Making Spheres with Surface Enhancements
Dick took up woodworking in 1979, but a 1981 article on turning in Fine Woodworking caught his eye and he started turning. There was no network of turners to look to for information or advice, a void the beginning turner felt was in strong need of being filled. By chance, Nancy (his wife) heard about a woodturning conference that was to be held at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts in 1985. As he was preparing to give the welcoming address, event organizer David Ellsworth remembers that Dick came on stage with an armload of papers on how to start an organization. "The rest," Ellsworth notes,"is history."
By the end of the event the foundations of the organization were formed, and the AAW officially incorporated in 1986. Dick was asked to join the AAW board a year later, and served for six years of the AAW's formative years, four of them as treasurer.
