The idea was simple. Build the bench, then have kids write their name on the edge of a piece of basswood held in the bench’s leg vise, then plane off the shaving (along with their name) and place it in a box for a drawing the next day. The winner would take the bench home with them."

Source: The Northmens Guild Featured video At the August 2nd-4th (2013) in the far away of the Latvia (Latgale) couple of same minded friends came together on a hewing "Jam Session" with their families and helped to start rising a sheeps barn for one carpenter living and working in the self sufficient farm. Most of the hand tools and axes used were made by John Neeman Tools. We have been hewing also with some old Austrian and Latvian goosewing hewing axes. The timber we work with is spruce. Many thanks to all of the people who helped to organise this event. Source: Northmen Guild videos

Featured image An incredible collaboration of art between husband and wife. See the full story here at House Brothers Project. Frank and Lally wanted to create a work of art that would be a composite of their individual mediums. The concept evolved into a unique, powerful sculpture they named Nechasin. Pronounced, nay-Cha-seen, a Lenape ~ Delaware name meaning 'to be watchful'. This mixed media sculpture is a testament of 18th century culture. Originally Frank imagined a rifleman or other entity that may have carried the sword, but as the idea evolved, Lally's artwork dictated that the piece should be Native American, specifically Delaware. This tribe was known for fierceness and tenacity as warriors, however, they preferred to choose a path of peace when possible. The sculpture incorporates a number of Frank and Lally's pieces, including a rifle, tomahawk, powder horn, and quillwork. Its head and hands are a composite of carved wood overlaid with mosaic bone and sculptured ivory. The body is willow-bough framework covered with cotton batting and homespun linen.

Please tell us what's happening in your shops, your life, and any events going on with you. Thank you for being here folks! I had a semi productive time in the shop this weekend, got a good start on my Gun Range Shooting Bench for my son and I. We'll use it to shoot off of for sighting in, only spent a few hours on it, gluing the boards together, and getting some edges glued and nailed to the sides to help provide rigidity and to just give it a nice strong appearance. I'll install folding legs on it, and maybe a small drawer on the front for small "possibles and what not's". It was my dads 87th birthday on August 12th, but we drove up Sunday to his home in the mountains and visited, we brought up lunch, and we had a birthday cake for him, below is Dad with my wife, and my two kids, our other daughter is away in the Army, so she isn't seen in many of our most recent photos anymore . But Grandpa was happy, and he enjoyed his day. I also want to thank you all for the wonderful wishes you sent for the passing of my Army buddy, it's been a rough week last, his family has a long road ahead of them, I want to thank you all for your prayers.

Featured link Our featured links are website links added by staff and members, add your favorite links today at "Links Directory" Featured download Featured video This morning I thought we'd change things up a little bit, with a featured video instead of an image. Selfishly (my new interest) I have installed this video about a young man who builds Flintlock rifles from scratch, from the forging of the barrel, to the carving of the stock. Wallace Gusler was a well known gunsmith for period rifles, he has passed away but he left behind a legacy that is honored and sought after to this day. This film made in 1968, was shown in many high school wood shops and metal shops back in the day, an educational video. As woodworkers we have much in common with the gunsmith, and in this video you won't be disappointed. I sat down yesterday and finally watched the video from beginning to end, and loved it, it's almost an hour long, I know many just don't have the time to sit and watch a suggested one hour video, but if you find yourself in an "interested" mood, and you have an hour to spare, you'll love the craftsmanship that this young man at the time possesses, it's amazing what he knows, his talent is hard to find today, only a handful of gun builders can do what he did. Enjoy!

Our Veterans Forum deserves attention, and a host, after all the premise of our existence as a forum is our veterans. Soon we will have our host up and running, he will assume the duties of posting veteran relevant topics such as congressional and presidential bills and laws that effect our veterans, and topics related to anniversaries of wars, battles, and much more. This is a works in progress, how our new host will approach this task is unfolding at the time of this announcement. I am excited. Also, our new host has also volunteered to host the Free For All. So, standby folks for the unveiling of our host. Who can it be?

  19. 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! Our family was very busy this past weekend, had to take our 9 year old doggy to the Emergency Vet, turns out she is very anemic, which typically doesn't turn out too well for dogs, she is on steroids to suppress her immune system in order to let the red blood cells come up, she seems improved, but I feel we are only delaying the inevitable. We will take her in to our family vet and see what he has to say. It's always hard. Little sleep the last few nights, we kind of take turns watching her or being alert as we sleep, if she does take a turn for the worse, we don't want her to deal with her remaining time on earth alone while we are sleeping. If she starts to demonstrate other symptoms of failure, we'll have to take her in and put her down. Life, don't we love it!

Even though her industry is primarily dominated by men, this hasn’t stopped her from making a name for herself in the design world. We discovered her work while perusing the Architectural Digest Show last year and were immediately transfixed by her sculptural wood pieces and detailed woven patterns that are transposed onto chairs, stools and benches. We were excited to include the company’s totems in our cover shoot with Julia Stiles. We stepped into the Peg Woodworking world to find Kate and her two assistants, Sally and Catherine, hard at work polishing, sanding and creating at their studio in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn. We also explored their design studio in Fort Greene. We were fascinated by the process and how you will be too. Read more....

If your house was built before the 1830s, then it’s almost certain to be a timber frame home. An easy way to tell is to go into the basement or attic where the timbers are still visible. There you’ll find thick, usually hand-hewn, beams of locally grown timbers. The frame is completely self-sufficient unlike other forms of framing that require cross-bracing or sheathing to add racking strength and rigidity to the frame." Source: The Craftsman Blog
  21. 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! Yesterday I took a couple hours and finished up a chest for our daughters room, the chest will sit in a window alcove and they'll put "things" in it, just more much needed storage for the girls. I used some really cool old hinges to secure the lid with. I purchased them off Ebay years ago, they are colonial reproduction hinges made in the 40's. There is no joinery on the chest to speak of, my girl wanted this chest this weekend, so I resorted to simple glued up but joints, with countersunk screws, and wood dowel plugs to hide the screws. Dovetails would have been nice, but that would have added another weekend onto the project. Flattened the panels of the chest, this is the lid of the chest. Installing the hinges. (That's me, for you new guys ) And one happy daughter.

  23. Tomorrow is D Day. 76 years ago, a whole bunch of people just like us joined together to stop a demonic evil political system. Most of those people have since died and the few remaining are dying every day. There were horrific losses on both sides, and as always, the civilian population suffered immensely. I don't think it is an impossible dream and hope to want wars of any kind to end. Defense against real threats is necessary but anything else is insanity. hat

  25. 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! Today is a day of reflection for our family, and also a chance to unite and be in each others presence. We are going to do the traditional barbecue but only with the four of us, mama and me, our son and our oldest daughter, our youngest girl is in the Army and away, so we are missing her always and our elderly relatives are staying put in their homes. This will be the first Memorial Day that our baby girl is not with us, and these firsts will continue as along as she is in the Army and away from us. From what our soldier tells us, the command is creating a nice day of barbecue and camaraderie for the troops and their families on base with flags flying half mast. Yesterday myself, mama and our two remaining kids, hiked the woods and enjoyed some peaceful scenery. We walked and walked, until we came upon a thin narrow trail with a sign at the entrance, that stated "Mountain Lion sighted May 21, proceed with caution". We decided to not proceed, in our experience and exposure to this area, our lions can be very aggressive and groups of people don't seem to phase them much anymore, so we just turned around and headed back. But not before me and mama got a picture! The Morris family wishes you all the best today, please be safe, stay sane, and if you are away from home and may have indulged in the fun a little too much, please call a taxi, or ask a sober friend to drive home. Have a good, meaningful Memorial day!
