Our Story

Hilton Handcraft of the Ozarks is a family run and operated business located deep in the heart of the Missouri & Arkansas Ozarks hill country.  Absolutely every craft, art and the majority of our products are hand made by the family and some of our closest relatives and friends. We incorporate woodworking, woodturning, painting, sculpture, polymer clay, fiber and several other crafts into our pieces. Some of our products include specialty wood (woodturning blanks of all sorts, large slabs for tables/benches, thin slices for box makers, and more), gallery woodturned pieces, craft show items, custom furniture (specializing in high-end lodge furniture out of local woods) and production work (woodwork and woodturning) for other companies.

     You can be assured that your gift or piece of art is made by real people, with real hands-on skill and time here in the heartland of America.  We think that is what makes the difference for you folks.  We take our time.  Some people think we "take our own sweet time" and that's fine with us! But the results are worth it every single time.  Look around and please hollar if there's anything we can do for you.

Our Advantages

  • Over 150 years of combined experience in all aspects of woodworking, restoration and art excellence.
  • If the old says is right ... "Teaching is the best teacher" then we've been taught well.  Everyone here teaches their particular craft, art and skills so that we can learn and grow in our field as well as pass it along to others.
  • Most of our materials are locally sourced.  That means, we use our own land and things that grow on it to make most of our items.  We use sustainable practices and re-use everything we can.  After all, we're Ozarkers!
  • This is a family-owned and operated business known in the region.  Our reputation is important to use and we make sure our quality and service are up to the standards of those that came before us.
  • We create furniture, wood sculpture, art pieces and restore centuries old items for clients from around the world.  We have experience and training that many others don't have.

Our Team

Of course, all that we do wouldn't be possible without our dedicated, skilled and creative group.
