Fine Woodworking on Display this Month

Members of the Northeast Indiana Woodworkers Club or (N.E.I.) have filled the library display cases with members woodworking. Mr. Bill Sumney has been a woodworker for 12 years; it is his hobby and passion. Bill made a manger and nativity that encompasses 10 pieces and uses 170 pieces of wood. There is no paint or dyes used. The pieces are created using bird's eye maple, cherry and purple heart wood. It is gorgeous. His other piece on display is Intarsia. It has 131 pieces of wood, 23 different kinds of domestic and exotic woods. We also have keepsake boxes of many different types of word made by Leonard Roselle. Floyd Baughman is a master with the band saw his pieces are on display. David Dennis has customer woodworking pieces on display. Michael Couture showcases heirloom wood products. The library has pictures on Facebook but you should really see them up close. N.E.I. meets at the library every third Thursday of the month at 7 pm. If you have a love of woodworking we welcome you.
