  1. One of our members asked me recently why he hadn't seen any pictures of my work. I told him it's because I've never taken pictures until recently. Just never thought anyone would want to see 'em! But I did have a couple of items still kicking around. A friend asked for some bird houses about three years ago, and these two were "leftovers" in more ways than one... leftover 1x12 roof boards, plus I made more than she had a use for. The coffee table is just a TAD older, by about 50 years! The design was a high school shop project, and since I had few tools and no workshop, I persuaded my shop teacher to let me make a second one after classes. This one was given to my sister, who returned it when they downsized after retirement. The other one, slightly longer, is still in daily use in a brother-in-law's home. Just remembered I had one more project still in my possession. Tried decoy carving about 35 years ago. Mostly miniatures for gifts, and this was the only full-size one I carved. Still have two rough-outs in the shop... maybe one of these days? John
  2. Try not to laugh too hard but this is my first project on a lathe in 42 years. I have used a lathe since I made a file handle in wood shop class in high school. I had visions of inside out ornaments and fancy bowls but I came up with this. I suppose we all must start somewhere but I had a blast watching the wood chips fly. Trust me I will be asking a lot of questions as I try to improve my skills.
  3. Some of you have seen the bird houses I built. Every year we get birds, but every year wasps make nests in the houses. Even if the birds have a nest, they run them off or kill them. I've experimented and have finally found a solution. I bought some thin Teflon sheets and put them on the underside of the roof, figuring that if their nest can't stick to the roof, they won't build. I have 5 bird houses and 4 had birds, no wasps. One I forgot to put it in had a BIG wasp nest. (Teflon spray did not work) The other big problem is hail, we've had it as big as baseballs and it can destroy a house with a direct hit.
  4. RECENTLY BIRD HOUSE WAS MENTIONED, GOT ME TO THINKING. SEVERAL YEARS AGO, IN MY QUEST TO FIND PLACES & NAIL UP A BLUE BIRD NEST BOX, A COUPLE ASK ME IF I WOOD GIVE'M A NEST BOX TO SEND TO THEIR SON WHO WAS IN THE MILITARY. SAID HE'D ASK'M TO SEND'M anything THAT WOOD REMIND'M OF BACK HOME. I DID. FEW MONTHS LATER I ASK THE HUSBAND IF THE BIRD HOUSE MADE THE TRIP TO TEXAS? HE ANSWERED: WE SENT IT TO'M (FORGET PLACE) IN TEXAS. SHORT WHILE LATER HE TRANSFERRED TO VIRGINIA, BIRD HOUSE WENT RIGHT ALONG WITH'M. SHORT WHILE LATER TRANSFERRED TO DC, BIRD HOUSE WENT THERE TOO. HAVE NOT SEEN THIS MAN IN A FEW YEARS, WOOD LOV TO HEAR WHERE'N'ALL DID THAT BLUE BIRD NEST BOX TRAVEL TO, THAT WAS BUILT IN MY SHOP N ALMA, GA. & DID ANY BIRDS EVER SET FOOT IN IT? THANKS FOR SHARING A MEMORY BUCK NALL Cya
  5. I've posted here saying that wasps had invaded my birdhouses and killed small birds. I also said that I had sprayed the inside with dry teflon, thinking the wasp nest would not stick. Today I removed one of my bird houses and found two nests, one made by a bird and one made by the wasps that chased the bird away. This time I installed some very thin Teflon sheeting to the upper parts of the house. I also had to restore much of the declarations, the sun had eaten them again. I have several more to go.
  6. I made this birdhouse out of an empty 48oz Folgers Coffee Can. Mike
  7. Just joined this afternoon and have been reading the Turning Forum. I do mostly woodturning although I also love to refinish antique furniture. Here is a mini birdhouse I turn and they sell great for Christmas ornaments. Last year I sold over 200 which I start turning in January for the next Christmas. Anyway they are 3 piece and can turn from 3 to 5 per hour. Bernie
  8. This video impressed me so much. I am self taught and I learned so much. I can not do what he does because I have limitations. I was blown away with his talents
  9. First batch of ornaments for the year. Mostly maple, cherry, and walnut, there are a couple sycamore globes. There is one sea urchin ornament, that one has ebony finials. We spent a few days on Jacksonville beach with my wife's brother and his wife. Two of our best friends in the world. Picked some sea urchins and this ornament will go to them as a remembrance. Most of these are dyed "inside out". A couple local gift shops sell a few of these and those are the most popular. To me, it's hard beat just plain wood grain. Thanks for looking! Steve
  10. It will be a couple weeks before I can turn anything new but Christmas is coming!! Time to start turning ornaments! Here's a few from last year. . .

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.
