Carl Lester, Wood/Metal

Raised in Illinois and educated in the Midwest, Carl pursued a career in medicine. After two years in the air force, he came to Marshalltown to practice orthopedic surgery. Woodturning became a passion after his retirement. He loves to experiment with interesting and exotic wood as well as acrylics.

Carl generously donates his consignment income to area non-profits, such as the Marshall County Arts & Culture Alliance.
