  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! Here we are, Tuesday, I completely forgot the Monday topic! I had a government holiday off yesterday, thought yesterday was Sunday. Composing this short topic from the cab of my work truck. How y'all doing today! And good morning!
  2. Finally some cool weather and some shop time this week. I have been working most of the week on the CNC machine, but I did get another set of cutting boards ready for the next glue up today. I found a guy that had a 3D set of grips available for download and they are very nice models. For the moment I’ve lost his name and link, but I’ll go back through my history and find it to give him credit. I cut one plain set from walnut to try them out and check sizing. I did have to open up the screw hole just a bit but it was close. The other sets ive made this week are still in the blank so I can flip them and made a cut on the back. Figured I’d run several sets before I flipped them so I could do them all at once. So so here is a set from Walnut with an American flag. I did the flag for this set. Bloodwood with checkering. Maple set with checkering. Two sets of Bloodwood with dots. Bloodwood with texturing. Here is a picture of them all. I’ve created several more options that I just need to run. Tomorrow I'm headed to Birmingham to shoot in an IDPA match with a friend. That’s pretty much my weekend. What’s on your agenda? Really love to see and hear about your projects and agenda. what ever you do, have fun and be safe.

  4. The heat is still with us here in Alabama and we are in a drought situation. Seems like in the spring it rained every day and we had record flooding. But it’s supposed to be cooling off here beginning this weekend and I must say I’m ready for some cool weather, but not yet ready for cold weather. This weekend I’ll be gluing these cutting boards in the end grain configuration. Starting to get get ready for our big end of the year Christmas show. Seems strange to say that with it being upper 90’s today. But it is that time. In the morning I’ll cut them into strips and glue them. I’m finishing this large thick Cherry Mantle. It has a bracket so that it looks to be a floating mantle. These work great as I used them before on some floating shelves. I routed the back so the bracket will be flush on the back and it has four rods that go about 6” into the mantle. I left it a little proud here so I can get it out. The bracket will get mounted to a 2x12 that is in the wall then the mantle will slide onto the rods. They are a tight fit but that’s what you want. Just need to do a bit more sanding and then spray a clear coat on. It’s supposed to have a somewhat rough look. Im also getting started making some 1911 grips this weekend on the CNC. Cut these this afternoon out of a nice small piece of walnut. Tomorrow my my son and his new wife are having a celebration of their marriage. They actually got married back in July while we were in the Mountains. Tomorrow we are having friends and family over to celebrate with them and to pray over their marriage and family. Then we’re having BBQ and fellowship. Thats my weekend agenda, what’s on yours? Share your woodworking and other plans and pictures with us. We love to see and hear all about your weekend plans. Whatever you do this weekend, have fun and be safe.

Featured Image USMC Veteran Erik Florip is a tool maker, a fine tool maker of hand saws, and marking gauges. "I started woodworking in 2012 while active duty in the US Marine Corps. Not long after getting the woodworking bug I started shopping for a handsaw to give dovetails a shot. I found a lot of high price options, being a hobbyist, I couldn’t justify spending a lot of money on a new handsaw. I opted for an old Disston found at an estate sale. I learned how to sharpen on this saw and was a good user after the restoration. After this I got the idea to try building my own saw…it wasn’t pretty but it worked. I was hooked on tool making."

  10. Seems like this year has been flying by. Here we are the last weekend in September, fall is here, football season in full swing and a good time to get in the shop. So I got my digital duplicator hooked up on my CNC and ran the first test. It saves the file in a special format and you have to register the unit to get the software to be able to view the file and export it so you can ring it into VCarve. So to keep this short, it said you had to list the serial number to register it. Well I spent two days going over the piece, the box, the manual and there was no serial number. Called TS and they said it didn’t have a serial number but they would send me the software. A day later and still no software so another call to TS. They told me I had to connect the CNC to the computer via usb cable to register and then it would send me the link to the software. Well the comics in my office and the CNC is 30’ away in the shop. No usb cable that long. So I had to dissembled the computer and move it to the shop, connect it and register. By the way, they emailed me a serial number to use. So long story, I got the software and was finally this week able to see my first test. I had it to duplicate a 1911 grip as my test piece. It was the one for the other side and not the one pictured below. It took just over an hour for it to duplicate. Here red is a screen shot after I was able to import the file. I pretty nice job. I can’t wait to really put this to work and make some pieces. I have a small piece of molding I need to duplicate to repair an antique headboard. So that’s what I’ve been working on. This weekend we’re headed to Nashville to the flea market. What’s on your agenda this weekend? Share with us your projects and pictures. Love to read about and see what you all are working on. Thanks to @Ron Dudelston for putting up the Friday post for me. I was in Talladega and not Stock car racing, but at the 26th annual Glock Sport Shooting Foundation match. A year ago was my first time to complete in this event and I was 183rd out of 253 entries. This year I made some improvements and finished 98th out of 250 entries. In some places it was hundreds of a second separating places. So I was very proud of my improvements. Now just got to move up that much more next year. Have a great weekend and whatever ever your doing, have fun and be safe,
  11. Last Saturday we did a show near here. The weather was perfect and ladies came ready to buy. We also took orders for a specialty cutting board, a walnut tray, a cremains box (a dog), a very large waffle trivet and a small cabinet. Needless to say, it’s bee busy this week. Unfortunately, I have to be a pallbearer for a friend today but we’re going junkin’ tomorrow.’ So, whats on your weekend agenda?

  14. Well it’s been a crazy couple of weeks. I started coughing a couple of weeks back and thought it to just be allergies at first then it kept on so I thought it was a cold and I went to the doc-n-a box and was told I had a sinus infection. Well two days later and a lot more coughing and I had an appointment with my regular Dr for a regular checkup. He walks in and hears me coughing and says I have Whooping cough. He said his wife had it and he had been listening to that cough for weeks. So he puts me on more meds and some strong cough syrup and I was either coughing or sleeping. Anyway I seem to be much better, only an occasional cough not the long multiple cough. So I got out in the shop last night and finished up a couple of things that have been waiting on me. I did this shadow box for a friend who wants to display an antique Winchester. He’s also a Florida Gator fan so he wanted the background to be blue. I couldn’t find Florida Blue so this is as close as it gets. No door and the hooks just came in today so I’ll get them installed tomorrow. It just an open shadow box. This weekend they are having Dragon boat races here in town. Teams have been arriving since the middle of the week. I had a team at the shooting range today just having some fun and waiting for the competition to began. So I was ask to take the Dragon and make a base for it, just keep it simple. So so I had this nice piece of Quartersawn White Oak that I thought would look really nice. The rays in the Oak almost looked like waves in the water. Just sprayed a clear finish and sealed the bark with some Acrylic. I thought it looked good and I kept it simple. Tomorrow I have a digital duplicator coming for my CNC. Going to spend some time with it and try to get some cutting boards cut out. What’s on your agenda this weekend. I love to hear about and see all you weekend projects.

  17. Been a while since I put up a Friday post due to some family and personal health issues. But I’m trying to get back in the groove today. My son thankfully has been able to keep a lot of things going in the shop with me only offering some advice at times. He has really progressed and still as all of us has things to learn. Recently he designed and built this without any input from me. A customer contacted us about a entertainment center and gave him the details. I think it turned out get and was very proud of his work from start to finish. It was to be rustic with sliding barn style doors. They were very happy with it and it looked great in place. This past week he has been working on a book case. He had it almost finished here except for the edging on the shelves. It is getting stained ebony. It was in The finishing room this morning but I forgot to get a picture. About the the only thing I worked on lately was making “X’s” for a TEDx conference for the speakers. I got a long bit for the CNC and cut these out of 2x12’s since they wanted them painted red. The bed bed on the machine is 25”x25” and they had to be 9” tall so I cut two out of each piece. I had had to make a total of 12 and get them painted red, but let the grain show. So 12 “X’s” painted red and then laser engraved with the conference name and speakers name. So that’s about it for right now in the shop. Hoping to finally get to spend some time this holiday weekend in the shop. What’s on your agenda for this holiday weekend and last official weekend of the summer? i look forward to hearing and seeing your projects. Work safe and have fun.

Featured Image The shop is located in a partially renovated 1800’s barn. Renovations consisted mainly of the addition of an 1890’s base burner stove, some insulation, and patching enough holes to keep the sparrows out. John uses authentic tools whenever practical. He has a great collection of 1800s to early 1900s spoke shaves, hand drills, block planes, lathe tools, etc. When it isn’t appropriate to use an authentic tool (because of it’s fragility, value or rarity) he tries to use tools made by craftspeople like himself who make hand-made wood working tools in the traditional style. The only power tools in the shop are his lathe and the table saw, which is only used for breaking down large pieces of material so they can be managed. Source: Brighton Woodshop

My weekend Besides getting into the shop a little bit this weekend to work on my sons Cherry Desk, we also took a trip around the county with the family, me, mama and the kids all piled up in our car and headed out to the desert to consume some tasty Date Shakes, milk shakes made from dates of the palm. Our desert is full of farmers raising date palms and selling those tasty dates all over the world. We dropped by one of our favorite spots on the way home, Lake Hemet up in our local mountains and walked around talked, and just had an easy time. Our youngest daughter is heading off to the Army, I can't believe how fast time has gone by, it feels like I just never got enough time with her as she grew up so fast, I feel that way with all my kids, just not enough time, it's almost a guilty feeling inside that there is just so much more I want to do with them, but they have grown so fast. My youngest girl on my right is leaving for the Army by the end of next month, I am going to miss her dearly, my oldest girl is entering her last year of college this fall, and my boy is a big sophomore. Of course mama is behind the camera.

Morris is 86 yrs young today! Me and the family headed up to his place yesterday, took up a bunch of Kentucky Fried Chicken and some birthday cake and we had lunch together and he blew out the candles on his cake. He had plenty of leftovers as we planned, so he should not have to cook dinner for two nights and he's got plenty of leftover birthday cake. So to all of you, have a wonderful week ahead, and be safe in all you do! Dad and I. He's holding his own! Don't look a year over 60 if you ask me!
