Instructor Bio: Charlie Brown relocated to Hickory, NC in 2009 after retiring as a civil engineer. He soon became involved with woodworking clubs he discovered while attend- ing the Klingspor's Woodworking Shop Extravaganza in Hickory. A lifelong woodworker, local clubs became a way to meet other woodworkers and learn new skills and techniques. He makes furniture and incorporates inlays, marquetry pictures and geometric shapes when possible. As the current President of the Western Piedmont Woodcrafters Club and immediate past President of Marquetarians of the Carolinas, he often demonstrates his skills at the Klingspor Extravaganza Marquetry booth and is a co-instructor for a yearly marquetry class at John Campbell Folk School. A frequent customer at Klingspor's Woodworking Shop, Charlie occasionally teaches an Introduction to Marquetry Class at the Hickory store.
