I know this is not a shop tour or anything like that, but I was going back in my time warp and a couple years ago I shot a quick video of our two dogs playing with each other, it's amazing how our bigger dog Jessie lets our little dog Woody just take over, the two love each other, and they play like this all the time, I thought it was pretty funny, they were actually going at it for a good 10 minutes before I shot the rest of their wrestling adventure. And the names? You ever seen Toy Story? Woody and Jessie? My kids named the dogs, what can I say.
John Morris posted a topic in AnnouncementsI realize this is a very late notice Patriot Woodworkers. We have an auction coming up that will support a wonderful organization. They are Medical Service Dogs We are going to fabricate a few woodworking items to send GAMSD for their auction that takes place on the 21st of this month. We are asking any volunteers who may want to turn a bowl, turn a pen, make a cutting board, or something crafty, to email me at email@example.com to arrange for shipping of the item you want to donate or leave a message here in this topic. We may also be able to help with the shipping costs to GAMSD. Again their auction takes place on the 21st of this month, their location is in Williston FL, so you'll want to allow a week for shipping if you are on the west coast. We hope our woodworkers will answer the call. If you carry an inventory of craft items, please consider donating one or more to this great organization. Personally I am fabricating a shaker wall shelf from Curly Maple to ship to them. I have donated those shelf's in the past to auctions and they do very well! Thank you woodworker's! Here is the shipping address and phone number to GAMSD Central Florida Headquarters Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs, Inc. 3251 NE 180th Ave. Williston, FL 32696 352-425-1981 I hope some of you can answer this call, it's a great cause, they out-fit our veterans who are visually impaired with their service dogs. I am proud to support this organization and I hope to do more for them in the future.
Ok, since the workmate is busy holding up a 70 pound toolbox, decided the holdfasts/dogs could be used on my workBENCH. Laid out a few holes, about 6" or so apart. Needed a 3/4" drill bit. Last time, the Forstner bit was quite the ticket, wallered the hole a bit. Needed something better Something like this. Bit is 3/4", sweep of the brace is 10". Millers Falls brace, at that. Got the bit nice and tight in the chuck, and stood this thing up on the bench Almost chin-level. Drill a few holes, testing the fit as I go along Those little black squares are the B&D Workamate dogs. Had to sand them a bit, for a less snug fit. Still need a hammer to tap them home. Grabbed some scrap and a small plane, tested the track out Now, instead of changing out the drill bit, got to thinking ( a dangerous thing, right there) why not just set things up to just grab a completely set up Brace & Bit, and be ready to drill almost any set of holes? Well, I might have the answer to that Just grab a size and drill away. Some people have a bunch of electric routers set up, I have brace & bits set up. Biggest bit gets the largest brace, and on down the line. tried out a larger chunk of scrap wood, and a larger plane A 1-1/2" thick chunk of white oak, and a jack plane. Dogs seem to work. Now need to cobble an end vise of some sort......
Who We Are
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!
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.
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.
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.
