Don Jones, the creative mind behind Turned Wood by Don Jones, is a favorite at Sugarloaf Craft Festivals, so much so that he gives free wood-turning demonstrations throughout the day to guests. Don harvests his own wood and only uses pieces native to Pennsylvania and Maryland. He starts with raw pieces of dogwood or honey locust and oils them to enhance their natural color. Then he places the raw wood blocks in the wood turner and uses different gauges to sculpt his design. Stop by his booth and see his incredible sculptures and keepsake boxes. And be sure to catch one of his demonstrations so you watch in detail how he creates each piece.
