Dennis working at his latheI’m Dennis DeVendra, I’m a woodturner and I’m blind.

Woodturning is a wonderful craft, but it is not for the faint at heart. It involves using really sharp tools to cut objects spinning at extremely high speeds. Some might find it unusual for a person who is blind to want to turn wood. I don’t think so at all. Turning wood involves more senses than sight. The unique method for turning I have developed highlights touch and sound… and a well organized workshop.

This website is an introduction to my wood turning method, my teaching, notable events and publications, as well as pieces have shown and pieces I sell. It is also an introduction to Dennis DeVendra, the motivational speaker who has a powerful message to inspire others to overcome obstacles as they pursue their dreams.
