Ron Kane worked as a carpenter on more than 38 movie sets and for four years apprenticed to Egyptian King Faruq’s sculptor Mustaf Naguib, but his career came to a sudden halt when he injured his spine on the set of Road to Perdition. Kane has since settled in a Candler-based warehouse-turned-living space where he crafts wooden artwork for customers.
