Enoch Crumpton Jr
Enoch Crumpton Jr is a retired general and electrical contractor with a passion for wood working and fulfilling his dream along with pursuing his music as a singer/songwriter.
He started his wood art in Grants Pass with the idea of making umbrella stands using a method utilized in the making of wooden hot tubs, beveling wood in such a way as to create a cylinder. Together with using
exotic and repurposed woods and banding them together with textured copper bands to produce the umbrella stand.
His creativity didn’t stop there, he moved to very uniquely designed cutting boards, jewelry and key hangers and serving trays, creating “art with function in mind”. Some of his most recent projects include charcuterie boards using inlay techniques. He uses many different tools; saws,
sanders, routers, clamps and a myriad of plain hand tools.
