepotism and intrigue we didn't take the Best in Show. Ahem. "We wuz robbed, guvner.")

Here's a photo of how it looked just before packing to be shipped down to Phoenix: the small individual pieces were turned by many club members. (Our names are laser-engraved on the base, you can see that lot's of folks contributed to the project.)

LOL! At one point in time, there was a joke that the engraving around the base was going to include the text

Wow, what a cool display! Congratulations to you guys for the wins.

FYI, for those who are unaware, AAW = American Association of Woodturners. I only know because I just looked it up.

Thanks Steve

Sorry, I didn't mean to be enigmatic -- this is the woodturning forum, aren't all woodturners members of AAW? (IMO they should be, if only for the wonderful, inspiring magazine they produce, "American Woodturner")

I also figured that most of the folks here are AAW members.

It is a very cute project. Congratulations to your club on the honors. Could you explain your remarks regarding nepotism and intrigue. I am hanging in suspense wondering what you might be referring to.

Nothing to explain, really ... just a joke.

Oh yeah, silly me. I didn't even realise I was in the turning forums. I almost never find my way into these parts so I wasn't at all familiar with the AAW. I imagine you're correct that the turners here likely already know the reference.

Oh well.

Thanks

The widest shelf spacing was 3", most were less than that -- so the pieces range from a maximum height of 3" down to maybe 1.5".

I don't remember the height of the complete construction -- just over 3' perhaps?

In all fairness, the folks who were at the symposium said that the piece which took top honors was beautiful. (It hasn't appeared on the AAW website yet but I'll link to it when it does.)
