Debra Crane
 
Debra Crane is a retired software developer who has been woodworking off and on for the past 20 years. In the early years her projects included simple pieces of furniture, storage solutions and carpentry projects. But when she bought her first scroll saw in 2001, she knew she had found her real delight: making gifts that are beautiful and functional. She especially likes projects that cultivate her skills in scrolling, carving, pyrography and intarsia. She also enjoys introducing others to the artistic side of woodworking.
In 2003 Debra began studying intarsia at Roberts Studio in Seymour, TN, with Judy Gale Roberts and Jerry Booher. Later that same year, she began working at the Woodcraft store in Franklin, TN, as a retail associate. As the store grew, Debra was asked to conduct in-store scroll saw demonstrations. In 2004, she began teaching hands-on classes for both beginners and intermediate scrollers. In 2006, she expanded her classes to include instructional seminars and multi-day hands-on intarsia classes using methods and techniques employed at Roberts Studio.

Also Debra has just recently received training and is now a FESTOOL Specialist.

Judy Jones
 
Coming from a long line of carpenters, carvers, and cabinetmakers, JJ got into woodworking early. "I 'helped' in my Dad's shop almost from the time I could walk and talk. I was allowed to use the scraps to build my own projects." Limited working space means most of JJ's projects these days are small scale; jewelry boxes, music boxes, and bandsawn boxes are particular favorites. "At the moment the only furniture projects I can manage are miniatures in doll house scale." Most recently JJ has been learning to carve and turn wood at the lathe. With more than 20 years of experience in formal and informal education, JJ is also enjoying the opportunity to introduce others to woodworking through Woodcraft University.

Tim Williams
 
Tim is a retired Chemical Engineer graduating from Tennessee Tech. After a 30 year career with DuPont, Tim has filled his time following his passion for woodworking. A hobby he developed by watching his Grandfather woodwork to keep the Franklin farm intact, his Father creating items needed in their house, and his Uncle as he manufactured furniture and taught shop at Franklin High School. This gave Tim many opportunities to learn not only the practical side of woodworking but also the science of the craft. Many projects have come through his shop including, gun cabinets, curio shelving, numerous turning projects from high post beds, to candlesticks, to fern stands. The pieces that he has enjoyed the most are the Grandfather Clocks and the wall clocks. The love for this craft is shared among his family since Tim's wife is an Interior Designer and his 4 children keep the list growing. Working at Woodcraft he has found that the wide variety of customers that visit the store offers a perfect forum to learn new ideas and share expeiences with the patrons.
