I’m not sure of any other woodworking events but this one is every year and anyone can enter but pictures have to be submitted and you have to be accepted before you are in the show. You can google Artistry in wood to find out more info.

Beautiful stuff no doubt. Makes me homesick though, I grew up just outside of Dayton. Texas is a looong way from there.

Hey, you got to see the Boris Khechoyan throne and clocks in person! He’s a local St. Louis woodcarver who sometimes teaches classes at Woodcraft. I think he also teaches out of his home studio, too. He’s an incredibly talented artist who came to the US from Azerbaijan. I’m not sure if he still uses them now, but for years he made all of his own carving tools from scrap metal he was able to scavenge when he lived in the USSR. He did a presentation at our local woodworker’s guild meeting last year; it was one of the better presentations I’ve attended.

Anyone living near the St. Louis area who wants to learn better carving skills and techniques should definitely consider contacting him.

Beautiful work Roger. You deserved the awards you received. Your work is next to none. Thanks for showing the other incredible things there as well, the cock fight and turtle and fish were pretty amazing. I really liked the stock work on the shotguns. mike

Excellent work Roger, and thanks for sharing the photos. I attended that show for the past 4 years when I was back home living in Cincinnati. Having moved south, I keep telling myself to tajke a trip back home, but always miss the date, and remember it when I see messages like yours :-) Thanks again
