30th Anniversary Show at Northwest Fine Woodworking

John Thoe with his Mirror
I was privileged to attended the recent opening on Friday night for the 30th Anniversary Show at Northwest Fine Woodworking in downtown Seattle. The large gallery was not only full of beautiful furniture, turned wood and wood art, but a great crowd of admirers, collectors and resident artists.

Northwest Fine Woodworking started 30 years ago as a woodworking cooperative and has been a Seattle destination for woodworkers and collectors alike. This show embraces the new work of some of its long standing members such as David Gray, Grady Mathews, Tom Stangeland, and Curtis Erpelding, as well as relative new comers such as Hugh Montgomery and Seth Rolland.

There was also a wonderful showing or new work by Fine Wood Artists members John Thoe, Brad Gallahar, Robert Spangler, Spencer Horn, and Tom Deady.

Northwest Fine Woodworking is indeed a unique institution in the field of fine woodworking and this historic show is worth a visit. Whether looking for inspiration or a heirloom quality item for your home, now is the chance to see some of the best craftsmanship and innovative design out there.
