By Peter Follansbee "The ease of working green wood is one of the benefits of working this way; it cuts much easier than wood that has lost most of its moisture. As wood dries, it becomes tougher & tougher to cut. That green wood can be easily riven along its fibers is an additional benefit; with a carefully selected tree, you can produce your rough-dimensioned stock quickly & easily right from the log – with a good deal of careful practice. Once the log is on the ground, one person can reduce the log into working stock right where it was felled, if needed. Working just with wedges, maul, maybe a hatchet here & there, and a saw for some cross-cuts, splitting stock out is very appealing work. It’s very physical, gets you outdoors, working in the woodpile or woods, instead of inside the shop. The other day I was working some stock outside on the best type of New England day there is, cool fall weather, golden sunshine filtering through the last few leaves on the maples…" Quote by Peter Follansbee

Please tell us what's happening in your shops, your life, and any events going on with you. Thank you for being here folks! The Morris home has been busy and not so busy at the same time. Our youngest girl came home from Army Basic Training for Christmas, she arrived on the 19th of Dec and she is leaving January 2nd. Apparently these days the Military sends home trainees for Christmas, and the staff for two weeks, whether they are in Basic or AIT (school). So we got to have our baby girl home for Christmas. She has been dealing with some challenges, she was injured and had to be recycled through basic training, she fractured her pelvic bone, and has been marching on it for weeks, so she has had some time to just sit still, relax, and get it on the mend while home, unfortunately it will not be completely healed when she returns but she has vowed (against our wishes) to keep on through the pain, and complete basic training, and when she reports into the school, she'll see medical staff and get healed. But we've had her here at home, and it was one of the best Christmas's ever, there is a special feeling when a child comes home from the military for the Holidays, I know some of you here experience this often. All I can say is, we waited on her hand and foot, and her brother and sister were right in there with us helping her out, and making her stay with us comfortable and happy. Image at left (mama, daughter, me dad) is the night her mama and siblings drove down to San Diego and brought her back from the airport, she flew in from Ft. Jackson SC, she'd been up for a day and half processing out for the trip and traveling! I came home from work to an empty home, and I got her favorite "Dad Meal" ready for her (chili and cornbread) while they made their way home. When she arrived the dinner was ready, the fireplace was going, and the dogs were happy to see her home, and she ate, and ate, her first home cooked meal by me, and she talked and talked, and we just enjoyed the first night with our daughter completely. So that was our Christmas, we hope you all had a wonderful Christmas as well, and you'll roll onto a wonderful New Year as well!

  6. So we have family relatives celebrating their 60’th anniversary in November. I decided to make them a heart with their names and the year 1959 on it. I haven’t finished it yet. Woodcraft had a nice wide piece of wood, so I bought it. It is Guanacaste, I think it is also known as Parota, I don’t like it. So far I have worked with Cherry, Poplar, and Baltic birch. This stuff doesn’t seem to cut cleanly, lots of fuzzies, I’m hoping I like it better after it’s finished. Don’t think I’m gonna buy any more. Guess it’s time to learn how to glue up boards.
  7. 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?

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.

These axes would be classified as hand axes for obvious reasons. Read more... Featured Topic Featured Image Boys in Catholic High School wood shop learning scroll sawing.

  12. It’s beensaid that every good pitcher needs a backup so here I am. Today, I’m John Moody’s hairy legged backup for the Friday post. Finally, we finished siding our house and I’m back in the shop. My to do list has gotten only longer in the past month while I turned siding expert but mama is happy. I have a show in November and I’m building jewelry boxes but tomorrow I’ll start building an 84” x 40” farm table. So, as John would say, “What’s on your Weekend Agenda?”
  13. Hey gang, Friday is here again. Been a weird week in my shop because of what I built and what I'm destroying. I finished flocking the jewelry box trays yesterday but the rest of the week was spent helping two other families. My neighbor has a sump that empties the water from his basement and he wanted a make a trough with a fake pitcher pump to catch the water. The drain line will go to the bottom of the pump and it will drain into a 4 foot long horse trough. Time will tell how we did. The rest of my free time went to help my son. He bough a house across the street from his at a Freddie Mac sale and we are "deconstructing" it. Looks like this may take all summer and I'm not sure my old body will take it. This house looks like the Winchester Mansion, Midwest edition. The guy had add ons everywhere. We've been at it a week and here are a few pictures showing our progress.
  14. It's Friday! Good day Patriot Woodworkers! What y'all doing this weekend an what have you planned for shop time? Also, what have you planned for life? Any topic is welcome, birthday parties, woodworking, trips, anything. So, lets hear it, plans, we want your plans! A Good Project I'd like to share a wonderful project Steven Newman has been involved in, and it's finally done! As we all know, Steve is our neanderthal woodworker to our community, his projects always involved extensive hand work, and patience, and he works in a small space that would turn most woodworkers into, well, non woodworkers! I have always admired Steve's zeal and commitment to the craft. MWTCA "What's It" The current What's It will be drawn tonight for a random winner for a one calendar year membership to the MWTCA. Featured Image of the Weekend Just a fun collage I created of people, can you name them all? Starting from the top left working across.
  15. Hey Patriot Woodworker's! Here we are another weekend and a late Friday topic, sorry about that. But we have to ask, "What is on your woodworking agenda this weekend?" Any and all events to discuss are welcome, shoptime, outside work, honey do's, kids birthday parties, the grands coming to visit, you can talk about it here. My weekend Working on our patio shade structure again, just nipping away at it one board at a time, with kids around it's kind of challenging to get a good roll, I'll hang a joist, then I have to break away and pick one up from an event they are at, come home, hang another joist, "Hey dad, I need help with my science project" oh ya, and Mama is in the middle of it all getting things done too, as many of you know with kids, it's energy and excitement most every day. But we are getting it all done, the posts are up, the supports for the shade pieces are going up, and next weekend I should be installing the 2" x 3" shade slats across the supports. Easy Wood Tools Is in Florida, if you are in the area, drop on by and say howdy! @Jim from Easy Wood Tools may be there, I am not sure. So that's if from me folks, hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and life treats you grandly and wonderfully!
  16. January 2018..... Who'da thunk it? Many years ago, my wife's great grandmother told us to enjoy our lives while we're young because they fly by quickly. We thought she was crazy but she was right as rain. Like many parts of the nation we have been sub-zero for much of the week. One night was 12 below zero with a nice stiff wind. Luckily, my shop is well insulated and heated. Allen Worsham got a taste of Tennessee winters this week and managed to snag the flu while they were visiting. I spoke with Larry Buskirk today (he said "HI" to everyone) and he said the temps in Wisconsin were nasty. Enough of the weather. After a couple of weeks off I'm back in the shop building a pair of cherry bookcases for a customer. I had a friend drop off a never used Carvewright CNC router to learn but that's a week or so away. Tomorrow, my son and daughter and I am going to a large genealogical library in Ft Wayne, Indiana as we continue to search our family tree. This has been an ongoing project of mine for nearly 40 years and now that I have my kids interested, the search is more fun. That's my short term plan. What's on your weekend agenda, fellow Patriot Woodworkers?
  17. What's on your agenda this weekend! Well well here we are again folks, getting ready to launch into yet another weekend of fun and shop antics! As is our tradition here on The Patriot Woodworker we want to know, what have you got planned for your shops this weekend, projects, jigs, maintenance, customer stories, and or, life in general? What the heck is going on with you all this weekend? Please post some progress images too if you can, we love to see your work! And we'd also love to see your trip to the beach, your outing for the day, how about a picture of you? Yes, we are nosy, because we care and we like to see just what the heck is going on. Some happenings As some of you may know, we now have our new store open again. This time our Patriot Woodworker T-Shirts are featured along with some wonderful warm Patriot Caps! Why are they called Patriot Caps? Well because some wonderful young lady's hand crafted them, for the purpose of supporting our friends at Homes for Our Troops. All the proceeds minus shipping costs are donated to Homes for Our Troops when you purchase a warm cozy hand made cap. The proceeds from our T-Shirts go directly to supporting our community here, to help offset the costs of hosting fees and licensing dues. Click on STORE and support a great cause! Featured woodwork's Herb, or better known as @Dadio has introduced many of us to a bow sander. He has made a grip of these sanders for his buddies in his woodworking club. Way to go Herb! To see his topic on Bow Sanders click on the preceding link. Featured video I love woodworking from the past, I was perusing YouTube and found this really neat old video for a public service message for Vocational Videos. It's a wonderful video. Lastly Have fun folks!!! Take care, be safe in all you do, and we look forward to hearing all about your weekend plans.
  18. Well folks, I dropped the ball and did not cover this Friday topic for our Administrator John Moody! Our admin John Moody is getting ready for a life event, so he may not be around here for a couple weeks or even more! But he is fine and healthy. As you all know John is our Friday topic fellow, and he always gets a nice friendly topic up here on Fridays to ask you all, what's on your woodworking agenda this weekend? I am filling in, so I may not do as good a job as John Moody, but here we go. What are you all up to this weekend! I know it's late, but I had to say it, to cover my duties. So, what do you all have in the oven? I was in the shop last night for a couple hours building a wood bending steam box for the shaker chairs I am ready to make. It was a fun project, just some pine, some butt joints, and some basic carpentry, I love these projects, they bring me back to the beginnings, I had the radio on, I had a little fire pit going right outside my shop, and I had my Appalachia music in the background. Here is an album I started for the process of the steam box. Picture below is a the view out the back of my shop/garage towards our back yard. I was getting a tad chilled working in my shop, so I just set out the ol fire pit and used it for a heating source to walk out too and get warm, then head back in and keep working on the steam box. Then the word got out to the kids that dad had started a fire. So, my son joined me outside, he brought his lap top out and sat by the fire as did his home work. He is currently working on a huge project, he is building a website for the annual "History Day" project for school. The website he is making is dedicated to the men of the "Irish Brigade" during the Civil War". He loves military history, and he chose to create a project about the fierce Irish Brigade. So that's been my weekend of woodworking thus far! I'll head back into the shop today and complete that steam box. Thanks all for being here, and don't forget to tell us. What's on your woodworking agenda this weekend!
  19. Seems as though the weeks are just flying by. Here we are at the end of May already and jumping full into Summer. I hope you are getting to spend some time in your shop. I hope to get to visit in my shop a little this weekend, but I will be limited to what I can do and for sure don't want to trip over anything in there. I am working on the rehab of my new knee and it is going well, but yes it does hurt at therapy. I was able to get 85 degrees of bend today which is excellent since it has only been a week and two days since the surgery. Today they put me on the bike and told me to try to get it to go all the way around backward. I could get close but just couldn't get it to go all the way around. It looks so easy, but it just doesn't happen sometimes. Yes I was almost all the way to the top but it just wouldn't make it over. But as I have been out of the shop for a few weeks, my sons and DIL and my wife have been keeping things going and making cutting boards and other projects to keep us on schedule. My son and I were talking and came up with this polka dot cutting board. He also has three other boards with some variation in the layout ready to get glued this weekend. I hope I can get out there and maybe help do a little glue up or run the drum sander. I can sit on a stool and work on those items for a little while. So that is what is happening in our shop right now. What are your plans for this coming weekend in your Patriot Woodworker shop? Are you working on a new jig, starting a new project, finishing up a project, working on Father's Day projects, organizing the shop, doing home improvement, getting the yard ready for summer, or spending some time inn the recliner and resting after a long hard week? We here at TPW are interested in the projects you are doing in your shop and love to see pictures of your projects and information about what you are doing posted here. So come on and tell us about your weekend projects! You never know your project just might inspire someone else to give it a try. I am waiting to see what you are doing, so come on and post.
  20. The countdown continues and next Friday I will be officially retired. As I understand, it really just means I change bosses. But for a while I will be here by my self during the day. We'll see how it works out. So a few weeks back I posted a picture of a couple of Poplar tables I was working on to become Lego building tables. At this point all I had to do was put the trim piece around the top that helps keep the pieces from falling off the table. So this week I got all of that finished and got the tables painted Lego Red and added the Green 10"x10" Lego bases. This gives them something to start building from. I made one of these for my grandson for Christmas and had several people wanting one. So now these two are ready for pickup and should bring hours of fun in Lego building. I used epoxy to attach the bases to the top. Today I am working on gluing up and hopefully getting these two Walnut panels cut into a circle 27 1/8" to be used as a table top on a Bistro Table. I'll take them down to almost a 1/2" thick and the bevel the edge after it is round. And while I am waiting on that to dry I am working on building a cherry base for this Marble Chessboard that came from Italy. I also have this small veneer repair to do on this old coffee table They saved the piece of veneer and taped it on so I will get it glued back in place for them. That's what is happening in my shop, what projects are you working on this weekend in your Patriot Woodworker shop? All of us here at TPW love to see the pictures and projects you are working on so share this weekends projects with us. Have a fun and safe weekend in the shop making sawdust!!
  21. Hello all. Here's what I will be doing this weekend, making tops and other items. This one is pretty much complete, It just needs a bit of sanding and finish. I was hoping it was going to be a bit wider so that it might balance a bit better but it still should work. I'll try throwing it tomorrow after the glue sets and see how it does.
  22. My buddy John Moody is on the road pickin' today so he asked me to ask you, "What's on your agenda?" No shop time for me this weekend. I'm spending tomorrow at the range with a couple of 9MMs and of course, my beloved Fighting Irish plays Navy tomorrow. Sunday morning the missus and I are flying to Washington D.C. for a few days. So what do you folks have cooking for the weekend?
  23. Still pinch hitting for John Moody as he recovers from hand surgery. Fall has hit the midwest with wind, rain and cooler temperatures. I'm in the shop wrapping up a few cutting boards and trivets for an upcoming show. So, what's on your weekend agenda?
  24. I'm going to pinch hit for my good friend John Moody today. John had a redux on his left hand today so I'll be his hairy legged secretary. Today the love of my life and I traveled to Gas City and Fairmount Indiana to do a little pickin' and a whole lot of street rod viewing. Fairmount was the birthplace of James Dean and the last weekend of September of each year is dedicated to his memory. Thousands of street rods come into the area and we stroll hand in hand listening to the old music, looking at the cars and getting our allotment of junk food. Fred, you and Judy need to trip up here next year! So gang, what's on your weekend agenda? By the way........ Get well soon John Moody!!!
  25. My good friend John Moody normally starts this topic every Friday but he's stuck in traffic leaving Mount Vernon near Washington D.C. With any luck he'll be rolling in to our house tomorrow and we're going to join 400,000 of our closest friends for the 99th running of the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday before he heads back to Alabama. So what's on your agenda for this Memorial Day weekend?
