THE DAILY RIDGE: 44th Annual Pioneer Days Shows Canoe Building, Woodturning, And Other Historical Demonstrations by James Coulter (10/29/2019)

Woodturners of Polk County is a local organization that meets once a month to create their own projects and share their crafts with others. They often demonstrate their abilities at various events throughout the county such as the state fair.
