Bob Stinson of Hillview has been a previous participant in contests in the Kentucky State Fair.
He won ribbons in the past. Thanks to his wife’s purchase of a lathe upon his retirement in 2005, the woodturner had equipment to use in his hobby.
This year, Stinson captured his first blue ribbons at the Kentucky State Fair. He won blue for his free standing wooden decoration vase.
He also won a second-place red ribbon for his bracelet and pendant made of wood.
Stinson won third place honors for his wooden Christmas ornament made of a material other than fabric.
