I'm guessing that most of the members are 50+ to late 70's in age. And our bodies & gray matter are slowly slipping away. And that the kids have started their own families & "gifted" us with grand kids. So--since we are in the twilight of our years and the grand kids are mostly on the computer & probably showing zero interest in woodworking I was just musing if any of us have prearranged gifts for the future unborn grand kids & great grand kids? Something that you have cut out & either built or put the pieces unassembled aside for them? Something from grandpop(grandmom)? If so what? A step stool, crib, table & desk, etc.? My oldest grandkid is hitting 21 soon & marriage shouldn't be too far down the road & I was just wondering if I should start a heirloom project or two. Anybody else on my page?
Santa has been a busy feller lately. My CNC went down a couple of weeks ago and that sat me back in the gift making I had planned. Yesterday and today things have picked up. The last two gift hit the dusty trail for Tulsa, OK. That turned out to be a non event. I sure thought the post office and UPS would have been packed, but it was just the opposite. No waiting lines at all. One git went prepaid to the post office so that was good. Today, I went to the UPS store, and there was a lady ready to help me. Just lucky, I guess. I have been making some hot pads for the gang. We have several Aggies in the family, so I am fixing them up. And then there are the Astros fans. And a couple of bottle openers for the older guys! Soaked them in mineral oil. And then there is the treat board for Santa. That is going to the grandkids to sit out for Santa. The weather is fixing to turn sour again so I am glad for this to just about be over.
With the holiday season coming up.... thought it would be a good time to start making some gifts.... This was a plan in that magazine that use to have a forum... I do a little bit each day and hopefully they'll be ready to go on time. Lets see your gift work....!!!
I have made a few Christmas gifts. The knitting needles are made of Oak and Yellow hart, with various wood tips. Nearly all are scraps. Each are a specific diameter to conform with the sizing required. The one with 2 points are used in sox. The one with the hook is a seam ripper.
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.
