General Meeting : May 2023

The May general meeting will be held on May 18th.

Join us for our May General Members Meeting and a presentation from Andy Klindt. Andy is a chain-saw sculptor, tool maker, and kitchen carver. Andy’s presentation will introduce us to the fun of spoon carving!

Bring your project for Show and Tell. We’ll be drawing for door prizes from the Show and Tell entries.

Look over the library offerings at the meeting. You can also go the library tab on the club website and order a book or two to pick up at the meeting.

And, of course, look forward to coffee and cookies, and talking woodworking with friends old and new.


May will be our last regular program until September, but we hope to make an announcement about summer field trips and classes before then!

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.
