See Jiggy's birds: Image of the week By Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums - Brazing blades (1914 – 18), No restrictions, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=50660045 These images belong to the Parsons’ ‘Women Labourers’ photograph album, taken at Parsons’ Works on Shields Road during the First World War. (TWAM ref: 2402) The factory was founded by engineer Charles Parsons, best known for his invention of the steam turbine. In 1914, with the outbreak of war, Parsons’ daughter Rachel, one of the first three women to study engineering at Cambridge, replaced her brother on the board of directors, and took on a role in the training department of the Ministry of Munitions, supporting the increasing amount of women taking on jobs in industry to support the war effort. More information about Rachel Parsons and Parsons’ Works can be found in Great North Greats a guest post by David Wright.

  12. Good Monday Morning folks! How was your weekend, what did you do in your shops, and what have you planned for the week ahead! I am completely sorry for keeping this Monday morning greeting short, but I started late today, and I am late, and I need to move on out! Hi ho hi ho, it's off to work we go!
  13. Good Monday Morning folks! Time to kick the tires and light the fires! Hi ho hi ho it's off to work we go! So, what are your woodworking plans for this week ahead, and what did you accomplish over the weekend? Me? I've been reading my wonderful books I received in the mail a few days ago and priming my mind for the grand opening of my shop once again. To see the books I have been reading go to I am ready to start to create some jigs for some chairs I am excited about, and to begin production, I have college educations to pay for and my day job only gets our family so far! So here we go! So, how about you all? What ya been up to!
  14. Good Monday morning Patriot Woodworker's! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and all your digits are still intact and functioning properly. Speaking of safety, here is a reminder for us all from the grand pooba of safety OSHA. Years ago I was a carpenter maintenance worker for Sea World of San Diego, and I was also the Safety Officer for our shop along with cataloging MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheets). I had OSHA on my mind quite often, and Anheuser Busch was very serious about the safety of their employees, it was almost a job within a job. But I learned much, and I still use many of the safe operations in my shop today. I just simply copy pasted a page from OSHA's own website here as a reminder of some of the things to watch out for, and what the industry looks like as a whole in the realm of safe practices in woodworking. When you click on the videos you'll have to open them in your own media players, and the PDF are viewable without downloading. I know, it's a boring read, but they, remember, it's OSHA! Have a safe and wonderful week ahead folks! OH! And, what did you get done over the weekend, and what are you working on for the week ahead!! Hazards and Solutions Workers operating woodworking equipment suffer the following common injuries: laceration amputation severed fingers blindness Health hazards for woodworking include wood dust and chemicals used for finishing products, which may cause skin and respiratory diseases. The following OSHA video clips and images from OSHA inspections display some of the machinery and related hazards associated with woodworking operations: Finger Jointer/Conveyor Nip Points*. (September 28, 1998). Table Saw - Unguarded*. (January 7, 1998). Shaft End/Conveyor - Unguarded*. Planer Feed Deck*. (February 2, 2000). Guide for Protecting Workers from Woodworking Hazards (PDF). OSHA Publication 3157, (1999). Personal Protective Equipment (PDF). OSHA Publication 3151, (2003). Discusses the types of equipment most commonly used to protect the head, torso, arms, hands, and feet. Additional topics include requirements, hazard assessment, selection, and employee training. Hand and Power Tools (PDF). OSHA Publication 3080, (Revised 2002). Presents to employees and employers a summary of the basic safety procedures and safeguards associated with hand and portable power tools. Wood Products: Woodworking. OSHA eTool.

This scan is of a corner cupboard, this is a great example of traditional design. These old Workbench Magazine's were fairly light on the detail, but with some prior knowledge and experience you can use this plan as a great jumping off point to build this corner cupboard. Enjoy!

  17. Patriot Picking in April

    Got a little time to slip in some Patriot Picking recently. I got this really nice Starrett Metal 100' Tape and 6" Starrett ruler in the box. Then I picked up these nice assortment. A Stanley Bailey No.5, two pair of Kline lineman pliers, and a Stanley No. 51 spoke shave. I just love finding these items. I have the No. 5 cleaned up and ready to use. I'll post a picture of it tomorrow and I have the No. 51 cleaned. The funny things is the blade was in both of the backwards and had been that way a while by the rust. Both are sharp, but I don't think they were preforming as expected to the folks that had them. Back to woodworking and Patriot Picking.
  18. As we head into this weekend I am reminded of one of the most significant pieces of woodworking, the Cross. Jesus' earthly father was a carpenter and must have taught him the trade. To have been there when the trees were created and to see them turned into the usable furniture they needed must have seem special. Then to be nailed to the cross to die for our sins. When I look at the cross and see two pieces of wood put together, I see much more than two pieces of wood put together. But we are thankful that it didn't end at the cross, as Jesus was raised from the dead and lives today, having paid for our sins and providing the path for eternal life for us with the Father in Heaven. This weekend will have some woodworking on Saturday for me, but then we will spend time together as a family on Sunday. My youngest granddaughter prayed and ask Jesus into her heart on Tuesday night. She will make it public at Church this Easter Sunday morning. I am looking forward to being there and witnessing her coming forward. I hope you all get to spend precious time with your families this weekend and to celebrate the life, death and resurrection of my Savior and Lord Jesus Christ. As always, we here at TPW love to hear about and see the projects you are working on. Have a very blessed weekend and please share with us your planes for this weekend.
  19. I am hitting the busy part of the show season for me so it is busy in the shop every chance I have. Monday night it was time to make cheese board blanks so I can get them cut this weekend into 16 boards. I can get four cheese board out of each of these blanks. Last night I was gluing up blanks for Bread Dipping Trays. I can get 10 Bread Boards out of those five blanks. They should also get finished this weekend. Now if all goes good, I should get five cutting board blanks cut and glued this weekend also and they will be ready to make the other glue up on Sunday and then sanding first of the week. I have First Friday on the first of May, the very next day I have been invited to a HGTV fund raiser and they gave me a booth. Two weeks later I have a two day show and then two weeks after than First Friday and then a frontier days show at one of the Civil War Museums. After that, I am taking a break and having my right knee replaced. So what is on your Patriot Woodworker agenda this weekend. Are you finishing a project, starting a new project, building jigs, cleaning the shop, getting ready for grass mowing season or spending the weekend relaxing? We here at TPW would like to know and see your projects so tell us what you have going in your shop this weekend.
