Woodturners in Atlanta are so fortunate. We have so many different AAW woodturning chapters in
Just this past week I attended an all day workshop with David Ellsworth followed a couple of days later by an all day demonstration at the local Woodcraft Store, again sponsored by the Georgia Association of Woodturners. This coming week I will spend a day at a workshop with Cynthia Gibson to enhance by pyrography skills (also known as using a woodburner). Such great opportunities.
Now do these offset the horrendous traffic we have in the Atlanta area? Humm. I will have to get back to you on that.

I am fortunate to have the opportunity to have two regional symposiums so close by. The bad news was there were fewer vendors this year than last and attendance appeared to be down as well. The instant gallery was pretty small compared to last year and compared to Turning Southern Style Symposium in Dalton last year. I do have to wonder about its future.
Dennis Liggett's demo on tangle Aspen was a great introduction to a new doodling art form called Zentangle. It works very well on Christmas ornaments but I see how it could be used with pyrography on other pieces.
