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/

  6. Good morning to all of you Patriot Woodworkers. It is a beautiful day in east central Indiana. Low humidity, high today around 80 so it should be a great day to be in the shop building stock for summer shows. While skimming the local news site, I ran across this picture that gave me a chuckle. It looks like this dilligent mower is in immediate danger fbut hthe article said that the tornado really wasn't close and was headed away from them. None the less...... Let's hope your week isn't this exciting. So, what do y'all have going this week?
  7. Good morning folks! And what a glorious morning it is! After the long Memorial Day weekend, I'd be surprised if you all got much done in those shops, what with all the family stuff and events happening.

  8. Good Morning boys and girls. Wake up because it is Monday again. I'm filling in for the boss this morning so let's chat a bit. The weekend brought cold weather to Indiana, a new leader in France, a different Kentucky Derby winner and one day closer to the Indy 500. YAH!!!!!! This week should bring an end to my school project of cabinet building and I have toi admit that it was fun and profitable but I'm ready to move on to something that isn't birch plywood. Maybe a couple of shadow boxes. As we tear into a new week, let's hear from y'all. What did you get done over the weekend and what's on your agenda for this bright new shiny week?

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

We'd love to read and view what you all have been up to this past weekend, and what shop, or life plans you have the week ahead. So jump in, post your pics, and tell us all the big fish stories you came up with over the weekend!

We are going to figure out a way to get those blogs out front and center so our woodworkers here will be able to see the current happenings quicker and easier which should equate to more participation. I just wanted you to know, your blogs are greatly appreciated. MWTCA "What's It" random drawing It's coming!

  17. Good morning folks!! I must make this one short and sweet, just learned some mudslides from our rains are blocking my primary route to work this morning, so I need to duck out of here much earlier. So, what did you get done in your shops over the weekend, and what have you prepared to do for the week ahead? We love to hear and read, and view what you are doing in your shops, and life period.

The farm "El Patio" is one of the largest and oldest farms of Lanzarote. It was built at the beginning of the 19th century and inhabited until 1949. Now a museum, the furnishing of the rooms, kitchen, toilet, stable, wine cellar and others represents well the way of life of an agricultural worker at the beginning of the 20th century. At that time it was the best developped and largest farm on he Island of Lanzarote. 20 farmhands with 15 camels worked on the fields of this farm.
  18. Good Monday Morning! In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Many of us get to stay home from work today, I am one of them. To view a brief history of the man, please see Martin Luther King Jr. (A history.com page) We also happen to have a scroll saw pattern of this historical giant in our American culture. So I'll get to the point of this weekly topic, What did you get done in your shops over the weekend, and what plans have you for the week ahead? We've seen some great projects the past week, so we know your all busy and productive in your shops. This topic is a great place for a weekly check in, to show us what you have been up too, so please post away, images, projects, life, family, it does not have to be woodworking related, did you take a vacation? Did you see a great movie? Anything! Personally I was able to make it out to the shop yesterday and cobble together a weaved seat for the shaker stool I built a couple weeks ago. As some of you may know I had a little accident running up my stairs here at home, and I fell up the stairs and banged up my wrist pretty good. It was quite the challenge holding parts of the weave material with a bad hand and shoving the weave through with the good hand, but I got her done! You can see the stool in the Gallery. Adopt-a-Family Debrief Our 2017 Adopt-a-Warrior-Family for Christmas project has wound down, the last check of the raffle proceeds is going out to the Akin family, ma and pa Akin will have enough in the last disbursement to hire a babysitter and head out for a much needed night together and have a nice dinner. At least that is what I'll suggest they do, but more than likely they'll use if for the kids. The details and breakdown of the project and financial statement will be available this week. We'll post it in a separate topic from the project topic. Leaderboard Check out your Leader Board for some interesting statistics, it's always fun to see who or what is moving and shaking in our community. Featured blog Please check out Gerald's wonderful blog on building a cherry entertainment center! Thank you I'd like to thank everyone here who comes into our little home away from home who contributes and participates in our topics in all the areas of our woodworking community website. Our website is a tool for woodworkers to share their knowledge, lend council to other woodworkers, and to share our projects with each other. It's always nice to get an atta boy isn't it? Without you, the contributor, we don't have a community, it's because of your contributions that we are growing and becoming stronger and we are in turn able to provide some help in some way to the men and women who have served our nation. Without you, we don't have sponsors, without our sponsors, we don't have funding to stay live and aid those we can. Remember, this is a truly non profit community, nobody on our staff pockets a single penny, not even yours truly, all proceeds are used to fund our community, keep it live, and help our veterans.

  19. Good Morning Patriot Woodworker's! I'll have to keep this one short and sweet, got a sore hand and I am typing one handed here. So, first off, what have you all got going on this week in your shops? What did you do in your shops over the weekend? Please spill the beans and give us a snapshot in the life of your workshops, and even in your own non-woodwork related lives, we like to know how we are all doing these days. This last weekend nothing really got done in our own shop as we were out on the road traveling a little bit locally, in our mountains and checking out the snow and wrapping up the winter break. We hope to hear from you about your life happenings, and all your doing. Thank you for being here and thank you for your contributions to our community!

  20. Good Monday Morning Patriot Woodworker's! I am sorry but this Good Morning is going to be short and sweet than our typical informational. But we can't miss a Monday period, because we want to know how your weekends went! So how about it folks? What did you do over the weekend!!!! What did you build, what didn't you build? It was long Thanksgiving weekend, I bet not much got done as most of us were enjoying friends, family, and just taking it easy. But if you were in the shop, let's hear it! And what do you have planned for the week ahead? Thanks for being here folks, we hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend and all is well.

  21. Good Monday Morning Patriot Woodworker's! And what a grand Monday it is! With Fall in full effect, the leaves are beginning to turn, and we are on our way to the Holidays soon enough! As we ask you each Monday morning, what is on your plate for the week ahead? What did you accomplish over the weekend? Inquiring minds want to know! I was able to get a little more work down this weekend on the headrest of a Claro Walnut Rocker I am building. Soon this chair will be finished and ready to go to a new home. For a look at my headrest fabrication please see at Head Rest Fabrication. I tried to get started on a Krenov style hand plane build this weekend but it just did not happen, other things happened! New Community Features The double posting issues have been worked out, in the past contributors would hit the post button, and sometimes double posts would show up, that is no longer an issue. Bug fixed! We now have a "Cancel" button at the editor, so if you change your mind and do not want to submit that post, just click on "Cancel" and you're set to go. The navigation is much easier to use now, the tabs at the top are now out front and center, allowing you to see the various navigation tabs instead of them being buried under other tabs. If you change your password you will now be presented with an email verification to ensure you were actually the one who changed your password. Before no verification went out. We keep adding to our community, and we hope you enjoy our new upgrades and features. Thanks for all your help to everyone, for your contributions, your creative projects, your participation here, and all your wonderful personalities! Have a wonderful week ahead!

  22. Good Morning all! Here we go again, these weeks are just ticking off like crazy now, it seems just a few days ago we were celebrating the 4th of July, and here we are into Fall and heading to the Holidays! My goodness. What have yall been up too over the weekend? What did you create, what did you destroy! Did you get productive or were there just too many games on the tube to watch? How about them Cubs and Indians, whether you are a fan or not, I love the history behind these clubs and I am glad to see these guys hit the big time. This will be a fun series to watch. So, in this topic please leave us some information about your happenings the past couple days, and your plans over the next week, we love pictures so please show us what you have been up to.

  23. Good Morning All! What a glorious morning it is, and a wonderful Monday here on the west coast where temps feel more like fall, and I actually had to put a sweater on over the weekend! I love it. How have you been? What accomplishments can you brag about over the weekend? Anything is welcome here in this topic, woodworking, your team won over the weekend, a vacation you took? We are nosy, and we love pictures of your weekends. So feel free to drop us a note, and let us know how your weekend was, and what plans you may have for the week ahead, have a wonderful week Patriot Woodworker's! New feature for our community Please help us decide if we should keep the new "Forum Links" box above each forum category topic listing and posts listing. It's a quick way to get to another forum without having to back out of the current forum you are in. It is in Beta mode right now, testing and feeling if it's a good thing, or if too much is too much. Feel free to drop your feedback at Fast Jump. If we decide to keep it, we will remove the "Jump To" at the upper right area of our community. The quizzes are back! We asked Mr. Ralph Jones if he would come aboard and fire up his weekly woodworking quizzes, and he said he would! How cool is that? Since most of us are WOOD Forums leftovers, or migrators from back in the day (like myself) we are all familiar with Ralph's quizzes. Thank you Ralph for taking this job on, we appreciate you sir! Wounded warrior adopt a family project This year like last, we are embarking on a project to adopt our Wounded Warrior Family for Christmas. An organization we proudly support sponsors the Adopt a Family for Christmas project, and they reach out to us to provide a family of a Wounded Warrior the funds they need to have a Christmas. These families are in difficult times, and they need our help. We will fire this project up officially this week. There will be a raffle of some wonderful tools provided by our sponsors, and everyone is invited to participate, 100% of the proceeds will be sent to our adopted family. Follow this link to our Adopt a Family project from last year at Operation Ward 57 Adopt a Family so you can have an idea of how this works. (PLEASE CHECK BACK LATER THIS WEEK FOR DETAILS) Have a wonderful Monday folks, and keep up the great work, we are seeing some awesome work by you, and I'd like to personally thank you for helping us maintain such a warm and inviting community for all woodworkers, from all walks of life, without you, we could not be!

  24. Good Monday Morning Patriot Woodworker's! It's great to be alive, woke up this morn and found the same beautiful lady that's been next to me over the last 25 years, I still know what day it is, I counted the fingers on my hands, and I wiggled my toes, check, check and check, all is well! Time to get to work! So, what are you all up to this grand day? What have you done in your shops over the weekend? What did you do in life over the weekend? What are going to do during this coming week! We love to know, we love to keep tabs, and we also really love to see any images you may have produced over the weekend or anytime for that matter. Projects, honey-do's, heck, the ball game you went to! We'd love to see it all. So step up and show us what you have been doing. I was able to get in the shop for a spell and make some progress on a Claro Walnut Rocker, and I made pretty good progress. There is a topic for the rocker going on right now. And I spent much of the weekend getting my Professional Land Surveyors application started and on its way for me to sit for the exam in April 2017. It was a pretty busy weekend now that I think of it! Here are some happenings in your beloved TPW community.

  25. Ok folks, gotta do a quick hit and run this morning, running a tad late for work on my end! The big question of the day, what did you all get done over the weekend and what have you planned for the week ahead? We want to know how your doing in your shops, homes and gardens. Heck, even if you did nothing, let us know how you did that! Couch potato, we all do it from time to time, we had some pretty good games on this weekend and here in the west coast we got to say goodbye to one of our nations greatest baseball announcers Vin Scully, he announced Dodger games since 1950. Somewhat of a local hero in our parts. I was in the shop wrapping up some Shaker Chair Jigs, And later yesterday I was on the couch at a coffee table getting a couple chair templates wrapped up and ready for cutout. So, with that, what yall got going on! Thanks for being here and have a safe week ahead. And we can't forget our eye candy image of the week. A portable band saw! Not so portable is it.
