Pine Roots Present a Challenge At the October Meeting of SDWC

Thanks to Don Arend a whole table full
of wondrous and assorted remnants of Black Hills pine tree roots were available free of charge to members attending the Second Thursday evening meeting of the SD Woodcarvers. It will be interesting to see what will eventually emerge from these uniquely different pieces of wood.

Don was also prepared to help with making the wound wire trees he is famous for, but no one was quite ready yet to try out this new art form. Maybe there will be more interest in that for our next meeting in November.

SPEAKING OF WHICH--Due to the Second Thursday occurring on Veteran's Day, this meeting will be postponed until the following Thursday, November 18th. (And if you buy into "Numerology" stuff and Gary, the Numbers Guy, you know that anything associated with the number 11 is probably a good thing to avoid…hence 11/11 is probably a really good date
to not go to any woodcarving meetings..?.:).

Also appearing at this meeting was the first of finished horse head projects, begun during the July meeting of SDWC at the Horse Barn Art Center. Pictured right is one of three samples brought in by Dick Sabers.
