November 20: Caryl Closner
The art of scroll sawing to master works of art!
NOTICE: Starting time delayed 9:45 – door opens at 9:15
Masks required for all people
Caryl began his journey into scroll sawing with a coping saw at the age of 10. At 11 he made a trip to Spillville IA with his mother and grandparents to Bily Clocks Museum and was hooked.
Growing up on the family farm east of Oronoco, serving in the military, returning home to farm and milk cows he found the time to perfect his skill of scroll sawing.
Caryl has his own saw mill and dries all his own wood harvested within a 10 mile area of his home.
Caryl works with Walnut, Oak, Cherry, Maple and other specialty hardwoods. All his pieces are left natural and only clear coated.
The library will also be back.
Return your books & checkout new ones.
