  1. The Drawing Dear all, our contributors/donors names have been extracted from our data base and the personal checks we received were included as well, the single and multiple name entries were hand entered into a text (.txt) file by the amount contributed, the text file was then copy and pasted into an online Random Name Picker. As the names were drawn, they were assigned to each item provided by our sponsors in the same order as listed at the Warrior Family Project Page. I wish all who contributed could walk away with something, but I know that was not your priority, the famil
  2. I've been working on a present for my son and his family. We've all seen the clothes trees we put in the corner of our bedroom, on which we can hang a robe, belt, etc. This is modeled after that concept, except that my stocking tree will look like what I just described, but had it's growth stunted. It will be only about 4 feet tall, give or take a couple of inches. It is being made in three sections. A base, a bottom section that will be joined to the base with a tenon, and a top section, joined also to the bottom section with a tenon. The top of the top section will have a finial. At le
  3. The gift shop that displays a few of my turnings sold fifteen ornaments for me this year and several honey dipper lids. I don't want my hobby to be a job but a little extra cash lets me spend for the shop without feeling guilty about it. More about that in a minute. I'm working through a batch of honey dipper lids for the spring season now. There will be 25 this time. All of the lids are completed and I have 23 dipper stems done so I only really need to do a couple more tomorrow. However, I have nine more blanks prepped so I'll turn them all and put some in the kitty for next time
  4. Introduction Every year The Patriot Woodworker's adopt a Wounded Warrior or Gold Star family for Christmas. We do this through a great veterans support organization named Operation Ward 57. The Patriot Woodworker's submit an application to Ward 57 to be accepted to receive our family for Christmas, and each year we are chosen to participate. And each year, our sponsors donate wonderful items for us to giveaway for this cause. We use 100 percent of your contributions to purchase gifts for the kids, and a Christmas dinner for the family and to fund related project expenses such as shipping
  5. Made a couple of ornaments today for a giveaway at church.
  6. I thought I would move this one over here. So I came home from a trip to find one of my SS's missing. It was the Power Pro that I have used for years as my lathe. It was a misguided attempt by my wife and son to get me a new lathe for Xmas and give my son a second SS. He is a pretty serious woodworker in his own right and has wanted a Power Pro for a long time. He did pay for half the new lathe for which he could have easily purchased a PP upgrade. A new lathe in my shop would require that I get rid of one SS no matter what due to spatial restrictions and the sentiment was very nice. I would h
  7. (As you may know) I am not a turner, but a friend of mine turned these and his wife will paint. He found a set of 3 at a craft store for $110 and decided "I could do that"
  8. Thought I was done making ornaments for the year but I had some special requests for a few more. So, 16 in total this batch. Had never put a hat on a birdhouse ornament before but I kind of like the look of them.

  10. @Gerald reminded me of an additional sale at Woodcraft- Click on the image for the link to Woodcraft sale pages
  11. Another Christmas is here As you all know, every year we adopt a wounded warrior or gold star family for Christmas and we all come together and provide Christmas presents and food for that family, I am proud to announce that today we have been invited back to Operation Ward 57 Adopt a Family For Christmas event for 2020. I am very proud that they keep having us back, and I am very proud of the big way you all come through for these families in the past. I just completed the application and I submitted it just seconds ago, later this month we'll know who our family is, and how many ki
  12. Can you believe it? Tomorrow is the first day of October! One of own, @Charles Nicholls, could use some prayers and good thoughts. Charles is in the hospital and hopefully recovering but if you could take a moment and send some positive energy his way, I'm sure it will be appreciated. A little more information is here- EDIT EDIT EDIT--- Just received word that Charles has been moved from the hospital to a rehab facility. Things are looking up! Our Patriot Turners- Last week @Masonsailor showed us his beginning Christmas present project. He has added even mor
  13. Another week in the books. We've had a beautiful stretch of nice weather here in South Central PA. Unfortunately it has been so dry that the forest service is predicting very muted colors on the trees as the the leaves change. Our Patriot Turners- @Masonsailor reminded us that Christmas isn't that far away! He has started in on his gifts already He received lots of positive comments on this ice cream scoop- Of course, @Ron Altier is always prepared for Christmas! He gave us a look at a couple of new ornaments he turned. As al
  14. Final Debrief Once again I'd like to thank all those who participated and all those who sent positive thoughts and prayers to this wonderful project we held, and we will hold once again this year in 10 short months. Many of you did not win any prizes, but please keep in mind, the grand prize was helping the Family to have a wonderful memorable Christmas. So we all won in that regard! Thank you to all who participated! To view our project please visit this link Operation Ward 57 Adopt a Wounded Warrior Family for the Holidays Project - 2019 You can see the total contr
  15. This is the one that is off center and has some really bad places in it. I think my wife made, it At least she wouldn't let me toss it. The main body is pine and it did everything you wouldn't want to happen. I used pine because I was experimenting and did't want to waste good wood. The inside is painted black to cover all the tare outs inside. It also broke in two pieces. I guess as long as she likes it.......its ok.
  16. 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

  19. Ok Patriot Woodworker's,how'd yall do! What did Santa bring you and your shop! We had a pretty mellow Christmas this year, mama and me promised each other we'd not exchange gifts, but we did manage a couple nice ones for our kids. An Ipod 5h Gen for our youngest girl along with some books she wanted. Then we got a set of books that our oldest girl wanted, she loves the Bill O'reilly series of killing books, Killing Lincoln, Killing Patton etc. So we set her up with those and she wanted some books by William Buckley and a hand full of other books. So now she can go to school armed to the t
  20. You gotta love the guys at Veteran Owned Black Riffle Coffee Company!
  21. For the last half dozen years or so I have been making ball and cup games and taking them to the volunteers at the local Akron Children's Hospital. This year I decided to change it up and make Harry Potter wands. I have a dozen done so another dozen to go. Made them from some 5/8" birch dowels 48" long. Each one yields four wands. The handle comes from some spindles I salvaged from a crib I saw on garbage day some years ago. Each spindle yields four handles so they work well with the dowels. Here is the dozen done so far. There are seven
  22. Stack cut a total of 8 each, 1/2" birch ply (2 at a time) & 1/4" (4 at a time). They need cleaned up a bit & then we'll add a splash of color, then a coat of spray poly later. Patterns are Patrick Spielman & Travis from Scrollsaw Village.
  23. I cruised the after Christmas sales last year and bought some one inch glass bulbs for future use. I have been making some inside out ornaments with them in between cutting grass cutting and other Summer chores. Here is a sample of them.
  24. Handy Dan's Cross Christmas Ornament really got me.... so simple and so beautiful. So many of you inspire me to become a better turner. I really like to have instructions in my hand to follow along when making something with exacting instructions. So with Dan's permission I created a PDF sheet on how to turn this project. Now I'll have printed instructions with me when I attempt this one. No excuses now.... Thanks Handy Dan! I also posted this on the EWT FB Page (With @HandyDan's permission) Inside Out Cross Ornament.pdf
  25. I didn't know what stutter tool was or how to use it. Following advise from this forum and utube, I am having fun experimenting with different techniques and variations. Tomorrow I am going to make some different tools and keep on with different ideas I have. This is my first piece and tomorrow I will turn it down again and apply some more ideas I have experimented with . Thanks for the advise
