  1. Good Monday Morning Patriot Woodworker's! Here we go onward to another fantastic week of woodworking, life, living, and sharing and learning from our fellow woodworkers! What have you all been up to over the weekend, and what have you planned for the week ahead? Put it all out there, anything is game! The rounding plane (image left), or tenon cutter, will be a new tool in my shop. I have been diving into building chairs and stools that require a round tenon. Since my lathe turning is a tad rough these days, and I am having a hard time cutting a consistent and accurate 5/8" tenon, I went ahead and purchased a 5/8" rounding plane made by Ray Iles, the cost was reasonable for a hand made tool at $65.95 and well worth the price to get those great fitting tenons. Latest News Ralph Jones is the recipient of an Honor Flight trip to Washington D.C. this April the 15th. Congratulations Ralph! To read more on Honor Flights please see this link at https://www.honorflight.org/ As many of you may know, Herb, or better known as "Dadio" was the winner of last months MWTCA "What's It" project. Our current project is coming to a close soon, to view our current project, please go to the project as linked below and jump in and participate before this months project ends, and you could win a one year membership to MWTCA.

  2. Good Morning Friends, What method would you use when cutting true miters on your table saw?
  3. Good Morning Patriot Woodworker's and Guests and Viewers! And what a glorious Monday it is. Well here we are, embarking on yet another great week in our community for sharing, learning, collaborative efforts and just flat out fun and interest. So to the question of the day, what did you do this past weekend and what have you planned for the week ahead? Your replies could be anything regarding woodworking of course, and anything regarding life for certain! We know we are not woodworkers 24/7, many of us have a life outside of woodworking (really?) and we take trips, have other plans with the family, and we may even be dealing with some not so wonderful realities of life, we'd love to read and share that as well. So have at it folks, anything goes, what'd ya do, and what ya doing! Recent happenings Per @Stick486 suggestion for a new sub-forum for our MWTCA projects, we now have a sub-forum live dedicated to the MWTCA What's It project. Thanks Stick! Our blogs, don't forget folks we have a wonderful blogging area for our community, and some nice projects have rolled in recently at Blogs. And for a quick run down on how to use our blogging platform, you can see how at "How to Create a Blog". On a side note: do you know a friend who loves to blog about woodworking? Do you know a professional blogger for woodworking who would like their content to be seen by thousands? Shoot him our way, we'd love to host their blog with us. Moaners and Groaners and Other Dribble and Useless Conversation and Other Drivel topics are long, fast, and fun! Please keep it tame, I was perusing the topics a few days ago and I had to remove some posts due to violations of our Guidelines. Removal of posts in those particular forums will happen without warning and without explanation if they violate any of our Guidelines. It's a pretty big job keeping tabs on the woodworking portion of our community without having to worry about a completely off-topic discussion and if there are violations within it. Thank you all for your understanding! Featured Gallery Check out this wonderful military art work by @oleglenn. And while you are there, see his other albums a well. He's a busy man at that scroll saw!

  4. Good Morning Friends, Well another Saturday has come around and today's quiz is; What are four easy dado joints you can make with your table saw?
  5. Good Morning Friends, Well another Saturday has arrived and time for the quiz; This one is for you turners and anyone else who can answer it. How does one stop end grain bowl blowout? Pictures would be nice.
  6. Good Monday Morning folks! What's on your woodworking agenda for the week ahead, and what did you get done in the shop over the weekend! My son and I worked on his science project for school. So we knocked our heads together and came up with an age old test, End grain or Edge grain, Which Provides the Strongest Glue Joint? We assembled his experiment, and performed the test, and now he is creating the display board that all the science is displayed on and his research along with some photos of the actual experiment, one image seen below, guess which glue joint won? The break test that was performed for each joint. So, tell us how your weekend went, and what you got planned ahead, woodworking, or not! Thank you all for being here.

  11. Good Monday Morning Patriot Woodworkers and Guests! Now that we are all waking up to a "normal" week, without football hype, interviews of players, betting, and the constant barrage of geographical reviews of San Fransisco, we can get back to what really matters in life, woodworking! That being said, my son and I were on opposite sides of the Superbowl, I had to root for the Broncos, my boy on the other side, he's already an independent thinker at the ripe old age of 11. I was happy for Manning, and on the other side I was also rooting for a Panther win because of Bruce DeHaven, the Panthers special teams coach, he was diagnosed with an un-curable form of prostate cancer, and he coached through the last season like a champ, and he is loved and well respected by his players. I really also wanted a win for him as this will be his last year. This past weekend I have been tasked by my oldest daughter to make 40 awards for her Veterans and Patriot Tigers club she heads up on her high school campus. My family was at a Homes for Our Troops event on Saturday leaving me in the shop to get the awards started. Our girls club is going to present the awards to all the staff members in our school district who are Veterans at a special dinner that the students organized for the staff. Each award will be different. None alike. I have done these before and the recipients love them. I'll chop them out of these boards and slabs and shave and chip till they are ready. Then I'll mount some engraved tags and branch of service medallions on the face of each one. We have some California Live Oak, Apple, Claro Walnut, and Black Cherry. All left from prior projects. What a great way to use leftovers, in wonderful projects like this. Respecting the tree it all came from, and by giving each veteran a unique symbol of thanks. So this coming week I'll be splitting and hacking at these slabettes (not a real word, but hey, it works!) and cutoffs in order to come up with some unique awards for our veterans. How about you all? What you got coming up this week? Our Admin John Moody gotyall fired up for the weekend, and we are being nosy about your work week now!
  12. Good Monday morning Patriot Woodworkers! Here we go again, off to a new week, a new start and a new week to make sawdust, create works of art, wrap up honey do lists, and if your like me, make firewood! For our family the hustle and bustle of the Holidays and the following weeks are just winding down now, since our two oldest daughters both had birthdays in two weeks consecutively and both the birthdays were party worthy because of the important year, our youngest daughter turned 15, a very big birthday for the culture my wife is from, and our oldest girl turned 18. Now that the parties are over, and our home is back to a dull roar I'll be able to get back in the shop and start up on some of my projects. Meanwhile I have been getting my woodworking fix by vicariously living through others and their artistry. One of those being a group of folks who make Windsor chairs. It's a relatively small community of chair makers and they are wonderful folks, they have a great appreciation for quiet shops, full of hand tools and tradition, and they are a very helpful community willing to jump in and help anyone make their Windsor chair. Here are a couple links to some of the makers I have been visiting: Ellia Bizzarri Curtis Buchanan Jock Jones Arrow Back Arm Chair by Jock Jones My head is wrapping around the idea of a quiet shop as I have begun the mental process of coming to terms of a quiet shop and what it means to run on human power, and the Windsor chair among many other projects are well suited to the quiet suburban shop of today. In addition to the Shaker Round Box projects I posted about a few weeks ago, I think the Windsor chair would make a great addition to the inventory of hand made projects to have in an inventory for market. They just seem to go together so well. So, what is on your week's agenda folks! It can't all be work, I know we have some retirees here as well who are able to continue their woodworking through the week. Not me, I still have quite a few years before I am in that camp, so for now I'll sign off and head out the door to work, and leave this community in the wonderful hands of those who are able to visit throughout the day. Cheers!
