Well, let me be the last to wish you a Happy New Year. Hopefully 2014 didn't find you looking like this old guy although, like me; you may have woken up feeling this way a time or two!
Our presenter this month is Tim Mahoney and he will be sharing his version of the famous Sam Maloof chair. He has spent many months learning how to create the complicated joinery and sculpted forms of this chair. For his presentation Tim will be bringing in a mock up of the joint as well as the tools and jigs required to accomplish building this iconic chair.
In addition to his furniture work, Tim also does inlay work and builds musical instruments -- he may be bringing in some of that to share with us as well. If you take a look at his WEBSITE you'll learn more about him. As someone who grew up in the California delta I love his blog posts about the 1965 Chris Craft boat he restored, now that's a beautiful example of woodworking!
In any case, our meeting will begin at 7:00 pm and last until 9:00 or so depending on how talkative we are at the beginning of this New Year.
See you there -- John
