  3. Well I missed last Friday and have just gotten home from working then picking my wife up at her work and eating supper so I’m just now getting my Friday post done. Thanks for your patience with me. Wednesday I was invited to look at and see if I was interested in purchasing some lumber and turning blanks. A gentleman that used to stop by my booth at First Friday passed away two years ago. His wife is just starting to sell off his lumber and blanks. One of his favorite things was to turn rough bowls and then sell them so people could finish them after they had dried and stabilized. Wow there was a room full of bowls just waiting to be chucked and finished turning. I was like a kid turned loose in a candy store. Now I just got to narrow down my choices and see what I can acquire. I was so thankful to be asked to go through his work, lumber, blanks and a few tools. I’ll let you all know soon what I decide to purchase. Here are a couple of samples of what was there. I can hardly wait to get back over there. Today has been a long needed rain soaking here and more to come over night. Like a lot of places, we have been in a drought situation for a couple of months. Thanks for the rain. We are in cutting board mode at the time. Getting ready for one of our large shows and the last of the year. This is a three day show and they moved it up a couple of weeks earlier so we are going wide open making cutting boards and other items for inventory. We finished this batch on Wednesday. Yesterday I got a batch in the first glue up and today my son got them cut into strips. Before he had to pickup kids at school he was able to get a couple also glued in the final End Grain set. Last night I got most of these sanded and ready for engraving our logo on them. A few of them had some spots that we epoxied. Also got eight 6x6” Cheese Boards ready for engraving. And lastly before I came in last night I got 2 large size boards oiled and they will be ready to go in the storage box. Tomorrow will be finishing gluing and cutting and engraving and oiling boards. Whew I’m already tired. Sunday afternoon will be celebrating one of my granddaughters 14th birthday. Hard to believe she is 14. Been busy this school year, she made cheerleader for 8th grade. What’s on your weekend agenda? As always we really love seeing and hearing about all the projects you are working on. Share your weekend agenda with the rest of us.

  6. Finally some cool weather and some shop time this week. I have been working most of the week on the CNC machine, but I did get another set of cutting boards ready for the next glue up today. I found a guy that had a 3D set of grips available for download and they are very nice models. For the moment I’ve lost his name and link, but I’ll go back through my history and find it to give him credit. I cut one plain set from walnut to try them out and check sizing. I did have to open up the screw hole just a bit but it was close. The other sets ive made this week are still in the blank so I can flip them and made a cut on the back. Figured I’d run several sets before I flipped them so I could do them all at once. So so here is a set from Walnut with an American flag. I did the flag for this set. Bloodwood with checkering. Maple set with checkering. Two sets of Bloodwood with dots. Bloodwood with texturing. Here is a picture of them all. I’ve created several more options that I just need to run. Tomorrow I'm headed to Birmingham to shoot in an IDPA match with a friend. That’s pretty much my weekend. What’s on your agenda? Really love to see and hear about your projects and agenda. what ever you do, have fun and be safe.

  8. The heat is still with us here in Alabama and we are in a drought situation. Seems like in the spring it rained every day and we had record flooding. But it’s supposed to be cooling off here beginning this weekend and I must say I’m ready for some cool weather, but not yet ready for cold weather. This weekend I’ll be gluing these cutting boards in the end grain configuration. Starting to get get ready for our big end of the year Christmas show. Seems strange to say that with it being upper 90’s today. But it is that time. In the morning I’ll cut them into strips and glue them. I’m finishing this large thick Cherry Mantle. It has a bracket so that it looks to be a floating mantle. These work great as I used them before on some floating shelves. I routed the back so the bracket will be flush on the back and it has four rods that go about 6” into the mantle. I left it a little proud here so I can get it out. The bracket will get mounted to a 2x12 that is in the wall then the mantle will slide onto the rods. They are a tight fit but that’s what you want. Just need to do a bit more sanding and then spray a clear coat on. It’s supposed to have a somewhat rough look. Im also getting started making some 1911 grips this weekend on the CNC. Cut these this afternoon out of a nice small piece of walnut. Tomorrow my my son and his new wife are having a celebration of their marriage. They actually got married back in July while we were in the Mountains. Tomorrow we are having friends and family over to celebrate with them and to pray over their marriage and family. Then we’re having BBQ and fellowship. Thats my weekend agenda, what’s on yours? Share your woodworking and other plans and pictures with us. We love to see and hear all about your weekend plans. Whatever you do this weekend, have fun and be safe.

  11. Mr. Moody is busier than a one armed paper hanger and has asked to do his Friday post. It is crunch time in Indiana. I’m on the local election board and we have been prepping for the November elections. Plus, I’m building a shelved cabinet that has to be out the door by December 1st and I have a show to do on November 10. Busy, busy, busy. Today I’m rebuilding a door for the cabinet because I just didn’t like the way the other one looked. The customer wants inset doors to match an existing piece of furniture and that piece isn’t exactly high quality. It’s been a chore. So gang, what’s on Your Weekend Agenda?

My shop In my shop, not much in the way of projects but I am having fun collecting tools I'll need to round out my inventory of chair making implements and tools. One of the last tools I purchased from a seller on eBay is this wonderful frame saw with a couple blades. I was in search for a turning saw, they are a tad shorter than this saw, but this saw should do well for cutting radius's, it appears this specific frame saw was made as a turning saw considering the blade installed and the blades that come with it and the tiny set screw and post to hold the blade. It should be on my bench tonight when I come home from work, I can't wait! By the way, I stole this beaut for 75 bucks, I am very happy. So that's it in my shop, hope you all have a wonderful week ahead, and stay safe, and be well! Turning saw by S.

  13. Well it seems as if fall has arrived. Last week it was in the 90’s and this week we are in the low 70’s. I love the cooler weather and we are busy in the shop. Today we are working on making and 8’, 2” thick Cherry Cross. Working on the half lap joints right now. At the assembly table we are ready pieces for cutting boards. And of course we still have cornhole boards everywhere. Last week I build this display piece for the range to put AR rifles in a horizontal position. i used my CNC to cut the mortises for the upright pieces. Finished it and took it to the range. So lots going on here and we are readying for Christmas. Whats on on your weekend agenda? I always love love to see your projects and hear about what you are working on.

Image of the week It's not often (actually never have) featured one of my own images here in this section, but I thought I'd share a neat picture I took with just my cell phone. I recently purchased a Stanley No. 49 Auger Depth Stop, and I took a couple pictures of it in action, and one of them I thought was just really neat, very clear, with the background items blurred out a little to bring focus to the foreground. I was impressed with my Motorola cell phone camera, I have had this cell phone for about 4 years and I am just now learning about all the imaging capabilities it has. Thanks for viewing!

Featured image of the week A lathe for turning spirals, as commonly seen on table legs in the "Jacobean" or "Barley sugar" reproduction styles, particularly popular in the 1920s. Cutting is done by a small rotating cutter in a tilted head. As the work revolves slowly in the lathe, a leadscrew (as for a screwcutting lathe) or in this case a rack arrangement traverses the workpiece axially, beneath the fixed cutter.

Featured image of the week Source: http://thepatriotwoodwiki.org/Adze The traditional way to use an adze is to straddle the timber or log while holding the adze by its long handle and swing the adze up out in front and center to the users body, then swing the adze down to strike the timber or log. There are many ways to use a long handled adze and various stances or positions for the user to take as the work dictates. The foot adze is most commonly known as a shipbuilder’s or carpenter’s adze. They range in size from 00 to 5 being 3 1/4 to 4 3/4 pounds with the cutting edge 3 inches to 4 1/2 inches wide. On the modern steel adze the cutting edge may be flat for smoothing work to very rounded for hollowing work such as bowls, gutters and canoes. The shoulders or sides of an adze may be curved called a lipped adze, used for notching. The end away from the cutting edge is called the pole and can be of different shapes, generally flat or a pin pole.

  24. Good Morning All! What a glorious morning it is, and a wonderful Monday here on the west coast where temps feel more like fall, and I actually had to put a sweater on over the weekend! I love it. How have you been? What accomplishments can you brag about over the weekend? Anything is welcome here in this topic, woodworking, your team won over the weekend, a vacation you took? We are nosy, and we love pictures of your weekends. So feel free to drop us a note, and let us know how your weekend was, and what plans you may have for the week ahead, have a wonderful week Patriot Woodworker's! New feature for our community Please help us decide if we should keep the new "Forum Links" box above each forum category topic listing and posts listing. It's a quick way to get to another forum without having to back out of the current forum you are in. It is in Beta mode right now, testing and feeling if it's a good thing, or if too much is too much. Feel free to drop your feedback at Fast Jump. If we decide to keep it, we will remove the "Jump To" at the upper right area of our community. The quizzes are back! We asked Mr. Ralph Jones if he would come aboard and fire up his weekly woodworking quizzes, and he said he would! How cool is that? Since most of us are WOOD Forums leftovers, or migrators from back in the day (like myself) we are all familiar with Ralph's quizzes. Thank you Ralph for taking this job on, we appreciate you sir! Wounded warrior adopt a family project This year like last, we are embarking on a project to adopt our Wounded Warrior Family for Christmas. An organization we proudly support sponsors the Adopt a Family for Christmas project, and they reach out to us to provide a family of a Wounded Warrior the funds they need to have a Christmas. These families are in difficult times, and they need our help. We will fire this project up officially this week. There will be a raffle of some wonderful tools provided by our sponsors, and everyone is invited to participate, 100% of the proceeds will be sent to our adopted family. Follow this link to our Adopt a Family project from last year at Operation Ward 57 Adopt a Family so you can have an idea of how this works. (PLEASE CHECK BACK LATER THIS WEEK FOR DETAILS) Have a wonderful Monday folks, and keep up the great work, we are seeing some awesome work by you, and I'd like to personally thank you for helping us maintain such a warm and inviting community for all woodworkers, from all walks of life, without you, we could not be!
