Join us at our next Rochester Woodcarvers Monthly Club meeting when we will be playing the NorthStar Scrollers Documentary Video.

The NorthStar Scrollers Club is an eight year old club working to develop an interest and increase knowledge in scroll sawing, such as intarsia, fretwork, marquetry, pyrography and crafts.


The video introduces these arts and then the 3 founding fathers talk about how the club came to be.Some of the members discuss how they have interacted with the club and how it has encouraged and improved their projects.  Samples of scroll sawing permeate the story. There is also a segment about the non-profit TLC Toys that the club helps cut toys for.


You already know some of the NorthStar club members like: ‘Swede’ Bengtson, Denny Schuster, Matt Zarling and Nick Poleschuk. They welcome you to visit their meetings in Bloomington, MN. Find additional information about the NorthStar Scrollers at:

See you there!

Please invite your spouse, family, friends and neighbors to the meeting!

The club library will be open so bring your books to exchange.

Remember to bring your "Show and Tell" items.

A great time at the June 2017 Club Picnic!

Club member Wayne Hendrickson took some photos at the club picnic and we've added them here. A huge thanks to LaVerne Schettl for hosting the picnic at her home and all the other volunteers who helped out to make this a great event!

Your review of changes to Club Constitution/Bylaws

Club board member Tim Melin has been working hard to coordinate an officer/board revision of the Club Constitution/Bylaws to reduce the time and personal commitment that members make to be a president/vice-president of the club. You can find an outline of the proposed changes and a version of the proposed Club Constitution/Bylaws here:

If you have any questions/comments about the changes, please send a note to or talk with Tim before or during the next meeting.
