    Cindy Drozda demo today

    What an amazing day! Cindy Drozda's full day demo was today. This lady is determined and committed to giving her audience their the best experience possible. Her attention to detail is ridiculous and her preparation is meticulous. She turned an elegant little finial box which she later presented to the club. She didn't make a cut without explaining what she was doing, why she was doing it, and how she was doing it. I highly recommend hosting her if you belong to a club. You won't be disappointed. Incidentally, the little inset in the underside of the lid is a diamond stud earring. She believes when someone picks up the lid they should have a nice surprise. She was also kind enough to offer her thoughts and suggestions on several members pieces. It really was a great day and I learned a lot. Tomorrow will be better as I and eight other members are doing a hands on day with her. Steve

    HEY PEOPLE!!!

    Welcome Terry, I think some of these guys must be retired cops, with all the talk about donuts. I just joined and I think it's like an initiation thing. All in good fun.

    Another surgery done

    I had surgery on my other knee on Nov 2. Had another partial knee replacement done. Dr. said I was walking bone on bone. After what I know about getting the other knee replaced. I know this one is going to take a bit longer to recover from. The pain is starting to calm alittle bit. At least I'm not taking pain pills every 4 hours now. Maybe every 7 to 8. I don't like taking pain pills but I needed them this time. Again I had a bunch of very nice nurses. Therapy starts Tuesday. Actually I can't wait till Tuesday. I know I need it. Just doing my home therapy right now. Hopefully I'll be able to check out the forum alittle more now that I'm laid up for awhile.

    A project in Poplar

    Roh-Kay....cleaned the corners up.. Then planed the top and bottom edges. Laid out a bead line... Need to mill two beads below this line, all the way around the box. First, I need to change a few parts out, on the Stanley 45 #13 cutter was removed, as was the short rods.....added the long rods and a #23 bead cutter.. As these has a bit more reach to them...got things all set up.. Then set the fence. And away we go... Was trying out the depth stop, to keep from going to deep on the end.. I cut the beads on the ends first, then the long sides. Once I went all the way around with a single bead, I could reset the fence to cut a second bead... Once the second bead was done, time to get out a saw.. Just to the top of the bead. Cut at a 45 degree.....on two corners. Fun part was connecting the two saw cuts.. Made a plunge cut. Sabre saw comes in rather handy for that. Hand saw to finish the cuts.. Then, I could size the lid's panel, and cut the rebates all the way around. Once the panel was able to slide in and out easy enough, I glued the "handle " on... Soooo, while watching glue dry..I figured I could clean the floor, again.. Messy floor.....but, welcome to my world.. Just a small workshop... Need to figure out what finish for the box....maybe a handle or two? Stay tuned, almost done.

    Change your time zone...

    December the 21st starts the days getting longer again. Benjamin Frankin, the Father of DST? Many sources also credit Benjamin Franklin with being the first to suggest seasonal time change. However, the idea voiced by the American inventor and politician in 1784 can hardly be described as fundamental for the development of modern DST. After all, it did not even involve turning the clocks. In a letter to the editor of the Journal of Paris, which was entitled “An Economical Project for Diminishing the Cost of Light”' ****************Franklin simply suggested that Parisians could economize candle usage by getting people out of bed earlier in the morning. What's more: Franklin meant it as a joke.******************* Pretty moot today since every room you go into a light that someone left on is burning no matter the time of day.

    New ornament

    I started this one a few weeks ago and got sidetracked on other projects. I like to embellish the wood color with contrasting woods and ornamental things. It is not as large as it appears and is about 5" total length. Another Christmas gift

    Daylight Savings Time Change

    For years most of Indiana remained on Standard Time, then a bunch of politicians thought it would be best for commerce to observe DST. Only a politician could think you can save time or daylight by altering a clock. I always thought daylight went from sun-up to sun-down regardless of what the clock indicates.

    Change your time zone...

    I rolled on the floor laughing the other day. Some poor millennial reporter credited "President Benjamin Franklin", in a major newspapers' article, for enacting DST. I can see her going real far towards a Pulitzer Prize in journalism!

    Thank You Patriot Woodworker's

    I just wanted to say thank you all for being here. You don't have to, but you are. As I was going through a few things this morning, general maintenance and house cleaning here on TPW, I thought how patient you all are with our seemingly ever upgrades and troubleshooting and making good on error reports etc. We are not perfect, we don't have an IT department like our wonderful big online retailers with their forums have. We are truly organic and grass roots in every sense. With that comes issues, many caused by software glitches, and some even caused by yours truly, due to my ignorance. But you all stick with it, and you are all so patient. So, just wanted to say again, THANK YOU! Peace and good times to all

    Daylight Savings Time Change

    This has always messed me up. Especially after my wife's parents moved to Yuma Arizona 21 years ago where they do not have Daylight Savings Time. We would always get calls from my wife's mom to us in California either too early in the morning or too late at night waking us up.

    A project in Poplar

    Glue has dried on the lid, lid has been "fitted" You can just saw a saw cut.....open the lid? How about a view from the side? May add some Walnut trim pieces.....box IS rather plain looking.....leave it sit too long.. Something always gets in the way... One other "PIP" to show off. Was taken about this time of year..... Back in 1954, that is. Dad, his pipe, and me.....about 17 months old....

    Daylight Savings Time Change

    So as usual my wife and I woke up at our normal body/brain clock time of 545am. Which means with the time changing back it was 445am. So our Miniature Schnauzer named Sylar (our kids named him after a bad guy in a comic book) was scratching on the door letting me know that he wants his breakfast. So I fed Sylar and then changed all the clocks in the house and went back to bed. Sylar finished his food and wants to play while I am online checking the news. Oh well...gotta love that time change.

    Stick's password is easy to hack. He loves to use phrases. It only took my five minutes to break in using the phrase, I HOG ALL OF THE DOUGHNUTS (all caps).

    HEY PEOPLE!!!

    No, no, no, Terry! DO NOT EVER give the doughnuts and especially my pie and ice cream (I prefer deep dish apple) to Stick. NOBODY will ever see a crumb. At least some of the others will share the doughnuts, but not Stick; that is an insight into his character! He never sleeps so, he always seems to be the first one to the trough...never anything left. With all of that said, welcome to the funfest... Bill (aka Schnooge)

    corner cabinet layout

    One nice thing about this design was that the back was flat and didn't go back into the corner. Not as much space in the closet but it pretty much avoided the non-square corner problem

    So should I add, subtract, divide or multiply toward the 2K goal or... just assume this was some sort of Russian alien spam hacking backed by nefarious donut racketeers... attempting to inflate, dominate and monopolize the global donut distribution kingdom?

    I'm glad it's helping. wife's experience with steroid shots was that the pain comes back in less than a month. She eventually had the knee replaced...which she was advised to do well before the steroid shots. Stubborn old bat.

    Gene she says the shot was not something special, was just in the exact spot it needed to be. Steroid and Lidocaine, the spell check tried to steer me on to Novocaine but her being an RN I put down what she told me to. Anti inflammatory and numbing drug. Like I said before, I got the same treatment but was with a different doctor! Probably her doctor had better eyesight. Or could could turn on the switch better?

    A project in Poplar

    Roh-kay, Raggy.... Glue has been spread, clamps applied... 5 clamps? Because I ran out....need to buy a few more, sometime... Let this set a day, or so. Then the corners get cleaned up, and spiffy. Beads need to be run around the sides...and a couple saw cuts made,... . And need to cut some leftovers down to size.. To make a sliding lid for the top. Beads to hide where the slider comes out at. Panel is Poplar, looks a bit better than just plain old plywood. Not sure about a finish, just yet. Stay tuned ( King Biscuit Flour Hour, 800 on you am radio dial..CKLW)

    There is a setting within the router system itself (on mine) that allows me to lock out any device not already connected. Not prefect, nothing is, but it gives another layer of protection.

    I get the privilege of watching someone else cut today. Time for the monthly... (+or-)... ear lowering....if I can remember where his shop is. That's a 35 mile round trip. If I play my cards right, I might get some great Carne Asada for lunch and still get back in time for some shop time....or a nap.
