|Jim Ketron||Clinch Mountain Woodturnings||Scott|
Woodturning is my passion! I love working with all types of wood that I harvest myself to create works of art than can be used or to be just admired.
I especially enjoy working with non-uniform pieces, such as burls and figured wood to give my work a unique piece that only Mother Nature can provide.
Please visit my website often as I will be adding pieces when they are finished.

It was the smell of the wood that drew me to my neighbor's workshop when I was young. I began making wooden toys for my daughters then I started to make old fashioned toys. My wife and I founded Mountain Kids Inc., a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of children. All sales are donated to Mountain Kids, which has grown along with my toy making. I am currently designing a catalog and a web site. My time is filled with good work and great excitement about the years ahead.

|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.

Since retiring from a career in photography, I have become fascinated by the infinite variety of patterns and colors hidden inside pieces of wood.
|Harold Lambert||Harold Lambert Studio||Pulaski|
After retiring, I started turning wooden bowls as a hobby. Soon, I had a house full and began selling and giving some away. As my involvement and interest grew, I attended every demo and workshop I could find. Consequently, my shop expanded; my expertise gradually improved and I am finding a growing reception of my work by fellow turners and the general public.

|B Keith Hurley||Hurley Custom Guitars||Smyth|
I am a native Virginian who, until 2007, lived and worked in the Washington DC area for the US Justice Department. After thirty years of civil service with DOJ, I retired to pursue my passion in lutherie. I now reside with my wife, Sarah, and our four wonderful children, Elena, Diana, Asher and Amelie in the culture-rich mountains of Southwest Va. I've played guitar most of my life and have always loved fine woodwork. In early 2000 I became interested in lutherie and found a guitar builder associated with a local music store in Old Town Alexandria, Va, who took me under his wing. The luthier's name was Roberto and he spoke little to no English. Over the next few years I spent afternoons and weekends with Roberto learning his craft. Language was no barrier. I was later inspired by Wayne Henderson who lived just a few miles from my parents in SW Va. As noted, I retired from Civil Service in 2007 and moved to Marion where I have established a lutherie shop on Main Street. My parents are native to the Greencove / Whitetop area, and I spend much of my childhood here.

|Joel Harte||Joel Harte Furniture Maker||Washington|
I have been hand-making furniture and cabinets for over 35 years. I work with solid wood, veneer and carve. We are capable of designing any style requested. My wife Nancy does the design work. My favorite woods are walnut and cherry.
|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.

I love seeing an image in my mind come to life on a piece of wood. I also draw and paint, but I always return to woodburning when I am feeling really creative.
