Woodworker: Thomas Starbuck Stockton
The mother-of-pearl and abalone irises inlaid on Stockton’s cabinet (16 in. deep by 29 in. wide by 32 in. tall) were inspired by the springtime growth of yellow iris flowers in his driveway. Stockton’s cabinet is made of Claro walnut, the iris stems are koa, and the pulls are ebony. The finish is hand-rubbed oil.
The Sonoma County Woodworkers Association recently hosted its 34th annual Artistry in Wood show at the Sonoma County Museum in Santa Rosa, Calif. Thirty-one woodworkers from all over California brought 57 entries including furniture, turnings, art pieces, and instruments to the monthlong, juried exhibition, visited by more than 3,000 patrons.
