    More ornaments

    Wow, simply amazing Steve
  2. I have a lot of different "projects" on tap for this weekend. I started to tear down a swimming pool/garden deck this week. It has outlived its usefulness and will be recycled into other things. Yesterday the vinyl siding guy came to look over what will be required after the deck is removed, I will need to remove all the existing siding on the back side of the garage. I had already figured this to be the case - now I know it and will start to do my part. I might get some time into this project over the weekend. More on that later. Saturday, this morning I want to go look for a couple suitable pallets to recycle, I need to do a few picture/mirror frames. If the pallets are available I will be working on those this afternoon while the UGA-Mizzo game is on the shop tv. Also today I have a pic frame to stain and I am experimenting with a new mirror design. This evening we have a wedding to attend. I made a mirror and frame for this occasion about a month ago. SWMBO wants to have a yard sale next weekend. I will likely spend a good bit of tomorrow gathering up surplus stuff and preparing for that Not my favorite thing to do, I don't even like to go to them...

    turning Blue ply

    I have not heard of blue ply either Ron, but that is gorgeous! And I think the glue turning blue just adds to it. What do you finish it with?

    End Vise Tune Up

    Any chance that where you live would be enough drier that the wood might dry back out? I am thinking that it was operating at one time. Perhaps a little emery cloth action to the tubes and wax would bring it back around. Or do the sanding drum on a drill... Looking forward to see what some others might suggest.
  7. Congratulations Pete! I would like to say that we are on a roll here, but there isn't much "we" to it. Y'all are on a roll!

    moulding adhesive on vehicle

    Here is a decent write up for you: https://itstillruns.com/way-body-side-molding-adhesive-7597920.html The eraser wheels that I have seen & used are more for light & thin adhesives like decal residue. If you go that route be careful, that eraser wheel on a drill will go right through the adhesive and right through the paint too! A good auto parts store that carries paint/body supplies should have plastic razor blades, one or two should do you. If it were me... I might just drop it off at a good body shop. They have the expertise, the tools, and much younger backs because that is a lot of work being bent over. Even with a rolling stool it is difficult (for me) to get the angle on the work to be comfortable for any length of time.

    minwax stains

    I spoke to soon when I said I would have to try Walmart next time, although I would like to see if they carry any GF stuff. After I posted that I remembered that the last time I went to the local lumber yard for a half pint of stain they let me carry the sample board display home so that I could try and match the floor! You don't get service like that at any big box that I know of... Only problem with the local guys - they close at 5:00 during the week and early Saturday, like noon. But I do like to do business with them.

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!


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.


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.



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.
