  1. To make those shallow rabbets, here is the tool you can make yourself.
  2. These are what I have come up with as a new project for the off center chuck. The colored rim platter is about 8 inches of pecan. Originally I tried to cut with point tool and burn the circles——not good. Tried several tools and found that my new Hunter Viceroy with a #1cutter works superbly with no tear out on cherry nor on pecan. Had to do something to highlight the cuts as they just did not stand out plain. Painted with acrylics then sanded the over painted area. Pecan one may get liming wax later, but for now has lacquer on rim and Watco on center. The painted areas were sealed with shellac. The cherry will get Watco over shellac.
  3. Have you ever completed a project and admired it, only to find a flaw that ONLY you can ever know about? If so, did you forget it or fix it?

  5. The cause As you know we had a wonderful project that spanned from the beginning of December to the end of the year of 2018 that involved the Bassett Family who was assigned to our community by Operation Ward 57. You can see the project at: The Patriot Woodworkers with Op Ward 57 Adopt a Wounded Warrior Family for the Holidays - 2018 The donation We have a woodworker and his wife, @honesttjohn and Mrs. Mordus who for the past two years have shipped us some wonderful gifts for the families we support through our annual Christmas project. I always enjoy what the Mordus's ship us for the intended family of honor. You can see the Mordus's efforts last year at this link: This year was no different. We were contacted by John and he asked, "What can we do". He laid out some suggestions and just like last year, he quickly jumped into action and produced some lovely gifts for the family, and the Mordus's also threw in some Amazon gift cards for the boys as well! I'd like to show off what Mr. and Mrs. Mordus sent for the family, just like last year when I opened up the box to inspect the items and to have our kids wrap them in Christmas paper for delivery, I was deeply touched by what was in the box. I am a huge fan of anything hand made, obviously, as we all are! And I am a huge admirer of hand made clothing and blankets and such, and again, Mrs. Mordus came through with a beautiful blanket made by her own hand for the family. The blanket work is fine and beautiful The Mordus gifts, the beautiful family blanket laying over a chair, with plaques for mom and dad made by John, and two boxes with gift cards for the boys. After reading the family introduction at our project page for the Bassett's, John Mordus was struck with the continued service that Mrs. Bassett performs around the community, and throughout our nation to better the challenging conditions that surround our disabled veterans. Mrs. Bassett is the Nevada State Fellow for the Elizabeth Dole Foundation, and she travels to Washington to advocate for our veterans. John made a very appropriate honor for her. John also read that Dad Bassett loves to work in his garage, specifically automotive mechanics. So John made up a fun dedication to Mr. Bassett's man cave. Our kids wrapped them up and sent them off to the Bassett's, just in time for Christmas. Christmas morning The Bassett's and the Mordus gifts Christmas morning, they all loved them @honesttjohn! Mr. Bassett and subject of honor for our Christmas Project with his sign, "Pop's Shop"! Look at that smile! From what I understand Mrs. Bassett loved her gift very much as well, but was probably a bit shy to be in the camera at that time of the morning, you all know how females get first thing in the morn! Mr. and Mrs. Mordus, thank you once again for your help in yet another year with our Adopt a Wounded Warrior Family for Christmas project. You truly do help make this event a special one, with the personal touch to the families. Now I know what is going to happen next, Honestjohn is going to send me a PM saying, "you really didn't have to make a big deal out of this", well, sorry John, yes I did! Thank you!
  6. When I saw this video, I couldn't believe the planning, precision work, effort and outcome. I can't imagine the amount of time it took to make this vessel.
  7. Going to try to get that 3 drawer dresser built...BEFORE July 18....Went and priced some lumber today. Not counting the plywood..right at $40 for the pine boards. Three 1 x 10 x 72, three 1 x 8 x 8' and eight 1 x 2 x 8' Pine boards....sides and top to be glued up panels, take doesn't take as long as a frame and panel build would. Webframes into sliding dovetails in the sides. Face frame on the front. may add a bit to the top panel... Now have a pair of Cut-resistant gloves...son brought home a pair from the glass factory he works at. Waiting on Uncle Sugar's Army to pay me my monthly allowance...then maybe a week to build? No pictures, just yet...that will start when the lumber gets here...stay tuned..

  9. This is an old blank that I had set aside a couple years ago waiting for it to dry out a bit, but then it got used as a doorstop. I finally brought it in Thursday and decided I needed to get it done. Because of the original shape and the cracks, I am probably going to have to make this one fairly shallow, and quite possibly a winged bowl. I have to fill some cracks before going much further though, I just hope it holds together. 😊 Wood type is unknown.
  10. Just got this one finished for our upcoming show this weekend. Cut from 1/4" Walnut, Cherry and Maple. Light kit from ScrollerOnline Lights Off - what ya see is what you get (maybe) Lights ON - surprise - the light kit has several different modes, battery operated and remote controlled (would be difficult to turn lights on and off with this hanging on a wall.
  11. I made a new miter sled for my table saw and it turned out good. When I was testing it, I used some old scraps from my last projects. I looked it over and thought, "thats beautiful wood, what can I make out of it." I laminated some of the Canary wood and added some other scraps, I think Bubinga. I sat it on the kitchen table and my daughter stopped by for a visit. Yep, you know what happened to it
  12. Sometime last summer, my son found and remembered a saying that he found. Told me it would make a great plaque. Being that he was a paratrooper and jumped into Panama and led the French on their "end run" into Iraq during Desert Storm, I had to do something special that was just for him. This plaque is the finished project. Oh, yeh, the jump wings - - before we did our 14,500 foot jump a couple af years ago, he placed a bag in my pocket and told me to give it back to him after we jumped. In the bag was his jump wings and his comment was "I jumped with these wings and now you have jumped with my wings. The patch on the plaque are those wings. Thought it would make it very special to the both of us. Anyhow, sorry for my ramblings, here's the picture. From flying, to jumping, to fighting on the ground. Got it all covered. Merry Christmas, son.
  13. I got this pattern from Sheila Landry and added my touch to it. The piece is cut from 3/4" Maple. I have also attached a document that I put together when researching the history of the amendment._The Second Amendment.docx

  15. The cause As you know we had a wonderful project that spanned from October to the end of the year of 2017 that involved the Gold Star widow and her two children as assigned to our community by Operation Ward 57. You can see the project at: The Patriot Woodworkers with Op Ward 57 Adopt a Gold Star Family for the Holidays - 2017 The donation During the project we witnessed many forms of heart felt giving, from the actual raffle ticket purchases, to the exchanging of the winnings from one member to another. Every step of the way, everyone who participated in this project performed heroically, I want to thank everyone once again for their giving, and participation in this very important annual tradition of ours. Thank you! Sometimes, things happen in these projects that are, well, just pretty danged cool, and one of those things was the shipment I received from Patriot Woodworker @honesttjohn. The shipment contained one blanket for each member of the Merlo Family. These blankets were hand made by Mrs. Mordus, (spouse of John Mordus aka honestjohn). John informed me the items were on their way, and I was expecting them, but what I was not expecting was the handwork that went into this operation. My own mother is a crocheter, I grew up with the craft, so I understand the time and heart that goes into this craft, the blankets of Mrs. Mordus were knitted. I am showing images of the work the night before we shipped the gifts from our home to the Merlo Family. I want to apologize for the image quality, it was late, the lights were dim in our home, shortly after I took these pictures our kids wrapped each blanket individually and put a name tag on the gifts before we put them in the shipping box for delivery the next day. This knitted blanket was made for Mrs. Merlo, the knitting is exquisite and detailed, can you imagine spending the time that it takes to make every single tiny square and creating those squares methodically around each heart. I had a chance to feel this blanket, it was very soft, and it had considerable heft to it as well, I was tempted to wrap myself in it but my heart said no, the first wrap should be performed by the honored recipient, Mrs. Merlo. Look at those tiny knitted stitches The hearts The following are images of the blankets Mrs. Mordus created for the children, Camilla and Charlie, the baseballs went to the boy, and the butterflies went to the girl. Mrs. Mordus crafted a border around the fleece fabric of both blankets. This is a style of making blankets that my own mother has been wanting to do for sometime now, mom was over at this time, and she closely examined the borders to see how Mrs. Mordus fabricated them. I wish I had taken close up images of the borders, I don't know why I did not. At this writing I am right now kicking myself. Camilla's flutterby blanket Charlie is a baseball fanatic! And of course, do you think @honesttjohn could let that box of blankets ship without something from the shop! John installed a completely wonderful keepsake box for Mrs. Merlo that he created. This was unexpected, a beautiful touch to an already incredible shipment for the Merlo Family. I am not sure what the box was made from, it may have been John's trademark Pine that he uses in many of his plaque projects, hopefully John will chime in here and let us know. And the grand finale, the Merlo kids with their warm blankets on Christmas morning. You can tell they are very happy. We do not have an image of Mrs. Merlo with her blanket, it was not provided, but I can surmise why we do not have that image, well you know how ladies are, early in the morning, just out of the rack, hair not straight yet, I am sure the image is out there, but Mrs. Merlo surely wasn't going to let that one get out! Without further adieu, the kids Charlie and Camilla and their cherished blankets. (these images shown here, with permission given by mom Merlo) Little Camilla showing off mama's blanket In closing Again, I want to thank everyone who was involved in this project, it was a huge success this year thanks to you all. And on behalf of our entire Patriot Woodworker community, Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Mordus for this very special gift, that will keep on giving to this family for years to come, as they curl up during cold season with these blankets. This topic is long over due, and I want to also apologize to @honesttjohn for taking so long to get this up and live, thanks for your patience John.
  16. These are the completed projects of the 7-year-old who I am teaching.
  17. My scroll saw has a clearance of 20" and this pattern is 25" long. Wasn't easy and no I didn't use a spiral blade. Now I got to make the one on the right look like the one on the left.. This might take a few days, weeks or maybe months. Oh by the way, wife does not have any real bad stuff , which we thought she might have, but the MRI showed 2 busted disk, the third and the forth, what ever that means!! So I went back to work in the shop for a few days. The next appointment for her is the 25th. Maybe operation or a few guided shots with the camera. Amazing what they have learned. Oh, I have already changed some of the stuff from the picture. It looks like there were two pieces missing so I just guessed..That's good about carving pieces for no one can say that ain't right? Hey we even celebrated the better news we got from the doctor by stopping at Dairy Queen on the way home!
  18. I saw Chad Stanton do a video on LFL and got my interest up. I live on a country road with not a lot of traffic but am considering making one for the church parking lot (on a more traveled country road as it's 1/2 mile from an interstate exit). I'd probably make it a miniature version of the church building (the front part). I have some stained glass that I could use for the Gothic windows. Comments, ideas?
  19. Other than working on a large theater set (I'll get photos of it before this weekend's performance), here's a couple of things I've been working on. First is the little free library, which I plan to start painting tomorrow, while waiting for some roofing screws. Second are some 4x8x7 storage shelves for the furniture bank.
  20. This one may present more of a assembly issues than the actual cutting. It basically nothing more as another bookshelf, but it is 92 inches tall, 52 inches wide and 12 inches deep. From front of my table saw and my workbench which serves as both the out feed table and assembly table is 9 ft. 6 inches long. But only 40 inches wide. I would prefer to assemble it in one piece. But think I'm going to have to assemble it in three sections. Anyone have a better idea on this?
  21. Pretty cool stuff. Crude but effective. Bare footed, no blade guards, no dust collection, wooden fence on saws, tools on the floor...and the list goes on and on. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFLWrV3WyVk
  22. I actually need to make 20 of these but will do 5 each week until I get them finished. I simply don't have room to store enough lumber, to clamp them all, and to finish them to do all at the same time. The finished size will be 28" x 17" so they're basically like an end table top. They'll get a Roman Ogee edge treatment and finished in clear gloss Nitrocellulose lacquer. There will be channels screwed to the front side so engraved name plates can be interchanged. The good part of that is if there's a slight blemish with a knot hole or crack it won't show so I won't have to spend much time fixing those. The bad thing is that this beautiful Walnut will be mostly covered with plastic name plates. Anyway, this isn't any special technique or job, just gluing up boards and then trimming to size and spraying finish on. But, all 5 are glued up, I'm waiting on my wife to get home, I have supper warming, and there's not a lot I can do right now in the shop so I figured I'd post some photos. Cut to length and width, still in the rough - Surfaced (I really wish I had an 18" or 20" helical head planer! - this takes a while with a lunchbox planer) - Gluing - All 5 glued and drying - Enjoy! David
  23. Trying to see what I have left over, and see what sort of project I could cobble up Might have a plank left, besides these in Poplar.... Almost all of the Cherry in the shop....some rather fancy stuff... Flame Cherry? I may have a little more upstairs, but this is about it, for the Maple..some Curly, some not.. There IS a 1 x 4 x 7' slab upstairs, and this little stack of Black Walnut. Also has a few fancy spots.. Might find some use for this? Then there is the pile of "other stuff" Not sure what all is in there....at least it isn't moving on it's own.... Going to get the Single Brain Cell Sketch Up working this week, and see what it can come up with....
  24. Plank that is 4/4 x 13" x 49" ? Maybe a Five Drawer Chest of Drawers? Two of the "five" would be half width drawers at the top. Frame and panel sides....raised panels. I have a decent supply of 4/4 Maple I cut rip to make the four posts....have a supply of 3/4" for the panels and drawer fronts...plenty ( I hope ) of thinner Poplar for drawer sides. May buy a sheet of 1/4" plywood for the bottoms of the drawers....and the back of the case.. May add some of the Black Walnut as edging for the top? maybe use it as the "dividers" between the drawers? 7 bf should be enough? Primary wood will be that Curly Maple I have just sitting around.... Moral of this post? Painkiller induced naps produce some wild dreams... As soon as I can draw again with this bad thumb. I may do a few drawings to work from...IF anyone wants to see them..
  25. We have a travel trailer (19') that has one of those dinette tables that folds down to form a bed. Well, the mfr made the table just a bit undersized (or the seats a bit too far apart). and it only took a couple of times of sitting on the bed when the table was not perfectly set to mung up the edges of the particle board with laminate top. So I make one a bit closer to the right size. Got some cherry plywood at a local lumberyard (first time there, nice place on a farm (sheep and a pony shared one of the buildings). The big challenge was the edging. I didn't have any T-molding that would work, and I wanted something a bit nicer. Decided not to use laminate (e.g., Formica). So I settled on some shop-cut veneer. Decided needed 1/16" to make the 4 curved corners, and then double them up to make a 1/8" edge band. Table is about 27" x 35" So I worked my way around the top, using two pieces. I don't have 16 Bandy Clamps, so Improvise. Straight edges get clamped with a caul, the bends get stretchy packing tape to pull them tight and into position. Add clamps as I went. Had dinner while first round set up. Second round offsetting the joints after dinner. Spare the clamps, spoil the job. Hope it works. Green tape is masking tape to keep from glue splotching. If all goes well, I'll trim the edges, sand all over and put on a coat of BLO Sunday.
