Dale was born in Seattle, spent part of his growing up years on a dairy farm near Rochester, Washington and then lived in various places around the state. He spent two years learning cabinet making at L. H. Bates Vocational and Technical School in Tacoma, graduating in 1974, and has worked at this craft ever since. Working with wood as a cabinet maker gave him a head start on carving. He married Laura in 1977 and they have 2 grown daughters and 3 grandchildren.
Goebel's interest in carving came about from seeing carvings on display at the Puyallup Fair and at carving shows. He learned both relief and in-the-round carving and has added to his knowledge with experience and a collection of carving books. Any wood that doesn't have an open grain and isn't too hard is a suitable carving wood. He's carved a wide variety of subjects including flowers, animals, birds, caricatures and a relief dragon. He carves whatever interests him and has no favorite subject. Dale has also combined intarsia with carving and has earned numerous awards and ribbons. He has sold a few carvings but says after he carves them he hates to let them go.
Dale carves with hand tools except for the scroll saw work on projects requiring it and he has used a Dremel tool on golf balls. He finishes carvings with clear lacquers, sometimes using stain or black paint. He likes his wood carvings to look natural and realistic.. Carving is done in his favorite chair in the living room, in a shop and in the cab of his truck during lunch and coffee breaks at work.
He joined NWCA in October of 2001. After attending a few meetings, he volunteered to serve on the steering committee starting in 2003. He and his wife Laura have both pitched in to help with the club and shows as needed. He has served as treasurer for eight years, security chief and gallery layout person for shows,. Laura has served as secretary and as ribbon runner and is a strong club supporter.
