Dennis turning a spindleHello my name is Dennis DeVendra.  I am happy that you have come to visit me and my website.  I am a woodturner who is blind.  Some may think it is unusual that a person who is blind would be woodturning.  I believe that everyone should follow their passion despite the challenges.

This website is an introduction to my wood turning method, my teaching, notable events and publications, as well as pieces I have shown and pieces I sell.

It is also an introduction to my work as a motivational speaker.  I believe we all have the power inside ourselves to overcome challenges as we pursue our goals and dreams.

For a little more about me, be sure to check out the July 2, 2014 episode of WOSU’s series Broad & High.

Please feel free to look around and provide feedback.
