Let’s give a warm welcome to Mr. Thomas Tucker, also known as the “Travelin’ Woodwright” to the 2015 Heritage Festival! Mr. Tucker, pictured above, will demonstrate the craft of woodworking from the 1700 and 1800’s! Tucker will demonstrate how intricate pieces of woodwork were made using a simple woodturning lathe he handcrafted himself. Thomas Tucker has been demonstrating traditional woodworking for over 25 years.  “I demonstrate at 15 events and school programs throughout the year.  I want the people to smell the wood and feel the tools as I try to present to the viewing public a small snapshot of the effort it took to survive in early America,” Tucker said.
