PREVIOUS MEETING

Chuck CottrilSEPTEMBER 13, 2017 MEETING, PHEC MULTI-PURPOSE ROOM, 7-9 PM.
CHUCK COTTRIL – Dual Presentation:
• Toxicities of Wood
• Creating Bowl Sets from a single piece of wood

Toxicities of Wood Presentation: The presentation on wood toxicity covers various aspects of toxicities found in wood. Why are some people susceptible to certain woods and not others? Why did I have a reaction this time and I have used the same wood many times before? These questions were answered and discussed.

Coring Bowl Sets Presentation: Coring is how you get three or four bowls out of a large chunk of wood on the lathe. The bowls then sit inside each other like a set of bowls you might buy.

Memorial Flag Case Project

Since the 9/11 tragedy, the Diablo Woodworkers have channeled some of their woodworking passion into compassion for the families of fallen firefighters and law enforcement officers - the survivors of those who have given their last full measure in protecting others.

We honor those families with memorial flag cases that have been crafted from California (Claro) walnut and accented with silver maple corner splines. Each case is finished with Danish oil and buffed out to a smooth finish.

These memorial flag cases are provided to all law enforcement and firefighting units in the San Francisco Bay area. We are proud to have worked with over 100 families in the past 10 years and will continue to honor the fallen.

Gordon Fry, 925-685-1676 is the Chairperson for this project. Plans for these flag cases are on our club web site.
