Beatrice II is even more beautiful in person! The wood is unique and craftsmanship perfect. Arrived carefully packaged and super fast. Very happy with this third purchase from talented Tanya.

A+++ ALL the way! Fits most bourbon bottles but looks best on this Town Branch that I have. My fellow Kentuckian makes some great pieces. Props to Lori for the nice message and quick shipping too:), Joey

I purchased this as a gift for mothers day and it was perfect. The design, the wood itself and the craftsmanship are all superior. Thank you!

What a beautiful bowl! The care it took in chosing the wood and turning the bowl is very apparent. And the handwritten note was a great personal touch! I have this bowl in a special spot in my entryway so I see it every time I come home.

It is beautifully made and the perfect size for what I was looking for.

Arrived safely and quickly. The beautiful woodworking is so much more apparent in person. It's balanced and lightweight in profile and from the top. I bought it for myself when I finally get out of perpetual renting and into my first home as a future housewarming gift (couldn't resist). Thank you!

Now THIS bowl is REALLY PRETTY and very STRIKING! It is Rainbow Poplar, and I can see some of the subtle shading of color. It is also dramatic how the bowl goes from dark to light to dark again. It is unusually beautiful also in that she does an excellent job sanding and finishing what she is working on. (This bowl has more of a matte finish, which is my favorite.) I am a repeat customer of this shop because I have found several very cool pieces. Tanya then quickly packages my purchase so neatly with plenty of bubble wrap and then it’s on its way, always with a thoughtful note and (I can tell) a lot of love. You can see that she takes pride in her work and strives to leave you happy and satisfied with your new treasure! 🙂 She wants you to stop by again, and with how well you’re cared for it’s a certainty!

Beautiful! Design is simple, clean and perfect. The wood is gorgeous. Workmanship is excellent. Second purchase...both perfect. Thank you.
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!
Historical archaeologist and woodturner.
Manager of all things outside of the woodshop.
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.
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.
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!
