|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.

John does the carvings which include all birds, animals and fish which are all carved with realistic detail. He also carves caricatures, wood spirits, walking sticks, busts and masks. Patty does the chip carving which is a decorative form of carving where specific shapes of chips are removed to form a design.

|Richard Hudson||Country Life Toys @ Clinch River Farms||Tazewell|
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.
|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.
|Thomas Ilowiecki||Knot Art||Washington|
I have been turning wood for more than 25 years and enjoy turning small projects such as wooden jewelry.
All my wooden jewelry is made from salvaged wood found in SWVA. The wood comes from power line clearing, my fire woodpile and from friends and neighbors. My system of segmenting allows me to use small pieces of wood. Some of my wood comes from knotty board, thus the name “Knot Art”.
My jewelry won first place in category at the Woodcarvers & Woodturning Symposium in Gray, TN in March 2007.

As a child I was always fascinated with wood and stone. That fascination led me to open my own handcrafted log home business, Highlands Log Structures in Abingdon, VA. I enjoy working with wood in all different ways. Handcrafting homes and furniture in conjunction with other natural elements gives me great satisfaction. I have been working with wood for over 20 years and enjoy crafting items that are unique and in harmony with nature -- naturally beautiful!
