  1. Our Wiki Wood Data Base

    I am hoping to enlist some extra eyes on this dilemma we are facing with creating certain departments in our wiki. I am currently working on our own wood data base. We all know about the popular and famous "The Wood Database". But in an effort to create one of our own, I need to use the terminology and listings of the properties of the wood. The Wood Database does have all of this, I could copy their structure and format. But I won't and can't. Because well, that would be copying. So in order to be original, and our wiki based on independent "Open Source" research, I need to find a website or research portal that does show those properties such as Tree Size, Specific Gravity, Crushing Weight etc, without scraping the information from a privately owned website. So I am looking for a govt website, or other open source website that I can use for my research in formatting the application that you, the user will use to fill out the menus for the properties of the lumber, and also you'll be able to geolocate the wood species to a world map, and provide an image as well. If anyone comes across an open sources website for research on lumber and wood species that talks about hardness scales, and specific gravity etc, I'd sure appreciate you sharing it to me. Thanks for any help! I know our wiki has been a long work in progress, but it's coming along, at http://thepatriotwoodwiki.org/HomePage It's turned out to be a long term project, I hope to have it open soon for all of you to contribute your factual knowledge too.
  2. The Patriot Woodwiki

    Ya'll ready for a wiki!!! We are making great progress, we'll be open soon and ready for your contributions! It's kind of empty right now, but once you start using it and creating research pages in the realm of woodworking, it should fill up fast and be a valuable tool for woodworkers all over. To see some of the areas we have prepared you can go to The Patriot Woodwiki Home Page And you can follow a few of these links as well for some wiki page samples we have created for you to use as inspiration for your own wiki projects. http://thepatriotwoodwiki.org/Sam+Maloof http://thepatriotwoodwiki.org/James+Krenov http://thepatriotwoodwiki.org/Adze And here is a look at some of our portals, where you can start your projects. http://thepatriotwoodwiki.org/Material Processing http://thepatriotwoodwiki.org/People http://thepatriotwoodwiki.org/Works Our wiki is an open source project, and we used open source (free) software, which has provided some wonderful challenges just to get it to fit our needs. We hope when we do open (soon!), you'll jump in and share your knowledge, and contribute some wonderful research projects for our woodworking world to view and edit. Cheers!

  4. 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
  5. Good Monday Morning Patriot Woodworker's!!! Well, what have yall been up to this past weekend? Did you get some time in the shop? Did you go somewhere special? Or, if it was hot enough in your area, you may have just felt like staying in your home with the air conditioner cranked up and watch some great movies or read a good book! The later was us, my family and I kind of just closed up our home and took it easy, cranked the air conditioner to 78 degrees and hung out with each other, while it was not woodworking related, my son and I had a marathon model building day on Saturday. Our son was building a Stearman WWII PT-27 flight trainer. And I was building a F-14D Tomcat as seen in the image below, we had a dinner table full of model stuff! After working all week long at my day job, outdoors in 104 plus degree weather, I was ready to just call our weekend a shut-in. We did however go for a few bicycle rides locally while the sun was setting, although it was still in the high 90's around that time! But we had to get outside. Charles Nicholls Our Forum Host Charles is finally out of the hospital, for some great news! He is still hurting a tad, and unable to get back to his wood turning as full speed, but he is managing some pen turnings. It's great to have ya back Charles! The Patriot Woodwiki status I know I know! It's been forever since we had this brilliant idea to fire up a wiki for our forum and community, and you have all heard, "it's almost ready" many many times. The wiki software is a different animal, challenging and time consuming and it's just taken a lot longer to get under control than I had estimated. But we are closer than ever! I worked on some more user templates for research article creation this weekend, and I started another seed page for folks to edit and collaborate on. You can view the seed page at Easy Wood Tools. I created a new category called "Merchants" for our researchers and editors to share their subjects regarding the retailers and merchants in the woodworking trades, arts and crafts arena. The MWTCA What's It Don't forget folks, we still need your help to figure out what the heck these implements are! Remember, when you correctly name the implements, you'll be awarded a 1 year membership to MWTCA. Click on the following links. June What's It July What's It Cool Image of the Week So that's if for now folks, have a wonderful Patriot Woodworker week ahead! We wish you the best in life, and be safe in your shops and remember, safety first! If your woodworking operation feels uncomfortable, then it's unsafe!
  6. First off I'd like to thank all the folks who participated on our Hand Plane Specifications Sheet Template for our new wiki. Now I have another mission I'd like ya'lls help on, I am looking for the main woodworking machinery categories. Just the main ones, we can talk about sub categories at a later date. Of course this is for our new wiki project. Here is what I have thus far. If you feel any of the categories I have so far can be consolidated further, please advise. I look forward to anyone's input and interest! We are looking for any missed categories from what you see below. Main Machinery Categories Band Saws Boring Dovetailers Drill Presses Dust Collectors Grinders Lathes Miter Saws Molders Mortisers Multi Purpose Planers Power Feeders Radial Arm Saws Sanders Shapers Table Saws Tenoning

  8. Good Monday Morning folks! We hope you all had a wonderful weekend and a safe one as well! I was in the shop part of Saturday building a couple jigs for some up coming chairs I am making. The one main jig is called a Side Rung Mortising Jig for the back and front seat posts to accept the side rungs of the post and rung chairs at the correct angles. Here is a picture of the jig being used by the author of the book I am using as a guide called "Chair Making Simplified" by Kerry Pierce. We also want to know in this topic, what did you all get done over the weekend! In life and in the wood shop, share your time with us here, and post some images of your work, or your travels! Charles Nichols Site Host Charles is still in the hospital and recovering from his surgeries, he has been plagued by issues for years and we all pray and hold him in our thoughts. He is not making it here too often these days but he is communicating with friends and family via Facebook, if you'd like to leave a message of good thoughts you can do that at his original post at Hospital Round Two or at his Facebook Page. Our Wiki The Patriot Woodwiki is shaping up, I am working on some templates that are pre-filled out for research page starters for each category. Our members and guests only need to enter the title of the research page they want to create, then click on the ready made template with headers and directions for creating a great wiki page, and that template will populate their article, and then they can manipulate the article as they see fit. We also installed a wonderful interactive map for our wiki at Geolocated Wiki Pages. You can click on a red icon and see the link to the related wiki page. The red marker is placed in a specific location according to the wiki page content. If the page is about a person, the red marker will be in either the location they were born, or the location they died. If the wiki article is about a college for example the red marker will be in the location of the college. If you go to the map, see the red marker in Northern California, and click on the red marker to see a link to "College of the Redwoods". Our Member Map Our Member map has a new default look to it, you can see the satellite imagery of our world at Member Map. You can still view the world with borders, countries, and streets, but the new default imagery just makes it fun. MWTCA We also have a new MWTCA "What's It" for the month of July, check it out and try your hand at historical research into these fascinating old tools and implements, and win yourself a membership to the MWTCA while your at it! I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead and be well, and be safe!
  9. Good Monday morning woodworkers! Well out here in the west we are dealing with sweltering heat and it's hard to even get out and cut grass these days. We'll wait until the sun sets then make a mad dash out and run the mower. The shop is a nice and toasty 90 degrees so it's a tad warm in the old woodshop as well but at least it's in the shade. So, what have you all been up to this weekend in your woodworking endeavors? Please post your pics and stories about your weekend here so we can follow your progress and chime in. Charles Nicholls We have a Patriot Woodworker in the hospital right now, Charles Nichols is dealing with some surgery and discomfort so if you'd like, please drop on by his topic and wish him well at Charles in Hospital. Website FUBAR We had a FUBAR this past weekend, long story short our server was having some issues so you may have noticed our site was down for a while, we apologize for that, there may be some more interruptions this coming week as we work on securing our site with security patches and upgrades and our site is being moved yet again to a server. So please bear with us and thank you in advance for your patience. Homes for Our Troops We are also kicking off another raffle fundraiser for Homes for Our Troops starting appropriately on 4th of July. We'll have some terrific tools up for grabs donated to us for this purpose by our wonderful sponsors. So stay tuned for that! Our Wiki Our Patriot Woodwiki is taking shape as we put the final touches on the user interface and we should finally be opening our wiki up for public collaboration and editing and sharing. Below are a few of the "seed" articles that we planted to give our wiki a jump start and to encourage folks to jump in and contribute their knowledge. Please see links below. Wiki Seed Pages Adze College of the Redwoods Sam Maloof That's that run down for now folks, have a wonderful week ahead and stay safe in all you do, and please keep coming back and share your stories, life, and work with us here at The Patriot Woodworker.
  10. Good Monday Morning! And what a wonderful week we are heading into. Firstly, what have you been up to over the weekend, what accomplishments, or setbacks have you run into in your shop? Or in life! Whatever they may be we'd love to see some images and we'd love to read about your adventures over the weekend and for the week ahead. As far as your beloved Patriot Woodworker community is concerned we have a couple things brewing as of late.   Just in case you have not noticed, over the last few months we have had a re-appearing link at the top of our navigation bar here on our website and it is titled "Wiki (Under Construction)". If you click on that link it will take you to The Patriot Woodwiki. This is our official wiki portal for our community here. We are finally coming down the home stretch to opening our knowledge base portal. The portal still needs some work, but we are on the way to opening soon.   Here are a few links of interest: The Patriot Woodwiki What is a Wiki?   The Patriot Woodwiki will be open to all for editing, collaboration, creation and sharing. The wiki is by default a software that allows anonymous entries and editing, so you don't even need to be signed in! In other words it's an open knowledge base open to the world. But, we do hope folks will sign in and leave their mark for the creations and editing they perform. Currently a separate sign in is required, but we are working on a single sign in, so if you login here at The Patriot Woodworker, or there at The Patriot Woodwiki, you'll be signed in to both. That will come later.   Also   We have fired up the MWTCA "What's It" campaign to help encourage membership and the preservation of historical hand tools and implements. More information can be found at the MWTCA topic here in our community. We will be coming up with the first What's It later this week! So stay tuned!   So that is the excitement for us here in TPW, back to you, what's on your plate for the week and what did you do in your shop over the weekend? Have a terrific week!  
  11. Id' like to thank the folks who participated in the first research question as seen at as posted by member Courtland. And now we have another question to spur the creative juices in a woodworker's heart. Let's talk about categories, main categories, if you were given 9 categories to define woodworking, what would they be? These 9 categories should be incredibly general, as there can be endless sub categories. For example, (not in any particular order) Industry (the world in woodworking, business, transportation of wood, milling, management) Technology (tools, machinery, advancements, etc) History (from the cavemen to modern day woodworkers, how did we get to where we are at today) People (basically famous folks, Tage Frid, Nakashima, etc.) Botany (the wood, it's uses, ratings of usefulness, types of wood, trees and more) Media (magazines, shows, advertising campaigns from the past, old labels, decals, graphic arts) (For a category I need one word that describes what woodworkers make, ie: cabinets, art, crafts, furnishings) (Empty) (Empty) Get the idea? If you can, try to stay away from narrowing down the discipline, that is what sub categories are for. We are looking for big generalizations for categories. Feel free to substitute anything we have on that category list thus far, this is only a sample. Thank you once again for your time and thought on this project.
