So last Friday I got a call from Bob Stevenson, the organizer for the San Diego “Design in Wood” juried show. He said that there was a problem with my jewelry box:
Apprently, the bottom hinge siezed and when he started to open the door, the wood on the front of the box was starting to chip out. He did a quick repair but it meant that the door could not be opened for the judge that was making his/her way around the fair.
This is my first juried show and I am very proud of the box so I was crushed to find out that the judge would not be able to see all the detail on the inside.
It took a day but I finally recovered and was happy that the piece was selected from the many that were submitted. It will be seen by thousands of people at the largest woodworking show in America.
I am flying out to San Diego tomorrow and I am going to see what I can do to get the door open carefully while I am out there. I am really looking forward to seeing the other pieces and meeting some fellow woodworkers.
