  1. I'm going to jump in here and steal my good friend John Moody's post. I think he got bit by the solar eclipse bug. Speaking of which, If y'all are going to view the eclipse be careful. For some reason, I can't get too excited about it. O.K., on to the weekend since we're halfway through it. If you've been following my thread on the bookshelf chair you'll know that I'm knee deep into this big ole' boat anchor and as of 11:00 am this morning, the base is on and all I have to do before staining is add a little trim and do some light sanding on it. Luckily, I work out five days a week so I'll be strong enough to carry it. So, now comes the question. What's on your agenda for this pre-eclipse weekend?
  2. Last week sorta got away from me and we had an outdoor show on Friday evening. As usual the weather was iffy on rain but the forecast was for it to be gone by 5:00. So we thought we had it made but about 7:00 pm, while I'm doing a credit card sale, the bottom falls out. It rained so hard everything we had got soaked, including my iPad, which actually worked after we got it dry. So we spent last weekend and the first of the week drying out everything. Rain drops make spots on the cutting boards so we have been sanding and re-oiling. I also also finished and finally got my order of figure 8's to attaché the top to the Cherry and Maple tables I had been working on. Today they shipped out to MA. and should arrive on Wednesday. The Cherry really came out often the clear finish was sprayed on. Now it is on to other jobs and more work. I also attended a Smith & Wesson school last week and I'm now a certified Armorer for the M&P's. Thats about it for my shop right now, what's on you agenda? I along with everyone here love to see your projects and hear about the process, so post those pictures and share with us you weekend agenda.
  3. After vacation I got home and it seemed everything I touched broke. Started to cut the grass and the mower wouldn't run, got out the weed wacker and it wouldn't crank, and then the AC stopped. So needless to say I got behind a little bit getting everything back up and running. Today I worked on building two small round Cherry tables. I got the panel glued for the two tops. and the blanks make fir the legs legs and got the mortises cut in all the legs. And I have the pieces cut for the stretchers and need to cut the tenons. Everthing will be ready for finish tomorrow. What's on your agenda this weekend. We all love to hear about your projects and see the pictures.
  4. For the past week, Ron and I along with our wives have been relaxing just outside Gatlinburg, Tn in the Smokie Mountains. What a relaxing time we have had. Each morning waking up to a wonderful view. We also have a local Black Bear that has residence here close to the house where we are staying. He seems to pay us a visit in the mornings between 7:00 and 8:00 and we have yet to see him with our own eyes. We have gotten the pictures off the security cameras and we have been sitting only feet away in the house and didn't notice him. He decided to check out my truck bed the other morning. Here are his mudding paw marks and he did no damage to my vehicle. Then he wonders off around the house un-noticed by us. Ron and I took a little time the other day at the indoor shooting range here. After I shot a couple of mags we sited in his AR-15. Other than a lot of relaxing and riding through the mountains that has been about it for us. We will head out for home on Sunday so not shop time for us this weekend. What about you all, what's on your agenda for this weekend?
  5. I have my good friend and fellow admin John Moody cutting wood for me so I thought I'd be a nice guy and post his usual Friday post. The last couple of weeks have been crazy around my place. The LOML has had me installing tile in the entryway, kitchen and utility room of our house and laminate in the front living room and down the hallway to the bedrooms. For those who have been in our home, you'll get the picture. Though I still have to complete the utility room, I'm 95% finished. The week after next, the carpet installers will come in and complete the rest of the house. Its been an expensive June around here with new carpet and a new van but I feel privileged to keep the economy humming. Next week we'll take a brief respite from the shop while we chase bears in Tennessee but I have a show coming up and stock must be built. So, as we conclude the month of June and head into July, what's on your woodworking agenda this weekend?
  6. Happy Father's Day weekend to you all. Looks like I'll be moving lumber most of tomorrow, picking up a load of cedar to do two Green Egg Tables before the 4th. Today after getting off work at the shooting range we finished the light sanding of the live edge shelves for the customer with the desk. I finishing the legs for a walnut desk for the manager at the range this weekend also. Sunday I plan on a little R&R and maybe a little shooting time without working, although today I did get in around 250 rounds. So so what is on your agend for this Father's Day weekend? We all love hearing about your projects and plans so share them. I want to wish all the Fathers on here a great day. I hope you have an awesome weekend. Remember what ever you do have fun and be safe. Happy Fathers Day!!!!
  7. I finished finishing the drop leaf table this week and got it delivered. The table is just over 100 years old and had been painted white. Got all the paint off and applied a Standard Brown Walnut dye then sprayed a couple of coats of Shellac and then four coats of General Finishes Enduro-Var. i didnt assemble it because the where picking it up in a car. As for my weekend end there will be a little time with John Deere, stacking some lumber and then picking up a load of Red Elm. I hope to get a little shop time in but I my be at the barn stacking lumber all weekend with the donkeys. So so what is on your agenda? We love to see your projects and hear about your weekend plans. Post those pictures and share with us your projects. Whatever you do this weekend have fun and be safe!!
  8. I'm standing in for my southern buddy and fellow admin, John Moody today. He has a full Friday between working as a range officer at a local shooting range and he has a "First Friday" artisan's show today so tag, I'm It. I'm sure he'll chime in here at some point. This week was been crazy busy for me but I've only spent a few hours in the shop. My daughter and son in law are celebrating their 20th anniversary in Hawaii so we are taking care of the grand girls for a couple of weeks. They range in age from 11 to 16 and are a riot to be around. When they hit our pool, I sneak to the shop. I'm trying to build stock for a July show right now and this week I built a prototype walnut charging station. So, on this holiday shortened week I have to ask, "What's on your weekend agenda?"
  9. Last week I was pushing to get ready for a big craft show we do here in Florence. A two day show over the weekend and I was trying to get my inventory up. I made about 20 cutting boards week before to go along with what I already had made. At one point on Saturday, I was thinking I didn't have enough to get us through Sunday, but the clouds began to build and the rain set in about 2:30 and it just about ended the day. Sunday wasn't bad but it was suppose to rain all day and it didn't but people had already decided it was going to and so the crowd as a little smaller, but we still did good. Not it is back to making more boards to be ready for our next event. This was our booth setup. These folks came in Friday evening and worked a while on setting this booth up. It was just across from us and down a couple f spaces. Not real portable but they were dry when the rain started. So this weekend I'm heading to the large Flea Market in Nashville to get more antique knives we put with the cheese boards. Sold almost out of those at the show. Then in Sunday, we are headed to Huntsville to a large gun show to spend the afternoon. I thinking on Monday, Memorial day we will take a day and just rest and have some fun. How about you all, what is on your agenda for this long holiday weekend? Shop time, BBQ, family time and just relaxing? All of us here at TPW love to hear about your projects and plans, so share with us what's on your agenda for the Memorial Day Weekend? Remember, whatever you do, have fun and be safe!
  10. Fridays are supposed to be a wind down time for most folks but today has been chaotic for John Moody and myself. John is setting up a show and asked me to post a "Friday Post" and my wife and I sitting at my son's home while he is in the emergency room with a gall bladder attack. At any rate, IT IS FRIDAY. What does the weekend hold for y'all? Shop time, mowing, loafing? After finishing my big cabinet job, I spend the first part of the week building a shadow bow and building 6 frames that will hold a license plate. My 50th class reunion is this year (yes, I'm THAT old) and I'm the chairman of our fundraising committee so we are selling license plates with our high school mascot on them. I donated my time and material to build a few to generate a bit of revenue. Well, that's what John and I are doing so I have to ask, "What is on your agenda for the weekend?"
  11. We have a large craft show next weekend so this weekend and next week will be filled with making inventory. As I posted in another post I finished the Walnut vanity and shelf. I'm also ready to move the Oak cabinet doors into the finishing room. So that's about it for me this weekend and next week. How about you, what's on your Patriot Woodworker agenda? We all love to see your project and hear about your weekend plans. And Hapoy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there. What ever you do, have fun and be safe!
  12. This has been one of those weeks that I have been busy as can be and don't feel like I accomplished much. I have about four projects in various stages and none of them completely finished. Oh well, I at least know that I have something to do each day. I have a batch of Pizza Peels that are in the process, but not finished right now. I am still sanding on the Walnut Vanity top and Kitchen shelf. The Oak cabinet doors were waiting on the cutting boards to come out of the finishing room. I did get a batch of ten cutting boards finished. Five medium size and five small size boards. So this weekend I am going to try to get stain on the Cabinet doors and Sanding Sealer on the Vanity and Kitchen shelf. The Pizza Peels should get finished also this weekend so I'll post pictures of those when done. So what is on your Patriot Woodworker agenda? We all look forward to Friday to see all of the projects you are working on and your plans for the weekend. Post your projects and pictures for all of us to see this weekend. What ever is on your agenda this weekend, have fun and be safe!
  13. Today is Good Friday and this is Easter Weekend. Today I have been working in the shop milling some white oak for rails and stiles for some cabinet doors. I started this sometime back and it got put on hold and now they are ready for them so I'm trying to get them out. Trying to get a few things done today and some yard work tomorrow before my daughter and grandkids arrive for the weekend. Won't be a lot of shop time this weekend and that is okay. Today while I was working I got a surprise visit from some of my beautiful granddaughters. Now that makes any day in the shop special. I could use a lot of visits like this. Family will be here on Sunday and we'll have lunch after church and then spend some time hiding and hunting Easter Eggs with the younger ones. Looks like in our area the weather is good for the weekend to be able to get out. I hope you all have a special Easter Weekend and share with us what's on your agenda? We love to see and hear all about your weekend plans. Now if I can just find those eggs! Happy Easter, He is Risen!!
  14. I got the tops cut off the shadow boxes and at the glass dealer to install the glass in each top. Should get them back this afternoon and finish them up this weekend and ship them out Monday. Tonight I have a show to do and it will be outside. It has been in the 80's all week and today it is in the upper 50's and should be around the lower 50's by the end of the show. I guess we will run the heater and takes jackets tonight. I am hoping to actually get a little yard work done this weekend along with some shop time. Several projects to work on but right now, not sure which one will get drawn from the hat to get a little time. What is on your Patriot Woodworker agenda? We love to see all of your projects and here all about what you are working on. Post your Pictures and tell us all about you weekend plans.
  15. Three months gone from this year, can you believe it? Maple leaves are coming out, grass is green and ready for mowing. I'm not ready for mowing yet though. John Deere needs a tune up first. Today started off so bad. I lost the keys to my three trailers and I was suppose to pick up a load of lumber. So after several hours of looking I purchased new locks and cut the old ones off. As I'm undoing the package I drop one of the new keys on the assemble bench and have no idea where it went. So new locks and I'm already down to one key. But I did pick up the lumber. Walnut, Cherry and Red Oak. i finished he's up the Bread Boards I was working on last weekend. twelve of them. I also started on another Green Egg Table that I will finish this weekend. While working on the Egg Table, I'm also making 18 Oak Shadow Boxes 10x16x4 1/2. Got to miter the corners and then glue them up. This morning I had a crew here pouring concrete to widen my driveway. Wow this has been a busy week and looks like it will continue into the weekend. So what's on your agenda? We love to hear what you are working on so share your agenda and pictures. Im tired and headed to the couch!
  16. As I stated earlier in a post it has been a busy week and that is good. Yesterday was three months since my knee replacement and I am amazed at how well it has done. I am pretty much doing anything I want now and don't think about the knee too much. So with that said, I am way behind on projects in the shop and show season has started so now it is projects for people that come by and inventory for shows. We did two back to back the past two Fridays and sold out of cutting boards so I am pushing to get them made. I usually make six or seven at a time and this batch was six large size cutting boards. I used some of the Walnut that was on the trailer that looked so bad. When it was cut and planed it look really nice. I think I did good on that batch. Got to get the glue off and then start them through the drum sander. I also sold out of Bread Dipping boards so I cut out pieces of Cherry, Walnut and Maple to make a batch of them today. I got this lumber from a lady who's husband passed away. He had the whole trailer loaded planed to 3/4". Not sure what he was going to make but it saves me some time. And I have a bunch of cut off pieces of Cedar from the Cedar Green Egg Tables. So those are going to get cut and made into cedar crates to use up the pieces. I made a few a while back and they sold as soon as I posted them on Facebook. This will let me clear out these pieces from the shop. So that is pretty much my weekend. What is on your agenda this weekend. Weather is getting warmer and with saving all the daylight, I am sure you are getting into the shops so share with us here at TPW what you are working on. We love to see pictures! Whatever is on your agenda have fun and be safe!
  17. A Happy Saint Patrick's Day to y'all. This is John Moody's hairy legged secretary again because he's out doing a show today. While John's making money, I'm spending the day on the phone getting all of my P's and Q's in line with my insurance company because my next job involves a school and they're a bit sticky about liability insurance. Yes, I won a contract for 24 shelf units for a local school corporation and I think this may be just the beginning. I have 40 sheets of birch plywood on order so I get to rest until next Thursday. Tomorrow is an auction day for yours truly so I'll see if I can snag a bargain or two. So, that's my agenda........What's on your agenda?
  18. I'm an official stand-in today. My good friend and fellow admin, John Moody, is doing a 2 day show where the cell service is less than stellar so he asked if I would ask y'all, "What's on your weekend agenda"? I finished a pair of bookcases this week and was just about ready to finish a smaller one for summer show stock when my son asked if I would tag team an oak side table with him. As we we cutting out the table, his wife wandered into the shop and spied the oak bookcase that I was building. Needless to say, it will have a new home soon in my son's living room. Sigh...... Next week I'll be starting the largest single project I've ever tackled. I've been commissioned to build 24 storage racks for a local school corporation. Here's a couple of pictures of my DIL's new bookcase and the side table we have started.
  19. Today is the start of the show season and we have our first outdoor show tonight. Should be nice, it is made 50's today and low is mid 30's. I'll take the patio heater and it will be nice and warm around my booth. This week has been finishing up some inventory and I got seven edge grain cutting boards finished and I made 30 6"x6" cheese boards. We tie a vintage or antique spreading knife to each one. So today I got the trailer loaded and everything is ready. I will setup around 4:00 and the show runs from 5:00 to 8:00 in downtown. They close down about three block and vendors setup on the sidewalk. This weekend will be working on other projects in the shop. I have 18 oak shadow boxes to build and ship to WI. They will be ready in about two weeks, pictures to come. The nice part is I don't have to stain them, they are going to do that. I'm hoping to pick up a load of cherry lumber tomorrow, buy it depends on getting some lumber my son got off the trailer in time to go after it. I guess this weekend will be lumber moving for us. So what is on your agenda this weekend. All of us here at TPW and interested in your projects and plans for the weekend. Share your pictures and projects with us. I'm off to get ready and put on my warm clothes. See you all later this weekend.... Remember have fun in your shop and work safe.
  20. It was 81 degrees here today and the high tomorrow will be mid 50's. We are having so strange February weather. Today's high broke a record from the 1930's. Oh well it was a nice day to be outside today and I really enjoyed it. Went out and setup the target stands from shooting this weekend. I have a couple of new toys I am wanting to run a clip or two through even if it is a bit cooler, it will be sunny! So this past week I got a lot done in the shop, at least for me right now. Yesterday was 2 months since my TKR and i'm doing great. I got a load of lumber off the trailer and stacked at the "wood stash". I am waiting on the mill to call and pick up a load of Cedar for four tables I have to build. I also purchased a 5th wheel trailer full of cherry that I have got to do unload and load onto my trailer. I just love lumber! I did finish a batch of cutting boards this week. Last year I purchased a dual drum sander from Grizzly and I really love it. 100 grit on the front drum and 150 on the back drum. I sanded six cutting boards front and back start to finish in about 50 minutes. I went over them will the ROS and then a nice oil down. The new drum sander took at at least a days work off me. I really like the one in the middle with just a hint of sap wood in the walnut and the pattern it made when put together. The other one that really stood out was this one. I like the spalting that was starting on the maple board. I positioned it close to the center with a touch around the edges. Makes for nice one of a kind boards. Someone commented that there was never any sawdust in the floor in my pictures. So I took a picture before I cleaned up just to show there is sawdust all around even with three DC's. Well it will clean up and that is fine with me. So what is on your agenda this weekend? All of us here at TPW love to see your pictures and hear about your projects. We all do some of the same things and a lot of different things so it is nice to see what others are working on. You never know how you might inspire someone else to give it a try. We are keeping two of the granddaughters this weekend so I'm not sure how much time I will get in the shop, but my plans are to make a batch of cheese boards. Whatever your plans, have a great weekend and remember to work safely.
  21. This has been the first week I actually started back to doing woodworking in the shop. Still keeping my time to half days but starting to get some work done. This is week I cut out, jointed and planed pieces for six cutting boards. It was nice being back at the table saw and working through the process. Thursday I got them glued into the long strips to make end grain boards. The best part of the week was finally getting the roof on the shop shingled. My neighbors son does roofing and I hired him to do the roof for me since it will be a while before I'm ready to be on my knees. This weekend my grandson is staying with us so not sure how much shop time I'll get. Hoping to get those boards cut into strips and glued in the end grain. We we are looking at mid 70's for temps this weekend. Should break a few records for February. What's on your agenda this weekend? You know all of us here at TPW love to hear and see what you are working on. What ever is on your agenda have a fun and safe weekend.
  22. Well I have had a pretty good week and only spent half days in the shop. I went in then and rested and iced the knee down and all has been good. It has been nice to be actually back to doing a little work and not just spending the day sitting around with my leg propped up. I finished the Lego table and it was picked up yesterday and is headed to Pensacola, Florida. It has four of the Lego bases epoxied to the top and they wanted the legs so they could be removed so they are screwed into brackets on the bottom. Today I spent the day making stands for targets for our security team to go shoot and qualify this weekend. So I got all the parts cut to make seven but I only got five put together. I am planning on getting the other two put together in the morning and the heading over to the gun show before heading out to the range. So that is it for me. I'll also be attending my granddaughter's dance program tonight and my grandson's birthday this weekend. How about you all, what is on your agenda this weekend? You know we all love to see the projects you all are working on, so post those pictures and share your weekend plans. I'll be checking in and see how you all are doing this weekend. If you haven't yet, be sure to get out and get your Valentine something before the last minute. Have a great weekend and what ever you do, work safe!
  23. So here we are just past Ground Hog's day and I'm not sure what it was like in your area, but here there were no shadows to be seen, it was raining. Six more weeks or winter, who knows, it is cold here today, but just like always, it is suppose to be in the 60's tomorrow. I finished my therapy on the knee replacement on Wednesday and they said all is good. Of course he also said, "John, you didn't have a tooth pulled, this is major surgery, take it slow." So that is what I am trying to do spend a few hours in the morning doing what I can and then resting. I was trying to go at it pretty hard at first and it just wasn't working so I am going to try it their way now. My wife is joining me in the shop tomorrow to get started on a few projects we are close to finishing and with her, it will save me some steps and maybe we can get them finished. I need to get one more coat of red paint on the Lego table and then I can attach the Lego bases and it will be ready for pickup. It has been nice having the finishing room to put it in and work on it as I can. They wanted the legs to be able to be removed so I have the brackets ready to install on the bottom and the legs have lag screws in the top and can be put on or taken off. We will be putting hardware on the display case doors and taking them out to test fit before I install glass and find out that I might have made an error in sizing, something I know no one ever does. For some reason this has been haunting me while I have been laying around so I am ready to put this to rest. So what about you, what are you all working on this weekend? As always, we here at TPW love to see all of your projects and hear about your weekend agenda. So share with us you weekend plans. I'm sure Sunday evening will include some super bowl time for many. Have a wonderful weekend and I hope you get some shop time. If so, as always, be safe whatever you are doing.
  24. Here we are in the dead of winter and it is cold outside. They just got my gas line run back to the shop the day before my knee surgery and so I am using electric oil heaters in the shop and they just don't do what the gas heat did. I've got to get on that and get some real heat back in the shop before it is AC time! But at this time all I am really doing is some tool maintenance and straighten the place up a bit. Why is it that every flat surface will become completely covered with stuff and you can't see the surface? Well I have found the surface on part of my back bench, but not all of it yet. Saturday my wife and I are heading to Huntsville, AL to a gun show. As with tools, nothing I "need" but who know what might call my name while I am there. I will do my best to be ready and listening as hard as possible in case something were to call out my name. Sunday will be a little more tool tune up and getting ready to actually see if I am ready next week to turn them on and make a little saw dust. Nothing big and no long days, but I'm ready to see if I can do a little woodworking. What is on your agenda this weekend? All of us here at TPW love to hear what you are doing and your plans. You never know who you might motivate into a project. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and whatever is on your agenda, please be safe!
  25. Today I was finally able to up and down the steps in sequence. Four weeks today since my knee replacement. I did spend a little time in the shop today cleaning up and putting things away that got left out before surgery. Hoping to to spend a little more time this weekend and start working on a project that is still on the bench. Taking it in short times and not making big plans. So how about you all, what's on your agenda this weekend? All of us love to hear about your projects and see pictures. Looking forward to seeing what you all are working on this weekend.
