Blue lacquer chairs
I built one prototype bar stool and two kitchen side chairs in times past, using poplar wood, and I had to do something with them.  So, I decided to practice spraying colored lacquer (a new technique for me).

My Big Ash Mallet
I had a little fun in the shop this morning. Soon I'll be firing up some chairs to build, and right now I am kind of jigging up and tooling up for this big project. Besides the jigs my son and I have been working on, today I got in the shop and made one complete mallet, and I have a couple more in the wings that need to be made as well.

Log Mule/Carving Bench
I've been wanting to try my hand at greenwood carving, particularly spoon carving.  I decided that, to give myself every chance to succeed, I would need a bench dedicated to carving.  I checked youtube, carving forums, etc and decided that a log mule/carving bench would fit the bill.  It just so happened that my mother, last week, had asked me to remove some downed trees from her yard.

Jacobsburg Historical Society
Jacob Hubler, an immigrant from Switzerland, purchased his first tract of land in what is now Bushkill Township in 1743 and over the next decades he would continue to accumulate tracts of land that he would later call Jacobsburg. Hubler became a naturalized subject of the British Crown in 1763, and during the American Revolution he served on Northampton County’s Committee of Observation. Sometime before 1785, Hubler built the Jacobsburg Inn, which served as a store, tavern, and residence. By the time he died in 1789, Hubler’s holdings amounted to about 432 acres. Read more...

4th of July, 1776
My thoughts,
Our beautiful country, as we come up to the 244th anniversary of our Independence, I am bursting with pride at how far our young country has come in such a short period of time.
I am thankful for living here, I thank God every day for allowing me and my family to be a part of the American experience. I love our American people, with all our faults, and with all our unique traits and culture that has formed since the day William Bradford set foot on Plymouth Rock.
We are the American Experience, there is none like it the world over, there are no people like us, and we are a very unique culture made up of a melting pot of Natives, Immigrants, and Natural Born.
Thank you America, thank you men and women who provide for our protection so that we may sleep soundly at night, thank you Military. And thank you to the folks on Capitol Hill who legislate, argue, and represent. And thank you to all Americans for personally making my families life rich with daily experiences as our people and our society grow, change, shift, re-position, and never settle for status quo.
And most of all, thank you God for shining your light down on our country and having mercy on our land and for your fatherly love, and endless supply of patience as we Americans, just try to figure it all out.
Be proud!
For we are, AMERICANS!

This is a scanned document of the now defunct Workbench Magazine of this era. Permission was granted by the new Workbench Publication for The Patriot Woodworker community to copy and use the old Workbench Magazine at our pleasure, and for free distribution and re-use.
This scan is of a corner cupboard, this is a great example of traditional design. These old Workbench Magazine's were fairly light on the detail, but with some prior knowledge and experience you can use this plan as a great jumping off point to build this corner cupboard.

Has anyone had any experience with Fisch bits, specifically their auger bits?  I have been looking for a source for auger bits.  What I see on ebay and Amazon is disappointing.  Rusty, still have wood chips in the cutters and flutes, broken spurs, etc.  The only place I have found with a decent selection is Highland Woodworking.  Their product line features Fisch Jennings pattern bits, and a three piece set of 3/8, 1/2, and 3/4 inches is $119.99.  A little pricey, but if they are good quality I don't mind that too much.
