    From My Shop to Yours

    We had a good time. Saturday was our big day. Our family(s) are too big and spread out to get together in one day. Here are just a few of the images I managed to capture. Yeah, the grandkids had a good time. Thank goodness for some decent weather...and no rain! Our kids and their kids.

    Good Monday Morning! Good Monday Patriot Woodworkers! What did you get done over the weekend, and what have you planned for the week ahead! Inquiring minds want to know. Please tell us what's happening in your shops, your life, and any events going on with you. Thank you for being here folks! Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas to all Patriot Woodworkers and guests alike. So, here we are, a day after Christmas and I completely forgot to get our Monday topic live, as I do weekly. I also did not get our Monday topic up the last two weeks as I have been very ill, I have finally dug out of the flu fog the last few days and I actually felt great for Christmas. I'd like to say thank you to all for being here, and sharing your lives and shops with us, we are forever grateful for the folks who keep our forums live and interesting. And we hope you all have a very Merry Christmas! Under the Christmas Tree So Patriot Woodworkers, what did you all get under the tree this Christmas, I'll go ahead and kick it off! My family purchased this wonderful restored fully usable set and sharpened Warranted Superior saw for me, this is a beaut! I love it. They also presented me with this wonderful old book all about North American woods and trees, and their use in the trades and crafts woodworking industry. I love these old books, I use them as a resource for our Patriot Woodwiki that we have been building, and the family knows I love to read these books. I can't get enough of them. This books was copyright is 1951 and it is still viable today, why wouldn't it be, trees have not changed in the last 60 years have they? The book is called American Woods, and was written by Shelley E. Schoonover (Regional Fiscal Agent (retired) United States Forest Service). So that was my haul of the day, what did Santa bring you all!

    Mother Nature sure give me a Christmas present and she didn't even put a nice red bow on it. We got about 4"--5" of snow and I got to go out and push that white stuff around and then clear a spot for the dogs. O well all in a day of the spirit of Christmas. Merry Christmas Everyone!!!!

    For My Son

    Sometime last summer, my son found and remembered a saying that he found. Told me it would make a great plaque. Being that he was a paratrooper and jumped into Panama and led the French on their "end run" into Iraq during Desert Storm, I had to do something special that was just for him. This plaque is the finished project. Oh, yeh, the jump wings - - before we did our 14,500 foot jump a couple af years ago, he placed a bag in my pocket and told me to give it back to him after we jumped. In the bag was his jump wings and his comment was "I jumped with these wings and now you have jumped with my wings. The patch on the plaque are those wings. Thought it would make it very special to the both of us. Anyhow, sorry for my ramblings, here's the picture. From flying, to jumping, to fighting on the ground. Got it all covered. Merry Christmas, son.

    i thought she could just throw whatever she was knitting or crotchetting into the bowl and snap it down so my grandson can't get ahold of it.

    You can buy painter pyramids Or you can make your own. Waiting to try these out. Some scrap melamine MDF and a few biscuits Keeps the project off the table and allows staining or finishing without sticking to the table top or paper. If the back side of something needs finishes and might not be super critical, you can do both sides at once. For example, put these in the hinge holes and pull/knob holes after you've put finish on the back, then do the front and edges.

    Inner Strength If you can start the day without caffeine or pep pills, If you can be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains, If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,If you can eat the same food everyday and be grateful for it, If you can understand when loved ones are too busy to give you time,If you can overlook when people take things out on you when,through no fault of yours, something goes wrong, If you can take criticism and blame without resentment, If you can face the world without lies and deceit, If you can conquer tension without medical help, If you can relax without liquor, If you can sleep without the aid of drugs, If you can do all these things, Then you are probably the family dog.

    For the Dog Lovers

    NOTICE TO PEOPLE THAT VISIT MY HOME.... 1. The dog lives here you don't. 2. If you don't want dog hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture. 3. Yes he has some disgusting habits and so do you. What is your point? 4. OF COURSE HE SMELLS like a dog. What is your point? 5. It's his nature to sniff your crotch. Please feel free to sniff his. 6. I like him a lot better than I like most people. 7. To you he is a dog. To me he is my adopted son, who is short, hairy, walks on all fours, doesn't speak clearly and I do not have a problem with any of these things. 8. Dogs are better than kids: They eat less. Don't ask for money all of the time. Easier to train, hence mind better. Usually comes when called. Never drive the truck or car. Don't hang out with drug-using friends. Don't worry about having the latest fashions. Don't wear my clothes. Don't need a gazzillion dollars for college.

    Mike what are you spraying? If it is lacquer, let dry then Johnson's paste wax with 0000 steel wool. It will make it as slick as a baby's behind....that is, if the behind is not wet, if so, change that diaper! Then if you decide you want more coats Johnsons won't interfere with the lacquer.

    Gene.. and others. India Ink is a wonderful stain, especially on Red Oak. It makes the wood very black, but shows the grain lines very well. Covers well too with Satin wipe-on poly and rubbed out. Larry.
