Curtis Barnes

I am a craftsman….

I am most adept at the turning of pens and Christmas ornaments, and at making whirligigs. Occasionally I build a piece of furniture for a friend. I do woodworking as a hobby; it can never be a “job” for me. It is the freedom of working in my crafts that gives me pleasure.

About Curtis Barnes…

Retired high school biology teacher–Cumberland County School System

Media–native and exotic woods. I enjoy many forms of woodwork–carpentry; making whirligigs; and turning pens, ornaments and even table legs on the lathe. Recently I’ve tried my hand at making dulcimers and a hammered dulcimer. I’ve also learned to make kaleidoscopes and enjoy that art.

Other interest include growing daylilies and participating in activities of the American Hemerocallis Society and teaching Sunday School and running the sound system for Bluff Presbyterian Church.
