Dwight Hostetter is an avid woodworking hobbyist who has been involved in woodworking for about 28 years. His first major wood working tool was a Shop Smith, but over the years has accumulated most major wood working tools and equipment. Dwight loves to work with wood. Spending evenings after work and weekends in his shop, he manages to turn out various wooden projects. He has built everything from strip canoes to baby beds and cradles. The largest majority of his work is one time projects, although he has built duplicates from time to time.
Bill Palmer - Showing Artist
"I am passionate about working with exotic woods. I appreciate them for their intricate grain patterns and natural colors. (All the colors in my work are the natural colors of each wood, except the black, which is actually purpleheart that I ebonize using a secret technique passed by word of mouth among wood artists). I get very excited by woods that we here in the South typically don't get to see. It is pure joy to be able to turn other people on to these jewels from around the world through my art."
"Meandering in the woods inspires creative ideas for me. I also get inspired by the materials themselves. Smooth jazz music keeps me centered while working. A shop full of cool tools and great equipment helps a lot, too."
