Announcement    Welcome to Creekview Woodshop, located in beautiful Bourbon County, Kentucky. My turned wooden bowls, wood trays, lidded vessels, and other handcrafted wood pieces combine my love of trees and my love of shapes, especially interesting shapes viewed in profile. I like to think of my work as functional art, one-of-a-kind pieces designed to be both beautiful and useful.

Hopefully my love of nature is visible in my work. I primarily use salvaged and reclaimed wood sourced here in Central Kentucky. The few exotic woods I use are not endangered and come from fine furniture makers' offcuts, which would be burned or discarded otherwise.

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.

With the exception of over-sized items, we offer free first class domestic shipping on everything in our shop. If you need your order quick, no worries. We always ship within 1-2 business days and do our best to get your package in the mail the next business day after you place your order. We appreciate eagerly awaiting the delivery of an online purchase and want to get your order to you as quickly as possible!

Thank you for visiting our shop and feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Updates

We recently had the woodshop expanded, and one of the unexpected perks of more space is that there's room for Lori to keep me company. Here she's editing photos for Etsy while I'm working on Florestine, a staghorn sumac bowl.
This persimmon wood wasn't as dry as most of the wood I work with, which made it a lot of fun to turn! Lots of worm holes and some nice coloring give it added character.
I love playing with shapes and the flying saucer is one of my very favorites.

Historical archaeologist turned woodturning enthusiast

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

    Owner

    Historical archaeologist and woodturner.

  • Lori

    Marketing, Photographer

    Manager of all things outside of the woodshop.

  • Sherman

    Assistant

    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

    Security

    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

    Security

    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!
