The Landmark Society’s 2016 Preservation Awards ceremony is only two days away. Today we finish up the list of 2016 award recipients with the Craftsman Award. This year’s Craftsman Award will be presented to Jim Turner, custom architectural millwork and restoration specialist from Honeoye Falls Millwork in Honeoye Falls.
With an impressive range of woodworking and millwork projects, Jim Turner is a veteran craftsman whose exceptional artistry has enhanced historic buildings in communities from New York State to Mississippi. Customers have included homeowners, churches, commercial properties, educational institutions, and historic sites. At his workshop in the historic village of Honeoye Falls, he creates reproduction woodwork for window and column restoration, custom moldings, stair parts, door reproduction and other architectural millwork projects. Special projects have included the documentation and reproduction of the intricate, 18th-century woodwork for the Eastman School of Music’s Craighead-Saunders pipe organ, which is a recreation of an original 1776 pipe organ in Vilnius, Lithuania.
