  1. Ok Patriot Woodworker's,how'd yall do! What did Santa bring you and your shop! We had a pretty mellow Christmas this year, mama and me promised each other we'd not exchange gifts, but we did manage a couple nice ones for our kids. An Ipod 5h Gen for our youngest girl along with some books she wanted. Then we got a set of books that our oldest girl wanted, she loves the Bill O'reilly series of killing books, Killing Lincoln, Killing Patton etc. So we set her up with those and she wanted some books by William Buckley and a hand full of other books. So now she can go to school armed to the t
  2. Well... The Old Jail pen making project is in full swing! A very large box of pen making supplies arrived and was brought to the basement shop. We spent last Thursday evening gluing tubes into place. Didn't get all 100 glued up- even with the fans running, the fumes were getting to a toxic level. From this point, we split the work. The "boss" took this box back to his shop for trimming and turning. He doesn't have a sander so I lent him my barrel trimmer. After the glue dried (thick CA), I set up my sanding station and trimmed the bla
  3. Been working at school this week getting computers ready for the kids so no lathe work for me. I did help a friend finish up a cork screw handle by drilling the hole for the metal "screw" to fit into the handle. He turned the handle into a shape that sort of resembled a football. Once turned, it was quite a job to hold the piece level and square for drilling. The instructions suggested a "V" block. That worked but it was still wobbly due to the lack of support on each end. We used little wedges to add support and the drilling went OK. It would have been better to predrill th
  4. Been a busy week in the shop but not too much wood turning. A friend asked if I would show/sell some stuff at his church's event. Seems they are looking for some vendors to attract folks to the event. I have never done anything like this but if it helps his church, I'm game. My biggest problem- as with most hobby woodworkers- is fairly pricing my stuff. Anyway, I've made some small (5 x 7) laminated cheese board. Have some bottle stoppers and of course the old standby- rolling pins. I needed to make some more rolling pin wall holders so that's where I'm at now. Lots of neat st
  5. Good Monday Morning! We hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and perhaps even a productive time in the shop! For now we need to ask that all important question of the week. What did ya get done over the weekend, and what have you planned for the week ahead? Anything is game, woodworking related, non-woodworking related.

  9. A little turning this week. I finally got a chance to finish a pen that was started in the spring. It is an older Woodcraft roller ball kit. The wood is Cocobolo and about 10 applications of BLO and CA. I didn't like the shiny finish so I added an application of Johnson's paste wax. This kit is very similar to the fountain pen kit. Which, someone liberated mine. As turners, we really seek the beauty found in spalted wood. The seemingly infinite patterns create turnings that begged to be touched. Well, now, with a little patience, you can make your own spalt
  10. Well, all my pen blank sets have their CA finish and are ready for assembly. To prove I actually do work on the lathe, I made a little video of the process. It is edited to shorten the boredom and the audio is natural. The video shows the process I used to apply the CA and boiled linseed oil finish. A couple of things about the operation. We had considered using a wax finish on these blanks. We found the wood is so soft that just the pressure of applying the Hut PPP wax dented the blank. Even when applying the CA finish, a fingernail touching the surface would dent it. I ended up wea
  11. It has been nonstop relatives for the past week and a half. The only lathe work I have been able to accomplish is helping a turner friend prepare some blanks for cheese knives and bottle stoppers. Here is a link to a recent video from Popular woodworking's Turning section. The video is helpful for us to understand the uses of the basic turning tools. For those of us who have a love/hate relationship with the skew, checkout around 14 minutes. Save Turning!
  12. Fate has been conspiring against me in keeping me away from the lathe BUT tomorrow we start the Old Jail Pens! All of the materials have arrived, the blanks have been cut and drilled. Tomorrow we will glue in the tubes And then the turning begins. In the mean time, the latest edition of the Woodturning On Line newsletter arrived. There is a nice article on what to check when buying a used lathe as well as several turning projects- on for the Mrs. and one for the kids. You can read the entire newsletter here-http://www.woodturningonline.com/index.php. Safe Turning!
  13. Dear Patriot Woodworker's and visitors. We are featuring videos we have found to represent the major wars in our nations history. Each day we'll feature a video that will honor each major war up through Memorial Day. The videos will be placed at the top center of our community site here on The Patriot Woodworker. We scour Youtube to find meaningful videos so that we may in some small way express our thanks, and honor those who have fallen. To those who have paid the ultimate price, we can never repay your sacrifice, but to only live as good and honorable as we can, and to
  14. I know it just be me, but it seems like the time just flies by these days. Can you believe that here we are the last weekend of March, the end of the first quarter of this new year? Wow. Well for those of you in the North, the buttercups are up and it will be in the 70's here today. Time to get out the John Deere and ready it for mowing. But it is still a great time to get out in the shop and spend some time with the tools and wood and put together some nice projects. As it seems to be, I am always behind and this weekend is no different. I picked up a load of Ro
  15. Can you believe it? Spring is actually here. Yep, it arrived yesterday and it was a beautiful day here in North Alabama. Temps were in the mid 60's, not a cloud in the sky, I think I am feeling better already, well except now that things are blooming I can't breath. Oh well got to always have something. So we have a great weather weekend coming up and it will be a good time to get in some shop work. If it has been too cold for you then maybe you can now get out there and get some saw dust going on. It is also a good time to get out and start looking for some rust. Open air markets will st
  16. After a busy week, I think I will take a bit of time and just do some shop clean up and I have a trailer load of Maple that has to get stickered and stacked. Very little woodworking this weekend for me. Thank you all very much for the wonderful comments on the Cherry Blanket Chest project. I hope you enjoyed the pictures and the commentary. It has been a fun project to do. Since I didn't do a throw back Thursday I will show you a little picking my wife and I didn't this past weekend. This is a nice very old Walnut Buffet. And then we got the table and Ch
