Though he’s been working with wood for over 25 years, Tony DeMasi only recently turned it into a full-fledged business in 2015. He creates beautiful and functional bowls, vases, platters, pens, bottle stoppers and other items out of cherry, maple, large salted maple, box elder, walnut, mulberry and other woods. Most of his wood is carefully sourced from dead trees in Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia. A few times he received wood from Thomas Jefferson’s plantation in Charlottesville and from the White House.
Be sure to take a look at Turnings by Tony at the next Sugarloaf Crafts Festival. His artistic creations make great wedding, anniversary and holiday gifts.
