Lyle Wheeler
Share:
Lyle is an all-around "good ol' boy" from Millers Creek, North Carolina. He has been working wood for most of his life, specializing in ladderback chairs and furniture from the late 19th century, and he is also an accomplished blacksmith. He has been teaching at the Folk School for over two decades, and he is a long-time member of the Southern Highland Craft Guild, for which he does educational demonstrations. Little-known facts about Lyle...he is the current whimmy-diddle world champion in the professional division, and he enjoys communicating by postcard, one stamp at a time.
