  1. December 7th a day that will live in infamy. A special day to remember. A day to stop, reflect, self-inspect and support those of the “Greatest Generation” that answered the call. May we never forget that they didn’t hesitate but gave their all to make this the Greatest Nation on this earth. At the shop shop we are busy filling Christmas orders now that we have finished our last show of the season. Cornhole boards are are still high on the list. Two more sets in the assembly area. and two more sets in the finishing room. Six more sets to finish this coming week. I started last night roughing out some blanks for some Walnut hand mirrors. Turned one down close just to check my measurements since it’s been a while since I’ve made these. The back side will get a Maple insert with an initial engraved in the center. That’s what it looks like right now in my shop, what’s on your weekend agenda? Share your projects and pictures. Whatever you you do have fun and be safe.
  2. Here we are at the last weekend in November. Where has this year gone? Seems like a few weeks ago we were wrapping up the season and here we are again. Our shop hop has been busy these past come of weeks readying for our final show of the year, Sugarplum Marketplace. A three day show that started yesterday and runs through Saturday evening. Yesterday was a busy day for us and we more than covered our booth cost so now it’s on to selling out. Cutting Boards! Slab Boards and some signs made on the CNC. Breadboards and Cheese Boards. And even a few Porch signs that have become popular! What’s on your agenda this weekend and as we head into the Christmas Season? Share your projects with us and post those pictures. Love to see what everyone else is working on and the wonderful craftsmanship that you all bring to the forum. Whatever you do have fun and be safe!
  3. Here’s hoping you all have a great Thanksgiving and got to enjoy family Food and fun! We’ve been busy getting ready for the last show of the season next weekend. I’ve finished a large batch of cutting boards of different sizes. We also finished another set of cornhole boards and only have seven more sets to go. Thats our shop, what’s on you agenda for this Black Friday? Finding bathing or spending time in the shop? We love to see and hear about your projects so share with us your holiday weekend agenda. Whatever you do, be save and have fun!
  4. John Moody is on the road today so I’m filling in. Last weekend, we did a large holiday show on Saturday. It was a 7 hour show with 168 vendors and over 2700 people came through the doors. We did very well at the show AND I was able to get a piece delivered this week that I had been building. Right now I'm building 6” cheese boards since I sold 32 of them last Saturday. Tomorrow we have a charity auction to attend and rest on Sunday. So, what’s on your weekend Agenda?
  5. Hey I’m back at it again. I had a couple of Friday’s that just got busy early and Ron came to my rescue. This week we have been working on Cedar shutters for a customer. Got them all sanded and ready for delivery today. While we were waiting on those to dry we got a panel glued for a kitchen work table glued out of Red Elm. Still making stock for our last show of the year. Glued a batch of cutting booand last night got them all run through the drum sander. This weekend will be more of the same. Take time out out this weekend to recognize our veterans and let them know how much you appreciate them and the sacrifices they made. So what’s on your agenda? We love to see and hear about your projects so post them and pictures so we can see what you are working on. Have a great weekend and whatever you do have fun and be safe.
  6. Can you believe that we’re into November already? The good news is that in 5 days we can retake our televisions from the politicians. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m on the local election board so this is a very busy season for me. This afternoon is poll worker training and Monday is traveling board to vote the shut ins and Tuesday is the general election. I’ve been building a unit for a customer and today was stain day. Hopefully, I can shoot the first coat of Endurovar Sunday afternoon. It is scheduled to be picked up on the 14th. I think I may make it. The pix are with stain only. so tell me, what’s on Your Weekend Agenda?
  7. Mr. Moody is busier than a one armed paper hanger and has asked to do his Friday post. It is crunch time in Indiana. I’m on the local election board and we have been prepping for the November elections. Plus, I’m building a shelved cabinet that has to be out the door by December 1st and I have a show to do on November 10. Busy, busy, busy. Today I’m rebuilding a door for the cabinet because I just didn’t like the way the other one looked. The customer wants inset doors to match an existing piece of furniture and that piece isn’t exactly high quality. It’s been a chore. So gang, what’s on Your Weekend Agenda?
  8. Well it seems as if fall has arrived. Last week it was in the 90’s and this week we are in the low 70’s. I love the cooler weather and we are busy in the shop. Today we are working on making and 8’, 2” thick Cherry Cross. Working on the half lap joints right now. At the assembly table we are ready pieces for cutting boards. And of course we still have cornhole boards everywhere. Last week I build this display piece for the range to put AR rifles in a horizontal position. i used my CNC to cut the mortises for the upright pieces. Finished it and took it to the range. So lots going on here and we are readying for Christmas. Whats on on your weekend agenda? I always love love to see your projects and hear about what you are working on. Share your photos and projects. Whatever you you do have fun and work safe!
  9. Well, the farm table is finished and will be transported to my nephew’s house tomorrow for my niece to apply stain and finish. Today I’m building a matching bench. I’m growing really tire of cutting tenons and drilling mortises. That’s what I’m doing. What’s on your Patriot Woodworker Weekend Agenda?
  10. I’m pinching hitting again today. John Moody had his eyes dilated and can’t see to type. My nephew helped me side my house and now we’re building his wife a farm house table. This beast is 84” long and 40” wide and weights a ton. The top is 6/4 popular and they are going to put some kind of gel stain on it. We also have to build a matching bench. That’s my weekend project. What’s on your Patriot Woodworker Agenda?
  11. It’s beensaid that every good pitcher needs a backup so here I am. Today, I’m John Moody’s hairy legged backup for the Friday post. Finally, we finished siding our house and I’m back in the shop. My to do list has gotten only longer in the past month while I turned siding expert but mama is happy. I have a show in November and I’m building jewelry boxes but tomorrow I’ll start building an 84” x 40” farm table. So, as John would say, “What’s on your Weekend Agenda?”
  12. This weekend is the beginning of fall and it’s hard to tell here. Yesterday was a record setting day for temperatures, we hit 100. I’m not a fan of real cold weather but I could take a break from these long super hot days. My AC is working overtime. We finished the table with the metal base and expecting it to be picked up today. It has one bench and the will use chairs on the other side. Today we will finish up a Green Egg Smoker table made of Cedar. Thats going to be about it this weekend. Saturday I’m traveling to Talladega, Alabama to CMP Range to shoot in the GLOCK XXV match as part of the GSSF. They are expecting some 200 shooters and the range is located behind the Talladega Motor Sports Speedway. Looks like it will be a long hot day but I’m excited to get the opportunity. So so what’s on your agenda this weekend. Share your projects and pictures that you are working on. We all love to see them and hear about what your doing. Whatever you do this weekend, have fun and be safe!
  13. 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.
  14. 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!
  15. 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!
  16. 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.
  17. 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!
  18. 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!
  19. 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!
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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?
  24. 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?
  25. 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?
