Friday, Jan 27, 2017, What's on your Patriot Woodworker Agenda?

Recommended Posts

Here we are in the dead of winter and it is cold outside. They just got my gas line run back to the shop the day before my knee surgery and so I am using electric oil heaters in the shop and they just don't do what the gas heat did. I've got to get on that and get some real heat back in the shop before it is AC time!

 

But at this time all I am really doing is some tool maintenance and straighten the place up a bit. Why is it that every flat surface will become completely covered with stuff and you can't see the surface? Well I have found the surface on part of my back bench, but not all of it yet.

 

Saturday my wife and I are heading to Huntsville, AL to a gun show. As with tools, nothing I "need" but who know what might call my name while I am there. I will do my best to be ready and listening as hard as possible in case something were to call out my name.

 

Sunday will be a little more tool tune up and getting ready to actually see if I am ready next week to turn them on and make a little saw dust. Nothing big and no long days, but I'm ready to see if I can do a little woodworking.

 

What is on your agenda this weekend? All of us here at TPW love to hear what you are doing and your plans. You never know who you might motivate into a project. 

 

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and whatever is on your agenda, please be safe!

I've been out of my shop for a few days and am starting to get back in the swing of thing. I am thinking of designing/ building a simple work station that implements the small tools I use to do my lathe projects. I've surfed the web and picked up a few ideas, but I'd rather do it myself. One idea I have to to convert a computer workstation. I'd have to find one made of wood. It does happen. I've seen very nice Oak work stations on the walk with  "free" on it. Of course I didn't want one then

Spent the day with the Furniture Bank in Cincinnati making a field trip to Columbus' Furniture Bank.  It was quite an impressive operation up there.

Hope everyone pulls through just fine.

 

Well, brought home three pine boards, and a plywood 4' x4' panel....Home Despot thinks these are gold plated....well, not only are they in the shop..

 

Snuck back down to the shop,:ph34r:  crosscut one 1 x 8 into the parts for the bottom drawer......and went back upstairs...:rolleyes:

 

Did it again, as I wanted to try out a "better" dovetail saw..;)....had to layout the dovetails first.....then the saw ( not too bad) and then a few chisels wanted in on the act....next thing I know, I had one corner all dovetailed up , and fitted.  :o  Decided that was enough Tom-foolery....until the morning....:rolleyes:

 

I got to learn when to say "When!"   someday.:rolleyes:

Dave, here's hoping everything turns out for the best for you and the family.

 

Got me some finishing to do today. Tomorrow, we're taking a friend to an Italian restaurant for his 90th birthday.

Prayers for you and the family Dave. I know it can be tough and hard. My mom is in assisted living and I understand one step forward and two steps back.

Keith, I was watching an episode of "American Woodshop" and he did a tour of the Columbus Furniture Bank. It really was interesting to watch (something that's not normal for me when watching Scott Phillips) and they were really cranking out the stuff. I didn't realize there was one in Cincinnati as well. You volunteer there?

Man Dave, you've had a worse week than I have.  I'm adjusting to a new diet (doctor's orders) and have just finished the ukelele cart.  It is my daughters and was hers to paint but I ended up painting it.

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.
