  1. Tables have been the order of business this week. We were sent a picture to build a base for a table. They already had a top they wanted to use so we got it going. Yesterday we got all the little accent pieces put on and now it is in the finishing room. it is is going to be painted and they are dropping the paint by so we can start today. Since it was being painted we used up some small pieces of wood laying around to do all the accents. While that one was being put together we started on a large Maple table top and 2” tubing base. The top was to be 48”x60”x2”. Had to do it in a couple of glue ups to keep flat and ensure good joints. After we made the last glue up to be just over 48” wide we sent a picture to the customer and they quickly decided it was too big for the room so we will be cutting it down. The Base is 2” square tubing so the shop turned to welding. Both my sons are certified welders so I left it up to them. The base is now together and the end pieces for a bench that will go with the table. A little more grinding and sanding and a primer will get sprayed this weekend and then it will be sprayed Black. The frame and bench ends will get levers drilled and inserted to protect floors. We are hopful of finishing all this over the weekend but you just never know. Saturday I’m shooting in a GSSF competition. So that’s our agenda, what’s on your agenda this weekend? share your projected and pictures as we all here at TPW love to see everything you are working on. For those in the path of Florence, we hope and pray you are safe. Whatever your plans this weekend, have fun and be safe.
  2. This weekend begins dove season here in Alabama so I’m planning on being in a corn field at noon Saturday for some shooting fun. Probably wont get a lot of shop work done so I’m going to the shop today for a while and help work on more of the oak tables. Two more tops are stained and about ready to be mounted to the bases. So that’s what’s happening here this weekend and in the shop, what’s on your agenda? All of us here at TPW love to hear about your projects, so share your photos and agenda with us. Even if your just relaxing and having Coffee. What ever very you do this weekend, have fun and be safe!
  3. Labor Day weekend and the beginning of College Football and lots to do. Still in the dog days of summer here, but you can tell that cooler temps are on the way and fall won't be too far off. I'm already thinking about readying the shop for winter and it's been upper 90's all week. I've been working all this week at the range so no shop time foe me, but the boys have been busy with several projects. Corn hole boards and Oak Table tops in glue up. Corn hole boards are Cherry and Maple. All of the boards we have been making are hardwoods, no plywood or MDF in these. We have been tuning them out as fast as the two of them can glue up tops and put them together. Frames cut out for the next batch. I am spraying the final finish on the Walnut/Cedar chest this morning. Hope to have it out of the finishing room and delivered this evening or tomorrow. Had a run around the "G" and had to sand it down so I can fix that. The finishing room as been so full we have been moving pieces in and out to try to finish as quickly as possible. Not sure what we would have done without this finishing room. Like everything, now I wish i had made it twice the size! So this weekend will be busy in the shop part of the time, no volleyball this weekend. I am shooting in USPSA this weekend so I have to get some reloads done and ready at some point. So what's on your long Labor Day holiday weekend agenda? As always, we here at TPW love to see your projects, shops and hear about your weekend plans. So post those picture and share with us what you have planned. Whatever you do this weekend, have fun and be safe!
  4. This has been a busy week starting with last Saturday. I got called in to work in the range for Sig Sauer day. It was awesome as these guys are top of the line trainers. I had the pleasure of meeting and working alongside Panda, one of the Sig academy top trainers. You could pay $5.00 and shoot all the guns on the table and they furnished the ammo. Yesterday I finally got the screen door I made to the customer and installed. Since everything was out of square on the door frame I had to trim the door to fit. All is is good and everything worked. We also delivered a Green Egg table yesterday. So today we are back on the Oak tables to finish them. I know many of you will be traveling to the meet this weekend and hope to see lots of pictures and hear many stories. Have a great time, wish I was with you. So so how about the rest of you? What’s on you agenda this weekend. We we love to see and hear about your projects. Whatever yiu you do have fun and be safe.
  5. It has been a busy week in our shop as we were trying to meet a deadline and get some projects out. We were given a short time but we managed to deliver the important pieces and get it setup. My son, Josh has done most of the work with me being the "in the way management", but we all jumped in and helped. It is really nice to be able to move pieces into the finishing room while sanding or milling is going on in the shop. I had this nice Oak slab we used for the top of the Welcome Center and we used the self leveling epoxy to finish it. That way it covered and gave a nice thick smooth finish and really highlighted the grain in the White Oak. Yep, we left the cracks and filled them in with epoxy. Also did this sound console for the youth area where this was all going. Didn't really get a picture of it but there is one wall in this area they have covered with the corrugated tin. And we got the Oak table stained, assembled and delivered. This weekend we have out of town company so not a lot of shop time. Also have SIG day at the range so I'll be there part of Saturday. I'm already thinking Sunday afternoon will be recliner time! Today we are assembling more of the tables and working on a few small things in the shop. So what's on your weekend agenda? As always, we love to hear about all the projects from our TPW members. Post those pictures and share those projects. Whatever you do this weekend, have fun and be safe!
  6. It seems to me like the weeks are just flying by. I sometimes wonder where the time is going. I turn around and the weekend is here again, and that's a good thing. This weekend we are readying for a show in a small town just east of us. Setting up this afternoon and going till Saturday evening. Looks like it will be hot and humid, but then what else would it be in August in Alabama. It seems the more projects we send out the door, the more that are coming in. My two sons are working hard during the week while I am at the shooting range working and then Thursday and Friday and the weekend we all hit it hard. My shop was not really built to have three people working at the same time on different projects, but we seem to be finding a way to get them done. Emptying the dust collectors keeps one person busy! So we have finished up a plain set of maple corn hole boards that will be painted white and later have the a decal of the shooting range on them to use at the range on First Saturday which is Burgers and Bullets. The boys did a nice set of Maple boards with Alabama decals for another customer. We build the boards and them put the customers decal on of their favorite team before we spray a finish. @Ron Dudelston we even had a request for a set and put a Notre Dame decal on it. Hey it they provide the decal and the money, I will put them on for them. We are also in the middle of a pretty good size job building ten 42" square Oak tables for a local church. Yesterday we got this one mostly together for our prototype so we would have all the measurements and figure out and assembly and clamping issues. Lots of rounding over to do and fitting but we are about ready to start running all the pieces. We are having fun and busy in the shop! What's on your weekend agenda? We love to see your projects and hear all about them. Share your projects and pictures of your weekend agenda. Whatever you do this weekend, have fun and be safe!
  7. We have finally made it to the dog days of summer although it seems around here they started the first of June. We have been in the 90's more days than not around here. I am so thankful that I put a new AC unit int he shop this year, that baby had been working hard. Didn't get too much done in the shop last weekend with the three granddaughters here from Saturday till Monday morning. They are loads of fun, but will wear you out in 5 minutes. But this week we are working on two projects. Yep still making corn hole games and still have some on order. My youngest son, Andrew was in the shop yesterday sanding on the boards getting them ready for the finishing room. As you can see the shop is a mess but lots of work going on in there. Three of the boards are in the finishing room, two of them getting sprayed and the other waiting on him to finish the second of the pair. I love being able to move them into the finishing room and spray while they keep cutting and sanding. Just got the second coat of Sanding Seal on these two and ready to spray the finish coats on. My other son Josh, has been cutting and gluing oak boards to make some 42" square tables for a job. He has one glued that needs to be squared up and the others in sections about ready to glue together and make the top. Then we will start on the bases which will be trestle bases. While I was waiting on finish to dry I was playing with the CNC and trying out a few setting to see how they would turn out. Sorry about this picture, the glare washed out one side. I'll try to get a better picture to share. We have First Friday's show this weekend and Saturday I'll be at the range doing Burgers and Bullets as I'm the grill master. So that is what's on the agenda in our shop, what's on your weekend agenda? We here at TPW love to see all of the great projects you are working on. Above all, have a great weekend and whatever you do, have fun and be safe!
  8. Not a busy shop weekend here, but will be busy with 3 of the granddaughters, 12,2 and 1 1/2. Should be a busy fun time. Yesterday i I spent some time getting a model loaded into the computer so I can start to cut and make some grips for my 1911’s with the CNC instead of shaping by hand. Josh and Andrew managed to get the order of corn hole games out and now have orders for four more sets. Wow, those have turned into a busy time. I got dye and the first coats of finish on some shelves that go to the range I never finishes a while back. I got one side done and then sidetracked. By the way I love my finishing room. so that’s about it around my shop. What’s on you agenda this weekend.
  9. It seems here that corn hole games have become the hot item. We have been quite busy gluing up tops for the games. Today we were busy in the shop cutting and getting five tops glued and one more ready but ran out of clamps. You know you can never have too many clamps. We made a set for an Auburn fan. They furnished the stick-on decal and we applied it and then sprayed on the clear finish. I'm an Alabama fan, but I won't turn down an order from an Auburn fan. I posted a picture of the Singer Sewing Table last week, but it got sprayed over the weekend with General Finishes Enduro Var and delivered to the customer. I'm also trying to finish up a Cedar Chest with Walnut accents. Got the skirt pieces all cut and mitered just need to get them on now. Lots to do this weekend. And today I had a meeting with a wonderful 92 year old lady that wanted a set of finials for her new gate and post. She had this very nice picture showing the gate and finials. She has already had the gate built and need the finials turned. So I went by and met with her and will be getting on turning the finials in the next couple of weeks to fit the post. My two sons and I have been quite busy in the shop lately and it has been loads of fun. So what's on your agenda this July weekend? Love to hear about and see all of your projects. Share with us whats on your agenda this weekend.
  10. It seems like the dog days of summer got here early this year. Record setting heat has meant staying in the cool and I'm thankful for the AC in the shop. This week has been a busy one and will continue into the weekend. Corn hole games have been the run here lately. I guess everyone is enjoying the outside time and playing games. This set got finished and is made from Walnut, Cherry and Maple wood, no plywood in our game boards. Our customer wanted this out of several woods which seems at times to have become our signature. Not at my house with that Auburn flag in the background. So today we got pieces cut out and milled for two more sets that have been ordered. Got this jointed, planed and cut to size and glued into panels today. This weekend we will finish these. Also worked on a Quarter Sawn White Oak slab to make a table top for and old Singer Sewing machine bottom. This Slab was just over 20" wide and after running it through the dual drum sander it leveled out at 1 5/8" thick. Tomorrow we will get it sanded and moved into the finishing room for a stain and clear finish. Should be ready for delivery the first of the week. Saturday I will be at the Shooting Range part of the day as we are having SilencerCo in for a Range day. They are bringing suppressors and machine guns to shoot and demonstrate their line of suppressors. So thats my weekend, what's on your agenda this weekend? As always, we here at TPW love to hear about your project and see what you are working on. Share your weekend agenda with us.
  11. Indedendence Day 2018 is now in the books and all of the dogs are beginning to calm down. Fortunately, our heat wave has broken here in Indiana also. Grandpa Dave, did I pick a good year to install a new HVAC system, or what! It’s been a slow week in the shop. I built and delivered a double sided map case to a friend and it was a labor of love. We decided to make it a desk mount, though. Nothing planned for the shop for me this weekend. How about y’all. What’s on Your Weekend agenda?
  12. Summer is flying by. Here we are headed into the final weekend in June and we’re looking at Independence Day next week. Shop wise, I started a small job this week. I’m building a double sided glass shadow box for a friend of mine. His dad was a WWII Purple Heart vet and served in the South Pacific. He was carrying a silk AAF map of Japan with him when he was hot in the arm and I’m building a case for the map. BTW, the map still bears the blood stains of his father. Originally we were going to build the case to hang on the wall but with a weight of 24 pounds he opted to make a desk mount. Unfortunately, I failed in convincing him to let me put UV archival glass in it. Too costly he felt. Sigh. Anyway, they’re calling for excessive heat warnings for Indiana so I’m planning not to stray far from the A/C. What’s on your Patriot Woodworker agenda?
  13. It’s been a light week here at Above and Beyond WoodWorks. I completed a small bookcase that I have up for sale and I’m mentally thinking through a two sided hanging map display that I have been commissioned to build. The enjoyment of the week came yesterday when my daughter brought our 12 year old granddaughter and her cousin over to spend the night. Our daughter is an elementary school art and music teacher and she has a knack for getting dear old dad roped into projects. Usually, I go willingly. She brought over a rolled oats container that was half full of hardened epoxy. Mixed into the epoxy was a random group of colored pencils. We peeled the cardboard off the outside, mounted it to a faceplate and gave her a lesson in turning. Remember that I usually turn out of necessity but this was fUn because we did it together. The bowl had a few air pockets in it but we together. It’ll be a guitar pick holder so a couple holes won’t hurt it. As for the weekend, there’s no shop time. We still have the granddaughter through Saturday and Sunday is worship and the the LOML and I are headed to Indy to a Doobie Brothers and Steely Dan concert. So gang, What’s on Your Weekend Agenda?
  14. A good Friday morning to all of you Patriot Woodworkers. If you've been keeping up on the forums, it has been a very busy week for y'all and it appears that many projects are in the works. This week, my wife and I broke down and bought new phones. My carrier had a BOGO on iPhone 8s so we're now learning the nuances of the new toys. Also this week, I built a small bookcase, just because. Just because I had a half sheet of plywood in the corner and it was more fun to build something with it than move it around. The case is only 24" wide and 48" tall and I'll probably put it up for sale at my next show. Its been fun because I really didn't know what color(if any) to dye or stain it so I made a sample board and threw it out on my Facebook page as a poll. As of now, its either golden oak or red oak stain. The weather here is predicted to be extremely hot and my son and I are going to build an 80' fence on his new property that is now totally houseless. So gang, what's on your agenda for this weekend? Starting a new project, finishing one or simply relaxing?
  15. Sitting here by the pool in east central Indiana watching the hummingbirds feed. This morning is cool, crisp and damp and the coffee is hot. We finally got some much needed rain last night so all is right with the world. This has been a laid back week with just a little shop time even though my to do list is long. I am retired after all! On Wednesday, Dorothy and I took our two youngest granddaughters to Shipshewana Indiana to attend a large flea market and see the sights. Shipshewana is Amish country filled with shops and amazing food. If you're ever in northern Indiana, it is a great place to spend the day. I did manage to make some progress on a few gun display cases this week and will finish them today. The oak one is sold already and since I was building, I made a cherry and walnut one for stock. The oak case will also have the owner's ID and badges from his lifetime as an arson investigator. On a side note, the pistol laying in the case is the least favorite gun I own. It is a Ruger P95 and shoots fine but it has an odd feel to m y hand. It does make a stellar demo for the case. No big plans for the weekend so far but what's on your Patriot Woodworker agenda for this weekend?
  16. Well gang, we are ushering in a new month as June is upon us. I trust your holiday shortened week has treated you well. As many of you already know, last Sunday was race day for my son and I as we sweltered in the 92 degree heat with 300,000 of my closest friends. One of the many traditions at the Indy 500 during the pre-race ceremonies is the blowing of taps to pay honor to those who gave their lives fighting for this country. Just across the track from us is the infamous "Snake Pit" where 30,000 highly intoxicated people listen to rack music instead of watch the race. Interestingly, during the pre-race festivities all music stopped but there was still lots of crowd noise. However, when taps were blown the entire speedway was stone silent. You could hear absolutely nothing and it was one of those solemn moments I'll never forget. My week has been light as I played lifeguard in our pool for the grand-kids but I did manage to get a good start on three pistol display cases. One cherry, one oak and a walnut. Tomorrow I've volunteered to help my son build a 12 X 16 shed. So, Patriot Woodworkers, what's on your weekend agenda?
  17. Well folks, we have made it through the week and we're staring at the first holiday weekend of the summer of 2018. Memorial Day always conjures up memories for me. I have a picture around here of me when I was about 8 years marching in my Cub Scout uniform toward the cemetery on Memorial Day. We always made the tour of the cemeteries to place flowers on the graves of our relatives and Dorothy and I still do. Back then the Indy 500 was run on Memorial Day, not the Sunday before and I would sit on the front porch listening on a static laced AM radio imagining the action in my mind. Those dreams did come true and I have attended the race many times and have only missed it 3 times since 1964. Twice when I was serving for my favorite uncle (Sam) and last year when my seatmate and son had emergency gall bladder surgery 3 days before the race. This year's race is forecast to be a hot one with the high coming in around 90. Couple that with the track temperature of about 130 degrees, it will be toasty in row EE of turn #3. The picture below is close to where we sit so here's our view. So Patriot Woodworkers, what's on your agenda this Memorial Day weekend? Woodworking, picnic, nothing?
  18. This has been a beautiful week in east central Indiana. The trees are fully leafed, the temperature has averaged in the high 70's and most importantly, its racing time in Indiana. I'm a huge Indycar fan and since we live in the mecca of open wheel racing, I have to attend. I've missed only 3 Indy 500's since 1965. Two when I was serving time with my favorite uncle (Sam) in SE Asia and last year. My son and seatmate had emergency gall bladder surgery a couple days before the race last year and we opted to watch it on TV. Just isn't the same. You don't get the smell of the burnt fuel and the lunacy of the Snake Pit drunks. I have 5 tickets so if you ever get the yen to go, let me know. Yesterday, we completed our part of the de-construction of my son's house and we're waiting on a local guy to show up and rip the concrete slab out and take it away. I spent a little time in the shop this week building a pair of cherry veteran's burial flag cases but all in all it has been pretty calm. Patriot Woodworkers, what's on your weekend agenda?
  19. I'm sure happy that the elections here in Indiana are over for 6 months. I'm the chairman of the local election board and it has been a very long week that started last Thursday. Even with the election process going on, I was able to spend some time with my son tearing down his newly purchased house. Yesterday marked 6 weeks since we started the de-construction process and with any luck the structure will be on the ground next Monday. The pictures below show our progress as of tonight. The roof is off half the house and hopefully it will be totally off by Saturday. Not much shop time this week and none scheduled for the weekend. So, here's the question Patriot Woodworkers, "What's on your weekend agenda?"
  20. Like many states around the U.S., Indiana is right in the middle of its Primary Election cycle. That being said, the primary has impacted yours truly because I'm the chairman of our county election board and my life has been filled with meetings and numerous trips to the courthouse as well as the traveling board trips to homes and nursing homes so that the sick and shut ins can exercise their right to vote. Even with the election board duties, I've had the opportunity to build a small oak bookcase for my office area. This weekend we'll continue deconstruction of my son's newly purchased house. So, fellow woodworkers, what's on your Patriot Woodworker agenda for the weekend?
  21. Spring has FINALLY arrived in east central Indiana. The yard received its first mowing of the year yesterday and all is right with the world. It has been a busy week here. We continue to deconstruct a house that my son bought. We're on the fourth 40 yard dumpster and making progress. The pic below shows the progress as of last Saturday but now we have the house down to bare studs. Next up for removal is the roof. Monday, we had a new HVAC system installed so the LOML can stay toasty or cool (her choice, not mine). As for shop time, I have been building a small oak bookcase for my office area. The weekend is full with a Lincoln Day dinner and a memorial service on Sunday afternoon. Of course, worship on Sunday morning. So folks, what's on your Patriot Woodworker weekend agenda?
  22. Well Patriot Woodworkers it is Friday the 13th. Anyone superstitious folks out there? Personally, Friday the 13th is a "lucky" day for me. I separated the Air Force on Friday, July 13th. This has been a week of construction/destruction. I just finished a utility cabinet for my daughter and we are continuing to de-construct a house that my son bought. Tomorrow, I'm going to an auction to try to snag some wood. We'll see how that goes in the rain. So, what's on your agenda for this spring weekend?
  23. It is Friday already! It seemed that Fridays came slowly when I was working but now they're here before I realize it. Its been a busy week here in the Heartland. I drove across state this week and picked up a new HVAC system that will be installed next week, continued deconstructing a house with my son (we're down to bare studs on the interior), and I've spent a ton of ton studying to teach our Sunday School class. In my spare time I finished a cabinet for my daughter and built a couple of window sashes for a friend. My daughter has a small utility room that houses her water softener and the middle granddaughter has her drums in the same room. They wanted a cabinet to cover the softener but also be functional. It was a bit tricky because it had to be open on the back so that it would slide over the softener but it had cabinet space on the side adjacent to the front door. Made my head hurt but we got it completed. Pic below. Notice that she gets to paint it and the upper cabinet is on the side opposite the cart. So, the weekend is coming! What's on your Patriot Woodworker agenda?
  24. Hey gang, Friday is here again. Been a weird week in my shop because of what I built and what I'm destroying. I finished flocking the jewelry box trays yesterday but the rest of the week was spent helping two other families. My neighbor has a sump that empties the water from his basement and he wanted a make a trough with a fake pitcher pump to catch the water. The drain line will go to the bottom of the pump and it will drain into a 4 foot long horse trough. Time will tell how we did. The rest of my free time went to help my son. He bough a house across the street from his at a Freddie Mac sale and we are "deconstructing" it. Looks like this may take all summer and I'm not sure my old body will take it. This house looks like the Winchester Mansion, Midwest edition. The guy had add ons everywhere. We've been at it a week and here are a few pictures showing our progress.
  25. Another busy week in my shop. We finished a Cedar table for a Primo smoker/grill that was picked up this morning. Yesterday we started working on four doors for two tall cabinets. These will be going out to Texas close to Waco. I was given four old shutters and they want me to build a frame around them and make two doors per cabinet. We are building the frame from Poplar. I think her plans are to paint the outside of the doors. We will make a panel to fit the bottom of the door. I was looking through my lunch ear and decided to use some Pecan for the panels. We took some thick pieces I had and resawed then to get book match pieces. They will then be set in a grove so the panels float. I think when we finish the panels they will look close to the shutters. And now I’m just waiting on Ron and Dorothy Dudleston to get here for the weekend. Whats on your agenda this weekend. Love to see all of your projects and here about them for the weekend. Whatever you do, have fun and be safe.
