General Meeting : September 2023

Club President, Ken Rummer, will be presenting the program on a furniture project he built with his wife during COVID: a pair of matching nightstands in black walnut

Thoughts on design, the usefulness of mockups, working with Soss hinges, keeping track of multiple parts, a no-catch door latch from rare earth magnets, “floating” joints from machine screws and copper tubing, and more. Come for the pictures. Stay to see the nightstands up close.

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.
