Fine Woodworking Artist Steve Noggle | Turned Wood | Morganton, NC

Woodworker Steve Noggle is featured at the 71st annual Craft Fair of the Southern Highlands


Long before woodworker Steve Noggle took the first spin on his lathe, the former timber cruiser spent his days in the Pacific Northwest working alongside the U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management. But in 1980, following the death of his grandmother, Noggle returned to Morganton, where he purchased the family property and eventually transformed part of the space into his studio.

Another 21 years passed, however, before the craftsman discovered the art of wood turning. In 2001, happenstance led him to a demonstration inside a wood shop. Captivated by the process, he purchased a cheap lathe and set of tools that day.

Today, Noggle is the featured maker at the 71st annual Craft Fair of the Southern Highlands, which runs Friday-Sunday, Oct. 19-21, at the U.S. Cellular Center. As is the case with each year’s featured maker, Noggle was selected by the Fair Committee of the Guild.
