Woodworker: Rave Clay

"I have always had a love for windmills, the lone artifact in the low plains of Oklahoma," Clay says, citing the inspiration for this box on stand. The piece, 12-in. deep by 18-in. wide by 48-in. tall, is made of kwila, Siberian elm, and eastern maple. The stand is joined with half-lap joints; the box, with dowels. The finish is shellac. "At CR, where sawing, chiseling, paring, and planing never seemed to stop, I was able to work with and learn from some of the West’s finest woodworkers. What I gained from my time there was not limited to the world of fine woodworking, and will stay with me forever," Clay says. Photo credit: David Welter.
