Woodworker: Rolly Rhodes
Inspired by the work of 18th-century New England furniture makers such as John Townsend, Rhodes’s block-front chest (22 in. deep by 38 in. wide by 30-1/2 in. tall) received the Society of American Period Furniture Makers award at the show. The primary wood is cherry and the secondary wood is poplar. The finish is aniline dye and lacquer rubbed out with 0000 steel wool.
The San Diego Fine Woodworkers Association, in conjunction with the San Diego County Fair, presents its Design in Wood exhibition each year in Del Mar, Calif. This is one of the more than 300 pieces that were exhibited at this year’s show, the 33rd. Judges presented more than 90 awards in 24 distinct categories, from period furniture to wood carving.
