The Star of the Show Is...............................................

 
Recently, we took time to visit Kerrville, Texas Arts & Cultural Center to see the 2014 Texas Furniture Makers Exhibit!  And we can say "what a show!" 
 
 
This show runs through the end of November.  The true star of the show is Mesquite wood! Gorman Ranch Desk is an outstanding piece of work

It is hard to get good photos as the wood bounces the ceiling lights.  This piece is by Wayne Deylea
