    Here we go!!

    The lady who cuts my hair said she has a bunch of wood that her father was saving to turn bowls. She is going to give it to me. Looks like I’ll be making some more bowls

    Made this one for my daughter. Her boyfriend proposed to her on Christmas Eve at my house. He used the ring that my hubby gave me before we both deployed. Amazingly, I didn't cry.

    Here we go!!

    So, I finally have a jig saw, an angle grinder, some mica powder (for epoxy resin), I found a local wood shop for things I need done that I can't do myself (planing an uneven slab, etc)... I feel like a kid turned loose in a candy store LOL I ordered the wood carving bits for the angle grinder (not the $145 Arbortech that I had been looking at), more jig blades... I feel like I'm about to get myself into LOTS of trouble LOL I'm probably going to go get the 2x4's that I need to make that wavy flag, get the shop to plane them to the same width (on the 4" side), and to level one side (2" side) to have a squared bottom edge to start with. OMG I am so excited and ready to start tearing into some wood LOL Granted, getting them sold will be another issue until the fest season begins around here again. So... What are your woodworking plans for the new year? (I can't promise I won't borrow your inspirations lol)

    Belt sander table

    I have a similar old Craftsman belt sander and made this “table” to do what I think you talking about. The photos are not in any particular order. I didn’t have any plans but if you have questions I’ll try to answer them

    Holiday Pickings

    Had a bit of Holiday Cash to spend.....headed to an Antique Mall in Springfield, OH.....called the "Heart of OHIO".....and spent a few hours walking around....turned down a Stanley 45, type 2/3....was "only" $200 + tax..... Spent about $15 + tax for two items... $8 for the Keen Kutter No. 104, 10" sweep brace...handle had a dab of black paint.. Wood is Walnut. The two metal bands are Pewter....fancy chuck.. Able to use even normal twist drill bits...gives me two such chucks....Millers Falls also had this chuck...for the 1050-1054 series.. The other half of the pickings? Turned down an all-metal one, because it was missing the bolt in it's handle....the bolt on this one? Interesting....Compared to the one I have been using... Methinks the lever one is a Stanley...the newest one is a smaller version of.. At least these look better than the others in the til... "Plastic Fantastic.." I'll stick with the wood ones. There are at least 8 bays in the place...along with display cases down the middle of the aisles...plan for at least 1/2 a day just to walk around in the place... Was a nice day....

    Having been gone for 3 years and little contact with home and such, as in no visits, I sent and email to my Father informing him I was engaged with a picture. Here is pic, his response? How much did you pay for the girl to sit with you and get a photo.Few months later he informs my Mother he will pay me a visit in Ukraine and look into this. Then slips this comment in, "Might do some shopping and upgrade you for two younger models." Oddly he never could find his passport application after that. This is what I imagine my mother doing when he said that.

    Well, I guess I'll tell you about them until I can figure this out... I have two smaller ones... one says ;IGY6 - I am my brothers keeper with the silhouette of 4 soldiers another small one where I engraved the ;IGY6 (more irritation that it was worth for such a small piece lol) with soldier silhouettes. One larger flag (22"x14' ish?) with "America - Home of the Brave" at the bottom.

    We are our own worst critics. That said we also have some extremely talented people here. I am always amazed at what they come up with.

    Thanks Dave, Boy did that bring back some memories, I loved "Animal Stories" when I was in my early teens. I'm going for the 1920's-30's style of radio look. I keep finding bits and pieces of stuff that was salvaged and stashed from junk picking, pile diving, etc. The trim pieces I'm using came from salvage furniture that my neighbor throws out from time to time. The object I'll be introducing today came from my neighbors stash of lamp parts. I had a hard time talking him out of it, but when he asked me what I was going to do with it he tossed it to me. So follow along, and you'll see what I answered him. Start with one 1920's-30's style of lamp finial. Step ONE: Add a few parts by threading the 1/8" IPS to 1/4" 28? Threads per inch adaptor, and the finial together (flange of adaptor to base of finial) using the stud. The adapter will go through the original top of Silver Box brass tag which will be going back on the box top, but in a slightly different location from original. Well you're at it throw in one, maybe two? Blue LED's Which leaves you with something like this. Now wait a minute...We just saw you put the adaptor, and the finial together with a steel stud!! ….You Did!!!.... As to the new location... Getting the power cable from the computer motherboard required making another harness that would get there. Which required drilling a couple of holes. One in the box lid. You can still see the original brass tag holes and the hole at the back edge of the lid. And the other in the back edge of the upper case. The harness the gets passed through the above hole. The plug end stays inside the case. I'll be making an Oak chase for running the wires through, and the finished finial assembly will get mounted to it. The two original brass tag holes will get covered by the wire chase. At that point the lighted knob for the computer case lid will be ready to lift the lid. But I've got two Blue LED's...What should I do with the second one? Until tomorrow.

    Belt sander table

    You could simply use one of these to switch it too. Less expensive. Use a zip tye to hold the sander switch closed.

    Make sure you get prices before

    I think Patch is using the same kind I am, that can be used in the old fixtures with or without ballasts. I wired some around the ballast because the ballast was bad, and also have some just replaced with the ballast still in place because I didn't want to take the fixture down and rewire around the ballast. I can't tell the difference between the two as far as output goes, maybe it burns more power leaving the ballast in, I don't know. I have (58) 4' tubes in my shop, so there are no shadows. Herb

    Yea... I'd have lost it. I'm not known for having a very long fuse (hence the handle lol). Stuff like this is the reason I live 10 hours away from my family. I couldn't even bring myself to go home for my grandparents funerals because I knew I'd have to interact with them. At this point, other than to support my sister, I'm not sure I could even go to my own mothers funeral. I firmly believe in karma... ugliness, hatefulness, abuse, etc. will be revisited x3.

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.
