Roger Burrey was an artist, but his canvas was a block of wood.
He crafted chess sets, furniture, clocks and toys from wood and when he was done with his creations, often gave them away to friends and family, said his widow, Carol Burrey of Mount Victory.
During a visit to the Burrey home, Carol’s sister, Connie Ulrich, noticed a tiger Roger had made by inlaying various colored wood pieces and she suggested perhaps the public would enjoy seeing Roger’s handiwork.
That opportunity is now a reality at the Sullivan-Johnson Museum, where a variety of gifts from Roger have been gathered from throughout the nation and made available over the next two months.
Roger was also a teacher and shared his love of woodworking with students in industrial arts classes at Mount Victory, Riverdale, Kenton, Delphos Jefferson and retired from Ridgemont High School. He hired some of his students to help him construct buildings, including his own home, which he built and designed.
The exhibit features a collection of wooden rolling pins created by Roger and is open through the end of July at the museum, located at 223 N. Main St., Kenton. The museum is open Tuesday through Friday 1 – 4 p.m. and admission is free.
