  1. I love our community of woodworkers and veterans advocates. You guys are the greatest, awesomest, most classy, knowledgeable, friendly, compassionate, passionate, skilled artisans, and craftsmen and the most hospitable group of woodworkers I have had the pleasure knowing, ever since I been involved in woodworking forums, from years ago, thanks all for being here!
  2. This was fun, we made this video back in spring of 2013. We were only 3 years old back then. We began this grand adventure back in spring of 2010. I feel blessed to be a part of this community. Just thought in case ya'll missed it, here is our Birthday Video.
  3. This has been one of those weeks that I have been busy as can be and don't feel like I accomplished much. I have about four projects in various stages and none of them completely finished. Oh well, I at least know that I have something to do each day. I have a batch of Pizza Peels that are in the process, but not finished right now. I am still sanding on the Walnut Vanity top and Kitchen shelf. The Oak cabinet doors were waiting on the cutting boards to come out of the finishing room. I did get a batch of ten cutting boards finished. Five medium size and five small size
  4. I got the tops cut off the shadow boxes and at the glass dealer to install the glass in each top. Should get them back this afternoon and finish them up this weekend and ship them out Monday. Tonight I have a show to do and it will be outside. It has been in the 80's all week and today it is in the upper 50's and should be around the lower 50's by the end of the show. I guess we will run the heater and takes jackets tonight. I am hoping to actually get a little yard work done this weekend along with some shop time. Several projects to work on but right now, not sure whi
  5. As I stated earlier in a post it has been a busy week and that is good. Yesterday was three months since my knee replacement and I am amazed at how well it has done. I am pretty much doing anything I want now and don't think about the knee too much. So with that said, I am way behind on projects in the shop and show season has started so now it is projects for people that come by and inventory for shows. We did two back to back the past two Fridays and sold out of cutting boards so I am pushing to get them made. I usually make six or seven at a time and this batch was six large siz
  6. This has been the first week I actually started back to doing woodworking in the shop. Still keeping my time to half days but starting to get some work done. This is week I cut out, jointed and planed pieces for six cutting boards. It was nice being back at the table saw and working through the process. Thursday I got them glued into the long strips to make end grain boards. The best part of the week was finally getting the roof on the shop shingled. My neighbors son does roofing and I hired him to do the roof for me since it wil
  7. Well I have had a pretty good week and only spent half days in the shop. I went in then and rested and iced the knee down and all has been good. It has been nice to be actually back to doing a little work and not just spending the day sitting around with my leg propped up. I finished the Lego table and it was picked up yesterday and is headed to Pensacola, Florida. It has four of the Lego bases epoxied to the top and they wanted the legs so they could be removed so they are screwed into brackets on the bottom. Today I spent the day
  8. So here we are just past Ground Hog's day and I'm not sure what it was like in your area, but here there were no shadows to be seen, it was raining. Six more weeks or winter, who knows, it is cold here today, but just like always, it is suppose to be in the 60's tomorrow. I finished my therapy on the knee replacement on Wednesday and they said all is good. Of course he also said, "John, you didn't have a tooth pulled, this is major surgery, take it slow." So that is what I am trying to do spend a few hours in the morning doing what I can and then resting. I was trying to go at it p
  9. Here we are in the dead of winter and it is cold outside. They just got my gas line run back to the shop the day before my knee surgery and so I am using electric oil heaters in the shop and they just don't do what the gas heat did. I've got to get on that and get some real heat back in the shop before it is AC time! But at this time all I am really doing is some tool maintenance and straighten the place up a bit. Why is it that every flat surface will become completely covered with stuff and you can't see the surface? Well I have found the surface on part of my back bench, but not
  10. A vast variety of weather spreads across the country today. Here it only takes a frost to close schools. With a winter weather advisory and a possible .5 to 1" schools announced yesterday they would close today. So a light dusting happened this morning and this has been about it for us. My granddaughter came in and said, "I thought they said an inch of snow, that doesn't even cover the grass." Well that's how it goes around here. It did keep me in and no therapy today so I didn't slip and fall going across the deck and down the steps to get out. So I'm still in the house and
  11. I've been a little under the weather this past few weeks and I believe i'm finally getting over some of it and getting back around. I had a mean upper respiratory infection and had to get over it as I am having my left knee replaced. All the meds sorta put me down for a few weeks and I didn't have much energy. So anyway, I'm getting a new knee for Christmas as I will go into the hospital on December 23. You won't get a Friday post from me next week. I have been trying this week to finish as much as I can for Christmas and get it out before I am down for a few weeks.
  12. Welcome to Friday and another wonderful weekend. I love this time of year but I am waiting on the utility department to get my gas line moved so I can get heat back in my shop. So far it hasn't been a problem, but we are expecting a cold front this weekend and temps down around freezing. That's going to hurt since it was 81 yesterday and set a new record high. Oh well it is what it is. This week I made a couple of Cedar Crates out of cut off pieces from Egg Tables. I got these put together and made them stackable. I posted these on Faceboo
  13. Here we are the end of September and fall weather starting to move in. A great time to get into the shop. I like one more coat of paint on the walls in the finishing room and it will be ready for use. Last night I got my turning wood shelf cleared and moved into the wood storage room. Now I've got to get all of this back on the shelf. Hard to believe all of that came off these shelf. Also so got the Dust Collector moved into the storage room along with the air compressor. Wow did that cut down
  14. Happy Veteran's Day to you all and thank those of you that served for your service. A "Thank You" seems so inadequate for the sacrifice you made. We all enjoy many freedoms and at times take them for granted and for always realize what you gave up for us. So Thank You, Thank You Thank You, Thank You!!!! Today has been a busy day around our house. My daughter and grandchildren came in yesterday and are spending the weekend with us. My six year old grandson was a huge helper today in the shop. We were planning down some Cedar for a customer. They wanted 1/2" cedar with on
  15. Today is one of the first real hints fall is in the air around here. A cool front came through last night and today we are in the mid 70's and expected to be mid 40's tonight. I'll be doing an outdoor show tonight so it should be really nice weather. I made a batch of Edge Grain Cutting boards and a batch of End Grain cutting boards this week. Finished branding them this morning. I also milled up some oak for rails and stiles for 16 cabinet doors I've got to make. Cut them to rough size and milled them, not got to cut them down and start making mortise and tenons
  16. Here 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.
  17. Today I finished the Walnut Bench and got it delivered. When it is delivered to me that is when it is finished. So it now has four coats of Zinger Seal Coat De-Waxed Shellac and then four Coats of General Finishes Endure-Var Satin finish. No stain, just letting the Walnut stand out. The top is divided into three sections and the middle section has a couple of pieces of Walnut Burl I had. So today I got it delivered and put into to place below a window in a room with a Pool
  18. A busy week in the shop which was a nice change. Got a lot of work done and still a lot to work on. I got the moulding cut and installed on the Poplar plant stand for the customer and they approved this is what they wanted. So now for a final sanding and then Ebony Stain. More pictures as it gets closer to finish. Also got the Poplar frames cut out for the screen door and ready to cut mortise and tenons on them. I got started and have part of them cut but had to pull of to work on another order. Also got the Walnut Bistro table top cut to
  19. Getting a little rain here today, first time in almost a month. It has gotten dry and dusty and this little bit is a welcomed relief. It has gotten so dry the leaves are just turning loose and falling off the trees and no color change. Still putting the shop back together and getting close. Moved my Barnes foot powered mortiser out and blew the dust off. One day I hope to get it out and clean it and restore it, but I kinda like the used look. Anyway it is going into the corner of my office. Got some of my planes out of the boxes they were put in
  20. I took my wife to work today and it is her birthday, they had her office all decorated when she got there. We have a First Friday show todo tonight, so we went out and had dinner last night to celebrate. I have been working as much as possible on getting things moved around in the shop and hopefully back to some kind of order soon. Just a week or so ago, Ron can attest, there was lumber piled up in the floor next to the table saw and you could hardly move through this section. So I have managed to clear out all of this and get it stored on the lu
  21. Wow can you believe that Fall is officially here and it is still in the 90's here. Oh well, it won't be long to the cooler air arrives and the weather gets cold. Thankfully while my good friend Ron was here we got all the insulation up and all the full sheets up plywood so all I have now to do is the small stuff. What a great time we had and I am so thankful for he and Dorothy coming down to help me out. Believe it or not, he even left some M&M's. So the last thing we did was clean out the Finishing room and Storage room. We got the door ins
  22. What y'all got going on this weekend? I'll be correcting a few screw ups in the shop from last week. I'd elaborate but, don't want to talk about it. But, don't let my reticence hold you back. Tell us what's hopping at your places.
  23. Is it just me or do the weeks just seem to be flying by? Here we are at another Friday and official Fall is just a few days away. You wouldn't know it here, it is still in the 90's each day, but we have had a break in the humidity this week. I've been working inside the shop most of the week. I have all the insulation up in my office room and all the wall plugs wired. About ready to start with putting up wall covering in that room. Yesterday I got all the plug boxes in and wire run to the plugs in the finishing room and all the insulation up. And
  24. Wow, can you believe it is already September and where has this year gone? Here we are at a long weekend, they all seem the same to me now, so I'm excited to hear what you all will be doing. It actually felt a little like fall here this morning getting down into the 60's and the humidity is low. I walked outside and didn't sweat! Well I spent yesterday working inside the shop expansion since I not have power on that side and air conditioning. So first I got an outlet in the middle room to move my Air Compressor over into it and out of the shop. I am going to run piping in the shop
  25. As i have posted in the "Show us your Shop' forum most of the week has been spent on the shop expansion and not in the shop. I got busy today and got the outside of the shop expansion painted. I got a call this afternoon and my doors have finally arrived so this weekend we will get the windows and doors installed and hopefully the facia board and the eve's closed in. So that is my weekend plans, what is on your Patriot Woodworker agenda? We here at TPW love to see all of the wonderful projects you are working on and your weekend plans. I know I am a little
