On New Years Day we made our rounds and visited family, and we paid ol pops a visit. He lives in the local mountains, there was even a tad bit of snow left from the last snow he had! After we spent a few hours there we ventured up the mountain some more and let the kids roll in the big snow.

But here are a few random shots of dad and his shop.

Image below is what is leftover of his cedar pile of wood, he loves making birdhouses, and he sells them locally.

And a late model Craftsman Contractors Table Saw he uses for secondary cuts or he leaves a dado on it at all times.

His main go to compressor, he only uses it for finish nails, he doesn't believe in cleaning up so he certainly doesn't need air for that!

Yes folks, it does snow in southern California, we actually had about 4" on the ground a few days before this.

And just for kicks and giggles, Dad's home! A restored single wide trailer, we got this place for a song and dance, and pops loves it up in the hills.

John, that's a nicely, organized and clean shop your dad has. Regardless of his little compressor. 

Like Larry, I find the sweater quite pleasing to the eye. 

Too bad he didn't pass on the hirsute gene. :D  :D

He reads this board Larry, he'll appreciate that wholly, and it's going to make my job harder to convince him to get rid of it! :D

John,

I don't think there is anything wrong with his sweater.

It reminds me of an Indian blanket, and I'm part Blackfoot. :D

Do I need to shame you into leaving your dads sweater alone? :lol:

If you think dad's sweater is out there, you should see the robes and lap quilts Phyllis has made for me and others. 

Loony tunes characters and Japanese fabrics, with polka dot scraps interspersed. 

But then, they aren't worn in public, either.

As far back as I can remember, the only time I ever actually cared was when I was forced to care. .

The Military has a way of channeling your thoughts. 

I'd still wear that sweater anywhere.

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.
