John Moody posted a topic in General WoodworkingHere we are at the last of the Friday's in October, weather is still hot around here and the leaves have turned brown and falling off the trees. We are in an official drought now and early in the year it was raining everyday. Oh well you never know what you are going to get around here. This past week we finished up the Green Egg Tables and one Poplar table without the hole in it for a customer and got them delivered. We had so many little pieces of cut offs on the cedar that we decided to try to make something instead of cutting it up for kindling. So we can up with this idea to make come crates. Would be great for storage in the closet, at home, in the garage or shop. So this is the first one and we have enough to do quite a few more. I've got to trim the edges square since we were just playing with what we had. I also got six large end grain cutting boards glued up, cut, glued again and sanded yesterday. I really love my new 24" Grizzly dual drum sander. We got all six boards sanded flat on both sides in less than an hour. It sands at 100 and 150 grit on each pass. Today they will get a finish sanding and oil applied. I made a short run up to my sawyer yesterday to get some Maple and Red Elm he had cut for me. The Red Elm looks almost like Walnut to me, but has a grain closer to Oak. So I've got to get it off the trailer and sticker and stacked this weekend. What ever it is, I love the look of it. Won't be too much shop time this weekend as I am headed to a gun shop on Saturday. Who knows, we might not get a chance to attend them after a few weeks. Going to make the best of it while I can. So what about you all or y'all, what do you have on your agenda this weekend? We all here at TPW love to see your projects and what is going on in and around your shop. Share with us and post those project pictures so we can see what you are working on. Work safe and have a great weekend!
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.
