Was surprised Friday night when my oldest grand-daughter told me she was scheduled to take her SAT's Saturday morning in the "Emerald City." So at 7 AM with a full, large travel mug of coffee and my Yeti knock-off filled with ice water. off we went on the "yellow brick striped road." OK I thought, I'll have 4+ hours to kill, I can hit some of the flea markets etc. Dropped her off at the the test site at 7:45A and off I went to my first stop...apparently none of these places open at 8 AM or 9 AM or even 10 AM...who knew...at least there was very little traffic, but makes sense now because, well, nothing is open.

 

Finally an open store a bit after 8 AM...Yes folks H-F opens at 8 AM here...the staff seemed glad to have someone to talk with at that time. A few other early risers showed too...no major purchases but allowed me plenty of time. Left there, and finally a couple of flea markets opened at 9ish...basically the 4+ hour time was spent driving from location to another and back...did find a few smalls in 4 hours.

 

Anyways, daily transportation duties, a tennis banquet tonight, a couple of swim meets this week, mowing, trimming, and hopefully get my truck released from ICU before weeks end. Maybe some shop time in between.

Rodeo and chores over the weekend. Wife flew out this AM for training at corporate so I have a week of WOW (With Out Wife). Not sure what I will do or get done yet, hopefully some time in the shop, but we will have to see what happens. What I planned at work for this week went to crap by 6:45 AM, so I am back to improvising and adapting so I can overcome.

Mowed the front lawn. Took a short  birch log 16"long and  on the band saw and cut strips 3/4 " thick. The wood is still green and when I went to the shop today, as expected, the strips had bowed and produced a few cracks. I wondered if I would be able to use the wood for anything other than firewood. It should burn OK this coming winter.

i've heard of that firm, they do excellent work.  but I went with "Shoot and Putter", similar services, just a slightly different focus....

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.
