NCCW attends the Avon lake Home Coming in September. Pictured here is Mark Yourich, VP of NCCW.
Mark is displaying wood crafts made by himself, Bruce Clarke and Bill McKracken. There was a great deal of interest in our company here. We met a lot of people and made a lot of new friends. People of like minded interest in wood working. At the show we offered tee shirts and sweat shirts for sale, a raffle for a free massage at Massage Envy, (donated by Massage Envy, Westlake). We also had a 50/50. The winner of the 50/50 was Christina Perez. Christina donated her winnings back to NCCW. Thanks so much Christina!
Pictured above is Bruce Clarke who explains the purpose and mission of NCCW to an interested visitor to our table. Bruce has been with NCCW since the begining in January, 2013.
Pictured above is a bowl that Mark Yourich was in the process of making in his home wood shop. This is a segmented bowl, which means that the bowl is made out of a whole lot of small segments that are glued together and then shaped on the lathe. This bowl is a work in process. Mark took the bowl off of the lathe to show people what it would look like half way through the process. This bowl is made out of 3 different pieces of wood. Black walnut, (the dark wood), maple (the dogs and light colored bands) and an exocit wood that turns green with age that I can’t even spell (3 leaf clovers). Mark finished the bowl a few days later and his wife took it to a dog show in Philadelphia for an auction. Marl’s bowl fetched $1,000 at auction for his wife’s kennel club. WOW! Good job Mark! Well done! I’m begining to think that we should have an auction. LOL.
