  1. Well, it’s been busy in the shop lately. My grand daughter got two puppies (long haired dachunds), man are they the cutest puppies I’ve ever seen. So I made a dog feeder for her. Then a friend wanted a dog feeder for her chihuahua pup. Then I made a planter for the front porch and was asked if I could make 6 more (of course I would) sold them for 30 dollars a piece and realized I only broke even. Forgot the cost of materials,had gone up. But that’s ok, keeps me busy. Then last night we received a call saying my sister passed away from Altzhiemers. Anyhow, here are the photos of what I made. Not perfect, but with my hands that shake the way they do, I don’t think they look too bad. Oh, my grand daughter also asked if I could make this for her also (she calls it a sculpture. It’s supposed to be her and the pup.
  2. We spend A LOT of time watching kids sports. We have been lucky enough that we have become friends with a lot of the other parents. I was talking to some people and showing some of the projects that I have done. They had a ton of questions for me about wood working. Questions like: What projects do you like to do best? What steps of the process is the most fun? is there anything you do not like about a project? What do you like best about woodworking? It brought on some fun conversation for me. I told them, I am ususaly a one and done project guy. I do one project and rarely do i make it again. I like the whole process of the project, for the most part. I love drawing it out, and using all the tools, and watching the project transform and come together. The only thing i do not like is figuring out a lumber list. I guess my favorite thing for me is, the whole process. I do love to make something unique for someone and give it away. It got me thinking of the rest of you guys. If you were asked these questions, what would your answers be?
  3. Woodworkers, Welcome to "The Patriot Woodworker". I myself, Tru Welborn, has joined the forum. I started beating on wood as far back as I can remember. I am a Master Woodworker. I have never found anything that I couldn't make out of a piece of wood. Please visit "woodtalkwithtru" on YouTube and watch Episode 005 to see a montage of my work. I will be posting on the forum more work as I get the opportunity. Please Subscribe, Like and Share my podcast as I appreciate all those that take the time to visit my podcast. Please visit "The Patriot Woodworker" often as they have a great knowledge base. Added are a few examples of my work. Thanks, Tru
  4. Lets say I'm vending woodcrafts at the park and mamma lets her kid buy a small wooden tray. The kid gets a splinter, mamma takes the kid to the emergency room with no insurance, and I get a $14,000 bill. Or mamma steps on it, the dog eats a piece, and mamma gets the dawg a $25,000 operation - then the dowg dies three weeks later. Do crafters get sued? Are most crafters careful about what they sell because of potential liability? I'd rather not go into my twilight selling soaps and macramé . . .

  6. I personally love Anne of All Trades and what she does on her homestead and how she blogs about it all. Such a positive young lady, humble and full of energy and joy to share what she knows as she learns it.
  7. For my quarantined friends, and anyone for that matter. If you need some really good viewing, and if you need educational programming as well for you home schoolers, you can use the Crafts in America videos for the art portion of your child's education, but for all, the shows are just a wonderful time. Best viewed on a large screen, with good sound. I have seen every single one of these PBS shows, over the last few years, and every single one knocks it out of the park. Craft in America » EPISODES WWW.CRAFTINAMERICA.ORG You can also find their YouTube Channel and view the larger format than what's available on the website. I watched their latest show "Identity" this past weekend and loved it. Cheers!

  9. I love this book, I ordered it from Tools For Working Wood and it's also available on Amazon. The book is a hard cover and full of great illustrations and images. The author Jogge Sundqvist walks you through what is needed to carve bowls, wooden ware and many other useful items for the home and garden. The principal of Slojd is to create self sufficiency in work, from making your own tools, to cutting down a tree or parts of a tree, and processing the wood by hand to bring it to the point of working it into something useful. I have become as of late very interested in wood carving, green woodworking and other bodger type work. I will someday build a pole lathe as well. Jogge walks you through the processes from which tools to purchase for carving, how to keep them sharp, and how to use the special Swedish knife grips that look very intimidating at first, but once you study how ingenious the grips are, and the natural safety stops in place to prevent from cutting oneself, it all makes sense and I cannot wait to get a hold of some green tree limbs and start splitting and working the wood with hatchet and knives. I give this book a big thumbs up. Enjoy!
  10. For the past few weeks I have been completely engrossed in a book "The Art of Violin Making". Been reading it every night, pouring over the text, and the images, it is a wonderful book that starts off with the history of the violin, the main characters or makers, and of course, eventually a quarter of the way through the book, you get to the actual making of the violin. I love this book, my interest is completely peaked, and I want to make a violin in a big way. I have my violinist daughter encouraging me on my way as well. I have one burning question thus far. I have read in depth about the early makers from Amati, Stradivari, Guarneri, and Stainer. They all used Amati's designs and styles in way or another, and etc etc. It's a great book, so back to my burning question. There is no place in this book that states if these greats ever played a single note on the violin, if they ever slid the bow across a single string. From what I could read, they depended wholly on the feedback of the artists who purchased their violins. So, my question to you is, can you come up with any research, googled, or otherwise, that declares that any of the greats mentioned above, actually played the violin. It's amazing, I have this wonderful book, and again, no where does it state they ever played a violin, or any other stringed instrument. I know if I spent some time I could find the answer, but I just thought it'd be a fun discussion to kick around here. Back to my new thirst for making a violin, it looks incredibly fun, and a complete challenge. Not a single powered tool is needed, obviously, nor is a single powered tool used even by the great makers of today, but they may use a band saw to re-saw their logs for the tops or backs. Beyond that, it's all hand work, I love it. Woodworking, in a big way.

  13. North House was founded in 1997 by a small handful of inspired locals passionate about traditional craft and cooperative learning. When we published the first catalog of 12 courses (including Inuit kayak building, Scandinavian bowl carving, and canoe paddle making), North House didn't yet have a home — or even a classroom. However, two old forest service buildings on the harbor serendipitously became available, and North House settled in and began building a campus. Campus has changed and expanded over the years, but those two original buildings — the red building and the blue building — are still at its heart. North House has thrived over the ensuing two decades, and now hosts over 350 classes and 3,000 students per year, and connects students and instructors from all over the state, country, and world.
