Beauty — What Is It?

At our Dec 4, 2011 Right Brain Woodworking meeting we will continue our discussion of beauty. In particular, we will look at and discuss photos of woodworking pieces that individual members feel are either beautiful or ugly. By doing so, we hope to better understand our own aesthetic sensibilities.
Below are photos for discussion.

GSWT 3/25/11 meeting at Scott Russwick’s shop
Meeting was held at Scott Ruesswick’s shop in Canterbury NH.

Attendance was 46 counting those who signed in. My guess is that it was closer to 60. Great turnout. Many thanks to Scott and Barbra for hosting the meeting and the use of their shop. If that weren’t enough Scott also provided a demo.
