  1. After getting back from my long road trip, I picked up a load of Cedar I had at the saw mill. I have had to jump into full production of Green Egg Tables as I got behind on orders while I was away. This weekend and through last night we have three table assembled, two finished and one that I need to cut the hole for the egg to nest in. The shop is getting full and I still have two more to build. It has been all hands in the shop and lots of work getting done. The next one I start is a custom with two cabinets and three drawers. It will be 6' in length and 30 1/2" deep 34" tall. I am starting the glue up for the top since it will have a solid top. I'll have more to share with you later....
  2. So this may be a long one, and if posted in the wrong forum, feel free to relocate. My life has been very busy for the last year. I’m still working on one set of friends addition (end is in sight, but the garage hasn’t even been framed yet, I do the electrical). I went on vacation as of 3:00 pm yesterday, and will be changing the electrical service for another friend this week. Our son is engaged, they’ve bought a house, and I have projects going on over there. I average 48-50 hours a week at work. My only female cousin, and also only one older than me, passed away the first week of June from ALS. My kid brother committed suicide August last year. I am still mad at him for that, and obviously still coming to terms with it. I did not post this trolling for sympathies, or condolences, but it has a bearing on the story. My Mom passed away on Easter of 2014, and my sister was the executor. My Father’s Mother had collected Hummels, and my sister had not gotten to dividing them up among us, before my brother’s death. This really bothered her, and she was afraid that if she didn’t divide them up soon, another of us would be gone. So on Palm Sunday this year my other brother, and myself, met at my sisters house and we divided up the Hummels. They are porcelain/ceramic figurines of children, made in Germany. Around 1968 my Mom’s dad (my grandfather) made 4 mangers, and bought 4 nativity sets. He kept one, and gave one to each of his children. My sister got my grandparents manger and I got my parents manger. There were roughly 60 Hummels, and there was a nativity set. My sister and I agreed to give Paul the nativity set, and I would build him a manger, before Christmas (see there is something dealing with WW’ing here ). When I got home from my sisters house that Palm Sunday, I was putting the Hummels away. I happened to glimpse into one of them, which was a bank, and saw a piece of paper. The key to the bank was taped to the bottom of it. It was a gift to my Dad’s Mom, from my parents, Christmas of 1957. I know this because my grandmother wrote it on the bottom of the Hummel, in pen. (Probably not adding to it’s value). So I opened the bank, and the piece of paper inside was my Father’s first grade picture, Dec 20, 1937 (pictures will follow). It was kinda like Dad saying hi, from the beyond. So today I went down to the basement and looked at my manger, and started cutting pieces of 1/4 Baltic birch for the new manger. I have a ShopSmith so I had to set everything up, and then disassemble and put away, clean up, so the Missus can use the basement. I also did a couple of loads of laundry while I was down there. I GOT TO SMELL SAWDUST! Now this is gonna be a box with a slanted top, pretty simple, nothing special. But for me this is awesome, I even got to use my tapering jig (store bought) for the first time. I will post some pictures of the process as it happens, and even if my friends projects don’t get done on time, or if I don’t work all the OT my job may demand, I’m gonna get my brother’s manger done in time. One of my reasons for posting this is so that if there are any other members here like me, just beginners, or still learning, it’s ok. The regular posters here are very talented, and their work is beautiful, and I suspect that may intimidate some of us from posting (There is a very high bar here), so I’ll happily be a representative for the newbie’s, still learning, 2 left handed, among the forum. One of the reasons that this is my single favorite forum is the overwhelming friendliness, and helpfulness of the members. There is none of the condensension, and snide remarks, that I have seen from the experts (self nominated) at some other sites (and I’m not referring necessarily about woodworking forums). So I stopped working on the project while I’m contemplating how I’m gonna do the joinery. This is NOT a request for help or advice, I wanna think about this, and come up with my own ideas, not because of pride, but because this is how I learn best. I had a great day, just being in the shop, it’s so much fun. I suspect that those here who have decades working in their own shops still get this feeling. I try to remind the old timers on some of my metal detecting sites, how much of a thrill it is for the newbs to just find a quarter, it can be easily forgotten how we all started out. On another note, my Missus’s friend, who has Everett for a son, does not seem inclined to let him come over and learn to use the scroll saw. I have asked, and the look on her face was like I was asking to let him swim in the alligator infested water. I learned, and I had fun, so there’s always that. Sorry for the long, disjointed epic
  3. Some of you older members of The Patriot Woodworker may remember my shop build from about 3 years ago. The project got put on hold for a couple of years due to the wifes, and mother in laws health issues and simply running low on funds to continue the project. I'm now finally getting back to the project. For the newer members, here are some before, & after photos of the project. I'll be posting more as I get things done.
  4. Ok so here goes a dirty shop y'all wanted to see and that is what you will get. I only totaly (or nearly totally) clean the shop once a year when I have the turning club in and this is not that time. In the middle of turning offering plates and have extra wood for that just in case. This is just inside the door. Door is on the right. Bookshelf converted to sales rack now is a drying rack. That multicolor unit on the left is salvaged cash drop boxes from drugstore tilled together and wheels added. Jet 1642 in the background and the backside of main turning station. Continue to the left now is the rest of the drying racks and stereo is behind that insulator. Computer provides music from my files. These drawer units are from Drugstore as well as several more base units on these two walls. The knee hole provides a carving and burning station. More of the wall with upper cabinets carry into the corner. The large cabinet has shelf with clear plastic cover for screws. In the foreground is my finishing station . Will take a lot of cleaning before I can do any spraying. This should have been two pics. In the middle is my workbench and behind it is the CMS station with drawer units underneath it and large clamps stores above and to the left of it . Oh and my two gigantic Pioneer floor speakers. To the right wall begins wood storage with flatstock. Those red , orange and green colors in the middle of photo are my Kbody, and other brands of of assorted clamps. Now for the Performax 16 32 and the Ridgid ROS/belt sander. Just under the PSI arm is the Craftsman 6 inch antique joiner. On the next wall is turning blanks . A better view of some the items seen in previous shot. Grinding station with scroll saw stored (hardly ever use that) , drill press and bandsaw. To the right you can barely see the top of the Dust Deputy. Now a prime view of the router station covered in turning blanks. More turning wood and the Delta lathe covered up. Now for the final my turning station . The drawer units in back were built to go under the lathes till I discovered it was easier to stack and not have to bend so much . Behind these drawers is another flatwood rack on wheels. Lighting is on 5 separate switches , mostly based on workstations.
  5. Wood is my biggest problems...too much of it back when I use to make lots of auctions . I don't get the planer out and set it up very often but when I do I run lots of boards through then trying to get them stacked and stickered is a big mess... This is the first time in a few years my sink actually looks like a sink. It was the first area I started cleaning and the bathroom is full of wood I can just barley get in to but hey it don't need to look purty. All parts of my shop looked like this when I started And I did free up a few HF clamps I had on the resawed wood for a bunch of years... If you ever resawed any 3/4" hardwood and just laid it over somewhere and forgot about it for a year or so when you finally needed some of that wood and didn't have it clamped back together to keep it straight then you know why I clamp all my resawed wood I resaw myself. This is only about half of the clamps still in use but I hope to get them all free by tomorrow night... And this is the first time in three of four years I can see the outfeed table rollers I built about 18 years ago. I had brought a box of 500 gocart wheel bearings with me before I sold our business and this out feed table took 64 of those bearings. Its kinda hard knowing what I was going to do after I retired but I had way too much inventory to leave for someone else... I also brought a few old antique coin operated video games that was popular way back when pac man and galaga first hit the scene. Thinks to my son for he knew what everyone would play. We opened that part of our lives in 1984 and the video games were still a thing to do for no cell phones had come on the scene I don't think? I also have a sit down mrs pac man which we put in the house from time to time.... much better than messing with a phone which I don't touch at all. Wife bought me one and it has never been used in a few years now. She makes sure the batteries are charged but I don't know why.. The reason I started cleaning was I dropped a couple of small pieces of the pictures I am working on and couldn't find them so cleaning some of the area was needed. Sure glad I don't have my shop in a basement!
  6. My shop is a small,15x15 area. No windows. I did clean up, a lot, before the photos. Don’t know what else to say...it’s small.
  7. My own dad, John H. Morris in his shop we built together back in 2005. He lives in the mountains nearby, he is Papa Jack to my wife, Grandpa to our kids, and at 86 years old, he's doing pretty danged good. He loves building birdhouses for the locals where he lives, and he has earned the nickname "Birdman" and he wears it proudly. Actually he didn't even know he had the nickname till just a few weeks ago, he heard it through the grapevine and he was tickled to death to know that he has an official nickname in his community. Love ya Dad! Just thought I'd share to you all my Dad. Class act he is, he loves solitude, self reliance, his garden, and building these little bird homes. Next to the shop is his single wide trailer that was pulled up on the property in the late 60's, the trailer is old, but he made it home. He's been living there since 2004. Dad, smiling for the camera Dad's shop looking out the front door He has a work station with the belt sander, palm sander, and cutoff saw, that only he knows why it's set up that way, for his birdhouse, and he gets a lot done DeWalt RAS, I know I know, don't say it, the blade guard, I used to get on him bout this, but he's been doing this since I was a kid, I used to cut wood all day myself without the blade guard on his RAS as a kid in his other shop, matter of fact I learned some of my worse safety or non safety practices from Dad, and later learned through working in the trades, what safety really meant, but hey, like I said, you aint gonna convince an 86 year old man otherwise, is what it is. I did however get on him about using a 10" blade on an 8" RAS, he did heed my warning on that, promptly switched them out. Dad, with his hands on his hips, he walks around most the day like that, I think he got that from his own dad, my dad was raised on a farm in the Catskill's of New York, the farmers all walked around like that when they got old. @aaronc, some of the antler I told you about. See, hands on the hips still, told ya! Old hand made three wheel band saw I gave my dad, I got from an estate that turned over hand made machinery to me to distribute to folks in need, I asked them if my dad could have this old three wheeler, they loved the fact it was going to dad. Sent them pics of Dad with the BS and they loved it. The saw works great by the way. Just another view out the front of the shop This is shot from his trailer, looking out, he actually has a stick built sun room built off the side of the single wide, he spends all of his time there with his dog Susie. He watches TV, reads, surfs the net, and he has this view, sorry the image is blurry, but it kind of gives ya an idea of what he sees every day, just beautiful country up there, 45 minutes from us. Thanks for reading!

    This is my shop now, after a big downsize last summer, we are able to park my wife's car in the garage now. Before there were many machines here, with a big ol Table Saw and workbench where my Shopsmith now sits till I am done and I roll it away to the side of the garage. All in all I am very happy with what have now, and I am doing many operations with less, and I am getting better at using the Shopsmith, it's a fine machine for me.
  9. Here is a video to maybe explain that gremlin in the shop and why you just cannot find anything. A homeowner puzzled as to who was mysteriously tidying up his garden shed late at night was astonished to find the culprit was a HOUSE PROUD MOUSE. Stephen Mckears, 72, first noticed objects moving in his shed a month ago and asked his neighbour Rodney Holbrook, 70, to help him get to the bottom of the mystery. The retired electrician noticed plastic clips appearing in an old ice cream tub filled with peanuts which he keeps to feed the birds before more objects began to accumulate. Questioning his sanity, Stephen emptied the tub each night, scattering the nuts and bolts across his shed, only to discover the mess had been cleaned by the morning. After weeks of finding large screws, plastic leads, nuts and bolts neatly filed away, the pair decided to set up a trail camera to uncover the mystery guest. Shop Mouse
  10. Today I finally finished the set up for my garage since moving from Corona, CA to Bowling Green, KY! Got everything in its place but will have to tweak some things. The clamps are hung on the wall along with 6 saw horses. The 2 large metal shelves I got to go through all of it. When we get a new shed 1or both of those shelves will go into the shed. I am waiting now for some dust collection fittings for the new Saw Stop from Rockler. Since I do not have a dedicated dust collector, I will use my Ridgid shop-vac. I knew I had to finally use those Rockler Gift Cards as they have been in my wallet for a long time.

    Inside the Maloof customer gallery, this is where potential customers come and place orders. This chair is one of his earlier models, you can tell by the straight back support spindles, later he started curving the back for lumbar support.

    A Maloof Chair in progress, this chair is being made by Mike Johnson, the first paid employee of Maloof from his early years. Maloof entrusted Mike with the daily operations of the shop, and he passed on the legacy to Mike upon Sam's death. I got to sit and watch Mike shape the headrest for this chair with rasp. It was fun. We came back an hour later and he had closed up shop around 3:30pm.

    This is the front entrance courtyard to the Maloof home, this was the beginning of our tour, the inside of the home was amazing, with his work all over the place, and their art collection.

    The smell inside of Maloof's walnut storage barn was incredible. My wife looks on in awe at the figure in the slab walnut.

    My lovely wife on our 28th Anniversary date to the Maloof compound. This is a separate gallery showcasing the friends of Maloof and their artwork they donated or gifted to the family. The chair is a Maloof, the only Maloof item in this gallery, made of Avocado wood from one of his trees, it was not the best looking Maloof I have seen, the wood did not take his finish very well, and it was blotchy, and I am certain it was not his favorite chair, thus the reason they set here, accessible to the public.
