D. Keith Hampton

Keith Hampton grew up on a farm near Ernfold where he was influenced by his grandfather’s woodworking abilities. He learned basic woodworking in 4H at the age of 12 and 20 years later, instructed the class for a few years.

He purchased his first lathe in 1981 and practiced on and off until 1998, when he was taught the basics of turning by Henry Franks of Gravelbourg, now of Saskatoon. He then purchased his lathe and a vast collection of tools and exotic woods. With help from others, he harvests wood such as cotton wood, buffalo berry and box elder burl from surrounding areas. Keith is a juried member of the Saskatchewan Craft Council.
