What's It Our August "What's It" is live, take a look and submit your educated guess at best for this months item. Featured gallery @DerBengel has created a wonderful gallery this past week, showing of small box joinery and her painting finesse along with picture frame making. Featured image of the week With an age of 4847 years, Methuselah the ancient Great Basin bristlecone pine tree has the honor of being Earth’s oldest non-clonal organism. The tree is located in the White Mountains of Inyo County, Eastern California, but its exact physical location is kept confidential to protect it from people. In 1964, a researcher with the consent of U.S. Forest Service, chopped down a tree which was around 4900 years old (named Prometheus). At present, we can still visit the grove of the ancient bristlecone pine tree forest but can we identify which tree is Methuselah? Source: http://www.wondersify.com/oldest-trees-world/

The MWTCA only accepts a verified source to support your answer, so one should be submitted with your answer, such as a patent, catalog entry, tool book reference, or a respectable website on the subject. Do not let these requirements prevent you from having fun and submitting educated answers on the subject without verification, we can worry about references later. All answers are welcome, as well as healthy debates regarding "What's It".

Only Patriot Woodworker's who participate in this "What's It" topic will be included in the random draw. Ok ladies and gentlemen, we now have our August "What's it" live and ready!

Remember, "What's It" is not always woodworking related! 6" long Text on the handle says "Lutz File and Tool Co. Cinti, O" but that probably refers to the handle only and not the part with the gears. The tag measures 4-3/4" x 2-3/8":

  5. Good Monday Morning Patriot Woodworkers! Well here we are, embarking yet upon another fun week of projects, shop time, good friends and hopefully an expansion of our knowledge as we try new things out, learn from each other, and open our minds up to the possibilities. Woodworking is wonderful isn't it? There is not a single human in this world who could possibly know all there is to know about the different disciplines in woodworking, and that is why it's such an amazing field to be involved in, there is always something new to know, and learn. The main purpose of our Monday Morning topics are to see what you all built over the weekend, and what plans you have for the week ahead. We love to see what is popping in your shops, so please share with us in this topic, what did you do this weekend, and what have you planned ahead? Don't forget to share your images too! Life experiences are welcome too, vacation images, ball game shots, anything you did this past weekend and or are planning for the week ahead. Tutorials Lately we have had some wonderful suggestions for improving our online community, and I'd like to point out some new tutorials for your enjoyment. Profile Information Below Avatars Invite Your Friends How to Create a Blog Viewing Recent Forum Images Member Mentions in Content Those are our latest tutorials, and please keep the suggestions coming, we love to expand and make our community better for all. To submit a suggestion simply start a topic in the Patriot's Pulse Forum and title your suggestion appropriately, and please, only one suggestion per topic, if you submit multiple suggestions in a single topic, we have a hard time tracking them. You may also submit gripes and critiques about our community, we need to hear those too!

  6. Good Monday Morning Patriot Woodworker's! This is your official Monday wake up call and all around nosy inquiry regarding your activities over the weekend and what you may have planned for the week ahead. We like to see what you have built, working on, or are ready to launch into. So go ahead and show us your work, and tell us what's in the oven. Even if your shop was or is dead for the time being, we'd also like to know just overall how the heck are ya. How's life, how's family, how are you? Updates on current happenings As many of you know our winners have been chosen for the Homes for Our Troops raffle fundraiser and the prizes have already shipped, and our lucky recipients have already reported receiving them. I'd like to thank all the participants who donated to Homes for Our Troops in exchange for raffle entries, we raised over $1100.00 with more than 550 ticket purchases. These funds were donated directly to Homes for Our Troops, as usual with these fund raisers, we do not handle any of the transactions, nor the funds, all donations are entered directly to Homes for Our Troops. We only provide the excitement! Wiki progress Also, our Patriot Woodwiki is coming to be a reality soon. I have been working feverishly on article creation templates for our editors and collaborators (you) to make it easy to populate a blank page, with pre-made templates of information. All you need to do is provide the content! If you'd like to see our wiki in progress, please click on the navigation tab above titled "Wiki". There are some research projects I started already to spur activity when we do open our wiki. New members And of course, we'd like to welcome once again all our new members here to The Patriot Woodworker, we are happy to have you aboard, and we are excited to share, learn, teach, and work through this wonderful experience called woodworking! Have a wonderful week ahead folks, and don't forget to let us know what you been working on! Eye Candy Image of the week By Andy Dingley (scanner) [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons
  7. Good Monday Morning Patriot Woodworkers and Guests! Get your motors started, and your machinery and hand tools cranking! It's time for a wonderful new week of woodworking, or working, family, life and friends. I love Mondays, it signifies for me anyway a new week ahead, a clean pallet to work with, a way to use what I learned in life the week before. I am sorry about this short Monday topic, usually I have some great information for you but I kind of arose late this morning, and I need to head on out to my day job, still need to fix breakfast to go and my lunch, mama and the kids are still sleeping, one more hour before they awake for school. But for now I'd like to take a moment and welcome all our new woodworkers who have recently signed in with our community, it truly is a wonderful thing to have all this new talent here, differing perspectives, and wonderful work. So welcome new folks, we are glad you are here! Also, I'd like to encourage everyone to head on over to the Raffle Winners topic and congratulate them and thank our sponsors for their wonderful donations of tools for this raffle. The raffle was a success thanks to you all. We raised over $1,100.00 for Homes for Our Troops who build specially adaptive homes for our disabled veterans from the OEF and OIF campaigns. They are doing a wonderful job, and your donations help! So the ultimate question I always ask during this topic every Monday, is, what do you have on your week ahead plate! What are you doing in your woodshop's, or just life in general? Anything you feel like you want to discuss or share here please feel free. Have a wonderful week ahead folks, and once again, welcome to all! Signing Off With Your Monday Eye Candy Image
  8. Good Monday Morning Patriot Woodworkers! Well here we go again, another wonderful week ahead of us with time that is wide open for some of us to get the things done in our shops that need to be done. Please tell us what you have been up to lately in your shop, what you accomplished over the weekend, did you learn any new techniques in woodworking? Do you care to share a tried and true finishing schedule, or can you show us a process in your shop for executing that perfect miter joint? Whatever you have, we want to read and see it! Homes for Our Troops Fund Raiser is Falling Short Yep it's true, our HFOT fundraiser is falling way short of our goals. Considering the big ticket items up for grabs in our raffle, we have had very little participation. So I'd like to ask anyone who reads this, please get the word out by sharing this topic, or this link at HFOT Fundraiser. Our sponsors Woodcraft, Easy Wood Tools, Laguna Tools, and Bessey Tools have donated some great prizes, and they should be bringing in much more than what we've seen. So please, share away, if you have a Facebook page, please share the link above, if you have any type of social media, please share the link above, and heck, if you have not by now, please consider donating to this great cause in exchange for your raffle entries! All proceeds go directly to Homes for Our Troops, we do not handle a single penny. Thank you all for being here and please be safe in all you do!

  13. A little turning this week. I finally got a chance to finish a pen that was started in the spring. It is an older Woodcraft roller ball kit. The wood is Cocobolo and about 10 applications of BLO and CA. I didn't like the shiny finish so I added an application of Johnson's paste wax. This kit is very similar to the fountain pen kit. Which, someone liberated mine. As turners, we really seek the beauty found in spalted wood. The seemingly infinite patterns create turnings that begged to be touched. Well, now, with a little patience, you can make your own spalted wood. Unfortunately, the newsletter containing this information cannot be linked. It is from Popular Woodworking and was written by Alan Lacer, to whom I give full credit. You can sign up for the newsletter on their web site-Â http://www.popularwoodworking.com/. Here is a screenshot of the article. Tim Yoder has another video up. Make a garden "dibble". Looks like it will be a great gift for any gardener! Here is a link to the video- http://www.popularwoodworking.com/woodturning Safe Turning!
