Please tell us what's happening in your shops, your life, and any events going on with you. Thank you for being here folks! Personal update: I think I quite woodworking, seems I cannot get back in the shop these days, this is the longest dry spell I have ever had (no woodworking since August). Between home repairs for our VA refinance (done) and medical emergencies, and visiting loved ones in the hospital, and just a whole host of things that I cannot publicly display, I cannot get back to it! Alas, I do have faith! I was able to actually walk out to my shop and organize a tad. It's amazing when a garage/shop is not being used, how much crap builds up on top of woodworking surfaces! Thanks for reading my display of self pity. New members Please welcome the following members to our community. No new members to report on this past week.

  3. A busy week this past week and I don't see a let up until Christmas. I'm thankful for the work and it keeps me busy in the shop. Before retirement this would have been a nice long weekend, but now they are all long weekends. As much as it is nice to get the time in the shop this weekend, let's not forget the purpose of this holiday. A time to remember all our veterans and the price they paid and pay for our freedom. To those of you that have served, thanks you for your service. This week I finished a batch of breadboards. I've got to get busy, I just need 116 more right now. I also finally finished the Oak Cabinet door, got the glass installed, hinges and install on the cabinets at the customers. European hinges for a face frame with 3/4" overlay. She purchased the cabinets at a yard sale and wanted to have doors made so her son's trophies and memorabilia could have a home and not have to be dusted so often. Originally I was going to only make the doors but later she decided she wanted me to stain and finish them. So not they are all done and installed on the cabinets The cabinets will be attached to the wall as soon as they are in place. If you open all four doors at once it will tip forward. I am also trying to finish this weekend the Walnut Island top. The top will be 37 1/2" wide and 87" long and 1 1/2" thick. I am putting it together in four pieces. The last two are in clamps right now. When I get those out in the morning, I will join two of them together and then later I will join the two pieces to make one really large and heavy walnut island top. So that is what's going on in my shop and on my agenda this weekend, what's on your agenda? You know we love to see and hear about all of your projects and woodworking. Share with us your Veterans Weekend Plans. Remember what ever you do this weekend, make sure to work safe.
  4. Happy Veterans Day (11/11) to all veterans everywhere, alive or dead, and to their families and friends. Many thanks for everything you do and have done for us. Lots of celebrations tomorrow and Saturday hat, Army infantry, '68-'70.

  6. Okay I know it’s Saturday morning but my Friday got away from me and I didn’t get my post up. I had been pushing all week to finish inventory for a craft show last night. Friday I was putting the finishing touches on cutting boards and getting everything loaded into the trailer. Today I’m grilling burgers during lunch time at the shooting range for Burgers and Bullets. When I finish there it is home to the shop and work on a Walnut Island top. Sunday afternoon after church I’m shooting in an USPSA event and if there’s anytime left in the day it will be back to the shop and work on the island top. A full weekend for sure, but should be a lot of fun. How about you, What’s on your woodworking agenda this weekend? Love to see all the projects and pictures so share your weekend agenda with us. Whatever you do have fun and make sure to work safe!
  7. Grand Prize We are proud to offer a Woodriver No. 63 Low Angle Jack Plane to this months "What's It" winner. This months "What's It" is sponsored by our supporter Woodcraft Supply. Originally advertised as a plane for heavy stock removal across the grain, the No. 62 has found a home as a smoother and is quite popular among collectors.

It features a body cast from ductile iron, with a bed angle of 12°, a bubinga tote and front knob, and a high-carbon steel blade with a 25° bevel.

  9. October is rapidly coming to an end. This week I’ve been working on completing stock for two upcoming shows. No pictures for you since I’ve already posted them in other post. Cutting boards and bread boards are the biggest thing in the queue right now. Starting tonight my granddaughter that lives with us is celebrating her 12 th Birthday. Any moment now I’m expecting five young girls to join her. I had five of the benches we made for the boys a few weeks back so the girls coming over are building their own bench. We have their initials for the to paint and put on the end of the bench. I will post some pictures of those when they finish them. So right now I’m resting up so I can make the night with them and spend a little time in the shop with them. Everything is cut out so all they will do is put in right pocket screws. So how about you all, what’s on your agenda this weekend before Halloween? Share your projects and plans with us. What ever you do this weekend, be safe!

  11. Volleyball season is now over and I'm getting back on schedule. Last Friday and Saturday brought it to an end as we lost two games in the tournament. By the way, sorry we got all tied up last Friday and I didn't manage to get up a Friday post. I hope it didn't mess up your weekend not having this up. So I finished the Poplar Green Egg smoker table last Saturday and got it picked up and out of the shop. This is for one of the smaller models which is really almost a table top version but they wanted it to sit down in the table so it wouldn't get knocked off and broken. So I did a half shelf and left more open area on the other side. This was one of those I didn't have to finish either as they wanted to put the finish on and i was glad to let them. This week I have cut out some bread boards and almost got this batch finished. Just need to route out the place for the bowl to sit that holds the dipping sauce. I should get those complete Saturday. I also got a batch of cutting boards cut out and cross cut today so I could glue them in the end grain side. I am running a batch of five and will cut out another batch the first of the week. I don't think I posted this but I may have and if so forgive me lost of memory. I posted the picture of the shaper a friend gave me that had surface rust on the top. I was able to get that cleaned off and it is looking pretty good. Now I'll clean the spindle and he is going to come over and give me some tips in running a few pieces. It is setup right now to run raised panel door panels. So that is what is going on around here, what is on your weekend agenda? Love to see and read about all of the projects you are working on so share your weekend plans with us. What ever you are doing this weekend, be safe.

Featured image of the week Source: http://thepatriotwoodwiki.org/Adze The traditional way to use an adze is to straddle the timber or log while holding the adze by its long handle and swing the adze up out in front and center to the users body, then swing the adze down to strike the timber or log. There are many ways to use a long handled adze and various stances or positions for the user to take as the work dictates. The foot adze is most commonly known as a shipbuilder’s or carpenter’s adze. They range in size from 00 to 5 being 3 1/4 to 4 3/4 pounds with the cutting edge 3 inches to 4 1/2 inches wide. On the modern steel adze the cutting edge may be flat for smoothing work to very rounded for hollowing work such as bowls, gutters and canoes. The shoulders or sides of an adze may be curved called a lipped adze, used for notching. The end away from the cutting edge is called the pole and can be of different shapes, generally flat or a pin pole.
  13. I've getting some shop time in between volleyball games and next week is the tournament and it will be over for the season. It has been fun but I am ready to get on to something else. This week I got started on a smoker grill table built out of Poplar. Yesterday i was able to get the frame together and the wheels on the legs. Then I got the bottom shelf boards cut and screwed down using coated decking screws. I've got to get things together today for a show this evening so it will be sometime later tomorrow before I get to work on getting the top on. I am hoping to have it all finished this weekend though. This past week a new friend came up to me and told me he used to be into wood working where they lived before moving here and he just couldn't do it any more and he had some equipment sitting in a trailer that needed to be out and put to use before it just rusted away. He said if you are interested I have a shaper you can have if you can use it in your shop. Well of course I can use it. So this week he came by with a friend and we unloaded it from his truck and rolled it into the shop. Yes it is going to need some work on the top but it is not pitted yet so it is just surface rust and should come off pretty easily. He was using it to make raise panel doors. It is a Weaver and I know nothing about them at this point. He also brought me a case full of blades with all kind of profiles. I'm looking forward to getting it cleaned up and wired for my plugs in the shop and see what it will do. It also had two fences with it. Looks a bit scary so I'll find something to practice with first. So that is my agenda, what's on your weekend agenda? Love to hear about your projects and see all of the pictures of what you are working on. Have a great weekend and whatever you do, be safe! PS: I shot in my first pistol competition last weekend and had a blast!
  14. Typically our Monday morning topic is filled with questions on what we all did over the weekend, what we have planned for the week ahead, and we will welcome our new members and share stories. But I woke up to come on here before I head off to work for the day, and upon turning on the morning news, I learned about the mass shooting in Las Vegas. So I am here writing now, and I cannot find the heart nor the words to start off our typical Monday Morning topic with words of cheer and happiness. But, that does not mean you cannot participate in this topic, to let us know what you did over the weekend, and what you have planned for the week ahead. Actually, I hope you do, perhaps I can turn to our membership for some cheer and uplifting remarks in this time of darkness for our nation. I am saddened, and hurt. The sounds of the gunfire coming from the building above the concert crowd, will forever be in my mind, knowing that the bullets were striking innocents below. So I'll turn this topic over to you my friends, and I'll head off to work in a few minutes, just like any "normal day", meanwhile the lives of many have been changed forever in our nation, as a result of the largest mass shooting in our nations history. May God shine His grace on all those affected by this tragic event and may He take those who's lives have ended, into His arms.

  19. 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.
  20. 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?

  24. 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 gallery @DerBengel has created a wonderful gallery this past week, showing of small box joinery and her painting finesse along with picture frame making. 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/
