Suggestions for programs are always welcome.

Meetings also include time for questions, help from other woodworkers, and sharing of accomplishments (Woodworker’s Show and Tell).

There is also a “sub-group” of carvers who hold an additional monthly gathering with “hands-on” sessions focusing on carving techniques, sharpening, design, and painting.

Upcoming Meeting:

Making Native American Flute

Wednesday, March. 15, 2023 @ 7:00pm

Presented By: Jim Wilsing

James Wilsing is a musician and woodworker from Sheboygan, Wisconsin. He has combined two of his passion, music and woodworking to make flutes and work on bagpipes. In our March meeting, Jim will tell us how he got into making Native American flutes and explain how they are made. This will be an opportunity to learn about woodworking
in a different perspective.

These pictures are of a similar “drone” flute, ie, 2 flutes in one.
