  2. Today has been a long day, started at 4:30 am and lasted till 4:30 pm. Got up early today and hit the deer blind with my son. Had deer everywhere and unable to get a shot. We were bow hunting and just nothing in the right place with a good shot. I had to come in at 8:30 am to go to work at the range. Wow was it busy today. Lots of folks with family in and some came to shoot while others did Black Friday shopping. I got home and laid down to catch a nap and slept longer than I meant too. Oh well it was all good. So we had an awesome show last weekend to finish off the year. We took orders to personalize some of the cutting boards. I thought I would share a few of them with you. I did the engraving with the laser attachment for my Shark HD4 CNC. Its no a powerful laser but does a good job for things like this. So I got them all finished Wednesday so I could spend time with my family Thursday and then get in the short hunt this morning. Tomorrow I’m planning on finishing these natural edge shelves made from White Oak. Four shelves about an inch and three quarters thick, 30 inches long. Just a little more sanding on the edge and they get a clear finish. My wife and I are heading out for a little R&R to celebrate out 45th anniversary and a Christmas present for both of us. Just a little quite time. What’s on your agenda this weekend. I know leftovers are but what about your other plans. I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. I look forward to reading about your plan and projects and family time. Have a great weekend and whatever you do, have fun and be safe.

  4. So for the past three weeks or so we’ve been covered up working in the shop or at my part time job so I’ve been absent from the site. This weekend is one of our biggest shows and it started by setting up Wednesday evening and runs through Saturday evening. Today our hours are 9-9. just trying to have enough inventory has been a real push but we’ve gotten most of it done. I’ve made close to 100 boards in the past three weeks. We have a nice corner booth inside an atrium. Tickets to get in to shop are $10.00 so these are serious shoppers. I made some round boards with a small handle this year cutting them out on the CNC. and we tie an antique or vintage spreading knife to them. We made end grain boards in three sizes, large pictured above, medium and small. Small one on the left medium on the right. Above are cheese boards with the antique or vintage knife and we do a bread board with a small bowl for putting you dipping herbs in. Another look at some of the display. We also had our cornhole boards there and sold five sets yesterday. So I apologize for being absent lately but we have been busy and ready to wrap up this season. We’ll take a small break next week and then finish out the year filling Christmas orders. So what’s on your Patriot Woodworker agenda this weekend. Love to see you projects and hear about what your making in your shop. Have a great weekend and have fun and be safe.

  8. 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.

  11. 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?

Latest Wiki Entries Redwood Lie Nielsen No. 1 Lie Nielsen No. 6  Glossary of Woodworking Terms (Currently editable by the general public - no login necessary) Regarding the two entries for the Lie Nielsen hand planes, those are somewhat of a test. I created a Bench Plane entry easy to use form for our members to use. You will be able to activate the form and fill it in with simple to use easy steps, and click on "Save", and your hand plane page is created. You will be able to take images of your own hand planes in your shop, and add them to our wiki with factual data and information about your hand plane. Future forms will be created for all types of tools and machinery and other woodworking related data. Form screen shot below, the drop down menus have choices such as "Common Name", when the down arrow is clicked a drop down menu of choices - Smoothing - Jack - Fore - Jointer, are shown as a selection. Click on the "Save" button and a wiki page is automatically created with all the information you entered in this form. At this time, this form is for Bench Planes only, not specialty planes, there will be additional forms to cover the specialty classifications of hand planes.

  13. Good Monday Morning! Good Monday morning Patriot Woodworkers! What did you get done over the weekend, and what have you planned for the week ahead! Inquiring minds want to know. Please tell us what's happening in your shops, your life, and any events going on with you. Thank you for being here folks!  Latest Wiki Entries Glossary of Woodworking Hand Tools is being updated at light speed thanks to the great open source book Principles of Woodworking by Herman Hjorth. Also, the Glossary of Woodworking Hand Tools has made it into our main navigation tab under "Wiki" at the top nav bar of our community. Just hover your cursor over "Wiki" for the drop down. As you all know by now, the wiki page for Glossary of Woodworking Terms is open for editing. Just visit the page, do not log in, it's not necessary, and hover your cursor over the down carrot symbol and click on "Edit", the page will then open for edit. Once you complete your edit, you'll be asked for a short description of what you did, simply enter into the field short terms such as "edit text", "added chisel", "corrected spelling", then you'll fill in the simple captcha anti spam robot field and submit, and your edit is recorded! Editing our Wiki Folks may be apprehensive about editing our wiki, I must admit when you open the page for edit it looks a tad strange. Just use the examples that are already there and you'll be fine. At this point we are using "wiki syntax". Soon I will open up the wiki with a standard windows style editor, but for now I am hoping folks will give the "wiki syntax" a chance as it's much more reliable because it's all "plain text" entries. Not too mention once you get used to it, it's quite fast too, since you are relying on text to create fonts, and bold lettering and underlines, it's actually much faster than having to highlite your word, and click on a formatting button as you do here in this forum. Here are a few examples of plain text entries for our wiki, and what those entries generate. The "Desired Formatting" is what you would like to see in your text, the "Syntax" is what you type, the "Result" is what you'll see once the page is saved. The Golden Rules of Editing our Wiki Really there are only two Golden Rules in wiki'ing. Be Bold! Be bold in your editing, be bold in your page creation, be bold in accepting others editing of your own personal work, and be bold in referencing and checking the facts. Be Creative! Don't be shy, and don't let the standards of wiki'ng stop you from editing or creating. Wiki's rely on research and references, in order to create content that is factually based. Our wiki should not contain content based on personal opinions, nor biased writings, but the wiki should be a source that readers can count on for factual statements about any given subject. Enter your content, enter you knowledge openly and freely, don't worry about the reference or research details if you don't have them, we can always come back and edit in those details later, so edit without fear! Creating and editing a wiki should be fun, since you cannot really damage a wiki page you should not worry if you are going to make a mistake or erroneously delete something that cannot be retrieved. The reason is that all wiki pages have a history, a history of edits and changes that can be recalled and re-established as a page. So if you accidentally destroy a wiki page, no worries! We can simply revert the prior page back to its former glory. So, create, edit, and just have fun!

  14. 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.

  16. 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?

  18. Grand Prize We are proud to offer a Woodriver No. 63 Low Angle Jack Plane to this months "What's It" winner. This months "What's It" is sponsored by our supporter Woodcraft Supply. Originally advertised as a plane for heavy stock removal across the grain, the No. 62 has found a home as a smoother and is quite popular among collectors. The WoodRiver® No. 62 is faithful to the original design, but is almost a full pound heavier at approximately 4.6 lbs. It features a body cast from ductile iron, with a bed angle of 12°, a bubinga tote and front knob, and a high-carbon steel blade with a 25° bevel. The plane measures a little less than 14" in length x 2-7/16" in width and has a 2"-wide blade.

  21. Good Monday Morning! Good Monday Patriot Woodworkers! What did you get done over the weekend, and what have you planned for the week ahead! Inquiring minds want to know. Please tell us what's happening in your shops, your life, and any events going on with you. Thank you for being here folks! Personal update: I think I quite woodworking, seems I cannot get back in the shop these days, this is the longest dry spell I have ever had (no woodworking since August). Between home repairs for our VA refinance (done) and medical emergencies, and visiting loved ones in the hospital, and just a whole host of things that I cannot publicly display, I cannot get back to it! Alas, I do have faith! I was able to actually walk out to my shop and organize a tad. It's amazing when a garage/shop is not being used, how much crap builds up on top of woodworking surfaces! Thanks for reading my display of self pity. New members Please welcome the following members to our community. No new members to report on this past week.

  24. Good Monday Morning Patriot Woodworker's! I am sorry but this Good Morning is going to be short and sweet than our typical informational. But we can't miss a Monday period, because we want to know how your weekends went! So how about it folks? What did you do over the weekend!!!! What did you build, what didn't you build? It was long Thanksgiving weekend, I bet not much got done as most of us were enjoying friends, family, and just taking it easy. But if you were in the shop, let's hear it! And what do you have planned for the week ahead? Thanks for being here folks, we hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend and all is well.

  25. Veterans Day for Americans, and Remembrance Day for our Canadian and Commonwealth friends. In both of our countries they are recognized on the same day, and both days are just as important to each others nations. The Patriot Woodworker's would like to wish our Canadian and Commonwealth friends a memorable and thoughtful Remembrance Day this Friday, November 11th. For more information on Remembrance Day please see Remembrance Day Wikipedia. To our own veterans here in the U.S. The Patriot Woodworker's want to thank you for your service and sacrifices, many of you have returned home from conflict whole, and many of you have returned home wounded. And many of you served during peace time. We can never repay our veterans for their service to our nation and our people, we stand on the shoulders of our veterans and active duty as we go about our daily lives living free and taking for granted the security and protections our veterans and active duty have afforded us. Without our military, we would be a nation under attack constantly, it is because of our service members we sleep soundly at night, knowing that the life we went to bed with, will be the same life we awake with. That same certainty cannot be guaranteed to our active duty and veterans alike. The lives of our active duty change daily, and the lives of our veterans contain memories and nightmares of their service and constant reminders of their own sacrifices in the form of physical scars and PTSD. Please know you are not forgotten! Thank you Veterans! To our Patriot Woodworker's here today, many of you are veterans as well. Thank you for your service, in honor of your service to our nation and for our veterans as well from Canada, we ask that you reply to this topic by answering the following. What branch of service were you in? Where did you serve? What unit, group, were you in? What was your MOS or occupational military skill and job? What was the time frame of your service? Are you disabled as a result of your service? Also please feel free to honor friends and family who have served, are serving, or may no longer be among the living today. We'd love to hear your stories, memories, and your experiences. Thank you all, and thank you Veterans for your service!
