Dennis has been a commercial photographer for 40 years and counting. He's photographed for Woodsmith, Shopnotes, and Workbench magazines, as well as other titles. And he worked behind the scenes on The Woodsmith Shop TV show.

The past 5 years he's been working at the Woodsmith Store. He's been a woodworker since 1973 as a senior in high school, but he didn’t really get going until 1990 when we bought his first house, and then even more so in 2004 when he started at August Home Publishing.

Dennis will be giving away some epoxy-related prizes as well!

Our venue, the Fred Maytag II Scout Center, is located at 6123 Scout Trail in Des Moines, off of SW 63rd just South of Park Ave and just West of the Des Moines Airport grounds. If you've been involved with the Des Moines Wood Turners (or the Boy Scouts recently) you may already be familiar with the location.

Enter through the main doors. Parking is somewhat limited near the doors, so if you have good mobility, please consider parking further from the entry to help others.

Doors open at 6:45pm for social time, and the meeting will begin at 7pm. Give yourself extra time to find your way in to our new meeting place if you haven't been over yet.
