Pictures from the GCWA Spring Picnic
  
The food was great, the shaving deep and the camaraderie unsurpassed at GCWA's Spring picnic.  Does anyone recognize that masked man in the second row, below? 

Photos in the following sections were taken by Ric Taylor, Luna Ford and Jack Hanley


Pictures from the Houston Woodworkers Show
    
It's no surprise that the GCWA booth  at the Woodworker's Show was so popular with Show attendees--our members were busy demonstrating, answering questions and talking up the virtues of woodturning!
