  3. Ive been a bit under the weather this week so today is my first day working in the shop. Yep, I am now officially way, way behind. But I'll get things done as I can and not spend a lot of time worrying about it. Today I am working on a Pistol Shadow box that I've got to ship to Michigan this week so it is there for a presentation on Wednesday night. I know, I am under the "gun". I'll get it sprayed tomorrow and then install the glass and get it boxed up and ready to go. Almost there! This box is going to house an antique pistol that will be presented on Wednesday night. I'm also working on a pair of grips for a SIG SAUER P380 made of Purple Heart. They are cut out and drilled, just got to do a little shaping and then using the laser engraver put SIG SAUER on one side and the customers Initials on the other side in the same font and the same slop as the SIG logo. I will probably be working on those Sunday afternoon. No deadline on them so I can take my time. I also got a new Glock 19, Gen 5 the other day after the reveal at our range. I really like it and shoots very well. This was my first 50 rounds put through the gun at 10 yards. Probably going to catch a little College football Saturday, RTR! So that is what I'm working on right now, what about you, what's on your Patriot Woodworker agenda this weekend? We love to see and hear about all the projects you are working on. Post those pictures and share your projects with us. Have a fun and safe weekend whatever you are doing.
  4. Here we are another Friday and another hurricane bearing down on part of the country. Let' be praying for those in the path and hope they are get to safety. We we had a nice mini vacation to the smoky mountains last weekend. First time in the mountains for my 11 year old granddaughter. We saw a bear in Cades Cove and she was so excited she forgot to push the button on the camera to take a picture. Instead of buck dealer it was bear fever. Well this week I got a batch of cutting boards ready for the final sander and mineral oil soaking. I'll be bringing a load of Poplar from the wood stash tomorrow for a table I'm working on. I have a few other projects in the queue but not sure how far I will get. I've got spend some time with John Deere at some point this weekend. So how about you all, what's on your agenda this weekend?

  8. Last week sorta got away from me and we had an outdoor show on Friday evening. As usual the weather was iffy on rain but the forecast was for it to be gone by 5:00. So we thought we had it made but about 7:00 pm, while I'm doing a credit card sale, the bottom falls out. It rained so hard everything we had got soaked, including my iPad, which actually worked after we got it dry. So we spent last weekend and the first of the week drying out everything. Rain drops make spots on the cutting boards so we have been sanding and re-oiling. I also also finished and finally got my order of figure 8's to attaché the top to the Cherry and Maple tables I had been working on. Today they shipped out to MA. and should arrive on Wednesday. The Cherry really came out often the clear finish was sprayed on. Now it is on to other jobs and more work. I also attended a Smith & Wesson school last week and I'm now a certified Armorer for the M&P's. Thats about it for my shop right now, what's on you agenda? I along with everyone here love to see your projects and hear about the process, so post those pictures and share with us you weekend agenda.

Featured image of the week With an age of 4847 years, Methuselah the ancient Great Basin bristlecone pine tree has the honor of being Earth’s oldest non-clonal organism. The tree is located in the White Mountains of Inyo County, Eastern California, but its exact physical location is kept confidential to protect it from people. In 1964, a researcher with the consent of U.S. Forest Service, chopped down a tree which was around 4900 years old (named Prometheus). At present, we can still visit the grove of the ancient bristlecone pine tree forest but can we identify which tree is Methuselah? Source: http://www.wondersify.com/oldest-trees-world/

  14. After vacation I got home and it seemed everything I touched broke. Started to cut the grass and the mower wouldn't run, got out the weed wacker and it wouldn't crank, and then the AC stopped. So needless to say I got behind a little bit getting everything back up and running. Today I worked on building two small round Cherry tables. I got the panel glued for the two tops. and the blanks make fir the legs legs and got the mortises cut in all the legs. And I have the pieces cut for the stretchers and need to cut the tenons. Everthing will be ready for finish tomorrow. What's on your agenda this weekend. We all love to hear about your projects and see the pictures.

Since we already know what it is, there is a specific question regarding this saw. What we are looking for is a specific answer to the following question. "I picked up this old Disston at a yard sale and I can't find anything like it.....it has a copper blade. It is magnetic, so I assume it's copper coated. Do you have any information on why a saw would be copper? Should I sand it to find the etching?"

We will close our community for a short while, and we'll perform the upgrade late at night. The CNC Forums are roaring along fine, thank you CNC people!

  18. For the past week, Ron and I along with our wives have been relaxing just outside Gatlinburg, Tn in the Smokie Mountains. What a relaxing time we have had. Each morning waking up to a wonderful view. We also have a local Black Bear that has residence here close to the house where we are staying. He seems to pay us a visit in the mornings between 7:00 and 8:00 and we have yet to see him with our own eyes. We have gotten the pictures off the security cameras and we have been sitting only feet away in the house and didn't notice him. He decided to check out my truck bed the other morning. Here are his mudding paw marks and he did no damage to my vehicle. Then he wonders off around the house un-noticed by us. Ron and I took a little time the other day at the indoor shooting range here. After I shot a couple of mags we sited in his AR-15. Other than a lot of relaxing and riding through the mountains that has been about it for us. We will head out for home on Sunday so not shop time for us this weekend. What about you all, what's on your agenda for this weekend?

I worked a little on a walnut vanity for our half bath area, it's turning out pretty nice, I'll get some images up soon. Beyond that we had a pretty laid back weekend. It's getting hot in our region! We are breaking 100 degrees now, and I gotta work in that stuff in my day job, YIKES! Today we'll be in the desert where temps are going to be in the 114 degree range, lots of water, and a careful eye out for each other on our survey crew today for sure. So with that, I/we look forward to hearing what you all have planned! Image of the week By DANIEL KAPLAN [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons THE FIRST CARPENTER'S WORKSHOP IN KFAR SABA.

  23. Happy Father's Day weekend to you all. Looks like I'll be moving lumber most of tomorrow, picking up a load of cedar to do two Green Egg Tables before the 4th. Today after getting off work at the shooting range we finished the light sanding of the live edge shelves for the customer with the desk. I finishing the legs for a walnut desk for the manager at the range this weekend also. Sunday I plan on a little R&R and maybe a little shooting time without working, although today I did get in around 250 rounds. So so what is on your agend for this Father's Day weekend? We all love hearing about your projects and plans so share them. I want to wish all the Fathers on here a great day. I hope you have an awesome weekend.

  25. I finished finishing the drop leaf table this week and got it delivered. The table is just over 100 years old and had been painted white. Got all the paint off and applied a Standard Brown Walnut dye then sprayed a couple of coats of Shellac and then four coats of General Finishes Enduro-Var. i didnt assemble it because the where picking it up in a car. As for my weekend end there will be a little time with John Deere, stacking some lumber and then picking up a load of Red Elm. I hope to get a little shop time in but I my be at the barn stacking lumber all weekend with the donkeys. So so what is on your agenda? We love to see your projects and hear about your weekend plans. Post those pictures and share with us your projects. Whatever you do this weekend have fun and be safe!!
