Timber Framing Demonstration by Bob

Our Shop Tour for August will be at the home of member Bob Hoellwarth.

His homemade yard fixtures include a May pole, benches, raised planters, fences, and gates. Bob will show us that it is possible to have a fully functional workshop utilizing only a 10x12 shed and an open yard. Bob plans to give us a hands-on demonstration of timber framing or other challenging construction technique.

At Noon, Phil served a light lunch to the first 25-30 members to RSVP via email at pdun@comcast.net. The attendees at last year’s event report that Phil is a pretty good cook. Salads and sandwiches were served this time.

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.
