Bear Creek Dough Bowls & Treenware

I am a retired logger, born and raised in Southwest Virginia. I'm inspired by the traditional way of living in the Appalachian mountains. I enjoy making dough bowls and other wooden products that are not only nice to look at, but can also be used in every day life. I have always had an interest in the old timey ways and enjoy putting my traditional handtools to work. I am pleased to be a juried member of RTM, Southern Highland Craft Guild and Black Horse Artisans.
