Woodworker: Nicholas Nelson
Winner of Best in Show, this curved cabinet was inspired by the coastal scenery of British Columbia. Nelson said he designed it to convey a sense of motion. The cabinet (13 in. deep by 36 in. wide by 21 in. tall) is made of Chinese elm, European cherry, western maple, and Japanese maple. The finish is shellac and wax. Nelson also won the Peer Award for this piece, which means it was chosen by a vote of all the Guild members who came to the show, and the Paul Lee Award, which recognizes an entry that blends a playful spirit with sound construction.
