Woodworking with Steve Carey. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet Steve Carey and experience his unique form artistic expression on Tues., October 9, at 6:30 p.m. Carey is a lathe operator who makes household products out of high-quality woods, turning them on a lathe that was passed down to him from his grandfather. His Hooksett workshop is a constant source of production and what may start as a few long sticks of wood can turn into a chess board, a vase, a clock or a bowl. In many of his pieces, he joins different types of wood together to get different colors into his work. Some pieces have been put together with about 1,300 segments of wood. “It’s unique and something you won’t see elsewhere - no one else will have anything like it.”
