NEXT SHOP TOUR/SAWDUST SESSION DEMO DETAIL



Christine LoehrleinSaturday, Jul 18th at 10:00 a.m. - Noon.

This is a Virtual meeting Hosted by Christine Loehrlein.

Christine Loehrlein is a retired biochemist. Soon after moving to Alameda a little over 20 years ago, she decided to pursue a long-time dream of learning woodworking. She took several classes over the course of one summer at The Alameda Woodworker Academy, located in back of The Japan Woodworker, less than a mile down the street from where she lives. But the demands of work at that time pried her away from developing this new interest.

Five years ago Christine retired, and immediately took up the fledgling hobby again, this time with DVWW, taking classes at Pleasant Hill. She’s had the great benefit of learning woodworking as a fine craft from the skilled teachers and many of the very experienced students there. One of those instructors, Brian Condran, who is a two year graduate of the Krenov School in Fort Bragg, introduced her to that school – its history, concept, and feel – and encouraged her to pursue it. She applied to and was accepted into the program for this past school year, and got as far as she could before the forces of nature changed the trajectory of everything we know.

Before going to the Krenov School, she had been converting her garage into a woodworking shop. She lives in a historic Craftsman style home that is over 100 years old, so creating this shop came with some significant challenges. On the tour, Christine will show you the 1st project she made at the Krenov School, progress on her 2nd project, some of the jigs and fixtures she made at the school, and share with you many of the “charms” of an older home that created some unique features of her shop.

Saturday, July 18th at 10:00 a.m. is our next virtual shop tour . You can tune in as early as 9:30. Here is the link - Join Zoom Meeting: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89449237917?pwd=TXd0RWNLQUNIWS95S0NrTDJFWFh3QT09

PREVIOUS MEETING

Jarrod DahlWednesday, June 10th virtual meeting, at 7:00 p.m.,
Featured by Jarrod Dahl.

The speaker showed a slide presentation of sharing his knowledge about the history, tools, and techniques of green woodworking, including wood preparation, spoon carving, shrink pots, and pole lathe turning as well as highlighted his teachers and some of the important and creative green woodworkers working today. He showed and discussed his work and interest in some fairly obscure green woodworking projects. There were lots of inspirational photos that he gathered and curated over the years from research in museums, private collections, online, and through foreign travel plus links for further research and exploring green wood projects on your own.

About Jarrod Dahl:
He is a full-time craftsperson, teacher, and writer who has worked with wood professionally since 1996. With help from his wife and an assistant, he designs, makes, and sells fine domestic woodenware on his website, woodspirithandcraft.com. He specializes in turning green wood into handled cups, bowls, plates, and boxes using a foot-powered lathe, a Japanese-style electric lathe, and a Western electric lathe. He is also an accomplished spoon carver who makes a wide variety of knife-finished cooking and eating utensils. Jarrod teaches handcraft nationally and internationally as well as trains apprentices. He has studied and researched woodenware in museum archives in the US, Sweden, UK, and Japan which has been an influential part of his design inspiration. Jarrod has extensive knowledge of harvesting and processing natural materials, forging and using hand tools, and making a wide variety of craft from basketry to canoes. He takes a philosophical, historical and pragmatic approach to making, teaching, and advocating for handcraft. Jarrod writes a blog, and has written for Popular Woodworking and Mortise & Tenon magazines. He made two DVDs, The Art of Spoon Carving and One Tree about green woodworking recorded in Japan. He also has a forthcoming book with Lost Art Press on spring pole lathe turning.

- 12 foot Skiff, The wood is marine grade Douglas Fir plywood $300 for 2-1/4" sheets and 2-3/8" sheets and the cleats and sheers are Mahogany. After I get the stitches in and tightened the seams will get epoxy putty fillets of resin, hardner, micro balloons and silica plus 2 layers of biaxial fiberglass cloth and the exterior will get completely covered in fiberglass cloth. This is my 3rd wood boat build and I enjoy the build process and look forward to chasing Sacramento and Mokelumne river salmon with her this fall. The plans are the Glen-L RowMe https://www.glen-l.com/.

- I “carved” these matching cherry wood spoons a few years ago, but never brought them to a show and tell. They were roughed out on the bandsaw followed by lots of sanding and carving of the face side to create a bowl in the spoon end. They can serve as salad tongs or stirring sticks. The notch in the side allows you to rest them on the pot rim.

- End Table - A friend of mine’s father who was a woodworker, acquired this round decades ago. My friend, who does some woodworking did not know what to do with it. He gave it to me. It was rough so no one knew what the grain would look like. Now it is time to return it to my friend’s family.

Doug Sleeter

- Well, I finally finished adding a router table to the right-side wing on my Sawstop. Here are the photos. Still have to build the fence dust collection apparatus, but everything else it done. I put in the Inca router lifter and the sawstop dust collection box below. Was quite a project. I used the metal brackets from my Bench Dog mini-router-table. It provided me with leveling screws from the bottom of the bracket, so I don’t need to use the leveling screws on the lifter unit. I just put the screw inserts in to plug it in.

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;
