About Chuck

After 22 years of flying helicopters in the Marine Corps, I retired and moved my family to western North Carolina. With a little extra time on my hands, I devoted some of it to teaching myself woodworking which had always been on my bucket list. Thankfully, my wife Cressa was very supportive of the process and gave her blessing to most of the new tools that I needed to progress. I am lucky to have her.

We have three kids. Our son is attending NASCAR Technical Institute
. Sara is a student at Belmont University. Hannah is a student at our local high school. They are the best kids a dad could ask for.

We also have several four-legged kids- two horses, Boomer and Apache, a dog named Biscuit, and a cat named Dolly.

The mission at Wood Chuck American Cra
fts is to make high-quality products that are beautiful and will last a lifetime.


Thank you for your interest and for supporting local, small-business artisans!
