Rick McFarland is a fourth-generation Arkansan who grew up in Texas. Each summer, he spent hours with his Grandpa Winstead, learning the art of woodcrafting. Now retired from his years as photo-journalist, Rick’s hobby has evolved into a full-time gig. He primarily uses hardwoods native to Arkansas and Missouri. Occasionally, if he stumbles across an exotic, he’ll include it as an accent in his pieces. In his spare time, Rick can be found at Les Steen’s woodshop in North Little Rock, where he and other woodworkers show off their work and tell an awful lot of tall tales.
