Jack Stone has been using traditional hand tools and local native woods to make period items such as wood buckets, piggins, butter tubs, butter churns, and wash tubs in his shop in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, since 2006.
Stone’s focus has been to educate others by demonstrating his ancient craft at museum programs and living history events. Most recently he has demonstrated coopering during special events at the Landis Valley Village & Farm Museum, Hans Herr House, Moland House, Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania, and Conestoga Museum, all in Pennsylvania.
Stone’s items are sought out by re-enactors looking for authentic and functional cooperage, including a Revolutionary War period group (Muskets of the Crown) for their re-enactment events at Colonial Williamsburg and other re-enactments throughout the East.
