Dr. Scott Josiah , a member of our club, made arrangements to acquire some of this rare wood for our club . In exchange for the wood our club agreed that once we had turned the wood, several of the turned pieces would be put on permanent display at the Nebraska Forest Service headquarters on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s East Campus and at Arbor Lodge. The project is now nearing completion and in December the pieces to be displayed will be selected. While each of us would like to keep this piece of history, we would all be honored to have our work chosen for display. Joanie Cradick has written an article about this project that was published in the Lincoln Journal Star. To read the entire article click on the link below.

The American Chestnut Project Completion http://www.greatplainswoodturners.com/the-american-chestnut-project-completion/ http://www.greatplainswoodturners.com/the-american-chestnut-project-completion/#respond Sat, 23 Mar 2013 16:15:04 +0000 http://www.greatplainswoodturners.com/?p=58 The American chestnut project came to it’s completion at the December 20th meeting of the Great Plains Woodturners Club. All members who received pieces of the chestnut wood, brought their completed turnings to the December Meeting. Two representatives of the Arbor Foundation attended with Dr. Scott Josiah and after reviewing all of the pieces created from the American Chestnut wood we received, they selected a Vase turned by Curt Norman and a Bowl turned by Theo Alles . These pieces will be placed on permanent display at Arbor Lodge and the Nebraska Forest Service Office. This brings to a close our year long chestnut project. I will post pictures of the entire collection when they become available.

This large bowl was presented to the Nebraska Forest Service as a token of our appreciation for the gift of this rare and beautiful wood. It will be placed on permanent display at their office . Many Nebraska Forest Service and USDA National Agroforestry Center staff were on hand for the presentation. After the presentation Theo was treated to lunch with the rest of the staff. Dr. Scott Josiah tells us that they are in the process of creating a mounted display for the Chestnut bowl.
