  1. Here we are the weekend before tax deadline. Thankfully mine are done and been done. Hope you aren't spending the weekend with taxes and get to spend some time in the shop. Wow we had temps here yesterday in the upper 80's. Seems like we are going from frost a few weeks ago to summer and skipping over spring. I desperately needed to spend some time with John Deere today but it looked like rain when I got home and didn't jump on. That may be a job for tomorrow afternoon. This week I got the laser hooked up and working on the CNC machine and can now put my logo on my cutting boards and other items without having to use the branding iron. I was pretty amazed at how well this worked and it's only a 2.5 watt laser. I have a 40 watt one, but it is in a cabinet and is so limited by what size you can put in and it will only allow an inch thickness. So having this one on the CNC gives me much more room and height. It did equally well on the end grain boards as it did on the edge grain. Now I have a stack that will need to be done this weekend so they will be ready to go. We are full go right now on cutting boards, cheese boards and Bread boards. We also finished a nice set of custom Cornhole Boards today. They will go out tomorrow. Plans are to shoot in another GSSF match tomorrow and I'm doing the scoring so middle of the day will be taken. So what's your plans for this mid-April weekend? We always love to see the projects you are working on and pictures of the progress. Share your weekend agenda with us. Whatever you do this weekend, be safe and have fun!

  3. @John Morris I loved your post on the corn hole boards and using your SS. Nice job on the boards. We just finished two more sets the past week with these being made of Poplar. One Alabama set and one Auburn set. We purchase the logos from a licensed dealer for the customer and install them before we spray finish. We have started this week getting ready for our show season to start. Last night I was getting cutting boards ready for my son to glue up today. And he was working on this large piece of Cherry to make a Mantle for a customer. Looks like a busy weekend for us and that’s what I like. So What’s on your Patriot Woodworker agenda this weekend. Love to see all of the projects you built and your process. It inspires others and that’s what we like. Im off this morning early to a men’s Bible Study so I wanted to get this up before I left. What ever you do this weekend, have fun and be safe.

  6. Well today turned into a busy day and I just got a chance to sit down and check in. My Spindel for the CNC arrived yesterday afternoon. I was impressed that I sent off the mail in rebate and got it in under 2 weeks. Now to get it all installed. Tomorrow I’m headed to Montgomery to shoot in a GSSF pistol match. Be on the road a good part of the day and hoping to beat the rain that is moving in for the evening. Sunday I’ll get busy putting the CNC together and working on milling some Poplar for a couple of end tables. That’s about it for my weekend, what’s on your agenda? We love to hear all about your projects and plans for the weekend. Whatever you you do have fun and be safe.
  7. Weather is warming up and looks like this will be the first time this year on John Deere. However I’m looking forward to getting outside and it not be raining. Forecast is for a nice Saturday and possible showers on Sunday evening. Yesterday we pick up these Cherry logs from a tree close to us that was being taken down. Got them dropped off at the sawmill. Last last night my neighbor came over and ask me if I could turn a spindle for them. Not my strong part of woodworking, but it seemed to be close enough. I got my new CNC setup and together this week. They had to order my water cooled spindle so just waiting on it to get shipped in. Looking forward to getting this running. The rest of the weekend will be trying to finish up straightening the shop after all the rearranging. What’s on your agenda this weekend? We love to see and hear about your weekend projects. Whatever you do, have fun and be safe!

I am working on this issue within my spare time, unfortunately now that the new work week has begun we are more than likely going to have to use this default theme until the weekend comes along again and I can sit down and dig in.

  9. This week has mostly been a week of cleaning are reorganizing the shop. We have moved most everything that was in the back of the shop to the front, and what was in the front to the back. Trying to improve our work flow through the shop. Wow what a mess I have made. Saturday we are going to Nashville, my CNC came in Monday but haven't had time to make the run up there. The new CNC is part of the reason for the shop rearrangement and should work a lot better. I am also running some new ductwork for my DC. Thanks for all of your wonderful birthday wishes. I have reached the magic 65 number and still going strongly. So what's on your agenda for this St. Patrick's day weekend? Hope the weather is better and warming up so you can get in the shop. Post your pictures and share with us your weekend projects. Whatever you are doing this weekend, have fun and be safe!

This past Saturday my wife loaded me up into our car and we drove to a surprise location, the Sam Maloof residence and work shop tour. We had our anniversary on March 2nd, 28 wonderful years of marriage, I gave her my gift, and her gift had to wait as it was raining really hard and part of the tour was outside. So she and the kids kept a secret for another whole week and we went this past Saturday. I had no idea where we were going till we virtually pulled up on the compound. What a cool anniversary gift! We could not take pictures inside the residence, there was much artwork and frankly to have a tour with a bunch of cameras pointing all over the place would have taken away from the experience, so I thank the foundation for that rule. But we could take pictures in other areas of the compound, and here are a just a few in my gallery of the tour. I'll have more images once I get my wife's camera downloaded too.

  11. Well I have been absent for a few weeks from the site. We were contacted by a design company to built a couple of prototypes for them to take to market. So we got busy working on them and finished last Friday morning and they are at market this week. We have no idea where this will go but we were ask to prepare a bid for 1000 of them. So that what’s been going on with us. Hopefully we will know something in about a week. So now back to other work. We almost finished a large custom green egg, grill, outdoor unit for a customer. Most of it is cedar, the top will be Epay Wood, something the customer had. Also going to use it on some of the trim. Saturday I’m heading to Nashville to Woodcraft to pickup a new and larger CNC machine. No idea where I’m going to put it, the shop is full! Maybe another addition. Glad to be back posting today and look forward to seeing and hearing about your weekend agenda. Sorry but but right now I can’t tell you anything more about the prototypes. Hope you have a great weekend and whatever you do have fun and be safe!

It’s getting a clear finish and I’m loving the grain of the Red Elm. We are to get two months of rain in the next few days so I’m hoping we can get it delivered before the rain starts.

Community News Please see our financial debriefing for our Christmas Project 2018 Our Wiki Recently while poking around the software that I use for our wiki, I found an interesting feature that I implemented for our "American Woods" Project. Before, the pages for each of our trees where scattered about and un-linked to one another. So the reader would have to back out of each page and find another page in the American Woods category. Now we have a structured page with a table of contents for each page in this category thus far. We almost have all the conifers entered into this project, and soon I'll be moving onto the hardwoods. While perusing this subject, you can now click on the little forward arrow from any page within the "American Woods" project and be taken to the next page. This may seem like a big "duh" to most folks, but within this open source freeware, things like this are hard to come by and often times difficult to configure. See image below, click on the little forward arrow at this page: https://thepatriotwoodwiki.org/The-American-Woods-Project Glossary of Woodworking Joints This page is getting a fun little addition as well, if you go to https://thepatriotwoodwiki.org/Glossary-of-Woodworking-Joints You'll see some of the joints have a little dotted underline at the word. For example see "Bridle". The first joint in the Glossary, now hover your cursor over "Bridle". You should see a graphic appear that shows a "Bridle" joint. Growth Range Maps Several of our tree pages in the "American Woods" category are getting "Growth Range Maps". Eventually all the tree pages will have Growth Range Maps, you'll see a map at the right side of the page, below the info box. See just a few of the following pages that now have this handy addition, that lets you know where these trees are in our nation.

  22. We took a week or so off after Christmas to relax and try to reorganize to get ready to begin another year. Last week we got this slab top desk desk back to the top of the list. It got put on hold waiting on the customer to do a house remodel and now they are ready. It was going to have a live edge on both sides but that has now changed and we had to square up one side. We we got the legs built and just sat them on the top. They are not in place in the picture. Added a support stretcher under the top and secure the legs with some brackets underneath. It is ready this weekend to move into the finishing room to get an epoxy satin finish on the top and a spray satin finish on the bottom. Whats on your agenda this weekend? I love to see all that you are working on so share your projects with us and thanks for doing so. Whatever you do this weekend, have fun and be safe!

Featured Gallery @Warped & Twisted gallery of his Green House build is very interesting. See how Rich built the foundation for this project, and the re-purposed storm doors he and his wife used for the walls of the Green House. Those Alaskans, sure are resourceful! Community News Our raffle for the Bassett Family was a success, we want to thank everybody involved and those who contributed funding and treasure to this project. We have a few happy winners of some great prizes and many who walked away with the satisfaction that they contributed to this family and their Christmas Season. As the final proceeds are being sent to the family today, and as we close the books on yet another project for a wounded warrior family, within this week we'll have a publicly displayed disclosure of how the proceeds were used for this project along with some great images of the family, and some images of some beautiful crafts that were sent to us by one of our woodworkers and his wife here, for the Bassett Family. So stay tuned for the final wrap!

And to our new members, welcome to your new community folks! Our Wiki One of my latest projects for our wiki is bringing information into our wiki from the out of print book written by Shelley E. Schoonover (U.S. Forester) "American Woods", public domain. I've added a few more pages with some of our favorite softwoods or conifers published in our wiki. Balsam Fir - One of the ten firs native to the United States, is a medium-sized and short-lived tree but an important one, nonetheless, in both the United States and Canada. It is a beautiful, symmetrical, heavily-foliaged tree, doubtless the best shaped evergreen, comparable to the Colorado Blue Spruce. Read more... Bald Cypress - The Baldcypress is a well balanced and attractive, long lived tree which may grow to large size. It is one of the deciduous conifers. It grows on wet stream banks and low land as well as in swamps and attains its largest size in the south. Read more... California Incense Cedar - A well formed tree 75 to 125 feet tall and 18 to 40 inches in diameter. This is the only species of this genus growing in the United States. Read more... Northern White Cedar - A tree of medium size and of slow growth.The tree inhabits swamps and generally grows in such dense stands that its growth is greatly retarded. Read more... Western Red Cedar - A large, long-lived, slow-growing tree of the Pacific northwest. It attains heights of over 200 feet with a trunk diameter up to 16 feet. It has a wide buttressed or “swell butted” base, a long, clear trunk and a narrow, dense, conical crown. Read more... Glossary Updates Also: Terms and definitions were updated in the following wiki pages.

  24. This seems like a very fast year as we come to the last weekend. It has been a busy year for us and we were blessed with lots of projects. We usually take a couple of weeks after Christmas to regroup and reorganize somewhat before starting back. So no work in our shop this week or this weekend. I plan on a little relaxing and doing a little shooting at this range this weekend. I have some reloading to do. Part of of the weekend I’ll be in front of the TV watching the College Football Playoffs. Time now to take some time and reflect back on the year and plan for the coming year. What’s on your agenda this weekend? I love to hear what you are doing and see the projects your are working on. Have a a safe and Happy New Year.

Please tell us what's happening in your shops, your life, and any events going on with you. Thank you for being here folks!  Community News I want to thank those who have contributed thus far to our Annual Adopt a Wounded Warrior Family for Christmas Project. Funding is still rolling in thanks to the cheer leader efforts of a few of our Patriot Woodworkers who are encouraging folks to keep contributing! Some of our folks are even matching funds as they come in! On behalf of the Bassett family, I want to thank you all. I have had over 40 email communications with Michelle Bassett, as we had to strategically figure out what her boys wanted for Christmas and we discussed a few other project ideas, and here are just a few quotes contained in those emails. Though we have met our goal, there is still time to enter if you wish, the draw happens on New Years. Any funds collected over our goal, will be sent to the family in the form of a check. All funds for this project are used for this family. You all should feel really proud of what you accomplished in such a short amount of time! I'd like to give ya'll a big "Tip of the Hat" for a fine job done! Thank you all!
