    Weekend Project, Bottle Stoppers

    In the weekly thread for the woodworking agenda, I mentioned that i was working on bottle stoppers. Here's the one I am working on now, it had a cut in it so I am going to cut it off there, then finish shaping it. I also drilled the opposite end to make a second stopper, since this piece is so long. I see a few minor cracks, so i will fill those soon.
  2. 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! As for me, I have a whole week off! Kids are on Spring Break and we have plans to see some sights. We'll be heading down to San Diego for a couple day trips, it's only 2 hrs away so we don't need to stay the night down there, and we'll visit some of our favorite places, The Cabrillo National Monument, Balboa Park, possibly the San Diego Zoo, and the beach of course, and we'll visit my old stomping grounds for some great food, but it'll be fun. I'll try to get some shop time in between it all, our kids are growing up so fast, I feel like I need to squeeze what remaining time I have left with them into a few short years anytime I have a day off. Our oldest is back to college, her Spring Break ended last week, so we'll just have our two youngest with us for this week off. Have a wonderful week ahead all! Who is behind The Patriot Woodworker? Of course our Forum Hosts and our Admins are! They run the joint around here, and without them we'd be in a world of hurt. Occasionally though I like to show off my family (the unseen heroes), who has supported my own efforts here on The Patriot Woodworker, with a ton of patience, and understanding for ol Dad. We take a few pictures once a year at this old picnic bench every Easter Morning after services. We have 17 years worth of images at this exact location in our backyard since we moved into our home, and it has become a family Easter Tradition. My wife and I have been married for 27 years, and we have lived in this home for 17 of those wonderful and at times challenging years. My very patient family seen below, my eyes look closed, they aren't though, I can actually see through them squinty eyes. I would like to officially and publicly thank my family for allowing Dad to be here, having fun with ya'll.

  16. At what point in your life (and year) did you start woodworking? I get asked this question occasionally, like this week. I usually respond, "Well, that's sort of like asking a singer when they started singing." I grew up in the 50s and 60s. I dinked around with wood some as a kid, but my father was not really a woodworker. Just a farmer, you know, fix it up yourself kinda guy. I got some formal "industrial arts" in seventh and eight grade. But not in High School. That was for the "shop guys" as they were known. Off to college in the 70s. After graduation, lived in apartments for a few years and built some things "just because I needed them for the home." Moved every year or two for about 5 years, which made it difficult to really get started. Then about 1980, started acquiring a few more tools, doing more reading and self-education, and took off as my primary avocation. About 2003, frustrated with my job and fearing the biennial layoffs, quit and started my own furniture repair business. Still here, still learning, still doing the work,though now semi-retired, part-time, and woodworking as a hobby "because my kids need things for their homes." Most of the people I know started out the same way.

    s ago In my lifetime of woodworking, paw built truck bodies when I wuz little. Still remember 1/4'' bolts, nuts & washers, the 'speed handle w/socket to fit those 1/4'' nuts, bolted on sidebody 1X4's. The way the two ''sills' 4X6 were cut out to fit the hump in truck frame over rear axle. Paw cut'm out w/foot azz, so they fit down solid and then bolted down with piece of metal over the sill and one underneath the truck frame, with two long bolts at each, four to /for each truck body. Usually smidgen higher/taller that truck cab. Sometime customer wanted about two foot higher sections, that could be slipped down into original/everyday bodies, to haul livestock or ear corn. *****Foot azz is grubbing hoe type thing with a crocked handle, bout 30 something inches long. This is all I know to call/name it. Prolly aint made anymore for sale. Blade bout 4'' wide. alright if ya made it this far, I love lathe, building Cedar chest, picture frames, etc., etc. ****2007 started writing, named all books Wiregrass, Grits & 1.MURDER, 2.FOGGY HORSESHOE,3.GHOST DANCER,4.SECOND CHANCE--all about a yankee that came south, stayed raised a family. Then one little stand alone called WIREGRASS AND GRITS, 5.For boys only. Not a dirty/off color word in any ov'm. btw, Amazon has one of these for $50 something. Cya
  20. There was a topic recently about custom woodwork, which I've now lost track of. I heard Nancy in a presentation last weekend and meant to post some of here thoughts, but could not find those either at the time. Probably the best advice I got before I quit my job and started my business from from a (former) custom woodworker, "The world is full of ex-custom woodworkers paying off their IRS debts." That was enough to lead me in another direction. Here's one of Nancy's recent posts http://www.finewoodworking.com/2017/08/14/nancy-hillers-reality-checklist

    The stuck drill bit hollow form

    Some may remember I posted pictures of a hollow form I was drilling and the forstner bit got stuck deep inside. Happily, I eventually got the bit unstuck and was able to continue. Even more happily, the vessel was dry enough to finish this week. Here it is, third coat of oil just applied. It will probably get two or three more coats before I'm done. Keep in mind, the oil is freshly applied so it will lose a little shine. It's about 14" tall and 12" major diameter. I have to tell you I was nervous, nervous while turning off the bottom. Afraid I was going to through. Walnut, what can you say? Steve

    Ralph Jones Quizzes

    I don't know what happened to Ralph, have not seen his quiz since Saturday July 22nd. I'll update ya'll as soon as I hear something, been trying to reach out to him but no luck thus far.
  23. My oldest girl is making a gift for a friend of hers, she needed some boards cut to length on my SCMS. So today she asked me to cut them for her. DAD: Come on over here kid, you can cut these. DAUGHTER: Dad, I don't feel like it, I am a bit nervous on that saw. DAD: Awe come on, you'll be fine, I'll be right here, just keep your hands over here like this, ease the blade down, and you'll be fine. DAUGHTER: Dad, I really don't feel like it, can you please cut those boards for me. DAD: You used to cut lumber pretty good kid, remember that birdhouse you built a few years ago? Come on over here, you'll be fine. DAUGHTER: Dad, I'd rather not. DAD: (slightly disappointed look) DAUGHTER: (big smile) DAD! Remember my college scholarship, I am a violinist, if anything happens to my hands, my music scholarship is dead! DAD: (pause, brain spun, deep thinking now, looking at the ground, then I look up) WELL SHOOT DAB BERN BE DANGED KID, WHAT THE HECK YOU DOIN! GIVE ME THAT DANGED BOARD, GET AWAY FROM HERE I'LL CUT IT!!!! DAUGHTER: (laughing at my sudden concern for her safety) Jeez Dad, when it comes to money you're all heart. Ya gotta love our kids, they are so smart sometimes!

    What's up with George Vondriska and Woodworker's Guild of America? I got an offer last week for a year's premium membership for $3 (instead of $36). Couple of days later it was $3.33, then a couple more it was $10. Now DVDs are 75% off. I'm thinking cash flow crisis???

    No profit margin

    So a friend, who i've made something for previously, posts on FB a pic and link to an oval cutting board that overhangs an inside counter in the kitchen. 24x18, maple, available on Amazon for $132 with free shipping. told him that there is no way that me making that for that price is worth me doing it. figure i'd need about 4BF of lumber. lumber that is 120 miles away (round trip). so i'd spend about $24 on gas just to fetch the lumber, another $25 on the lumber, and another 3-4 hours making it over the course of a day or two. 132-49 = 83, and if i cover shipping, that would be about $30 to me (as i'm not a frequent shipper), so my paper profit is now about $53. for 3 hours of effort, that's only about $17/hr. not worth doing it once you factor in the fixed shop costs that should be accounted for to determine the real "money in my pocket" profit.

We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!


Air Force Command Center Plaque

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.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

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.
