Friday, Feb 28th, What's on Your Patriot Woodworker Woodworking Agenda?

Recommended Posts

Last day of February and that has to mean that Spring is just around the corner. Hopefully we can see a few buds to tell us the snow and cold weather is about over.


First Friday Arts & Crafts shows begin here next week so I have been pushing to get some inventory build back up from last year. Seems every year I have these great plans to be way ahead and something happens (knee surgery) gets in the way and slows me down. Oh well, we are getting there and should be in good shape by next Friday.


Five Medium cutting boards are in the clamps and will come out tomorrow and five small cutting boards will go into the clamps then.


ning-img-3091-4617-19.jpgIt seems like I have every flat surface and any where I can lean a clamp against something is covered up.


ning-img-3092-4617-20.jpgI even have them sitting on the table saw right now and I hate to do that.


But we are getting there and that is what it takes.


Tuesday night while I was out getting these boards ready, Sarge the four month old lab decided to come to the shop with me. For a while he picked up every piece of wood on the floor and would bring it to me. Finally I think it just wore him out, but he decided to take a nap at me feet while I was cutting the strips for the cutting boards.


ning-sarge-4617-87.jpgHe usually doesn't care too much for the noise of the equipment but I think he just gave it up.



Still working on the Cherry Blanket Chest in between other things and got the TV shelf delivered to my friend. So a few things have left the shop which is always a good thing.



Tonight, Beth and I will be attending the Alabama Music Hall of Fame Induction Banquet. The Alabama Music Hall of Fame is located here but every year until this year, they held the banquet in another city. Finally it is coming home and several local musician are being honored along with the documentary on "Muscle Shoals" that was release last year and talks about the music heritage of this area and the impact it had on the music of the 60's and 70's.



So what about the rest of you Patriot Woodworkers, what is on your agenda this weekend? Are you building anything new, making jigs, arranging the shop, or still digging out of the snow? We love to hear about the projects your are working on and love to see the pictures that go along with the projects you are currently building.


So come on and share with us the project that have you making some sawdust in your shop.



I'll be watching to see who has projects going on in their shop so get those pictures posted!

John, you should change your moniker to "Chairman of the Boards". Good looking boards you got glued up, there. And, I can only wish my pups would settle long enough the sleep in the shop. They love to pick up stuff, not just wood either but, they don't bring it to me. They carry it out side. 


Lew, that's going to be an awesome build. Yours gonna be red oak, too?


My job today is lining a few drawers for the jewelry chest I'm building, and install the pin/stud wings and this chest will be ready to send. Good riddance, too.This one seems to have thwarted, frustrated and annoyed me at every step. May have learned enough with this one that the next 3 will be easier. One can only hope.

That is going to be an undertaking Lew!


Do you have plans or just the picture and plans in your head?


I am looking forward to seeing those come along. I think my Son-n-Law is wanting to build something like that for my grandson. I may have to watch you closely and see if we can get his done.

Gene, He love to place fetch. So he is always bringing me a stick or something wanting me to throw it so he can go and get it. He just doesn't always want to release it when he brings it back. He wants to play tug of war.

John,


I drew plans from the picture in Sketchup. Then had the girls' mother and dad approve. I've made some modifications to allow me to build it in the basement then disassemble it to take to their house.

Moody, I'm still jealous that you get to go tonight.  :-(   



I'm in the last 25% of doing a big cabinet build for a couple at church.  I'm trying to get it finished up before a well deserved spring break.

That's awesome Lew. Like I said before I am very interested in following along on this one.

For some unknown reason, it seems  that I have quite a few hand planes to re-sharpen,  and a few chisels....



Found a place in town, that might sharpen hand saws.     Eyes don't work at that level,  usually see twice the teeth that are there...

I'm a little late in posting this because I have been busy in the shop.  This coming weekend is the first of our spring shows.  Because I have been "out of sorts" for over a month, I'm truely behind.

worked to get two planes sharpened up, the Wards78 took maybe 15 minutes, a Kobalt#4 took almost an hour, just to get this farning-imag0006-4618-79.jpg?width=721on pine????  Lots of issues with this plane,    may wind up being more of a scrub plane, than fine smoother..

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.
