Troy Cottrell

Troy Cottrell was born in the Alleghany Highlands, his school years were spent in Baltimore, but this was always home. At age sixteen, upon graduation from high school, he packed his van and came home to the Highlands. Here he put his hands on wood in the construction trade and hasn’t put it down since. Like his father and step-father, Troy is a self-taught wood worker.  Troy’s pieces are made from locally harvested trees of oak, sassafras, walnut, cherry, hickory and others that he finds. Troy and his wife are an example of the kind people you will find here. They have made a home here for their children; biological children, adopted children, and more than twenty foster children.
