Instructors
 
Jim Hanson
 
Jim started carving around 1973 or '74 with a night class at one of the local high schools. It took about seventeen seconds and he was hooked! He started in relief carving, mostly military badges, pilot and navigator wings. Slowly he moved over to working in the round. Jim has worked on western figures, both caricature and realistic. To keep current and improve his skills, he has taken seminars with some of the best carving instructors in the country. Jim started conducting classes at Woodcraft five years ago, working mostly with beginning carvers. "I believe the beginning carver should have sound basic principles to begin with that will result in safe work habits. I also believe the instructor should encourage and help the student to improve their work anytime after the class is concluded," says Jim. He is a current member of the following organizations: National Woodcarvers Association, California Carvers Guild, and Capital Wood Carvers Association.

Currently, he is at the store on Tuesdays keeping the lumber section stocked and organized.

Ray Woodbeck
 
Woodworking has been a passion of mine ever since I can remember. My first woodworking tools were given to me at 5 years old. I used to cut big wood into little wood. Now...over 30 years later, I am still at it. My passion turned into a hobby, then into a part-time job that I love. After years of making personalized gifts for friends and family, I now offer my services to the general public. This is not my career (I am a H.S. Math Teacher) so my projects are not about money, rather the love of the art of woodworking and the natural beauty of wood. Recently, I have begun teaching woodworking classes at Woodcraft so others can find the same pleasure in woodworking.
