This was a wonderful fundraiser that well exceeded our goal, we do have funds leftover and the remainder will be sent to the family to help start off their new year.

Thank you Woodcraft, Laguna Tools, and Easy Wood Tools for your participation in this annual event, we could not do this without you! 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 fees for gifts. Our Mission We need your help to accumulate funds for Christmas presents for our Wounded Warrior adopted family, who has given much to our nation in physical and emotional sacrifice and much more in family sacrifice. The Wounded Warrior Family I have had the honor of communicating with Mr. Forney and learned much about his wonderful family. Here is a brief introduction to our family this year.

  2. Put some birdhouse ornaments in the kitty for next Christmas. Gives me a little jump on the season.

  4. Are we doing the Wounded Warrior fundraiser this year? I'm asking because I haven't seen any postings about it yet this year. I always look forward to the raffel, seeing what our sponsors are offering this year and how the fund total progresses. It's a good project, and provides a good Christmas for a worthy veteran.
  5. Sometimes when I'm doing a turning there will be a piece left in the chuck that's big enough to get something out of. Often, I'll make an ornament body, or a finial or roof. Scavenged through the pieces this morning and had enough to cabbage together four birdhouse ornaments. I also had a request for a couple Ashley Harwood style ornament stands so I did those up too. The wood on both stands is walnut, the darker one has red aniline dye on it.
  6. Got my ornaments done for this year. Wanted to make balls but wasn't happy how much fussing they needed to get right. Tried a few designs and opted for the center ones here. And since everyone likes an ornament I made 50 of them to give to family and friends. These were colored using Amsterdam ink. Love how well it works and it didn't bleed when coated with wipe on poly. I brushed the poly on and left it. Didn't wipe it off.
  7. Well, a day late. Yesterday got away from me and by the end of the day I was beat. Added stair rails to the deck steps. Mimi has been having difficulty navigating the steps while trying to keep control of the new puppy. First one wasn't as perfect as I would have liked- angles slightly off. Second one went a little better. Apparently my Sketchup drawing was not accurate for the stairs that were already in place. Our Patriot Turners- @Steve Krumanaker gave us an update on the platter he is making.

  8. I originally turned this years ago. It didn’t come out good and I tossed it aside. I used an old piece of pine. It was my first attempt at pre drilling and it didn’t come out well. I reworked part of it & added some bling. I kind of like it
  9. I'm combining several things here. I'm relatively new to spindle turning after fourteen years with bowls and plates. Christmas ornaments for the grandkids - they get a new one each year from G'dad An early attempt at finials. I haven't captured the art or feel for these yet. None are very close to the design in my head or on a nearby piece of paper. We will see how my lighting effect trial works. I drilled through all sides of the blank before turning it, later filling in with somewhat iridescent marbles. Hopefully, they will transmit the Christmas lights through and around. As with most first time projects, I announce that "I could easily do twice as good in half the time if I was to do this again. " Maybe I ought to try to see if there is any truth to it. I like when I can use lacquer and don't have to worry a lot about using something more heavy duty.
  10. I've probably said this before but I don't get in the shop much during the summer months. For one, it's just too darn hot. We have a fairly large yard that requires a lot of maintenance and a couple other hobbies, metal detecting and reading(napping) on the patio keep me busy. Its time to get back at it. The honey farm ordered 25ea. decorative jar lids in two different sizes and 25 dipper lids. Fortunately, I had turned them all in the spring and seal coated them. All I had to do was sand and top coat them. She also wanted an assortment of ornaments for the Christmas season. Not the best picture but you've seen them before. I did start on a project just for fun, something I've had it in my mind to do for a long time. A traditional Native American Style flute. This one is a learning project and a work in progress. If I keep this one, the rubber band will be replaced with a leather cord or something similar. For the record, I will never be mistaken for a musician. I'm also slated to do the Demo for our Oct. wood turning club meeting so I'll start prepping that in the next week or so. The president's challenge this month is to turn something multi-axis so I'm going to turn an offset pendant. It's a simple little two axis project but there are some good techniques involved and it's a great way to use up small cutoffs. It's also a good skill builder. Finally! One more picture and not even about wood turning. My best metal detecting find this summer. Unbelievably, I found it in our back yard. How it got there would be something to know for sure. The inscription is in Latin and the translation is in the print. A 1929 British penny. Hope this doesn't get me booted!!
  11. Hello, D Bryan New to the Group. I make Nativity Scenes for Christmas season. I used treated Plywood last year. It is very ruff does not cut smooth. But will last forever. What would be a better quality plywood that would be durable. I use 3/4”
  12. So last year Woodcraft came out with their Kissmas tree plans, and being simple enough to do that I could make them, I made them. 21 so far, and requests for 3 more as of right now. Painting them can get tedious/monotonous (Alexa has greatly helped with that, got 127 hours of music stored on her through Spotify). Other than the painting I like making them. The point of todays missive is there was an unforeseen bonus to making them. A bunch of the recipients have posted them to me, on Facebook. None of them look remotely the same. I gave them Christmas presents last year and now they’re giving me Christmas presents this year. Now for many of the talented/accomplished artists/woodworkers here, making presents and giving them to people and having the people so happy to get them is probably old hat, but this is really cool for me ! Here are some of the pictures I have gotten.

  14. Well I’m late getting started this year so I am going to try and get moving on the Christmas projects. First off a cutting board. Roughed it out today and glue it up tomorrow. Also chucked up a piece of walnut for a small bowl. Paul
  15. My boss texted me had I made a full size nutcracker. He wants two for his porch. My question is has anyone done this ? If so what wood and where can I get a plan?
  16. A few birdhouse ornaments, these are fun and fairly quick to do. Everyone likes the little birds.
  17. It is that time if you have not already started or planned what you will make for Christmas now is the time to start. I have been working on a commission and getting stock ready for two Christmas shows. Plus I have designed and tested my Christmas gift for this year. Today started putting final touches on snowman ornaments, mushrooms and seam rippers. So what do you have going on? I can show this because "they" are not watching. This years present.
