Joe Dickey has been a professional and nationally recognized woodturner since 1984 with works in many private and public collections.  He helped establish and currently administers the Woodturning School and Co-op at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts.

He is a founding member of the Chesapeake Woodturners (www.ChesapeakeWoodturners.com), a chapter of the American Association of Woodturners.  He is also the past President of the Board of the Maryland  Federation of Art which operates a gallery at 18 State Circle in Annapolis.

Dickey is retired from Johns Hopkins University where he was a research physicist.  He turns wood by night and on weekends he plays banjo in Crabgrass (www.CrabgrassBand.com).

In his spare time, he and his wife Martha tend an American Chestnut orchard on their farm in Davidsonville, Maryland, as part of a cross-breeding program with the American Chestnut Foundation.

You can see more of his wood turnings and furniture on his website, (www.JoeDickey.com). He loves visitors interested in any of his activities.
