  1. Yes, I realize it is Thursday. But in my defense- I had this entire post written last evening and just before it was to be submitted- it disappeared. Not sure what combinations of keys I pressed but I was staring at a blank post entering screen. Please check the "Everything Else" topic about Ruth Niles! Our Patriot Turners- @Gerald showed us the progress he was making on a beautiful piece of cherry burl- a gift from his son. Geral certainly did this piece of wood proud! @AndrewBis not one to sit around and waste time. He posted severa
  2. Well either way, I'm starting a NEW project on a bowl.... This one will be my mothers birthday gift although it will be late I think she'll be happy with it when its finished up. I've never tried working with Birtch wood before so I wanted to try it. Fortunately home depot has plenty in stock. I bought a 12 foot section of board at 5 dollars a foot. That crap AINT cheap. I cut the board down to size. I took one of the bowls I had previously done. After the glue finished up drying. I went down drew out the lines. I'm still going to finish letting the glue cure up on the the lathe. Its
  3. Since we bought this house new in 2017, my wife has wanted this built-in. I just couldn't find the time, but thanks to COVID, I have lots of time now. The whole thing is 8' tall and just shy of 12' long. Each book case is 44.5" wide and 12" deep and the faux fireplace is 52" by 18" deep. I used 3/4" Birch plywood for the carcasses, select Pine for the face frame, trim, rails, and stiles, Pine for the shelves, and 2"x 8" and 2"x 6" dimensional lumber for the mantle. Oh, and 1/4" Birch Ply for the back and door panels. Came out pretty good, but many mistakes made.
  4. A long video, 52 minutes, but if you start watching, you may not be able stop, so grab a cup of coffee or your favorite beverage, and enjoy. The final outcome is a beautiful refined piece of work.
  5. The only problem with me is I can see a few more days grinding on the next thing I start after I said its finished... I changed the way I attached the things to the board! More easier than the epoxy thingy. All my carving stuff is for head on looking. I'll get around to the sides and back if there are enough years left. Baltic Birch for the backer board. I used 100% tung oil to bring out the color and maybe a little extra enhancement also. This wood is exotic as I ever go and it is actually local. The bottom picture is with a flash. The finish is lacq
  6. I have finished the box made from a damaged birch tree on my sons' property. He loved his birches. The box is a gift to my daughter-in-law. finished with 2 coats of brushed on varnish and 1 wipe on coat. The bark was finished using water based urethane.
  7. Well don't know what happens to my post earlier this morning seems to have disappeared. No telling what I did wrong. Finally finished this project after 3 out of town trips and some other activities that kept me away. It a lot work to make this in 3 sections for my small shop. The side and back panel is Birch Plywood from the home center. I was not too impress with it but that what my wanted. The face frame and doors frame is Red Oak lumber with 1/4 inch Red Oak Plywood panel. The shelves is what the home centers called Select Pine or Clear and Better Pine. It the closes that I could
  8. As some of you know, my sister has made it her life's work to make sure I get to heaven- fat chance! This time, she has me making a tithe box and shelf for her minister's church. I worked with him thru emails and Sketchup drawings to get the approval on the design/materials/hardware. The box is 1/2" thick birch and walnut stock with hand cut dovetails. Top and bottom are mounted in dados. The top is flush with the sides and the bottom is slightly recessed. The shelf is 3/4" birch plywood with shop made walnut edging. The hardware is a half m

  10. From the album: Awards for Veterans

    The final product, they look very cool, I loved how they turned out. Really the woodworking was the back drop, the really cool thing is are the emblems and the engravings, without those items, it's just a piece of wood.

    Just a stack of plaques, sanded to 160, I sanded them all to 600 before final finish.

    The plaques are cut out and the edges beveled.
  13. Well we left off with our veterans appreciation plaques sanded to 150 in the last blog, and here we are with some images that will bring us to the completion of the project. After I sanded all the awards to 150 I continued on through the grits up to 600, I was happy with the burnished sheen the plaques were developing. And I decided enough was enough, time for some finish! I would typically mix my own wipe on oil, but I had a can of Watco Danish Oil sitting around and decided to use it, and not only did I have a nice can of handy wipe on oil at the ready, and also had a wonderful helper who wa
  14. Good Monday Morning Patriot Woodworker's! I must admit I woke up rough this morning, not so ready to attack the week with the abundance of enthusiasm I typically have. Just one of those day's! I didn't even feel like putting one foot off my bed onto the floor, but, the world moves on so shall we! This weekend I was able to jump into the shop and make some progress on some plaques I am making for our daughters high school veterans support club. I got them cut, edges beveled, and sanded to 150. I'll spend a few hours on them this week after work getting them sanded to 600 in pr
  15. My name is John Morris, and I am the founder of The Patriot Woodworker. Our community was founded on the principles of sharing, mentoring, and learning from fellow woodworkers, and above all, we have one thing in common, we all support the men and women who serve our nation. And we pretty much take on any task or challenge for our veterans that is asked of us, with the help of our sponsors. Recently I was asked by my own daughters (Patriot Tigers) if The Patriot Woodworker's could support their high school club efforts to host a dinner for the faculty of their school disctrict, of who

  21. My first go at hand cutting DTs. The drawer material is 3/4 pine from the BORG (2 drawers 24" sq outside on Blummotion heavy duty slides) The project is a pedestal for a front loading washer dryer It's made from  mortised 2-by material. Shelled in with half inch birch. Will be filled and  painted to match the appliances. nothing fancy Rise height 24" or thereabouts  (emphasis on the thereabouts) The wheels in the rear  are swivel type the ones  in the front are Great Lakes Casters that pick the wheel up off the floor when I rotate a little star-wheel in the cast
  22. Couple days ago my neighbor came over and wanted me to make him a box to put hid $3000 revolver in. He said he wants it made of 1/4 inch birch plywood with inside dimensions of 12 inches long , 7 inches wide , and 2 1/2 inches deep. He also wants it to look really nice. My issue is I not sure if that's even possible with plywood. I bought some 1/2 inch birch plywood ( only 2 ft by 4 ft piece for $17) to think about it because 1/4 inch won't hold. Does anyone have any ideas on assembling to make nice? I personally think I need to find some solid birch somewhere. Any help on this project would b
