  1. Last Saturday we did a show near here. The weather was perfect and ladies came ready to buy. We also took orders for a specialty cutting board, a walnut tray, a cremains box (a dog), a very large waffle trivet and a small cabinet. Needless to say, it’s bee busy this week. Unfortunately, I have to be a pallbearer for a friend today but we’re going junkin’ tomorrow.’ So, whats on your weekend agenda?

  3. Well it’s been a crazy couple of weeks. I started coughing a couple of weeks back and thought it to just be allergies at first then it kept on so I thought it was a cold and I went to the doc-n-a box and was told I had a sinus infection. Well two days later and a lot more coughing and I had an appointment with my regular Dr for a regular checkup. He walks in and hears me coughing and says I have Whooping cough. He said his wife had it and he had been listening to that cough for weeks. So he puts me on more meds and some strong cough syrup and I was either coughing or sleeping. Anyway I seem to be much better, only an occasional cough not the long multiple cough. So I got out in the shop last night and finished up a couple of things that have been waiting on me. I did this shadow box for a friend who wants to display an antique Winchester. He’s also a Florida Gator fan so he wanted the background to be blue. I couldn’t find Florida Blue so this is as close as it gets. No door and the hooks just came in today so I’ll get them installed tomorrow. It just an open shadow box. This weekend they are having Dragon boat races here in town. Teams have been arriving since the middle of the week. I had a team at the shooting range today just having some fun and waiting for the competition to began. So I was ask to take the Dragon and make a base for it, just keep it simple. So so I had this nice piece of Quartersawn White Oak that I thought would look really nice. The rays in the Oak almost looked like waves in the water. Just sprayed a clear finish and sealed the bark with some Acrylic. I thought it looked good and I kept it simple. Tomorrow I have a digital duplicator coming for my CNC. Going to spend some time with it and try to get some cutting boards cut out. What’s on your agenda this weekend. I love to hear about and see all you weekend projects.

Featured Image Schmahmann’s Bureau of Bureaucracy re-interprets the sixteenth-century European “cabinet of curiosities,” used to house wondrous, exotic objects. Instead of rare stones and fossils, this cabinet holds certificates, diplomas, licenses, medical reports, and financial statements, bureaucratic documents that reflect and define our lives in contemporary society. Behind the functional exterior of this piece lies a surreal array of inverted perspectives, false drawers, and hidden compartments—the artist’s subtle commentary on the true nature of bureaucracies.

  10. 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! This past weekend I focused on my new addition to my shop, this fabulous workbench, oak base, with oak cabinets and walnut drawer pulls, with a 4" thick top made of Maple and Oak. It has an end vise that is very powerful. The top mounted vise is a really cool one too, it's an old Columbian, but I'll move it to another location in the shop. If anyone has been following my good fortune, I was contacted by some life long friends awhile back, and informed that their neighbor was looking for a recipient of her deceased husbands woodworking shop, he was a WWII and Korean War Navy Veteran, a very accomplished woodworker among other trades, a high school shop teacher since he came out of service for our nation, his name was Jim Eckler. Our friends recommended myself as the recipient, and here I am now. I sincerely believe it was Providence, that I have received this gift of a bench and many hand tools, as in my own life, I was ready to move to mainly a hand tool shop and downsize significantly, I was hesitating for awhile, then this happened, and this event touched me off to make the move. Over the past few weeks I have sold off all of my machinery but for one lunchbox planer, and I purchased a Shopsmith with a portion of the proceeds of my big sale, for the moments I really need power, and tucked it in a nice compact corner of our garage. This bench, will be the mainstay of my work space, I really love it, it's at least 40 or so years old, and it has a ton of character. The holdfasts I purchased off a young man from Ebay, he hand forges these holdfasts and they work very well, if you are in interested in the holdfasts let me know, I'll give you the contact information. I can't wait to get to work on my bench, and honor it appropriately. Raffle Winners Congratulations to the following winners of our annual community fundraiser!

  11. Tables have been the order of business this week. We were sent a picture to build a base for a table. They already had a top they wanted to use so we got it going. Yesterday we got all the little accent pieces put on and now it is in the finishing room. it is is going to be painted and they are dropping the paint by so we can start today. Since it was being painted we used up some small pieces of wood laying around to do all the accents. While that one was being put together we started on a large Maple table top and 2” tubing base. The top was to be 48”x60”x2”. Had to do it in a couple of glue ups to keep flat and ensure good joints. After we made the last glue up to be just over 48” wide we sent a picture to the customer and they quickly decided it was too big for the room so we will be cutting it down. The Base is 2” square tubing so the shop turned to welding. Both my sons are certified welders so I left it up to them. The base is now together and the end pieces for a bench that will go with the table. A little more grinding and sanding and a primer will get sprayed this weekend and then it will be sprayed Black. The frame and bench ends will get levers drilled and inserted to protect floors. We are hopful of finishing all this over the weekend but you just never know. Saturday I’m shooting in a GSSF competition. So that’s our agenda, what’s on your agenda this weekend? share your projected and pictures as we all here at TPW love to see everything you are working on. For those in the path of Florence, we hope and pray you are safe. Whatever your plans this weekend, have fun and be safe.
  12. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the folks living in the path of hurricane Florence. Stay safe and follow the advice of the officials. We need you back here. PATRIOT TURNERS!!!!!! I have had a request from @Jim from Easy Wood Tools . Our most generous sponsor, Easy Wood Tools, places a Christmas tree in their office lobby. It gets decorated with turned ornaments from their turning friends. Jim asked if the Patriot Turners could create some ornaments to help in filling up the tree. These do not need to be fancy or exotic woods. The ornaments will be painted/finished by young ladies who have volunteered to help. Snowmen/ladies, tiny Christmas trees, birds, baubles, whatever comes to mind. Your ornaments will be in good company with others from turners all over. I'm in for this and I hope you will be, too. You can send your ornaments to: Jim Luley Easy Wood Tools 1365 Cahill Drive Lexington, KY 40504 If you have any questions, let me know! Let's cover that tree!! Our Patriot Turners- @Ron Altier created another beautiful ornament from colored plywood. Ron explains his process in this thread- From The Internet- Mike Peace has been posting a few short videos primarily aimed at helping the newer wood turner. One recently was on the use of dividers when turning. I found two interesting videos on bowl turning. Not so much on how to turn them but more about the end results. Most of us have been indoctrinated into the idea that the bowl blank must be dry- either at the start of the turning or at least at the time the bowl will be finished. Mike Peace demonstrates the beauty of allowing mother nature to have a hand in the process by turning a bowl start to finish with green wood. As the bowl eventually dries it will warp into shapes we can embrace. Another idea on bowl finishing is by Rick Turns. Rick uses gilding to enhance a design. As he works, Rick shows us some of the things that can go wrong. Now just for the sheer enjoyment of seeing something turned that you would probably never expect- Everything Else- In keeping with the bowl theme that we have going, I did get to finish a little flame box elder bowl I started a while back. The bowl was turned rough and then I needed to start a different project so I painted on a layer of old TiteBond II. The blank didn't warp or crack. I think the TiteBond II sealing is the way to go. The little bowl still needs a protective finish. It's about 6 inches in diameter and about 2 inches tall. Safe turning

  15. Typically our Monday morning topic is filled with questions on what we all did over the weekend, what we have planned for the week ahead, and we will welcome our new members and share stories. But I woke up to come on here before I head off to work for the day, and upon turning on the morning news, I learned about the mass shooting in Las Vegas. So I am here writing now, and I cannot find the heart nor the words to start off our typical Monday Morning topic with words of cheer and happiness. But, that does not mean you cannot participate in this topic, to let us know what you did over the weekend, and what you have planned for the week ahead. Actually, I hope you do, perhaps I can turn to our membership for some cheer and uplifting remarks in this time of darkness for our nation. I am saddened, and hurt. The sounds of the gunfire coming from the building above the concert crowd, will forever be in my mind, knowing that the bullets were striking innocents below. So I'll turn this topic over to you my friends, and I'll head off to work in a few minutes, just like any "normal day", meanwhile the lives of many have been changed forever in our nation, as a result of the largest mass shooting in our nations history. May God shine His grace on all those affected by this tragic event and may He take those who's lives have ended, into His arms.

What's It Our September "What's It" will be cancelled due to MWTCA's issues with their own website. They are working feverishly to get their site back in full working order so we can extract some of their What's It images for your viewing pleasure. Featured image of the week.

  18. Good Monday Morning Patriot Woodworker's! And what a grand Monday it is! With Fall in full effect, the leaves are beginning to turn, and we are on our way to the Holidays soon enough! As we ask you each Monday morning, what is on your plate for the week ahead? What did you accomplish over the weekend? Inquiring minds want to know! I was able to get a little more work down this weekend on the headrest of a Claro Walnut Rocker I am building. Soon this chair will be finished and ready to go to a new home. For a look at my headrest fabrication please see at Head Rest Fabrication. I tried to get started on a Krenov style hand plane build this weekend but it just did not happen, other things happened! New Community Features The double posting issues have been worked out, in the past contributors would hit the post button, and sometimes double posts would show up, that is no longer an issue. Bug fixed! We now have a "Cancel" button at the editor, so if you change your mind and do not want to submit that post, just click on "Cancel" and you're set to go. The navigation is much easier to use now, the tabs at the top are now out front and center, allowing you to see the various navigation tabs instead of them being buried under other tabs. If you change your password you will now be presented with an email verification to ensure you were actually the one who changed your password. Before no verification went out. We keep adding to our community, and we hope you enjoy our new upgrades and features. Thanks for all your help to everyone, for your contributions, your creative projects, your participation here, and all your wonderful personalities! Have a wonderful week ahead!

  20. Good Monday Morning Patriot Woodworker's! What did you do over the weekend, and what projects do you have lined up for the week ahead? Well here we are, embarking on yet another grand week of life as we head into one of my favorite times of the year, Fall! I know some of our woodworkers in the Mid-West and East-Coast may be starting to prepare for Fall and Winter. Since I live in Southern CA, there really isn't anything we do on a traditional basis to prepare for the Winter months, most of us West Coast folks rejoice at the chance of rain! So, we have just fired up our brand new Home Improvement along with the Patio and Outdoors forums for our members to show off their home improvement and outdoors projects, feel free to drop in and show us what your up to, we know many of you must be doing something to get prepped for the cold season ahead. Here are some ideas that you could discuss at the Home Improvement forums, since Fall is ready to fall upon us. Weatherizing your windows for the cold and wet season ahead, what did you use? Installing leaf guards on your gutters, which system works? Repairing your roof or simply sliding that one shingle back in place, what did you use for the adhesive? Installing the bottom seal of your exterior entrance door, how'd ya do it? Splitting logs for the long winter ahead, what kind of splitter do you own and would you recommend it to others? There are many small items we do on a yearly basis that we take for granted, that would actually make a great Home Improvement topic. So feel free to head on into our new HI Forums and share your pre-Fall and pre-Winter projects with us! Latest Quick Tutorials (How do you do x and y?) How to Post YouTube Videos Hand Plane in Upper Left Corner Viewing Recent Forum Images Latest Suggestions (Suggestions submitted by members) Acronym Expansion Edit Time Page and Post Navigation Test Sandbox That's it for now Patriot Woodworker's, thank you all for being here, and before we leave for our day jobs, we gotta ask one more time, What did you do over the weekend, and what projects do you have lined up for the week ahead!

Permission was granted by the new Workbench Publication for The Patriot Woodworker community to copy and use the old Workbench Magazine at our pleasure, and for free distribution and re-use. This is a wonderful project, from one of my favorite time periods, Colonial America. Just imagine making this project from maple, or better yet, curly maple and giving it a dark deep antique stain. As is with all these Workbench Magazine plans, they are more of a schematic than they are plans, giving you dimensions and scaled grids for your own templates.

  23. View File Workbench Magazine September-October 1965 Cowboy Bookends This is a scanned document of the now defunct Workbench Magazine of this era. Permission was granted by the new Workbench Publication for The Patriot Woodworker community to copy and use the old Workbench Magazine at our pleasure, and for free distribution and re-use. Here is a wonderful diagram for cutting out some classic book ends for your western literature collection. I love these, they remind me of a bygone era of a classic boys room, with these cool bookends on a shelf of the wall. This plan also has a great suggestion for using molten lead for added weight of the bookends. Note the piano wire that is used for the lasso, it appears that as the cowboy draws the lasso tight, the bookends are also being drawn in to tighten upon the books!

I love these modern era furnishings, the clothes valet, may be out dated, but if you are in a tight space, such as a studio apartment or small home, and lack sufficient closet space, this would be a great project that is both useful and fashionable, imagine this piece in Walnut! Have fun!
