    Absolutely Tom. I posted what was included in today's eWeekly so don't believe there would be any violations. I haven't looked, but suspect WWJ has a link somewhere on their site also?

    the Toolbox of America -- Stanley

    Well, Wally and Sam came in years ago and put all the MOM and Pops , and the old established stores out of business,and the bigger ones became all-in-one stores to compete. Then the Super sized stores, we have a Wallys World here that I swear it takes 2 days to walk from one side to the other, like putting 2-3 Lowes together. They say what goes around comes around, now Amazon has taken the challenge,and Wally's is the one with tears in their eyes. Not in my eyes, I never shopped a Wallys after the first time, too many people in sandals and stinky feet. Herb

    Building a Bed Frame

    Measurements were from the mattress at the start of the project. It is a Queen size. Ledge would be a 2 x 4, ripped down the middle, and glued and screwed in place...slats would be 1 x 6s and maybe a screw to keep them in place. We'll see how it goes... I suppose I had better cut the 1/2" plywood panel to size, so the Boss can get it done. Hope she decides what flavour to make the Pine....Then maybe a coat of Poly Gloss? We getting there...slowly...

    Building a Bed Frame

    Streven that is sure a sturdy bed frame. You are doing a super job on it. What size is it a Queen? Looks more like a King Size in the pictures, did you check the mattress size? I would put a wooden ledge on for the slats while you are at it,throw that old iron one away,or trade it for a plane. You might have to beef up under the floor too, so save those ends you cut off the rails. And don't forget to give a holler to those kids to come and help you pack that up to the bedroom. Keep the pictures coming, don't want to miss any of this. Herb

    Building a Bed Frame

    Fat fingers, keep skipping keys....maybe it is the keyboard's fault.. Haled the plank to the shop....Cussing Level was at "Reception Center arrivals" but, plank was soon trimmed to about 67-1/4" long...cutoff made a lot of racket when it hit the floor...just missing my toes... Had to notch both end, equally top and bottom....notches in the posts are a hair over 9"...plank was a FAT 9-3/8" wide.. Something didn't quite look right...had the right post..needed turned around...of course, this was AFTER I drilled and counter-bored those holes.. Notch for the side rail go to the INSIDE. Not a biggie, just need three more plugs, is all. Swing this heavy thing end for end, and do the other post....with the correct holes, of course. #12 screws were a tad fat at the head....grinder to reduce....wire whell on grinder decided to snag a cord....that was plugged in...breaker pops...GFI pops....beltsander will need it's cord fixed. Both ends assembled..set it aside to let the glue cure a day.. Double checked the notches..for the side rails.. Yep, notches match each other. Those saws? Larger one for cross cuts, smaller one for bevel cuts...larger one is from Sears, smaller one from Skil. Will unclamp and clean it up..tomorrow, maybe. Need to cut the side rails to length, and pre-drill them. Debating on adding a ledge to the bottom of the rails...for slats to sit on, and throw that old metal frame away. Or just screw the metal frame to the wood frame? Then add better slats. Until the padded panel is done, I can't do much to the headboard assembly....may knock it apart, and work on bevels and beads...we'll see Stay tuned..

    Improving On Everything

    The State Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR) runs the program, so they have the authorization. They set out the live traps and volunteers monitor them, replacing apples as needed. They haul the deer several miles away to suitable deer range in the mountains. Urban deer have adapted to human neighborhoods, breed, and rear fawns. I once had 14 of them bedded down in my back yard. They can devastate flowers, shrubs, and gardens. A few die on the roads hit by cars. Some get trapped by their hind legs in field fences. I have rescued 2 of them. On rare occasion, bucks have attacked people out walking. A nice 3-point charged me in my garden area but turned away about 30 feet away. Now, I carry a long, stiff metal rod with a sharp point if I want to scare them away. Some folks have said "the deer were here first!" I reply "So were bears, wolves, cougars and Tyrannosaurus Rex!"
  19. love pre-finished plywood. saves so much time later. used it for our entire kitchen. you still need some fret-work and corbels.....

    Building a Bed Frame

    I thought Mondays was over....I could be wrong...Fresh DNA on the Pine...Not the recommended way to test a bead cutter for sharpness... Plan for today: Finish the work on the foot board...and hopefully have it assembled by Supper time...that WAS the plan... I mentioned beads...set up the Stanley 45 to cut a bead down each face ( was only to be the outside ones, that got changed)had issues with the micro adjuster on the fence working loose....had the depth of cut too deep as well...finally got those done.... Next was a few bevels.. Set the Skil saw @22.5 degrees..first cut wasn't too bad..but why the second cut wasn't? Because the lock for the bevel had loosened...reset, recut. Square was set to guide the cut...when there was enough room for it....otherwise I had to follow a line.. Needs a little clean up...bottom of the posts were also beveled...old school style.. Cleaned this up.. Sanded both posts to 180 grit... Cleared the bench off... So when I haul that 2 x 10 x 8' plank to the shop ( whew!) I will have a spot to set it....so I can trim it down a bit....96" down to 67-1/4"....I also cleaned the floor few times... This would be the third time this morning. Finally remembered to turn the shop fan on.....so, while I am doing Lunch, I am also dying out.. Will see how the rest of the day goes....Hopefully have the foot board done, and ready for stain...stay tuned....
  24. What are they going to do when you retire for all these building projects? Looks like it will be really sturdy.

    Improving On Everything

    I know that's true here for raccoons, on the property where you trapped it or send on to its eternal reward. My former neighbor, AKA Crazy Squirrel Lady, attracted them by bringing up 500 lb of pecans at a time from GA. Loaded the dozen or so bird and squirrel feeders about 4x a day, in addition to dumping a 5 gal bucket of bread across the street. I think the record was 14 in my 1/3 acre back yard at once. I learned to trap the chipmunks before they destroyed my patio slab. The rest met Mr. Gamo. She was a wildlife rescue and I groaned when I saw a strange car in her drive and someone walking up to the front door with a cardboard box. The ones that lived, she'd just release in the yard.
  26. I hope you get some relief,Jesse, This medical stuff is no fun. Herb

    Around here the law says you can't take a trapped animal more than a kilometer from where you trapped it! A squirrel, let alone a deer, would be back before YOU got home. John

    Skeleton Clocks

    Not sure if you're asking Gerald or I. In my case, it's not a kit. I'm just attempting different looks to see what works. The skeleton clock movement itself is not designed to be free standing at all. The way it's made some sort of case is required. Steve

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
