Well, my last pair of leather work gloves just went back to Lowes. Had not even had them two weeks and they had holes and ripped seams. These were the Blue Hawk variety, with some type of fabric mesh on the top of the gloves. Too bad, they were the most comfortable gloves I have had in quite awhile. I am not doing anything out of the ordinary (I don't think). I do have a stack of rough cut lumber that I occasionally mill a piece or two from. I am doing some home remodeling, so I am wearing them probably several hours a day. I used to get about six months from a set of leather gloves. Lately it seems like I am buying a set every month or so. Anyone have recommendations for a good set of comfortable work gloves? Cal Here is a pic of the Blue Hawks. Wish I had taken a pic of them before I returned them.
I had this gentleman come to me and ask that I build him a couple of Shadow Boxes to display his Dad's old baseball gloves. A fielder glove And Catchers mitt. He was in no hurry and I have had a shop full of projects so I have worked on these off and on. I would set them aside and they would get covered up and not worked on. Last week I decided it was time to get them out and gone so I didn't have to move them anymore and damage them. Here are the frames I kept moving around. So I got the bottom in, glass cut and installed and the hinges and lock on. They are made from Red Oak with a General Finishes Mahogany Gel stain. They were then sprayed with four coats of General Finishes Enduro Var. They can either be display down or mounted on the wall. I am not sure what he is gong to put on the inside but I left the back the light color maple since the gloves were a dark brown to give some contrast and help them to stand out. One more project down and delivered.
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.
