Ken Burton has been working with wood professionally since 1984. He is spectacularly over-educated for a woodworker, holding an Associate of Arts degree from Bucks County Community College in Fine Woodworking, a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Arts Education from Millersville University of Pennsylvania and a Master of Fine Arts degree in Woodworking and Furniture Design from the School for American Crafts at the Rochester Institute of Technology. Ken’s studio, Windy Ridge Woodworks is a multifaceted endeavor reflecting his wide range of interests in various craft media. At the heart of the operation is the design and construction of studio furniture, custom cabinetry, and wood sculpture. This is coupled with the teaching of woodworking workshops and the writing of woodworking books and articles. This year, Ken wrapped up his career in public education and has signed on as a Senior Editor with Woodcraft magazine.
