To the best of my ability I have shown a full disclosure in this topic, if you see any errors or accidental omissions please feel free to call us out here by replying to this topic. I am not perfect, so I may have missed something. Screen shots of the family gifts that you, our generous donors purchased the children. Each child received a gift card for $200.00 Mom and Dad each received a gift card for $200.00, mom is going to use hers for a day at the spa, and dad is an avid movie watcher, he is going to use it to go to the local theater with family a few times. The $100.00 gift card was for their family Christmas dinner. Our initial response to our family after being selected to sponsor Some Quotes from Mom of the family The below quotes are from emails we had with our adopted Family mom, we had many emails together, I could not share more than what I have as in doing so, could exposed the identity of our family. Above all during our communications, I made sure that she understood, no thanks was or is ever necessary, we are simply paying back what we owe to her family. Us Americans and much of the world, we owe our freedoms because of the man of this family who served, who answered the call, and paid the price. For those of us sitting at home and enjoying our lifestyle and freedoms to move about and perform our daily routines and rituals, make no mistake, if it wasn't for the men and women of our United States Military, our lives would change in a heartbeat, without our military, we have no protection, without protection, our shores would be over-run by those who would exploit our weakness if we did not have those who serve our nation, standing post with rifle in hand, and willing to do the un-heard of. Thank you to our adopted family. This family is still paying the price. In closing We want to thank everyone again for their participation in the 2019 Christmas project, we are very proud of how our Patriot Woodworkers, guests, and our wonderful sponsors, Easy Wood Tools, Laguna Tools, and Woodcraft Supply came to the table, and made this all happen. More surprises We had some members of The Patriot Woodworkers ship some physical items to us, to be transferred to our adopted family, I took pictures of those items, and I will post a separate topic relating to those handmade crafts, they are very special, and you'll all love them!

  6. 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! The Morris home has been busy and not so busy at the same time. Our youngest girl came home from Army Basic Training for Christmas, she arrived on the 19th of Dec and she is leaving January 2nd. Apparently these days the Military sends home trainees for Christmas, and the staff for two weeks, whether they are in Basic or AIT (school). So we got to have our baby girl home for Christmas. She has been dealing with some challenges, she was injured and had to be recycled through basic training, she fractured her pelvic bone, and has been marching on it for weeks, so she has had some time to just sit still, relax, and get it on the mend while home, unfortunately it will not be completely healed when she returns but she has vowed (against our wishes) to keep on through the pain, and complete basic training, and when she reports into the school, she'll see medical staff and get healed. But we've had her here at home, and it was one of the best Christmas's ever, there is a special feeling when a child comes home from the military for the Holidays, I know some of you here experience this often. All I can say is, we waited on her hand and foot, and her brother and sister were right in there with us helping her out, and making her stay with us comfortable and happy. Image at left (mama, daughter, me dad) is the night her mama and siblings drove down to San Diego and brought her back from the airport, she flew in from Ft. Jackson SC, she'd been up for a day and half processing out for the trip and traveling! I came home from work to an empty home, and I got her favorite "Dad Meal" ready for her (chili and cornbread) while they made their way home. When she arrived the dinner was ready, the fireplace was going, and the dogs were happy to see her home, and she ate, and ate, her first home cooked meal by me, and she talked and talked, and we just enjoyed the first night with our daughter completely. So that was our Christmas, we hope you all had a wonderful Christmas as well, and you'll roll onto a wonderful New Year as well!

  7. This has been one of the busiest years I’ve had doing woodworking. We have been throughly blessed with work. We did a large three day show before Thanksgiving and we were none stop from then till Christmas Eve. It didn’t come without some long days and nights and a we bit of stress. While working on filling orders, I got home from my part time job one Friday to the news that our Jointer had stopped working. Not the news I wanted to hear and especially on a Friday evening since all the electrical shops are closed on weekends. But after doing some trouble shooting I determined the switch was bad. I jumped on Amazon and found one but didn’t get it till the following Monday. I got it installed and thought all was good but the next day, Tuesday, while running boards for cornhole boards, the planner trips out and shuts down. All my lumber is rough cut that we have cut and dried. So I start trouble shooting the Grizzly planner. I had a tech from Grizzly stay on the phone with me for several hours as we tried different things. He finally decides it’s a capacitor. I take both out and head to the electrical shop. They don’t have them and send me to a motor shop. They test them and tell me they are good. I had a very discussed look on my face and a guy there says I have a tech I can send out. I replied what is the cost. He says 100.00/hour with a three hour minimum. I’m stuck so I told him to send him. The tech come and spends about an hour testing and trying things and finally says the capacitor is in fact bad. I ask what I owe and he says let’s call it a consultation and no charge. I gave him a large cutting board and thanked him. Got the capacitor, hooked it up and nothing. Call the tech(he gave me his cell number) and told him. He came back with a single phase tech and they decided it was bad contacts. He came back after he got off work, changed the contacts and nothing. He worked for two hours on his own time. Determined the motor was bad. Well it’s now Friday evening and no one open to get a motor. I found a listing on Facebook for a industrial salvage place in town that loses they had Grizzly parts. Sent them a message and got a reply he had a motor, but he doesn’t work weekends! However he was going to the shop on Saturday for someone picking up a large piece of equipment. He said he would check and text me if he had one. About 2:00 pm he said he had a motor for 150.00 if I would come right then. So off we went, got the motor, installed it and nothing. He showed us it ran at his shop so I called the tech, sent him a picture and he had me to install a jumper and it ran! We were back up after loosing a week of working time. So we finished 11 sets of custom cornhole boards. I got a cutting board finished and engraved. Then I started on a custom knife block. It gets two owls carved into it and the knives are all large and long. I finally get it done and ready to glue up around midnight on December 23 and when I clamp it the outside board with the owl cracks. They are suppose to pick It up the 24th at 7:00 pm. Exhausted I head to bed. The next day I make up some sawdust and glue and shoot it into the crack with a needle. Clamp it down and give it time to dry. Crack is covered up very good. Sprayed finish on the block, but it didn’t get dry by 7:00. They were okay with it though and are going to get it Monday. So that’s what I’ve been up to. What’s on your agenda this weekend. Share with us your plans. Looking forward to hearing all about your plans and shop. I hope you all all had a Merry Christmas and hoping for a Happy New Year!!

  10. Welcome to Friday the 13th! John Moody is experiencing Friday the 13th up close and personal so I’ve volunteered to put up his Friday post. Seems his planer is still DOA and he has a bona fide electrician looking at it. I spent the week building a pair of 46” wide bookcases that hopefully (fingers crossed) can be delivered before Christmas. They’re built but need to be stained and finished. So gang, what’s on your Patriot Woodworker weekend agenda.

  13. Today has been a long day, started at 4:30 am and lasted till 4:30 pm. Got up early today and hit the deer blind with my son. Had deer everywhere and unable to get a shot. We were bow hunting and just nothing in the right place with a good shot. I had to come in at 8:30 am to go to work at the range. Wow was it busy today. Lots of folks with family in and some came to shoot while others did Black Friday shopping. I got home and laid down to catch a nap and slept longer than I meant too. Oh well it was all good. So we had an awesome show last weekend to finish off the year. We took orders to personalize some of the cutting boards. I thought I would share a few of them with you. I did the engraving with the laser attachment for my Shark HD4 CNC. Its no a powerful laser but does a good job for things like this. So I got them all finished Wednesday so I could spend time with my family Thursday and then get in the short hunt this morning. Tomorrow I’m planning on finishing these natural edge shelves made from White Oak. Four shelves about an inch and three quarters thick, 30 inches long. Just a little more sanding on the edge and they get a clear finish. My wife and I are heading out for a little R&R to celebrate out 45th anniversary and a Christmas present for both of us. Just a little quite time. What’s on your agenda this weekend. I know leftovers are but what about your other plans. I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. I look forward to reading about your plan and projects and family time. Have a great weekend and whatever you do, have fun and be safe.

  15. So for the past three weeks or so we’ve been covered up working in the shop or at my part time job so I’ve been absent from the site. This weekend is one of our biggest shows and it started by setting up Wednesday evening and runs through Saturday evening. Today our hours are 9-9. just trying to have enough inventory has been a real push but we’ve gotten most of it done. I’ve made close to 100 boards in the past three weeks. We have a nice corner booth inside an atrium. Tickets to get in to shop are $10.00 so these are serious shoppers. I made some round boards with a small handle this year cutting them out on the CNC. and we tie an antique or vintage spreading knife to them. We made end grain boards in three sizes, large pictured above, medium and small. Small one on the left medium on the right. Above are cheese boards with the antique or vintage knife and we do a bread board with a small bowl for putting you dipping herbs in. Another look at some of the display. We also had our cornhole boards there and sold five sets yesterday. So I apologize for being absent lately but we have been busy and ready to wrap up this season. We’ll take a small break next week and then finish out the year filling Christmas orders. So what’s on your Patriot Woodworker agenda this weekend. Love to see you projects and hear about what your making in your shop. Have a great weekend and have fun and be safe.

  20. Well I missed last Friday and have just gotten home from working then picking my wife up at her work and eating supper so I’m just now getting my Friday post done. Thanks for your patience with me. Wednesday I was invited to look at and see if I was interested in purchasing some lumber and turning blanks. A gentleman that used to stop by my booth at First Friday passed away two years ago. His wife is just starting to sell off his lumber and blanks. One of his favorite things was to turn rough bowls and then sell them so people could finish them after they had dried and stabilized. Wow there was a room full of bowls just waiting to be chucked and finished turning. I was like a kid turned loose in a candy store. Now I just got to narrow down my choices and see what I can acquire. I was so thankful to be asked to go through his work, lumber, blanks and a few tools. I’ll let you all know soon what I decide to purchase. Here are a couple of samples of what was there. I can hardly wait to get back over there. Today has been a long needed rain soaking here and more to come over night. Like a lot of places, we have been in a drought situation for a couple of months. Thanks for the rain. We are in cutting board mode at the time. Getting ready for one of our large shows and the last of the year. This is a three day show and they moved it up a couple of weeks earlier so we are going wide open making cutting boards and other items for inventory. We finished this batch on Wednesday. Yesterday I got a batch in the first glue up and today my son got them cut into strips. Before he had to pickup kids at school he was able to get a couple also glued in the final End Grain set. Last night I got most of these sanded and ready for engraving our logo on them. A few of them had some spots that we epoxied. Also got eight 6x6” Cheese Boards ready for engraving. And lastly before I came in last night I got 2 large size boards oiled and they will be ready to go in the storage box. Tomorrow will be finishing gluing and cutting and engraving and oiling boards. Whew I’m already tired. Sunday afternoon will be celebrating one of my granddaughters 14th birthday. Hard to believe she is 14. Been busy this school year, she made cheerleader for 8th grade. What’s on your weekend agenda? As always we really love seeing and hearing about all the projects you are working on. Share your weekend agenda with the rest of us.

  23. 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.

  25. 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.
