Our next meeting will take place:

Saturday, September 22, 2018
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
at Rockler of Orange (1955 N Tustin St, Orange, CA 92865)

Topic:  Using Reclaimed Woods in Instrument Making

Dennis Hays ( is a full-time "studio furniture" maker, designing and creating one-off and limited production furniture, as well as the occasional guitar.  It was through guitarmaking that Dennis discovered a passion for working with rescued wood, whether found in nature or reclaimed from local "urban forests."

Come join the discussion on sustainable woodworking, as Dennis shares his knowledge about where to look for salvageable wood, which woods are worth reclaiming for guitar work, which locally grown wood species make for wonderful inlay material, and more!  He'll bring examples of his work, along with many of the quality pieces of wood he's prevented from ending up in a landfill over the years.

* Reminder about meetings at Rockler:  Please look for street parking, and enter through the side door, in consideration of Rockler's customers.  Thanks for your cooperation!
