I processed two 20" Dia. Maple logs and a 25" Dia. White Oak log into turning blanks.  Cut them into manageable pieces with the chainsaw and then ran them through the band saw.  Now I need a place to store them.

I also took some Cedar logs and cut one inch wide discs.  My niece wants numbers scrolled into them to use to number the tables at her wedding next Spring.  I cut the one on the end this Summer and it cracked while drying.  I'm sure the others will do the same.  I may slather on some wipe on poly in a couple days to see if it helps any.

It was a nice week to spend outdoors.  Nasty stuff starts tomorrow.

The election is over and I get to head back into the shop.  Today a friend dropped off a rocking chair that needs some TLC.  He's a pastor and a counselor and a client (a large one) snapped the back off of an oak rocker.  I'll see if I can repair it.

Spent the last 3 days at the MS Agriculture Museum with some woodturning club members. Mostly I turned spin tops which the kids loved. Also sold several pieces beside all the tops I could turn. Tomorrow we have a turning club meeting and the demo is the Cosmic Cloud platter. Should be a great day.

      Hopefull I will get back onto the chess set next week.

I will see what I can do with them this weekend.  If I can't find a spot you can come down and get them.  Don't blame me if they stop you at the border on the way back.

Yesterday I got a batch of Pizza peels glued and ready to start to cut down and finish.

 

 

John,

 

How do you bevel the edge of your pizza peels? I did the bulk of my with a jack plane and it turned out great but I am wandering what other options there are.

Trying to finish up special orders and product for an ujpcoming show.  The project below is to be picked up on Sunday.  Made from 3/4" Red Oak with a 1/4" Oak plywood backer.

I have used a spoke shave but the fastest is on the round open drum sander.

I was busy going into this weekend. I added a new tool to the shop and couldn't be more please with this saw. It is a 14" craftsman. I will need to buy a few blades but it performs great.

My big focus this weekend is trying to knockout Christmas presents. I finished up a pizza peel last night. This was my first one and i like the way it turned out.

This morning this was what my shop looked like while working on a couple of valet boxes, a cutting board, and a couple of tool boxes. All of these are gifts for Christmas.

I finished up today installing a new blade in the table saw and cut miters for the valet boxes. This one is walnut and will have a curly maple top and maple splines and the other will be solid cherry with walnut splines. Miters looked great when I clamped them up to check. Hope to actually finish some of these up going into next weekend.

Looks like you've been busy. I like the band saw. Glad you were able to get it. Nice pizza peel also. You are doing some nice work. 

Enjoyed your visit at the shop the other day. Come back anytime.

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.
