3rd Annual Wood Fair

Our friend John from Oregon arrived for a quick visit over the weekend and since he's a tree guy, we figured he'd enjoy the Wood Fair at the Glengarry Pioneer Museum.

There were all sorts of demonstrations. Here, Gerdine Van Woodenburg is making what she called "funky fungi" using a chain saw.

Richard and I sure could use this doohickey to move our wood in the wintertime.

These spiders made from tiny burls were kinda cool.

A large tree on the grounds of the museum recently sustained wind damage and they waited for Wood Fair for it to be tended to. It made for a great demonstration.

There were teeny trees for sale...

...and other booths with info about growing trees and woodworking. Loved this guy's t-shirt.

Best of all? Beau's Beer was being sold over at the Star Inn...the oldest bar in Eastern Ontario. Cold beer on a hot day shared with friends. Nothing better.

It looks like it was a lot of fun. I really like the spiders.
