Thanks John for posting @steven newman's table...I had not seen that before. His ability to stretch material into something useful, practical and pleasing to look at in a minimalist manner is amazing.

 

Love the weathered bench, the lathe and especially the wooden flywheel; the floor is pretty cool too...That's craftsmanship...also see one of your rockers ;)peering in from the left edge of the picture.

 

Weekend, nothing productive; all four grand-kids sick with something or other...watched some of the IHSAA, Class 3 & 4 Regional BB games on Saturday and some of the NASCAR race at Phoenix yesterday.

As for the week ahead, TBD. Normal daily routines. Supposed to see a break from winter by the EOW so maybe will be able to do something productive.

Spent a long weekend in the big city of Portland - Jeff Dunham concert on Thursday night, Portland Zoo and OMSI on Friday, Cabela's on Saturday. Then we stopped off and visited with the MIL and got home around midnight Saturday (1 am with the time change). Also stopped by both the Rockler and Woodcraft stores. Overall, a very nice weekend.

That lathe looks like it would be a workout just to do one item. Got a busy week ahead. Put lacquer on several items I have been working on. Tomorrow will go to Stew Pot to serve lunch and then in PM to see dentist to get crown installed. Wednesday will go to set up boot at artisan marketplace an in PM security duty at church. Work at drugstore Thursday and I am already tired just typing it in.

Yeah, that too, but I want pictures of you moving the top.  Barring an injured back, that could be entertaining.  :P

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

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!

Objective

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.

Volunteer

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.

Education

Logging

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.
