Look What Dardos Can Do!
This post is a slightly off topic, but we just had to pay tribute to the amazing beater and the team that built it at the recent Friends of Dard Hunter Conference at the Arrowmont School of Art and Crafts in Gaitlinburg, TN. Led by David Reina, over the course of three days, 200 people hours, with architectural-grade plywood and the Arrowmont woodshop, they put together a working wooden beater. The intention is that the plans will eventually be on the Friends website, for others who might like to take on the challenge.
Above, friend of Book Bombs, Nicole Donnelly makes some cuts on the design with assistance from Brian Queen. Below are some of the images in-progress.
And by Saturday evening, she was ready and working!
