  1. made a picture frame this morning. it now awaits a paint job by my wonderful wife (used poplar), before receiving a counted cross stitch she did. pics when it's all ready.
  2. Some grouting before lunch, another batch afterwards. Need to to make up some thread tags. Very valuable.

    1793 Boat Shop

    if my plans hold up, my shop, which was completed 3 years ago, will still be in use by somebody 100 years from now. perhaps a little messier, maybe more full of tools and projects and supplies. but it won't be some museum that no one uses anymore.
  4. appeared to have some paper waste partially clogging the line to the tank. poked it with a stick a few times, later ran some hot water from the kitchen sink (wife was cleaning up after doing some baking), and that rush of water seems to have washed the mess down the line. have the septic guy coming out tomorrow to check things out, and do a snake if needed. we normally pump the tank every 2 years, and that is due this fall, was planning on doing it in October. that may move up, or not. also, got 2 coats of poly on my little threshold piece. last coat tomorrow. septic field was put in 6 years ago, guaranteed for 10 years if we pumped every 2 years.
  5. working on a little threshold, and...... we have septic problems....yay.
  6. came in 3rd out of 18 at yesterday's IDPA match, shooting my Colt Gold Cup. today is some tiling in my office. got all the cuts done, taking a break for lunch, will get thinset mixed up and then set the tiles in place.

    good little woodworkers follow the plan exactly as written. bad little woodworkers just make what they want with what is available (or steal from their neighbor if they cut wrong).

    but you don't have to tag responses! ha! let's see..... some one-size fits all tags for later use: wood (well, this is a woodworking forum), movement (wood moves, always), sawdust (ever see a project with zero sawdust?), photos (would be cute to use that tag and then not post any photos....bwhahaha...). sigh.

    sometimes, i don't know what i'm going to write about until i've already written it. so having to assign a tag/topic/category ahead of time seems needless and pointless. but, in accordance with directive 3302.13, I shall endeavor to overcome and adapt by improvising. oh, i also have some wood in clamps presently. stay tuned. or not. and now it's 2 tags. good grief....
  14. moved water to the house. got some tiling done, then it rained (yay!), and after a brief break, it's raining again (double yay!!). tomorrow? maybe do all the tiles around the perimeter that need to be cut to fit.
  15. i'd be worried about A) someone tipping that table over by leaning on the edge (as the legs don't extend to the edge of the top), and B ) someone leaning on the end of that table and snapping the glue joint in half, even with biscuits. you do have some cross pieces underneath, right???

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.
