|Bill & Corinne Graefe||Phoenix Hardwoods||Floyd|
We handcraft one-of-a-kind furniture from local Virginia hardwoods, such as walnut, cherry, and figured maple. We use slabs we mill ourselves, and often use trees that would end up as firewood. Our designs are simple, to keep the essence of the tree, and our pieces are finely finished, so they can fit in any decor, from rustic log cabins to contemporary homes.

|Randal Eller||Eller Instruments||Smyth|
I have been involved in instrument construction since the early 80s. I was privileged to meet Albert Hash and spent three years learning as much as I could concerning wood selection, body style, finishes, and some old time fiddle tunes. In 2005 I was invited to participate in the National Folk Festival in Richmond, VA demonstrating fiddle construction learned in Southwest VA.
|Charles Eller||Charles Eller Chair Maker||Smyth|
I make traditional Windsor Chairs, using mostly hand tools. I use white oak for the arms and spindles, for its steaming and bending properties. I use sugar maple for the legs and stretchers, for its strength. For the seat I use eastern white pine, for its ability to be worked with hand tools. I use milk paint for the finish.

|John Dickens||John Dickens||Washington|
I have been carving for 51 years. I started carving when I was a boy scout. My family has always been in wood working, blacksmithing and stone masonry going back to the 1500s. I sell my carvings through the Folk Art Center in Asheville, NC, The Moses Cone Gallery and Holston Mountain Artisans in Abingdon, Va. Each time I create an animal I want to do it in a different pose so I can learn more about its anatomy and how it moves. I try to portray animals and people as realistically as I can.

|Hank Daniel||Hank Daniel||Washington|
Since retiring from a career in photography, I have become fascinated by the infinite variety of patterns and colors hidden inside pieces of wood.
|Terry Clark||Three Peaks Crafts||Grayson|
I have been a professional woodturner for 35 years. My turnings are from wood I cut in Grayson County, Va. and are mostly made from walnut, cherry, and maple although any wood with an interesting grain pattern is fair game! I am a self-taught woodturner even though I do have a degree in Industrial Arts from Berea College in Berea, KY.
|Katherine Clark||Katherine Clark||Washington|
My cutting boards and baguette boards are made from wood from our farm in Glade Spring, Virginia. I enjoy working with wood to create something fun as well as functional. Each varies a bit with the natural grain of the wood. The only finish on the wood is mineral oil. An occasional good rubbing with oil will keep it happy!
|Bill Chrisman||Bill Chrisman||Franklin|
A bird carved by Bill Chrisman demands to be held. One may know the bird is made from wood and still have to touch it to make sure its feathers are not real. Attention to detail of each bird and delicate touch with paints results in a remarkably realistic bird.
