    A project in Poplar

    Roh-Kay....cleaned the corners up.. Then planed the top and bottom edges. Laid out a bead line... Need to mill two beads below this line, all the way around the box. First, I need to change a few parts out, on the Stanley 45 #13 cutter was removed, as was the short rods.....added the long rods and a #23 bead cutter.. As these has a bit more reach to them...got things all set up.. Then set the fence. And away we go... Was trying out the depth stop, to keep from going to deep on the end.. I cut the beads on the ends first, then the long sides. Once I went all the way around with a single bead, I could reset the fence to cut a second bead... Once the second bead was done, time to get out a saw.. Just to the top of the bead. Cut at a 45 degree.....on two corners. Fun part was connecting the two saw cuts.. Made a plunge cut. Sabre saw comes in rather handy for that. Hand saw to finish the cuts.. Then, I could size the lid's panel, and cut the rebates all the way around. Once the panel was able to slide in and out easy enough, I glued the "handle " on... Soooo, while watching glue dry..I figured I could clean the floor, again.. Messy floor.....but, welcome to my world.. Just a small workshop... Need to figure out what finish for the box....maybe a handle or two? Stay tuned, almost done.

    Change your time zone...

    December the 21st starts the days getting longer again. Benjamin Frankin, the Father of DST? Many sources also credit Benjamin Franklin with being the first to suggest seasonal time change. However, the idea voiced by the American inventor and politician in 1784 can hardly be described as fundamental for the development of modern DST. After all, it did not even involve turning the clocks. In a letter to the editor of the Journal of Paris, which was entitled “An Economical Project for Diminishing the Cost of Light”' ****************Franklin simply suggested that Parisians could economize candle usage by getting people out of bed earlier in the morning. What's more: Franklin meant it as a joke.******************* Pretty moot today since every room you go into a light that someone left on is burning no matter the time of day.

    Change your time zone...

    I rolled on the floor laughing the other day. Some poor millennial reporter credited "President Benjamin Franklin", in a major newspapers' article, for enacting DST. I can see her going real far towards a Pulitzer Prize in journalism!

    WIFI Extenders

    I'll add WIFI signal theft to my short list of reasons to move. The other one is it's time to move when you can't take a leak off the back porch.

    Thank You Patriot Woodworker's

    I just wanted to say thank you all for being here. You don't have to, but you are. As I was going through a few things this morning, general maintenance and house cleaning here on TPW, I thought how patient you all are with our seemingly ever upgrades and troubleshooting and making good on error reports etc. We are not perfect, we don't have an IT department like our wonderful big online retailers with their forums have. We are truly organic and grass roots in every sense. With that comes issues, many caused by software glitches, and some even caused by yours truly, due to my ignorance. But you all stick with it, and you are all so patient. So, just wanted to say again, THANK YOU! Peace and good times to all

    Daylight Savings Time Change

    This has always messed me up. Especially after my wife's parents moved to Yuma Arizona 21 years ago where they do not have Daylight Savings Time. We would always get calls from my wife's mom to us in California either too early in the morning or too late at night waking us up.

    Thank You Patriot Woodworker's

    Thank you. This is the only site I have been on that I can count on glitches being fixed or at least a good explanation why they can't be. I am glad to be part of this fantastic site with a fantastic group of people.

    Great bunch here. Probably the best mannered, most level headed, generous bunch on the net.

    You must be bald? I let mine get to my shoulders once. Never again. Too much hassle.

    corner cabinet layout

    One nice thing about this design was that the back was flat and didn't go back into the corner. Not as much space in the closet but it pretty much avoided the non-square corner problem

    Thank You Patriot Woodworker's

    "Experts" say that's what leads to healthier lifestyles... As long as I don't have to mow this grass too. Can't imagine being any place else but here...too many talented, great and friendly people...someday, some of it might finally rub off on me.

    So should I add, subtract, divide or multiply toward the 2K goal or... just assume this was some sort of Russian alien spam hacking backed by nefarious donut racketeers... attempting to inflate, dominate and monopolize the global donut distribution kingdom?

    Thanks to one shot

    I'm glad it's helping. wife's experience with steroid shots was that the pain comes back in less than a month. She eventually had the knee replaced...which she was advised to do well before the steroid shots. Stubborn old bat.

    Thanks to one shot

    Gene she says the shot was not something special, was just in the exact spot it needed to be. Steroid and Lidocaine, the spell check tried to steer me on to Novocaine but her being an RN I put down what she told me to. Anti inflammatory and numbing drug. Like I said before, I got the same treatment but was with a different doctor! Probably her doctor had better eyesight. Or could could turn on the switch better?

    A project in Poplar

    Roh-kay, Raggy.... Glue has been spread, clamps applied... 5 clamps? Because I ran out....need to buy a few more, sometime... Let this set a day, or so. Then the corners get cleaned up, and spiffy. Beads need to be run around the sides...and a couple saw cuts made,... . And need to cut some leftovers down to size.. To make a sliding lid for the top. Beads to hide where the slider comes out at. Panel is Poplar, looks a bit better than just plain old plywood. Not sure about a finish, just yet. Stay tuned ( King Biscuit Flour Hour, 800 on you am radio dial..CKLW)

    See, there you go, rationalizing, again! If it had been PMed it would have been to me and not you. That way, you couldn't have hogged it like you do the doughnuts! Give it up...no one even believes that you get there first ALL of the time.

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.
