I had live music in my shop this past Saturday! Our youngest daughter was studying on the dining room table for her AP History exam, our oldest daughter wanted to practice at the same time, scholastic's take priority over all in our home, even over good music, so our oldest girl needed a place with her friend to practice for an open mic event that same night at a local music store that holds open sessions on Saturdays. They asked if they could come out and practice while I work. I turned off my radio and opted for live. Hey, free live music while I work! What more can ya ask for! Typically I don't like things on my table saw, I'll make an exception, this time. This a just a warm up they were doing to have fun. Cynthia is our oldest daughter, on violin, and her "boyfriend" is on geeetar. He's an ok kid, took me a loooong time to accept it, but he's alright. Her first, they been seeing each other since their Jr. year in high-school and they are equally yoked. They are both wrapping up their freshman year in college. Good kids. She plays in her college symphony, quartet, and symphony choir, she is well studied in classical, but her favorite to play all day long, is Appalachia.
I was looking at the pictures submitted of guys shops. Each is unique and tailored to each person. However, I am wondering what your shop has in it for music or entertainment as you work. I like the older music. I use an old iPad to listen to web music radio stations. What do you have? Anyone have a TV? Do you have a napping chair? I do. It didn't start out that way. My wife got a free chair, a leather desk, but she didn't like it. I kept it in my shop till we could get rid of it. However, once I sat down in it, it cuddled me like a bear and put me to sleep. Now it is my permanent companion
John Morris posted a topic in The Patriot's PulseI am curious, do we have any instrument makers here? We are trying to see if there may be a need for an image gallery for musical instruments. Thanks for any feedback!
Once again Craft in America knocked it out the park again with their Music episode. We just love watching these episodes, I love our American culture, and the Craft in America producers really know how to showcase our talents, crafts, and way of life in these Craft in America episodes, for my woodworking friends, this episode highlights some great woodworking, you can watch it here at http://www.craftinamerica.org/episodes/music/ or, if I can get the video to work you can watch it here:
Sitting here on teh PC and waking up, and in the background on CBS This Morning, they are playing "The New Basement Tapes" and it's very nice, I was never really interested in the original Basement Tapes by Bob Dylan, but The New Basement Tapes are really cool. If you are familiar with "The Band's Last Waltz" (probably my all time favorite, if I was stuck on a deserted island and had one album to choose from, it'd be the The Band Last Waltz) the New Basement Tapes are formatted similarily to The Last Waltz. The New Basement Tapes are made up of great talent, big names, small names, and with an independent music feel to it. In a nutshell the New Basement Tapes are perforuming Bob Dylans lyrics with an independent modern American Folk feel to it. My favorite is Rhianna Giddens and banjo. Great stuff!

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.
