That's really red, John. As always, nice work. 

Glad you're getting around in the shop. Bet that new space has been calling your name the whole time you were laid up.

 

I'm finishing this weekend. Get this last chest done and shipped and outta my hair by Wednesday, hopefully. Then, break out the mesquite and have some fun.

Things seem to be falling in place without a lot of trouble. As you know, I got married at the end of December and the wife and I still live in our own places, about 180 miles apart. I was going up to her place this weekend then she would be coming down next Sunday and staying for about 3 weeks while I had my surgery and will be laid up afterwards. She put her app in for a job with one of the local cities here on Tuesday and they called her yesterday for an interview - next Friday. So, she needs to get her place in order to be able to leave it for a few weeks (this weekend) and then come down to me next Thursday night and go to her interview on Friday. I am keeping my fingers, toes and anything else crossed for this position for her.

 

So, I am staying here and I am heading to the SHOP! The weather is warming up so it will not be so freaking cold out there and I will, if all goes well, be able to finish a couple of 1/2 started projects. That is what is on my agenda...

Got out to the shop today . The cold weather had kept me away, but when I walked in, the place looked like a warehouse, full of empty boxes. Seems it was a convenient place to toss those boxes from Amazon, Walmart, and everywhere else.  Spent some time cutting 'em up and putting them in the woodburning stove to warn up the shop a bit. Dampness, obviously from the cold has developed a bit of rust on the table saw and other tool surfaces in the shop. It looks like I'll have to get the shop warmed up enough to remove the rust and get another good coat of wax on these surfaces.

I recently bought a cross vice for my drill press. That's what started the clamp consolidation. The shop is so small that anything that comes in requires either something to leave or a redesign. Most of my C and F clamps were stored rod under the drill press. Needed that space for the cross vice. Finally found a little wall space by moving some old jigs to another spot and making some clamp racks. Still need one more and I'll have everything together- except for the spring clamps. Film at 11.

Finished up a turning tool portable rack for my turning club. Started on Christmas ornaments and blew out the first one , a nice spalted piece

.

John Glad you are doing better . Good thing you have a supervisor to keep you under control.

 

Stick surely you have more clamps than I see in that picture. I know all of mine would not fit in that space. By the way it is a nice and functional storage.

Inside out turned another vase.  Posted pictures of it in the turning board here.

 

Played around with photography some.  Took some of the pictures in a small portable photo booth I came across and learned how to crop a picture.  Was inspired to try harder at taking pictures by Geralds Blog.

 

It is a learning process but doable.

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.
