The Cedar Valley Woodcarvers
Welcome you to our web site!
Due to Time Check Recreation Center being damaged in the flood, we are meeting at American Legion Post 298 in Marion. 
February 7 and 8 Woodcarving Show.

Thanks to everyone that participated in showing their art, worked in any capacity in helping us, attended and a special thanks to our judges: Art Mann, Harold Rosauer and Rick Frels, and to Larry and Carol Yudis for bringing their shop to provide quality goods at a good price, and for their friendship to carving in general.  Thanks also to the staff and management of the Longbranch hotel and convention center for providing such great service.

We're just a good ol' bunch of girls and guys (ok, geezers and geezettes) that like to get together and make pieces of wood into smaller pieces of wood.
Some of our art is just phenominal!
Our club collage is kinda cool!
