After the Echo Lake conference, the group went to Washington D.C., where I rejoined them.  We were extraordinarily fortunate to stay in the home of woodturner Phil Brown and Dr. Barbara Wolanin, who received us with extraordinary grace and ran us into the ground with a punishing itinerary of visits to private wood art collections, punctuated by delicious meals.  We young people were quickly depleted but Phil and Barbara showed no signs of fatigue and we were duly humbled.  A selection of pictures of the pieces of greatest interest to your faithful scribe follows:
