Duplicating Lathe Craftsmen
Dennis Hofstetter, Tyro Craftsman
A multi-talented craftsman and a highly skilled wood finisher, Dennis Hofstetter has settled in at the duplicating lathe. Beginning his career in stain glass, Hofstetter quickly realized that woodworking was his true passion. “I like seeing the reaction from people when I show them the pieces. It is a labor of love that I put into each item I make,” Dennis says. He also enjoys working with people, often saying it takes a “people person” to work with wood. Dennis also adds that he has found a valuable friendship in the Silver Dollar City craftsmen community.
