Bristol wood guru is honored
BRISTOL — The owner of a Bristol business was recognized when the Vermont Wood Works Council recently announced its annual Woodworking and Friend of Industry awards.
The council, which in January changed its name from the Vermont Wood Manufacturers Association, cited Dustin Glasscoe, owner of Vermont Farm Table in Bristol, as its 2017 Vermont Woodworker of the Year Award.
Glasscoe, son of Buddy Glasscoe of Timberwolf Designs in North Carolina, was tutored in his dad’s workshop as a young boy. In 2009, he established Vermont Farm Table in Bristol, which has grown rapidly since then.
Reclaimed wood, which makes up about 50 percent of the business, earned Glasscoe the Vermont Retail Association’s Greentailer of the Year award in 2013. The company doubled sales in 2017 and is planning to double again in 2018, and is currently hiring, the Vermont Wood Works Council said.
Vermont Farm Table has a production shop on Munsill Avenue in Bristol and a retail shop on College Street in Burlington.
“Our team is incredibly honored and grateful for this recognition,” Glasscoe said. “As you can imagine, we admire all Vermont woodworkers and their passion for the craft. Let’s all keep up the great work!”
