Dennis Keeling is one of the few segmenters in the UK - turners that specialise in segmented turning. He has been turning since he was 9 years old. However, after a lapse of many years he only started turning again in 1995. He started to specialise in segmented turning after spending a week with Bud Latven in 2003 and started to experiment with open segment turning in 2004 after meeting Jerry Bennett.

He is a Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Turners, and a Freeman of the City of London. He is also a Director of the Association of Segmented Wood Turners, and a member of the Association of Woodturners in GB (AWGB), the Middlesex Woodturners Association (MWA), the Society of Ornamental Turners (SOT), and the American Association of Woodturners (AAW).

Dennis Keeling has won many awards for his work at various international competitions including: The Worshipful Company of Turners; The International Woodworking Exhibition, Alexandra Palace; and Woodex, Kenilworth.

He undertakes demonstrations on segmented turning techniques both in the UK and USA and presented at the 2nd Segmenting Symposium in Tennessee, USA in November 2010.

Dennis Keeling regularly writes articles for Woodturning magazine and has been commissioned by GMC, the publishers of Woodturning, to write a book on segmented turning. The book entitled 'Segmented Turning - a complete guide' is expected to be published in the Spring of 2012 by GMC and Taunton Press in the USA.
