Champagne reception for artist Jim Womeldorf

Join us for champagne and hors d'oeuvres, meet the artist, and see this most unusual and beautiful art show at Java John's.

From the artist:

Laurel and I played a lot of cribbage when we were first married and I made a couple cribbage boards from ‘interesting’ pieces of wood.  That piqued my interest in unusual cribbage boards and since then I have collected pieces of wood, most of which grew on our acreage near Decorah, with an eye toward making unique cribbage boards.  I now have a lot of pieces.

I have written computer programs that allow me to produce hole-drilling instructions for the machine that incorporate the shape, knots, coloring, and other features of the boards into the hole pattern for each cribbage board.  Virtually every board I make has a unique pattern.

I hope you enjoy looking at my creations.
