  1. Tables have been the order of business this week. We were sent a picture to build a base for a table. They already had a top they wanted to use so we got it going. Yesterday we got all the little accent pieces put on and now it is in the finishing room. it is is going to be painted and they are dropping the paint by so we can start today. Since it was being painted we used up some small pieces of wood laying around to do all the accents. While that one was being put together we started on a large Maple table top and 2” tubing base. The top was to be 48”x60”x2”. Had to do it in a couple of glue ups to keep flat and ensure good joints. After we made the last glue up to be just over 48” wide we sent a picture to the customer and they quickly decided it was too big for the room so we will be cutting it down. The Base is 2” square tubing so the shop turned to welding. Both my sons are certified welders so I left it up to them. The base is now together and the end pieces for a bench that will go with the table. A little more grinding and sanding and a primer will get sprayed this weekend and then it will be sprayed Black. The frame and bench ends will get levers drilled and inserted to protect floors. We are hopful of finishing all this over the weekend but you just never know. Saturday I’m shooting in a GSSF competition. So that’s our agenda, what’s on your agenda this weekend? share your projected and pictures as we all here at TPW love to see everything you are working on. For those in the path of Florence, we hope and pray you are safe. Whatever your plans this weekend, have fun and be safe.

  5. Labor Day weekend and the beginning of College Football and lots to do. Still in the dog days of summer here, but you can tell that cooler temps are on the way and fall won't be too far off. I'm already thinking about readying the shop for winter and it's been upper 90's all week. I've been working all this week at the range so no shop time foe me, but the boys have been busy with several projects. Corn hole boards and Oak Table tops in glue up. Corn hole boards are Cherry and Maple. All of the boards we have been making are hardwoods, no plywood or MDF in these. We have been tuning them out as fast as the two of them can glue up tops and put them together. Frames cut out for the next batch. I am spraying the final finish on the Walnut/Cedar chest this morning. Hope to have it out of the finishing room and delivered this evening or tomorrow. Had a run around the "G" and had to sand it down so I can fix that. The finishing room as been so full we have been moving pieces in and out to try to finish as quickly as possible. Not sure what we would have done without this finishing room. Like everything, now I wish i had made it twice the size! So this weekend will be busy in the shop part of the time, no volleyball this weekend. I am shooting in USPSA this weekend so I have to get some reloads done and ready at some point. So what's on your long Labor Day holiday weekend agenda? As always, we here at TPW love to see your projects, shops and hear about your weekend plans. So post those picture and share with us what you have planned. Whatever you do this weekend, have fun and be safe!

  7. This has been a busy week starting with last Saturday. I got called in to work in the range for Sig Sauer day. It was awesome as these guys are top of the line trainers. I had the pleasure of meeting and working alongside Panda, one of the Sig academy top trainers. You could pay $5.00 and shoot all the guns on the table and they furnished the ammo. Yesterday I finally got the screen door I made to the customer and installed. Since everything was out of square on the door frame I had to trim the door to fit. All is is good and everything worked. We also delivered a Green Egg table yesterday. So today we are back on the Oak tables to finish them. I know many of you will be traveling to the meet this weekend and hope to see lots of pictures and hear many stories. Have a great time, wish I was with you. So so how about the rest of you? What’s on you agenda this weekend. We we love to see and hear about your projects. Whatever yiu you do have fun and be safe.
  8. It has been a busy week in our shop as we were trying to meet a deadline and get some projects out. We were given a short time but we managed to deliver the important pieces and get it setup. My son, Josh has done most of the work with me being the "in the way management", but we all jumped in and helped. It is really nice to be able to move pieces into the finishing room while sanding or milling is going on in the shop. I had this nice Oak slab we used for the top of the Welcome Center and we used the self leveling epoxy to finish it. That way it covered and gave a nice thick smooth finish and really highlighted the grain in the White Oak. Yep, we left the cracks and filled them in with epoxy. Also did this sound console for the youth area where this was all going. Didn't really get a picture of it but there is one wall in this area they have covered with the corrugated tin. And we got the Oak table stained, assembled and delivered. This weekend we have out of town company so not a lot of shop time. Also have SIG day at the range so I'll be there part of Saturday. I'm already thinking Sunday afternoon will be recliner time! Today we are assembling more of the tables and working on a few small things in the shop. So what's on your weekend agenda? As always, we love to hear about all the projects from our TPW members. Post those pictures and share those projects. Whatever you do this weekend, have fun and be safe!

  11. It seems to me like the weeks are just flying by. I sometimes wonder where the time is going. I turn around and the weekend is here again, and that's a good thing. This weekend we are readying for a show in a small town just east of us. Setting up this afternoon and going till Saturday evening. Looks like it will be hot and humid, but then what else would it be in August in Alabama. It seems the more projects we send out the door, the more that are coming in. My two sons are working hard during the week while I am at the shooting range working and then Thursday and Friday and the weekend we all hit it hard. My shop was not really built to have three people working at the same time on different projects, but we seem to be finding a way to get them done. Emptying the dust collectors keeps one person busy! So we have finished up a plain set of maple corn hole boards that will be painted white and later have the a decal of the shooting range on them to use at the range on First Saturday which is Burgers and Bullets. The boys did a nice set of Maple boards with Alabama decals for another customer. We build the boards and them put the customers decal on of their favorite team before we spray a finish. @Ron Dudelston we even had a request for a set and put a Notre Dame decal on it. Hey it they provide the decal and the money, I will put them on for them. We are also in the middle of a pretty good size job building ten 42" square Oak tables for a local church. Yesterday we got this one mostly together for our prototype so we would have all the measurements and figure out and assembly and clamping issues. Lots of rounding over to do and fitting but we are about ready to start running all the pieces. We are having fun and busy in the shop! What's on your weekend agenda? We love to see your projects and hear all about them. Share your projects and pictures of your weekend agenda. Whatever you do this weekend, have fun and be safe!

  13. We have finally made it to the dog days of summer although it seems around here they started the first of June. We have been in the 90's more days than not around here. I am so thankful that I put a new AC unit int he shop this year, that baby had been working hard. Didn't get too much done in the shop last weekend with the three granddaughters here from Saturday till Monday morning. They are loads of fun, but will wear you out in 5 minutes. But this week we are working on two projects. Yep still making corn hole games and still have some on order. My youngest son, Andrew was in the shop yesterday sanding on the boards getting them ready for the finishing room. As you can see the shop is a mess but lots of work going on in there. Three of the boards are in the finishing room, two of them getting sprayed and the other waiting on him to finish the second of the pair. I love being able to move them into the finishing room and spray while they keep cutting and sanding. Just got the second coat of Sanding Seal on these two and ready to spray the finish coats on. My other son Josh, has been cutting and gluing oak boards to make some 42" square tables for a job. He has one glued that needs to be squared up and the others in sections about ready to glue together and make the top. Then we will start on the bases which will be trestle bases. While I was waiting on finish to dry I was playing with the CNC and trying out a few setting to see how they would turn out. Sorry about this picture, the glare washed out one side. I'll try to get a better picture to share. We have First Friday's show this weekend and Saturday I'll be at the range doing Burgers and Bullets as I'm the grill master. So that is what's on the agenda in our shop, what's on your weekend agenda? We here at TPW love to see all of the great projects you are working on. Above all, have a great weekend and whatever you do, have fun and be safe!
  14. Not a busy shop weekend here, but will be busy with 3 of the granddaughters, 12,2 and 1 1/2. Should be a busy fun time. Yesterday i I spent some time getting a model loaded into the computer so I can start to cut and make some grips for my 1911’s with the CNC instead of shaping by hand. Josh and Andrew managed to get the order of corn hole games out and now have orders for four more sets. Wow, those have turned into a busy time. I got dye and the first coats of finish on some shelves that go to the range I never finishes a while back. I got one side done and then sidetracked. By the way I love my finishing room. so that’s about it around my shop. What’s on you agenda this weekend.
  15. It seems here that corn hole games have become the hot item. We have been quite busy gluing up tops for the games. Today we were busy in the shop cutting and getting five tops glued and one more ready but ran out of clamps. You know you can never have too many clamps. We made a set for an Auburn fan. They furnished the stick-on decal and we applied it and then sprayed on the clear finish. I'm an Alabama fan, but I won't turn down an order from an Auburn fan. I posted a picture of the Singer Sewing Table last week, but it got sprayed over the weekend with General Finishes Enduro Var and delivered to the customer. I'm also trying to finish up a Cedar Chest with Walnut accents. Got the skirt pieces all cut and mitered just need to get them on now. Lots to do this weekend. And today I had a meeting with a wonderful 92 year old lady that wanted a set of finials for her new gate and post. She had this very nice picture showing the gate and finials. She has already had the gate built and need the finials turned. So I went by and met with her and will be getting on turning the finials in the next couple of weeks to fit the post. My two sons and I have been quite busy in the shop lately and it has been loads of fun. So what's on your agenda this July weekend? Love to hear about and see all of your projects. Share with us whats on your agenda this weekend.
  16. It seems like the dog days of summer got here early this year. Record setting heat has meant staying in the cool and I'm thankful for the AC in the shop. This week has been a busy one and will continue into the weekend. Corn hole games have been the run here lately. I guess everyone is enjoying the outside time and playing games. This set got finished and is made from Walnut, Cherry and Maple wood, no plywood in our game boards. Our customer wanted this out of several woods which seems at times to have become our signature. Not at my house with that Auburn flag in the background. So today we got pieces cut out and milled for two more sets that have been ordered. Got this jointed, planed and cut to size and glued into panels today. This weekend we will finish these. Also worked on a Quarter Sawn White Oak slab to make a table top for and old Singer Sewing machine bottom. This Slab was just over 20" wide and after running it through the dual drum sander it leveled out at 1 5/8" thick. Tomorrow we will get it sanded and moved into the finishing room for a stain and clear finish. Should be ready for delivery the first of the week. Saturday I will be at the Shooting Range part of the day as we are having SilencerCo in for a Range day. They are bringing suppressors and machine guns to shoot and demonstrate their line of suppressors. So thats my weekend, what's on your agenda this weekend? As always, we here at TPW love to hear about your project and see what you are working on. Share your weekend agenda with us.

Please tell us what's happening in your shops, your life, and any events going on with you. Thank you for being here folks! As for me, I have a whole week off! Kids are on Spring Break and we have plans to see some sights. We'll be heading down to San Diego for a couple day trips, it's only 2 hrs away so we don't need to stay the night down there, and we'll visit some of our favorite places, The Cabrillo National Monument, Balboa Park, possibly the San Diego Zoo, and the beach of course, and we'll visit my old stomping grounds for some great food, but it'll be fun. I'll try to get some shop time in between it all, our kids are growing up so fast, I feel like I need to squeeze what remaining time I have left with them into a few short years anytime I have a day off. Our oldest is back to college, her Spring Break ended last week, so we'll just have our two youngest with us for this week off. Have a wonderful week ahead all! Who is behind The Patriot Woodworker? Of course our Forum Hosts and our Admins are! They run the joint around here, and without them we'd be in a world of hurt. Occasionally though I like to show off my family (the unseen heroes), who has supported my own efforts here on The Patriot Woodworker, with a ton of patience, and understanding for ol Dad. We take a few pictures once a year at this old picnic bench every Easter Morning after services. We have 17 years worth of images at this exact location in our backyard since we moved into our home, and it has become a family Easter Tradition. My wife and I have been married for 27 years, and we have lived in this home for 17 of those wonderful and at times challenging years. My very patient family seen below, my eyes look closed, they aren't though, I can actually see through them squinty eyes. I would like to officially and publicly thank my family for allowing Dad to be here, having fun with ya'll.

  20. Another busy week in my shop. We finished a Cedar table for a Primo smoker/grill that was picked up this morning. Yesterday we started working on four doors for two tall cabinets. These will be going out to Texas close to Waco. I was given four old shutters and they want me to build a frame around them and make two doors per cabinet. We are building the frame from Poplar. I think her plans are to paint the outside of the doors. We will make a panel to fit the bottom of the door. I was looking through my lunch ear and decided to use some Pecan for the panels. We took some thick pieces I had and resawed then to get book match pieces. They will then be set in a grove so the panels float. I think when we finish the panels they will look close to the shutters. And now I’m just waiting on Ron and Dorothy Dudleston to get here for the weekend. Whats on your agenda this weekend. Love to see all of your projects and here about them for the weekend. Whatever you do, have fun and be safe.
  21. The HUGE Maple Island top is finally in the finishing room. we will get the finish on today and hopefully get it delivered this weekend or first of the week. We we are making a smaller version of the top for a window seat top that will go in the kitchen also We got it glued into sections this morning. My son is working on a Cedar Green egg table. I’m about to glue up the screen door from earlier this week. The work bench has been full and just now got it clear enough to work. So Whats on your Patriot Woodworker agenda this weekend? Love to see all the projects and hear about what you are working on. Whatever you do, have fun and be safe.
  22. Today will start off with gluing up the six panels we have into three panels for this huge Maple Island top. yesterday we got them all run through the dual drum sander. Got the glue off and took them down close to finish thickness. Today we will work on jointing edges so we can do the glue up of the sections. While we are wait for glue to dry we will be taking a load of logs to the saw mill. I also have a load of lumber to pick up at the mill and bring home and sticker and stack. Should be a busy weekend. What’s on your agenda. We love to see your projects and pictures. Whatever you you do have fun and be safe.
  23. Today I’m finishing up the floating shelves. All the holes are drilled for the brackets to slide into the shelf. I left a couple of them up so you could see how they go in. The brackets are predrilled for the stud location so they will be mounted on the wall and slide the shelf in and the there is a screw the goes into the bottom and lines up with a hole in the rods the keep the shelf in place. Now it is finish sanding and putting a clear finish on. So what’s on your weekend agenda? Share your projects and pictures of your weekend plans. Whatever you do, have fun and be safe.
  24. Well it has been a while since I have posted. Life gets in the way sometimes. This is past week I have been in my shop quite a bit and with the help of my son, Josh. We have even set him up a small shop at his house in part of his garage. I started working on this Island top last year and things just happened and we got behind. But it was delivered yesterday. it is finished with a hand rubbed oil finish. and this his is the island it is going on. Not attached yet but should be by the end of today. We also finished a poplar toybox yesterday and I thought I took a picture but don’t see it on my phone. Oh well. One other thing I have added to the shop but not had time to even hook up yet is a CNC machine. Can’t wait to get this up and running. So how about you all, what’s on you agenda this weekend? Love to here about and see all of your projects. Whatever you do, have a fun and safe weekend.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
