~ Walt Lenar resides in Fredericksburg, Virginia with his wife Karen. The business Dream Works Wood Shop received its name in 2010 from his wife. She believes that the name Dream Works Wood Shop reflects his passion for woodworking and design as well complements his interpretation of his piece.
Walt’s work can be identified by its unique style and design by the blending of exotic, and or domestic woods, to create what may be described as contemporary, or perhaps, just capturing the imagination of the viewer’s eye by bringing out the beauty of the combined species of wood grain and character.
Walt uses a combination of power tools and traditional hand tools to design and create one of kind pieces for indoor and outdoor use. Every piece produced is different even in a slight way, while employing sound construction techniques to ensure it becomes a family heirloom.
Walt has had his work displayed in several galleries in Fredericksburg, Orange, Charlottesville, and the surrounding area.
Walt is an active member in the following organizations: (RATS) Richmond Antique Tool Society, (FAWG)Fredericksburg Area Wood Workers Guild, The Wood Whisperer Guild, and American Craft Council.
