Historical archaeologist turned woodturner

Welcome to Faberson’s Creekview Woodshop located in beautiful Bourbon County, Kentucky. It’s a bit of a small shop, a very green shop (literally), and a fun shop where I enjoy spending my free time turning wood.

I earned my Ph.D. in Anthropology at the University of Tennessee (go Vols!) and am a historical archaeologist by trade. I spend my work days excavating sites, analyzing artifacts, and writing up the findings of those excavations. Some of my projects have been very cool, others not so much, but I enjoy what I do and am lucky to have a fun job.

While I always have loved woodworking, I didn’t get actively into it until the last few years. My dad, Henry, was a carpenter by trade and a woodworker (as well as a cowboy and a world traveler with wild stories, but I’ll leave those for another time). He passed away in February 2016, after a 3-year battle with cancer, and my sister and I inherited his tools. While I miss my dad every day, working in the shop with some of his tools makes me feel like he’s not so far away.

I try to use mostly found and reclaimed wood and like to think that my love of nature is visible in my work as I seek to incorporate elements of the wood as I found it in each piece. The imperfect is perfect in my book, and I want those who view my work to be reminded that the wooden object in their hands once was part of a beautiful, living tree.

You might notice that all of the items in my shop are named. Naming my pieces falls in line with a long history of naming, well, everything.

In my shop, I have several “helpers.” They’re a furry trio of troublemakers that mostly do things like inspect the shop to make sure squirrels didn't invade while we were in the house or think that pile of woodchips and saw dust in the shade under a power tool would make an excellent bed.

Finally, Creekview Woodshop donates a portion of every sale to Green Forests Work, a nonprofit dedicated to re-establishing healthy and productive forests on formerly mined lands in Appalachia.

Thanks for stopping by and feel free to contact me if you have questions!

Shop members

  • Tanya


    Historical archaeologist and woodturner.

  • Lori

    Marketing, Photographer

    Manager of all things outside of the woodshop.

  • Sherman


    The General fancies himself in charge of the shop, so he wouldn't be too thrilled with being called my "Assistant" here. He spends most of his time napping on sawdust piles and making sure the shop remains a squirrel-free zone.

  • Walter


    Loud noises scare Walter even when he's wearing his Thundershirt, so he guards the perimeter of the property from all would-be intruders, like squirrels, opossums, and the mail carrier.

  • Eggnog


    While preferring to be on a lap, Eggnog sometimes joins me in the shop (sure, it's usually to demand a treat from my stash). She also provides Walter back-up. She may weigh 5 pounds, but she's the most ferocious of the bunch. Just ask the neighbors!
