Friday, Jan 17th, What's on Your Patriot Woodworking Agenda?

Recommended Posts

Released from the Dr. yesterday after my knee surgery and ready to get to work in my shop. Wow is it a mess. But I did get a little jump on getting a couple of projects ready to go. Of course as always they are behind, but due to the unexpected knee surgery.



I am working on a Cherry Blanket Chest and go the pieces cut that will make the sides and ends. These pieces will get glued up and will run vertical instead of horizontal. The chest will be 48" long and 20" deep. I should get all of these planned to close dimensions this afternoon.

ning-img-2853-5825-53.jpgSo that is what is happening in my shop this weekend, what about you? Are you making new projects, jigs, furniture, rearranging the shop and just hanging out? We love to see the projects you are working on and hope you will post them here in the forum and let us share with you.



I look forward to see and hearing about what you have going on in the shop or around your area.

My weekend will be spent in Las Vegas. My Step Dad is getting re-married so we will be there with some of the family for it. They decided it was just easier and cheaper to do it in Las Vegas as opposed to having at a church since it will be about 20 people. Also they will be flying to Florida to take a cruise for their honeymoon and the air fare was cheapest flying out of Las Vegas. So since this is my first Las Vegas wedding, I am hoping that Elvis will show up to do the ceremony. :-)

Tami and I don't gamble or drink, but we do have fun in Las Vegas just walking around and doing a little bit of shopping and laughing at the people. We also have some old friends out there that we will meet up with. Weather should decent as long as the wind isn't blowing. Down to the 40's at night and up to the mid 60's during the day. So just incase Elvis doesn't show up at the wedding, I will be sure to bring my Elvis glasses so that I can fill in if needed. :-)

Got the go-a-head to begin the bunk beds for the neighbor girls. I need to make a trip to the mill for the lumber and plywood. That has to be planned around the weather because all of the plywood has to be broken down into sizes small enough to get them into the basement.


Note to self: Remember you need to construct the project so you can get it back out of the basement!

Because of the cold temps out in the shop, it took longer than I thought to finish the "log cabin mail box" but it's done and going to UPS today to be shipped to S. Calif.


June's daughter saw one at Bass Pro Shops and wanted me to make one for them!


ning-mailbox-5832-29.jpg?width=721I glued up some cedar for the base and the walls were some left over T/G flooring. The roof was sliced from a 4 x 4 redwood post. Didn't cost much to make but it kept me thinking "how am I going to do that"!


I will say it was fun but...... Now I can move on to other projects.

Wow Allen at first I thought that was Rick from "Pawn Stars"! I had to take a second look. Go by there while in Vegas and get some pictures for us. You might also check out American Restorations. Those would be fun side trips.


Have a great time.

I got the new Woodcraft mag the other day and the last article in the book was a snazzy design for a bagel slicer.  I thought I'd make a prototype to see if I like them for gifts or........  By the way, the designer and builder was Marlin Kemmet who used to be over at Wood mag.  Looks like he made a shift to Woodcraft.

Harry, I love the cabin. That is so cool and I love all the detail you gave to it.

Got a boatload of pens that i am going to be working on this weekend. I will only get a few done as I have to drill then glue then wait for the glue to dry, but hey I'll get a good start at least. Most of them are slimlines like Roy put in his post earlier, but I also have one stylus to make and 3 pens of which PSI calls the tycoon. 2 in rollerball, and 1 in fountain tip. My first ever fountain tip pen making so that will be interesting.


What about the rest of you?

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.
