  4. 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.

Thank you for making our newest folks feel welcome. Featured topic A great topic by @forty_caliber and some great follow up replies on the subject. Featured download It's rare that a member shares a download with our community, if you would like to share a plan, a file, or even a drawing schematic, please do so at our Download department. Featured link Featured video I love watching Craft in America, it's a PBS exclusive that features artists in our America. The quality of the show is extraordinary as they feature the artisans that help make up our culture as Americans. If you've never seen Craft in America, it's my opinion you have been missing out on the exploration of a wonderful segment of our American culture. The cinematography is wonderful, and the music they feature with the program is relaxing and fitting for each segment they feature. You should be able to watch it at your local PBS programing as they come available, or if you stream your shows you can binge watch it at the PBS streaming channel. Here is a wonderful out take featuring one of my favorite woodworkers "George Nakashima" and his daughter "Mira Nakashima". Enjoy!

I have continued to scan my collection of Workbench Magazine plans for our guests and members to download from our Files Department, and I thought I'd share the Shop Tips section of the magazine as well. As is the case with my file downloads for plans from Workbench Magazine, the same applies here, I have received permission from the current Workbench Magazine to publish the old articles and plans on the open source web. Please see the collection of plans as well at https://thepatriotwoodworker.com/files/ Enjoy! These tips still apply to our work today, very cool!

This is perhaps the most refined of his few surviving works. He was strongly influenced by his proximity to two important schools of gunmaking: the Emmitsburg School, to the south in Maryland, and the Chambersburg School, to the west in Franklin County.

Featured image An incredible collaboration of art between husband and wife. See the full story here at House Brothers Project. Frank and Lally wanted to create a work of art that would be a composite of their individual mediums. The concept evolved into a unique, powerful sculpture they named Nechasin. Pronounced, nay-Cha-seen, a Lenape ~ Delaware name meaning 'to be watchful'. This mixed media sculpture is a testament of 18th century culture. Originally Frank imagined a rifleman or other entity that may have carried the sword, but as the idea evolved, Lally's artwork dictated that the piece should be Native American, specifically Delaware. This tribe was known for fierceness and tenacity as warriors, however, they preferred to choose a path of peace when possible. The sculpture incorporates a number of Frank and Lally's pieces, including a rifle, tomahawk, powder horn, and quillwork. Its head and hands are a composite of carved wood overlaid with mosaic bone and sculptured ivory. The body is willow-bough framework covered with cotton batting and homespun linen.

Featured Image USMC Veteran Erik Florip is a tool maker, a fine tool maker of hand saws, and marking gauges. "I started woodworking in 2012 while active duty in the US Marine Corps. Not long after getting the woodworking bug I started shopping for a handsaw to give dovetails a shot. I found a lot of high price options, being a hobbyist, I couldn’t justify spending a lot of money on a new handsaw. I opted for an old Disston found at an estate sale. I learned how to sharpen on this saw and was a good user after the restoration. After this I got the idea to try building my own saw…it wasn’t pretty but it worked. I was hooked on tool making."

  19. Seems like this year has been flying by. Here we are the last weekend in September, fall is here, football season in full swing and a good time to get in the shop. So I got my digital duplicator hooked up on my CNC and ran the first test. It saves the file in a special format and you have to register the unit to get the software to be able to view the file and export it so you can ring it into VCarve. So to keep this short, it said you had to list the serial number to register it. Well I spent two days going over the piece, the box, the manual and there was no serial number. Called TS and they said it didn’t have a serial number but they would send me the software. A day later and still no software so another call to TS. They told me I had to connect the CNC to the computer via usb cable to register and then it would send me the link to the software. Well the comics in my office and the CNC is 30’ away in the shop. No usb cable that long. So I had to dissembled the computer and move it to the shop, connect it and register. By the way, they emailed me a serial number to use. So long story, I got the software and was finally this week able to see my first test. I had it to duplicate a 1911 grip as my test piece. It was the one for the other side and not the one pictured below. It took just over an hour for it to duplicate. Here red is a screen shot after I was able to import the file. I pretty nice job. I can’t wait to really put this to work and make some pieces. I have a small piece of molding I need to duplicate to repair an antique headboard. So that’s what I’ve been working on. This weekend we’re headed to Nashville to the flea market. What’s on your agenda this weekend? Share with us your projects and pictures. Love to read about and see what you all are working on. Thanks to @Ron Dudelston for putting up the Friday post for me. I was in Talladega and not Stock car racing, but at the 26th annual Glock Sport Shooting Foundation match. A year ago was my first time to complete in this event and I was 183rd out of 253 entries. This year I made some improvements and finished 98th out of 250 entries. In some places it was hundreds of a second separating places. So I was very proud of my improvements. Now just got to move up that much more next year. Have a great weekend and whatever ever your doing, have fun and be safe,

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.
