Dave Keele holds a beautiful, intricate rose he carved by hand from wood, during a wood-carving class at the Central Crossing Senior Center in Shell Knob. One rose is about a 40-hour project, Keele said, who is one of the co-founders of the group, along with Mike Twidwell, president of Creative Arts of Shell Knob (CASK). Keele has been a guest carver at Silver Dollar City, and has been carving since about 1980. The group started about two years ago and is open to anyone, regardless of skill.
