January Meeting

Russ Filbeck will be the inaugural presenter at our new location!


For those who don't know Russ - he is a past President of SDFWA, a retired instructor from the Palomar College CFT program, a master chair maker, multi-award winner at the Design in Wood Exhibition, obviously a very talented woodworker and an all-around great guy. He hobnobs with Presidents, and still has time to visit with us.


Russ will be talking on several subjects, starting with oil finishing softer, fuzzy-fiber woods such as Kauri and Sycamore. He will bring in some new chairs including a musician’s chair and an artist’s stool. He will also be talking about President Carter’s new book about his woodworking and showing a copy of it. For the last 10 years or so, Russ has been working with President Carter making chairs and tables for his charity auctions and has become very close with him. Last year, he gave us a presentation on President Carter’s woodworking. Russ will give a short demonstration of his signature oil finishing techniques.


This should be a great start in our new meeting hall.
