Kevin Leon Felderhoff
Specializing in American Handcrafted Heirloom Reclaimed Furniture & Wood Turned Art
Kevin Felderhoff is a woodworker and woodturner currently residing in Brevard, North Carolina. He was born and raised in Muenster, Texas and earned a BS in Industrial Technology with an emphasis in Construction Management from Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas.
Kevin's love for building things and working with wood started in high school, where he was fortunate to have an amazing shop teacher who taught him great woodworking techniques. He began designing and building furniture in high school, and has continued to do so throughout his life using reclaimed barnwood and mesquite.
While living in Alabama, he was introduced to woodturning by a colleague and quickly became involved with the Alabama Woodturners. In 2009, he was elected as the President of the organization. He started turning on a Rikon Mini Lathe in 2007 and now uses a Powermatic 3520B.
Living in the mountains of North Carolina, he has had the opportunity to participate in numerous exhibitions and demonstrations. Fallen wood is prevalent in the area, which has provided him with the opportunity to challenge and grow his analytical and artistic mind. He finds turning to be stimulating and mentally challenging, as he analyzes the rescued wood and calculates the best angle to mount it on the lathe.
Kevin is a member of the Carolina Mountain Woodturners and the American Association of Woodturners. Through these organizations, he has been able to connect with other woodturners, learn new techniques, and showcase his work in exhibitions and galleries. He has also written numerous articles for the AAW, sharing his expertise and knowledge of woodturning with others. In addition, he teaches Woodturning at
John C Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, North Carolina.
One of the unique items Kevin is known for turning is wooden cowboy hats. He has created many beautiful and intricate designs that showcase the versatility and creativity of woodturning.
For Kevin, it is particularly satisfying to rescue a gnarly piece of wood and transform it into an exquisite piece of unique art. His passion for woodturning continues to inspire and impress, and he looks forward to continuing to create beautiful and innovative pieces in the years to come.
