John Hawkins
I had my first paying job at age 11. My Dad was a Mech. Engineer so I have been around tools & machines all my life. Since the age of 25 I have done laminate tops and casework. When I moved to Lex. I started building cabinets and furniture and have been doing so for 30 years. I have done kitchens, office fit ups, bars, restaurants and all types of residential projects. I have trimmed new construction homes and done built-ins of all types.

Ray Durham
I started "Carving" at age seven with my Father and Grandfather in the evenings under a shade tree on Grandpa's farm. Technically it was whittling but I always wanted to put more detail into it. I carved my first face at age eight and my first walking stick at thirteen.
I have honed my skills using such media as clay, wax, bone and silver.
I worked with my Uncle for five years restoring antique furniture and started building furniture in 87. In 1990 I began embellishing my pieces with carvings.
In 2002 I began to once again focus mainly on carving and use it to enhance my other projects.
So stop by the store and let's spend a few minutes talking about how it's done and what's needed to do it.

See ya soon,

Keith Hamilton
The greatest thing about Woodcraft is that it allows me to be around people who love what they do. It brings an inner joy to me when someone goes out of their way to share a project that they have put their heart into with me. Even without their knowledge they are passing along their happiness to all.

Mark Miller
My Grandfather's sawmill is where I got my first smell of sawdust. I went on to learn woodworking from my Father then on to get my BA from Western Kentucky University in Industrial Education. I worked in the kitchen and bath design software business before designing homes and supervising the drafting department for Ball Homes. I have now come full circle back to woodworking.

Wood turning is my passion as well as watching others get excited about a certain aspect of woodworking.
