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!

|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.
|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.

|Walter Messick||Cabin Creek Musical Instruments||Grayson|
Being a musical instrument maker challenges me to use my body, mind & spirit. My love of history helps me understand the roots of folk music. Theology, 20 years a Lutheran pastor, enables me to integrate music in a spiritual sense. Each instrument is one-of-a-kind and individually handmade. I choose a variety of woods, match them to the best advantage for both aesthetics & sound. Therefore, the size & shape may be similar but each in a unique work of love & art from the beginning to the end.

I've been carving for several years. I prefer carving human forms like Indians, cowboys, spirit faces, sometimes famous people depending on my mood and spirit and likes at the time. I like using native woods from around the area like butternut and basswood and also clay is becoming one of my favorite medias.

After retiring from the federal government, I have pursued a lifelong love of woodworking. I enjoy making detailed scrolled magnets from quarter inch hardwood. I also enjoy making solid wooden birds from various woods with imaginative stands and bases. I also do wood turning and make writing pens.
|William (Dale) Norton||Left Turn||Montgomery|
I began woodturning out of a fascination with the infinite variety and beauty of wood, including its imperfections. I make bowls, hollow forms, lidded boxes, and platters. My pieces are generally decorative rather than utilitarian. I sometimes use surface texturing and carving, and now I am experimenting with color.
|Cecil Parsons||Cecil Parsons||Bristol|
Woodworking became a hobby to me after retirement and I was influenced by my oldest brother, Jerry, and a good friend who is a woodworker in WV. I've enjoyed making a few pieces of furniture but have enjoyed more making nice writing pens and pencils of local woods especially but also of exotic woods from overseas. It has been a pleasure to give many of my pens to family and friends and I hope they will be a good investment for others.
