  1. @Woodman, what topic did this apply too?
  2. Thanks for the report guys. Let me look into this, the only forums we have mark as solution is the MWTCA What's It forum.
  3. Ye it is Gramps! And guess what, I came down with a horrible flu today, home from work trying to get well before the big day this Saturday. Timing is everything aint it? I've been pretty stressed about the whole thing, and I think my immune system took a hit.
  4. 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!

  5. Great link Static, never knew him or his site, thanks for sharing!
  6. I admire your state Gene, here our kids must attend the school they are assigned too, there has to be very strong mitigating circumstances in order to have your child attend a school outside of their district. Thus the inner city urban poor don't stand a chance.
  7. You know what Gene, looking at this box again today, you were doing infill work with composites before it became popular!
  8. Soon you'll have the Shaper Origin singing Paul! Looks like a ton o fun!
  9. We do Gene, although they are having a rough go at it, the Unions for the California Teachers are pushing hard against them, they don't like school choice. So there are few. Fortunately we have one nearby, a leadership academy that we sent our son too for his Junior high years. But it was the only one around, and it was only limited to grades 6 through 8. But hey, better than nothing! Currently there are around 1200 charters in the entire state. Many are having a hard time with funding because they do still rely on state funding to a certain extent.
  10. When you find the culprit Lew, can you please tell us what it was?
  11. Cal, in the case of our State of California, held hostage by a completely far left wing progressive party that is more extreme than most I would wager here in these forums could agree with, our capital has been under siege by a two thirds majority for as long as I can remember being interested in such subjects, the other party has absolutely zero chance of passing any laws, or influencing law, so all of our woes completely lands on the far "progressive" politicians who have run our state. And our woes completely land on the shoulders of those who voted them in. There is no middle ground in our state, only their way or the highway, and that is problem here. And that is why record numbers of Californians are fleeing our state, unfortunately though many who are fleeing are the ones who voted for these progressive policies and where ever they land in a town near you, they are voting for the same progressive politicians to ruin your villages. I disagree with the assessment that the horrors of slavery were not being taught, they sure were taught to me in the 70's and 80's when I was in school, and I agree, in our state the schools do not teach that politics is a compromise, you are right, they don't. Now that one? I have to completely disagree with you, and very respectfully sir, but I have always believe that none of this should be taught in schools, it is the responsibility of the parents to teach their own kids about sexuality, the government should not be teaching my child this, that is my job.
  12. Hey Lew, it worked for me sir, in the notification email sent to me I clicked on the Go To Post button and it brought me right to your post.
  13. Hmm, that is strange behavior, did it used to go to the exact post Lew?
  14. This is an actual excerpt from 1953 regarding what teachers shall instill in their pupils here in California, it was from the Hawthorne Intermediate School. This was passed on to me by an acquaintance who found it in her stack of papers from the day. Perhaps our school districts should get back to these core principles, because the principles being used today are not working, and they are thousands of pages long.
  15. Where did that image come from Keith, I'd like to use it in our wiki, but I need a source, thanks!
  16. I love that design! Thanks for the explanation and hope you are feeling better.
  17. You know, Jim Luley shared this story with me via Facebook messenger, and I had not put the face to your name Steven! Now it all makes sense why Jim was contacting me. What a cool thing!!!!! I got my shirt too, hey, what do you think may happen if I walk into our local car dealership with my shirt on? Thanks for sharing this cool story Steven, very nice indeed.
  18. Completely makes sense to me! I like it. The thing is, unless we try it, we'll never know if it actually ups our game, or not? If you don't know what the "upped game" looks like, and don't try it, you'll always think you are at the top of your game.
  19. 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! In my shop Well it's been a grand week leading up to this past weekend, and this weekend was just as nice as far as weather is concerned. I could not believe the quick transition from unbearably hot to a nice cool down. We went from 112 degrees to 78 degrees in a matter of two days, and what a reprieve! The cool off allowed me to return to my workspace and get a coat of finish on the wedding cross for our oldest daughter's upcoming wedding October 1st. I will have some images posted soon. Thank you all for being here, and helping our community remain interesting and full of new content submitted by all of you. And may the Good Lord Bless us all and keep us safe in our daily routines.

Thank you for making our newest folks feel welcome. Featured topic @Danl finally had a Take 2 on his Mission bedroom set, his work is clean, professional, and downright jaw dropping, wonderful job Dan! Featured link Our own @4DThinker has a wonderful blog he has maintained for years, visit at the link below. Most downloaded This modern workbench design created by the old guard of Workbench Magazine from the November-December 1965 Issue has been downloaded 88 times by members here and our guests. Featured gallery @OC3 (Glenn Davis) is a talented craftsman with a long line of projects under his belt, I have a feeling the images represented in his album here, are just the tip of the iceberg. Featured video The 50th Anniversary of the Greene and Greene's, Gamble house was back in 2016, but it's still an interesting video to watch.
  20. I know I'm running late folks, but it's time to upvote your favorite answer!
  21. of course it's worth doing! Anything to get into the woodworking world is worth doing. Dip your toes in, come up with a good plan, take your toys to craft shows and farmers markets and see how they do. I would never discourage anyone from starting a woodworking adventure, it's fun, healthy, and if you have the right formula your items will sell.
  22. I love these, very nice Static! I never seen the half moon type before, I like that concept!
  23. We are happy to announce that a very popular feature that has been missing is back with us. The developer has updated the Back to Top button and we can now use it in our community, you'll see the button at the lower right of your screen if you have scrolled down. Thanks for your patience!
  24. Way to go Pad's!!!!!!! Dodger's are our sworn enemy, always some very serious discourse among the fans in the parking lot tail gate parties
