2 pointsI have been experimenting with some soft cedar with inside out turning. I came up with a couple of pieces of junk, but it proved that one idea worked, while the other failed. I didn't throw them away, when I walk by them, I get other ideas. Anyway I cut one in two pieces and made some great looking Christmas ornaments, I'll get some pictures out tomorrow when the finish is where I want it.
1 pointAn interesting story that I came across while doing our geneology stuff for the Kaub bunch from Germany. They settled in a little area there in Allegany County, Maryland about 20 miles west of Cumberland in a small town called "Accident". The story that I came across while doing the research went that there were 3 guys who were doing the assaying of the land there in Allegany County dividing up the various parcels into smaller chunks for towns. They were all working in different directions and different parcels and all 3 were working towards coming to one place unbeknownst to each other. So they all had included that parcel in their assaying by accident. So that last parcel they named it "Accident". So some of my kin lived in the the little town of Accident, Allegany County, Maryland, which is now in Garret County.
1 pointGreat info on hydration and what "lack of" can do to our bodies. In Georgia, humid and muggy translate to "humuggity". Hmm, noticed my spell checker didn't like "humuggity".
1 pointSeveral years ago I would have jumped on it, Ron. The last couple of years have zapped me, especially in this heat. I guess you could say I'm outta the kitchen cause I can't stand the heat. We are in Monteagle, TN this weekend and lovin the 83 degree weather. We almost pulled out of the show due to the high heat and humidity.
Who We Are
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!
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.
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.
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.
