Aaron Dickinson was a swashbuckler in a previous life. “I started making wood swords for my friends and I to play with in middle school,” the wood worker says. He began building furniture in high school and when he graduated, made furniture to help pay his way through college.
Now, in addition to large custom pieces like benches and entertainment centers, Dickinson turns wooden bowls and makes a wide variety of cutting boards, sandwich and cheese boards, rolling pins and kitchen utensils from Indiana woods, many of which you can find at Homespun!

We, along with our neighbor, raise chickens, guinea fowl, and ducks (meat and eggs); goats (milk), and rabbit (meat).
