Painting, Gluing, Crafting

This is how it all begins--cutting wood parts out of long rough-sawn boards and sanding.  Then the parts get painted, stained, assembled, and decorated.  

Little wood parts become ornaments like this Angel Baby.

These Folk Art Angels aren't finished, but will have a bow around the candle cup and a flickering lightbult and dotted eyes.

Here are some finished nativities ready for the shops in Dillsboro and Franklin for the July and October tourist season.
