We have some great new work by local ACT wood worker Robin Cromer. One of our favourites is a two bowl set titled “Eleanor’s Oak”.
The bowls are made from a historic Pin Oak planted by First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt at the opening of the U.S. Embassy in Canberra on 4th September 1942. The U.S. Embassy donated a portion of the timber to the Woodcraft Guild ACT Inc. after the tree fell during a windstorm in January 2015.
Wonderful new butterfly marquetry boxes by Max Clerteau have just arrived in the Gallery. Perfect for jewellery and keepsakes they are made from various timbers.
A “wow” box by Mark Hailston just arrived. It recently won first prize at the ACT Woodcraft competition in the Boxes (not turned) category. The box core is marine plywood covered with shop made veneer. The veneer is made up of the following timbers: Blackwood, Jarrah, Wenge, Tas Oak & Celery Top Pine.
