Friday, March 7th, What's on Your Patriot Woodworker Agenda?

Recommended Posts

Thank goodness it is in the mid 60's here today, beautiful blue sky and not a cloud in site. First Friday starts tonight and will run the first Friday of each month till December. I have been in a bit of a push, but what else is new, to get things ready. Alas I have the boards done and ready to go.


ning-img-3208-4355-88.jpgThis is the last group I finished up Wednesday and put another coat of mineral oil on last night. I have another set that was completed a few weeks ago so I am ready to start.



Still working on the Cherry Chest.


I got the moldings made and ready to attach and put stain on this baby.



ning-img-3189-4355-32.jpgThis was after the first run through the router with the curved router bit. I just realized I didn't take a picture and the next two steps. I ran it through again with a round nose bit and took off the sharp edge on the left and then used a 1/2" round over on the top edge to give it a little more curve on the top. I will get another picture and post later showing the end of the trim.


Here it is while I am checking the fit and look on the chest.


ning-img-3190-4355-60.jpgYou can probable see in the bottom trim the more round transition.



So I will be finishing it out with stain and varnish this weekend and shipping it out next Friday.



How about you, what is on Your Patriot Woodworking Agenda this weekend? Please share you project with us and post some pictures here so we can see and learn about what you are working on. We love to see those project in progress pictures as it helps many learn the steps and see that they too can make a piece once they see how it is done.



So don't wait any longer, please post those projects and pictures so we can all share and brag on your work.

Monday, I'll be putting the trim on a cabinet job that I've been on for the past week or so.  All the trim is stained and finished just waiting for a date with the pin nailer.

Ron, I dated a pin nailer once. What an air head. 


I'll be working on a very small ring box.

ROAD TRIP!!!   Checked out a few places for any rustiness.   One place was closed, a second too far from the parking spot to walk ( whew!) and the third???ning-imag0009-4366-95.jpg?width=721Well this was just sitting there, looking neglected,  price WAS $15.   Got a small discount ( for an Old Fart??) Seemed to have been lathered in varnish, too.   Missing the iron/cutter, though.ning-imag0010-4366-71.jpg?width=721Adjustments are made with wedges.  Will be set to the center of a 3/4 board width.  Then away we go.  ning-imag0011-4366-43.jpg?width=721Did see some braces, most of them were missing a part of one or the other handles.   Might have been a might uncomfortable to use....



Did stop at a few "normal stores" since the other half was along.   Picked up a screwdriver so I could replace the High Mount Brake Light bulb.    Just the start of the Rust Hunt Season.....




Planer? I'm the 'planer', and these are what I use...

I feel like a straight man in a Gene Wilder movie.



Was she sharp?

Wow John you have got some more inventory.

Love it

The chest has kept me busy, but I had to stop and finish some cutting hoards for my first show of the season.

Back on the chest tomorrow.

I'm already planning what to build next week and I've 2 more days of sales. its a good thing I have 15 cutting boards, and a half dozen bread trays in-process. hopefully I've learned my lesson and this year we'll stay ahead with inventory. or even better we'll make more and sell all of it :)

John, Please post pics of the finished chest. It looks huge. I'll bet it will be absolutely gorgeous!


Steven, does a wooden plane with no blade really qualify as a rust hunt find? Good eye, though. Nice buy.


That BB is going to be a beauty, Lew. Nice work.


Good luck, John H. It's tough to anticipate. The buying public is fickle. Hope you do well. 


Ron, she was sharp, indeed. Heck of a rack, too. But, she couldn't stand the pressure.

Gene:  the two piece skate is steel, and VERY RUSTY, indeed.   I think I got a Senior Discount on it, too.   Off to find a long 1/4" chisel, to make into an iron, sans rust, of course...

Steven, I tried to get a senior discount when I bought that 1/2 of a Sargent at a flea market. The gal said I had to be older than the plane to qualify. I told her I had a lot old of rusty parts. She said "never mind" and dropped the price.

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.
