My grandson was visiting and was making some Christmas gifts with Grandma out of wood, paper, styrofoam, etc. They was doing this in her sewing room. Soon he came to my shop looking for rubberbands. I had 3 small boxes of different sizes, from a garage sale. He left, but soon returned for a tiny hook for his tree ornament. Of course I have different sizes in silver and gold color. Later he returned for something else, while I went to another storage box, he said," Grandpa, you don't have a workshop, you got a hardware store" I just had to smile
Had a pair of visitors this morning, in the Dungeon Shop....They came over from Columbus , OH. Quick tour of the Dresser Build, then on the road back to the Columbus area.....with me riding "Shotgun" Stopped at Andrew P. 's basement shop first. NICE shop, mainly power tools, but still a LOT of hand tools. He makes more boxes than I do. Load up, and head further into town. Around east 6th street.....stopped at a hole in the wall cabinet shop/ guitar shop. Owner has been selling a LOT of old arn, from around the area. Our other partner -in-crime in today's adventures, Chris H. seems to have bought an older Delta Cabinet saw. Took the three of us, and the seller to tear the saw enough to load into the back of Andrew's SUV. Motor cover was the metal box. Then we motored slowly to Chris's house, and unloaded the pieces. No, we did NOT back up real fast and slam n the brakes. Then, since we were there, we toured Chris's shop. Takes up the entire bay of the garage. Got to see all his tools and things, and a lot of his projects he has made. Finally, we all piled back into the SUV and headed back north. Stopped at a Mexican place for supper ( BURP!) and then back to Andrew's place. He dug out the Tormek, and sharpened a couple chisels for me. Finally, time to tell Andrew farewell, and Chris drove me back home. LONG day, but got to visit a few other nice shops.....both looked better than mine. Plans are to meet again in about a month. Weather was perfect, traffic wasn't that bad, shops looked GREAT, food was good! Rather enjoyed the day. As for that seller....he collects old arn, and resells them....some dummy forgot to bring his camera along.....maybe next time...?
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
