NRBA Conference  Fall 2003 at Steve Fontanini's, Jackson Hole, Wyoming

Ward Grossman is one of only two people in the USA doing the traditional German craft of "Eisenhowering" --- cold carving steel with hammer and chisel. For the conference project, we make a clock case and wall bracket. Ward demonstrates the art decorating it. NRBA members join in to complete the project.
