John Cashore

Master Woodworker

The joy that John has for nature and the woodworking process, inspired by his woodworking father, shows in every creation he brings to life from burl wood, which is a woody outgrowth on a tree. He harvests the burls without hurting the tree. In Downeast Maine since 1969, John has made his living from fine carpentry, and now has developed a passion for carving out the various forms he discovers tucked inside each burl. A John Cashore carving will bring natural magic and a reverence for the natural world into your home.
