I think everyone enjoyed Alfred's demonstration. While a miniature birdhouse is not a spindle, it does require spindle turning skills. The President's Challenge this month is a spindle turning. This could be a birdhouse, a candle holder etc. Have fun with this project.

Jim Nickless was kind enough to put together a list of available resources for our club library.  Here is a link to Jim's list:  Library List


We are starting a mentoring program for our membership.  If you are willing to help by fielding questions, please get in touch with any of the club officers. 

Don't forget about our special challenge of turning wooden flag holders for our veterans at the Ann Arbor VA hospital.  All bases should have a 3/16" hole to accept the flag.  Lloyd Niederriter brought this need to our attention.  He is shown below holding one of the holders made by our members even though Jim Nickless is now heading the program.
