Duane "Duke" Torpy

 

Featured Show November 2013- Craftsman "Duke" Torpy


      Duane "Duke" Torpy was born and raised in the Allegheny Mountains of northern Pennsylvania. He served in the US military and thereafter came west to Montana and North Dakota. He worked in the electrical trades and construction before a 33-year career with Montana-Dakota Utilities (MDU).

     Duke always enjoyed working with wood. He started by refinishing some antiques, then moved on to designing and building some small furniture items. Eventually he tried his hand at using a scroll saw and discovered a way to create art pieces of extreme and intricate detail.

     He now enjoys creating many kinds of scroll saw artwork suitable for framing, including wildlife, scenery, old barns and western and religious themes. He also found an interest in carving and finishing walking sticks and canes from diamond willow, juniper and choke cherry trees.
