Our town library has a display case with a new display every month or so. I was asked to create a display of some of my woodworking. Since I am a hobbyist, I have no pieces “in stock.” So, I used some objects from around the house that I have made over the years.

I created descriptive and educational signs to include in the display. I plan to add some photos of larger pieces that I have made as well.

This was a lot of fun to design and set up.

I can’t help but think of this exchange from Steve Martin’s The Jerk:

Navin R. Johnson: The new phone book’s here! The new phone book’s here!

Harry Hartounian: Boy, I wish I could get that excited about nothing.

Navin R. Johnson: Nothing? Are you kidding? Page 73 – Johnson, Navin R.! I’m somebody now! Millions of people look at this book every day! This is the kind of spontaneous publicity – your name in print – that makes people. I’m in print! Things are going to start happening to me now.

[the Sniper points to Navin’s name in the phone book]

Sniper: Johnson, Navin R… sounds like a typical bastard
