Instructors
 
Ed Youtz
 
Ed Youtz turned his first bowl as a high school sophomore. His career as a turner, however, was interrupted by 40 years of science teaching. Providing items for a church auction from a fallen ash tree brought him back to the lathe. The enthusiastic reception of the bowls made from that wood rekindled his interest in turning. Now, retired from teaching, he has more time to work at the lathe. He is a member of Bucks County and Lehigh Valley wood turning clubs and the American Association of Woodturners. Over the last several years he has sold his work at craft fairs, and was recently awarded State Jury status in the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen. We are fortunate to have Ed combining his enthusiasm for wood turning with his love for teaching at the WOODCRAFT store in Allentown, PA.

He takes special delight in crafting multi-axis lidded boxes, cremation urns, contemporary and 18th Century reproduction candlesticks, as well as his “Olde Tyme” series pepper mills and coffee grinders. To the greatest extent practical, his work is made from local trees lost to storms, removed for construction, or destined for the woodpile.
