Terry Bair – A table made from a two by four that developed a cupped top.
John Darovec – A wooden towel rack that wasn’t water resistant.
Susan Darovec – Turned bowls that developed cracks and when glue applied to cover the crack a black circle was left around the crack.
Larry Simmons – Made a replacement handle for a plane, but when put together it didn’t line up right so the handle had to be reworked.
Mike Swart – Made a head and footboard for a bed, but when it was tried out…it squeaked.
Denny Wetter – Turning a bowl and turned the bottom off of it.
John Philips – Remodeled the inside of a 1935 Rolls Royce – wouldn’t do it again.
Sid Mann – Sharpened and replaced blades on a planer. Accidentally left the wrench in the planer and started it up.
Ed Goldberg – Created an inlay, but should have used a different technique for gluing.
