  1. Good Monday Morning! Good Monday morning Patriot Woodworkers! What did you get done over the weekend, and what have you planned for the week ahead! Inquiring minds want to know. Please tell us what's happening in your shops, your life, and any events going on with you. Thank you for being here folks!  Theme News As many of you know by now, our theme or appearance looks quite different right now, what you are seeing is the default theme for our software without customization. Since our upgrade and after upgrading the custom theme to follow along, we were experiencing errors being thrown with each page visit by users of our community, creating a strain on our network. I am working on this issue within my spare time, unfortunately now that the new work week has begun we are more than likely going to have to use this default theme until the weekend comes along again and I can sit down and dig in. Thank you all for your patience.

  2. This week has mostly been a week of cleaning are reorganizing the shop. We have moved most everything that was in the back of the shop to the front, and what was in the front to the back. Trying to improve our work flow through the shop. Wow what a mess I have made. Saturday we are going to Nashville, my CNC came in Monday but haven't had time to make the run up there. The new CNC is part of the reason for the shop rearrangement and should work a lot better. I am also running some new ductwork for my DC. Thanks for all of your wonderful birthday wishes. I have reached the magic 65 number and still going strongly. So what's on your agenda for this St. Patrick's day weekend? Hope the weather is better and warming up so you can get in the shop. Post your pictures and share with us your weekend projects. Whatever you are doing this weekend, have fun and be safe!
  3. Well I have been absent for a few weeks from the site. We were contacted by a design company to built a couple of prototypes for them to take to market. So we got busy working on them and finished last Friday morning and they are at market this week. We have no idea where this will go but we were ask to prepare a bid for 1000 of them. So that what’s been going on with us. Hopefully we will know something in about a week. So now back to other work. We almost finished a large custom green egg, grill, outdoor unit for a customer. Most of it is cedar, the top will be Epay Wood, something the customer had. Also going to use it on some of the trim. Saturday I’m heading to Nashville to Woodcraft to pickup a new and larger CNC machine. No idea where I’m going to put it, the shop is full! Maybe another addition. Glad to be back posting today and look forward to seeing and hearing about your weekend agenda. Sorry but but right now I can’t tell you anything more about the prototypes. Hope you have a great weekend and whatever you do have fun and be safe!

  6. Last Friday I got busy early and my good friend Ron stepped in and posted for me. I worked quite a bit at the range and tried to squeeze in some time in the shop. Josh has been doing most of the work with me coaching. We we have worked on and off this huge cross for some time and they were finally to hang it so we got it finished and delivered. Made of Solid Cherry and dyed a blood red for the Blood of Christ and the white Maple down the center to represent the purity. They got if hung and said it was very heavy. They had access to the back of the wall and put blocking in to attach it from the back. We’re about ready to start assembly of the Red Elm Kitchen work table. I just like turning the feet and I should get them this weekend. And we are close to finishing a White Oak slab top executive desk. drawers on the left and door on the right with shelves inside. Door fronts will have a live edge on them. A center door and we will be ready to assemble. So so what’s on your agenda this weekend? I love to see your projects and pictures. Share your projects here and show us your plans this weekend. Whatever you you do have fun and be safe.

Note: The wiki page Eastern Redcedar contains for the first time within our wiki, a Patriot Woodworkers image of their own work to demonstrate the "wood" of this species! @John Moody as we all know makes his Green Egg Tables from Eastern Red Cedar, so we featured his work within the wiki page. Neat! United States of America (State Trees) is a sortable table of our nations adopted trees by state. This page is under construction, so it's a tad ugly, but if you ever wanted to know the state trees, well here they are! To sort, just click on the heading of each column to sort by. (read more...)

  8. The big big thaw is on in east central Indiana! It’s a balmy 17 degrees and I suspect the robins will be flying in at any time. Last night the temps began to rise and we got 5 inches of snow. The coldest we got this week was -17 but it was bearable because I keep my shop heated. This week I had 2 major accomplishments other than staying warm. Last Monday, I braved the snow and picked up a Dewalt 735 planer 5hat I bought and I managed to complete a mantle for a client. I’ll install it next week and add a bit of trim to match. So, Patriot Woodworker’s, what’s on your weekend agenda?

Got finis sprayed on the bottom so it should get delivered this weekend. Working on finishing up this kitchen island. Made of Red Elm. First two shelves done. Like one more shelf and the bottom legs then it will go to finishing. So what’s on your agenda this weekend? love to see your projects and how they are going. Whatever you do, have fun and be safe.

  12. We took a week or so off after Christmas to relax and try to reorganize to get ready to begin another year. Last week we got this slab top desk desk back to the top of the list. It got put on hold waiting on the customer to do a house remodel and now they are ready. It was going to have a live edge on both sides but that has now changed and we had to square up one side. We we got the legs built and just sat them on the top. They are not in place in the picture. Added a support stretcher under the top and secure the legs with some brackets underneath. It is ready this weekend to move into the finishing room to get an epoxy satin finish on the top and a spray satin finish on the bottom. Whats on your agenda this weekend? I love to see all that you are working on so share your projects with us and thanks for doing so. Whatever you do this weekend, have fun and be safe!

Community News Our raffle for the Bassett Family was a success, we want to thank everybody involved and those who contributed funding and treasure to this project. We have a few happy winners of some great prizes and many who walked away with the satisfaction that they contributed to this family and their Christmas Season. As the final proceeds are being sent to the family today, and as we close the books on yet another project for a wounded warrior family, within this week we'll have a publicly displayed disclosure of how the proceeds were used for this project along with some great images of the family, and some images of some beautiful crafts that were sent to us by one of our woodworkers and his wife here, for the Bassett Family.

And to our new members, welcome to your new community folks! Our Wiki One of my latest projects for our wiki is bringing information into our wiki from the out of print book written by Shelley E. Schoonover (U.S. Forester) "American Woods", public domain. I've added a few more pages with some of our favorite softwoods or conifers published in our wiki. Balsam Fir - One of the ten firs native to the United States, is a medium-sized and short-lived tree but an important one, nonetheless, in both the United States and Canada. It is a beautiful, symmetrical, heavily-foliaged tree, doubtless the best shaped evergreen, comparable to the Colorado Blue Spruce. Read more... Bald Cypress - The Baldcypress is a well balanced and attractive, long lived tree which may grow to large size. It is one of the deciduous conifers. It grows on wet stream banks and low land as well as in swamps and attains its largest size in the south. Read more... California Incense Cedar - A well formed tree 75 to 125 feet tall and 18 to 40 inches in diameter. This is the only species of this genus growing in the United States. Read more... Northern White Cedar - A tree of medium size and of slow growth.The tree inhabits swamps and generally grows in such dense stands that its growth is greatly retarded. Read more... Western Red Cedar - A large, long-lived, slow-growing tree of the Pacific northwest. It attains heights of over 200 feet with a trunk diameter up to 16 feet. It has a wide buttressed or “swell butted” base, a long, clear trunk and a narrow, dense, conical crown. Read more...

  14. Here we are on the first Friday of a brand new year. I trust everyone survived all of the New Year’s festivities. I wonder how long it will take us to write 2019 instead of 2018....... This year rings in with a full range of shop activities for yours truly. Tomorrow, I have an appointment to measure a semi circular mantle for a home renovation here in town. It should be challenging but fun. I have a California king bed to build and a pair of cherry bookcases for a local dentist’s office. So, Happy New Year! What’s on you Patriot Woodworker Weekend Agenda?
