Carve a Pumpkin Kendama Toy Ball

Fixings for a modified Kendama toy will be available for a couple of dollars at the September meeting of the South Dakota Woodcarvers, Inc.  Carving and painting the rough turned ball to resemble a pumpkin  or jack 'o lantern will be an easy task, but once the toy is assembled,
preforming the tricks might best be left to the kids or grand kids.

Jerry Schillerstrom

Former member and president of South Dakota Woodcarvers, Inc. passed away last week, Feb. 22.   He was a gifted wood carver, creating unique reliefs in black walnut and excellent wildlife carvings. He served as president in 1987 to 1989, and in recent years our club has missed his regular and enthusiastic attendance at our meetings.
