Peter is a BFA graduate of Iowa State University's Studio Furniture program and today produces custom furniture and has taught classes for the DMWWA. He joined the Des Moines Woodworkers Association in 2015 and has served the DMWA as Program Chair since 2019.


Our new 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.
