A Trip to Warther’s Museum

Friday Ride Series

John and Randy visited Warther’s Museum in Dover Ohio. The craftsmanship was absolutely incredible. Warther being a World Master Carver also was a mathematical genius. His works have been deemed priceless by the Smithsonian Museum. He was a great admirer of President Abraham Lincoln which inspired many of his train carvings related to Lincoln’s Funeral trains and engines. He is most notably know for his carving of 571 pliers out of a single block of wood. His wooden pliers are legendary. 

Lunch at Pangrazio’s in Denison provided great pizza.
