PREVIOUS MEETING

Wednesday, October 14th virtual ZOOM meeting, at 7:00 p.m.,

John SpiveyOur speaker was John Spivey on the creative process of designing and building beautiful furniture - from soil through wood into a functional sculpture. Spivey's design inspiration lies in the flow of lines within Zen calligraphy and painting. John shared stories about where he draws design inspiration, such as a 94 -year old Japanese woman calligraphy teacher who was the daughter of Emperor Meiji, or how he had a brief encounter with Sam Maloof that helped get him going on his own work.

John Spivey is a studio furniture maker who lives in Santa Barbara, California. His work is executed in North American hardwoods--primarily walnut, maple, and cherry. Much of the work utilizes flitch cut boards that he buys in sets in order to match color and grain throughout a project.

When people decide to work with John, they’re making a choice to not just buy a piece of furniture but enter into a relationship, a relationship between the tree, maker, and client.

- Hayrake Table; Reclaimed redwood 4x4s were used for everything but the curved end cap and the tabletop (had to use lumber yard 2x6s for these). The mismatched colors of the different-aged redwood led me down the path of trying to figure out how to use transtint dyes (for the much lighter end caps and top).

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.


09/08/2019

As you all know, the Diablo Woodworkers provide a terrific community service program,
The Memorial Flag Case, for fallen first responders. Our program reaches out to the men, and woman, who have died in the line of duty. We have been involved in this program, since 911, when our club and many other wood clubs accross the USA, provided over 3000 memorial
flag cases to those who were killed at that disaster.
Well, our supply of flag cases, that we keep on hand, has been depleted, and as the coordinator of this program, needed to make up more cases. I was able to get a great team together, who I want to thank for their expert support.
We spent 3 1/2 days to build, and, what a great job, they did !!!.

 Thanks to;
