"Your Help is Wanted"

Ben Tanis is asking for some help with his personal project of having elementary school kids learning about woodworking. This year he is going to have them build (assemble) bird houses. He needs some help making the parts for about 250 houses and he has it all set up in his shop so all you have to do is show up and he'll put you to work. Please contact him for more information and to sign up.

Email Requests

4/10/16 From Glenn Hall

I have most of the parts to make a 36 in. J.A. Fay and Eagan band saw. It is time to find it a new home.
In Kalamazoo,
Thanks Glenn
For more detail please email the Web Manager, Mike Cline.

4/11/16 From Michelle Beranek

This might be a stretch but I am looking for somebody that I could hire to make a wedding band out of a piece of walnut tree that I will be getting soon. Do you have any resources or names to recommend? I would certainly pay someone. I'm in the Portage area.
Thanks, Michelle
