  1. Good Monday Morning! Good Monday morning Patriot Woodworkers! What did you get done over the weekend, and what have you planned for the week ahead! Inquiring minds want to know. Please tell us what's happening in your shops, your life, and any events going on with you. Thank you for being here folks! Happy New Year! 2018 has been a wonderful year for The Patriot Woodworkers, and the reason is you. You, the member, the guest, the forum host, our sponsors, the admins, everyone who touches this community in some way or form contributes to the success of this online community. And we thank you! To our members, thank you for being here, day in and day out, contributing, learning, mentoring, collaborating, and for passionately supporting the men and women who serve our nation through our fundraisers and projects. To our guests, thank you for being here and visiting our community, you are a very important part of our growing online community, you visit, you read, and you share with others thus in turn attracting more folks to visit us. When you are ready, we would love to have you here, so please consider Signing Up and connecting with some wonderful folks and woodworkers! To our sponsors, thank you Woodcraft, Laguna Tools and Easy Wood Tools, for your support of our community and our veterans and military projects we are involved in throughout the year. You are completely appreciated, and you are not taken for granted, our economy can roll up and down and sideways, and we completely understand that financial support of our community can dry up in a heartbeat with the tough business decisions you have to make. So we thank you sponsors, from the bottom of our hearts, for financing this online community. NOTE: We currently have three sponsors of our woodworking community, between them we raise around $3400.00 for the entire year, that is our gross income for The Patriot Woodworker, our sponsors funds help pay our hosting fees, software licensing fees, outside development fees, and we manage to have enough left over to help a few very deserving veterans in need with woodworking tools, supplies and assistance. By the end of the year, we are pretty much zeroed out, with a few dollars left in our account. If you would like to sponsor our woodworking community, or if you have connections with a retailer (who will not conflict with our current sponsors) we would love to bring you or them aboard! Ok, that was my shameless plug for the year!

Merry Christmas to all Patriot Woodworkers and guests alike. So, here we are, a day after Christmas and I completely forgot to get our Monday topic live, as I do weekly.

I'd like to say thank you to all for being here, and sharing your lives and shops with us, we are forever grateful for the folks who keep our forums live and interesting. And we hope you all have a very Merry Christmas! Under the Christmas Tree So Patriot Woodworkers, what did you all get under the tree this Christmas, I'll go ahead and kick it off! My family purchased this wonderful restored fully usable set and sharpened Warranted Superior saw for me, this is a beaut! I love it. They also presented me with this wonderful old book all about North American woods and trees, and their use in the trades and crafts woodworking industry. I love these old books, I use them as a resource for our Patriot Woodwiki that we have been building, and the family knows I love to read these books. I can't get enough of them. This books was copyright is 1951 and it is still viable today, why wouldn't it be, trees have not changed in the last 60 years have they? The book is called American Woods, and was written by Shelley E. Schoonover (Regional Fiscal Agent (retired) United States Forest Service).

  6. Typically our Monday morning topic is filled with questions on what we all did over the weekend, what we have planned for the week ahead, and we will welcome our new members and share stories. But I woke up to come on here before I head off to work for the day, and upon turning on the morning news, I learned about the mass shooting in Las Vegas. So I am here writing now, and I cannot find the heart nor the words to start off our typical Monday Morning topic with words of cheer and happiness. But, that does not mean you cannot participate in this topic, to let us know what you did over the weekend, and what you have planned for the week ahead. Actually, I hope you do, perhaps I can turn to our membership for some cheer and uplifting remarks in this time of darkness for our nation. I am saddened, and hurt. The sounds of the gunfire coming from the building above the concert crowd, will forever be in my mind, knowing that the bullets were striking innocents below. So I'll turn this topic over to you my friends, and I'll head off to work in a few minutes, just like any "normal day", meanwhile the lives of many have been changed forever in our nation, as a result of the largest mass shooting in our nations history. May God shine His grace on all those affected by this tragic event and may He take those who's lives have ended, into His arms.

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/

  15. 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?

  22. 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.

  23. 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!

  24. 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.

  25. Good Monday Morning Patriot Woodworkers! What's on your agenda for the week, and what did you do over this past weekend! 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! Blogs We get a ton of outside views for our blogging area, but our inside participation is lacking, so for those of you who are blogging, please keep it up, you are being read, and you are getting a ton of love from our fence sitting lurkers and passerby's. 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! For those who participated in the current months "What's It", you will all be entered into a random drawing for a calendar year membership to MWTCA and all its benefits. Leader Board Stick is still out performing everyone in the popularity contest around here, how does that happen! Check out your Leader Board! Thank you for being here folks, and have a wonderful week ahead! Eye candy image of the week Source: http://www.claysmithguns.com/
