See the tabs above, at the top of our woodworking community, there is one tab called "Wiki" Click on Wiki or see the various categories that you can click on as well to be taken directly to that area. Here is a peek at just a few areas of our wiki. Material Processing Research Portal People Research Portal Woodworking Glossary What's It Our October "What's It" is live! Surf on over and see if you can tell us what it is through research and reference. And, win a beautiful Woodriver Hand Plane by our sponsors Woodcraft Supply! Featured image of the week Source: http://thepatriotwoodwiki.org/Adze The traditional way to use an adze is to straddle the timber or log while holding the adze by its long handle and swing the adze up out in front and center to the users body, then swing the adze down to strike the timber or log. There are many ways to use a long handled adze and various stances or positions for the user to take as the work dictates. The foot adze is most commonly known as a shipbuilder’s or carpenter’s adze. They range in size from 00 to 5 being 3 1/4 to 4 3/4 pounds with the cutting edge 3 inches to 4 1/2 inches wide. On the modern steel adze the cutting edge may be flat for smoothing work to very rounded for hollowing work such as bowls, gutters and canoes. The shoulders or sides of an adze may be curved called a lipped adze, used for notching. The end away from the cutting edge is called the pole and can be of different shapes, generally flat or a pin pole.
  2. Grand Prize We are proud to offer a Woodriver No. 63 Low Angle Jack Plane to this months "What's It" winner. This months "What's It" is sponsored by our supporter Woodcraft Supply. Originally advertised as a plane for heavy stock removal across the grain, the No. 62 has found a home as a smoother and is quite popular among collectors. The WoodRiver® No. 62 is faithful to the original design, but is almost a full pound heavier at approximately 4.6 lbs. It features a body cast from ductile iron, with a bed angle of 12°, a bubinga tote and front knob, and a high-carbon steel blade with a 25° bevel. The plane measures a little less than 14" in length x 2-7/16" in width and has a 2"-wide blade.

  4. 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!

  6. 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.

As is with all these Workbench Magazine plans, they are more of a schematic than they are plans, giving you dimensions and scaled grids for your own templates.

Here is a wonderful diagram for cutting out some classic book ends for your western literature collection. I love these, they remind me of a bygone era of a classic boys room, with these cool bookends on a shelf of the wall. This plan also has a great suggestion for using molten lead for added weight of the bookends. Note the piano wire that is used for the lasso, it appears that as the cowboy draws the lasso tight, the bookends are also being drawn in to tighten upon the books!

  13. October - Wow!!!

    A couple of weeks ago I had the second surgery on my left hand due to the numbness since the first carpal tunnel surgery. I had not lost my feeling before having the first carpal tunnel surgery, but I was experiencing problems holding things and doing certain task with that hand. I knew it was time to get it corrected since I work at a keyboard all day everyday when I am not in the shop doing woodworking. So long story, after the first surgery my left hand was numb in my thumb, pointer and middle finger and across my palm. The only thing really working was my ring finger and pinky. after waiting six weeks for the feeling to return, I had the nerve tested and it was all good. The Dr. went back in to see what was causing the numbness and opened up the tunnel even further. When I came to and everything wore off, I was still numb in all the same places. So I have been off a bit as typing is difficult and several other task are also. But October was a busy month for us and my wife has turned into quite the woodworker. We have been making cutting boards, bread boards and cheese boards along with some other projects we have had. Not sure what i would do without her. Here are a few pictures of our outdoor booth at First Friday in October. We change the color and display of the tables with the seasons. Large End Grain Boards. We use a few of our picking items and antiques along with some of my planes for the display. It gets people to stop and them we get to talk to them. Medium boards and Edge grain boards. I found that piece of live edge in the shop and thought it was maple until I ran it through the planer. i think it is chestnut. Anyway, it was the first item to sell. Bread and Cheese boards I was at a show a few months back and these bracelets were the thing. I bought one for my wife from a woodworker that was setup. When I got back i got with a friend of mine that turns and told him he should do some of these, I didn't have time. So he did and we have sold a bunch of them. Those three pieces of walnut were cutoff pieces I was going to through away Beth saw them and ran them through the planer and sanded them, oiled and sold them right off. You just never know what will sell. The next day we setup in another location for Octoberfest. We went out before First Friday and setup our tent so it would be ready for 6:00 am Saturday morning. So now we are getting ready for the 27th Jack Daniels Championship BBQ Invitational cookoff that will be on the 24th of October. So October has so far been WOW!!!! I did work in building this Medieval Embroidery Frame for my physical therapist. Even though my hand is still numb, we have been really busy and getting some work out of the shop. Please keep my in your prayers that I will get my feeling back soon or that i just get my feeling back. As i said typing is very difficult right now as i am not used to one finger typing. But I am trying to remain positive and move forward.
