Yes, I love to give tours! I'm open from 10-5 on Tuesday though Saturday. Just like a fancy art gallery, I'm closed on Sundays & Mondays. Otherwise, you will find me here by chance or by appointment so it's best to e-mail or call ahead to arrange a time.
For a preview of what you'll see, here's a link to A KTIV television production about me
Here's a link to an Iowa Public television production about me.
Here's an article about me from the Chicago Tribune.
In the June 10-16, 2012 issue of American Profile you'll read more about me.
They also made a great video of me.
I update often on Facebook & Twitter about what I'm creating if you'd like to come watch. In the unlikely event that I'll be closed, I'll post that here too..

What you'll encounter when you get here.
Pomeroy's a small town, but you can still get lost (at least for a few blocks and a few minutes). If you come into town on highway 4&7 from the north, turn right at the corner after the railroad underpass. If you come from the south, turn left at the corner before you get to the railroad underpass. There's a "business district" and "library" sign there. Head west for 5 blocks. You'll be on 3rd Street. You'll turn right (North) on Main Street. The Tee intersection is 1st street. Make a Louie (local vernacular for U turn) and come back down Main Street to 104 & 106 South Main. The action is in 106 South Main which has "Pomeroy Artisans' Gallery" and "College of Leonard" signs on the front. I'm the gnome in the window turning wood. If I'm not in the window, stop in anyway and tell me to get back to work. I delight in showing visitors what I do.
Tours are free, but of course, I am exceptionally happy when you buy one of my creations which are for sale in The Pomeroy Artisans' Gallery. The PVC scopes are only $10 each and I love playing with the tourists and showing them all the possibilities with them. The bus tours who stop in love them.
Make sure you bring your camera! Take all the pictures & videos you'd like.

In 2012 I had visitors from 32 States and 11 foriegn countries. Thanks to the Iowa Tourism guide for bringing so many of them here. Here's a link to the 2013 guide.
