  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! Today is a day of reflection for our family, and also a chance to unite and be in each others presence. We are going to do the traditional barbecue but only with the four of us, mama and me, our son and our oldest daughter, our youngest girl is in the Army and away, so we are missing her always and our elderly relatives are staying put in their homes. This will be the first Memorial Day that our baby girl is not with us, and these firsts will continue as along as she is in the Army and away from us. From what our soldier tells us, the command is creating a nice day of barbecue and camaraderie for the troops and their families on base with flags flying half mast. Yesterday myself, mama and our two remaining kids, hiked the woods and enjoyed some peaceful scenery. We walked and walked, until we came upon a thin narrow trail with a sign at the entrance, that stated "Mountain Lion sighted May 21, proceed with caution". We decided to not proceed, in our experience and exposure to this area, our lions can be very aggressive and groups of people don't seem to phase them much anymore, so we just turned around and headed back. But not before me and mama got a picture! The Morris family wishes you all the best today, please be safe, stay sane, and if you are away from home and may have indulged in the fun a little too much, please call a taxi, or ask a sober friend to drive home. Have a good, meaningful Memorial day!

  2. 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! This past weekend was a bunch of errands for me, doc appointments all day Friday, then running around town Saturday with my daughter to pick up painting supplies for her room, and we helped grandma with moving a tv up to her front room, and Sunday I took a breather and got lazy, watched The Patriot with my son, and I viewed YouTube videos on Longrifle building. I did walk out to my shop and I went through the contents of a Kennedy machinists chest and it was filled with mainly watchmaker supplies. I have three of these chests that I inherited a couple years ago. The chest are really nice, high quality. The contents are interesting and I may be able to use quite a few of the relics in my upcoming gunsmithing agenda.

  7. Friday May 1st 2020, Good Morning Everyone! We made it through April! For a change it's not raining here "Two Weeks From Anywhere" in S.E Wisconsin, and the SUN IS SHINING! For those of you still doing those "Essential Jobs" we again Thank, and Salute You. Some states are lifting their "Stay At Home" restrictions, and allowing some business's to reopen. So for those of you returning to work we hope you stay well. As for us we intend to continue practicing safe social distancing, and continue following "The Cool School Mule's" advice. "Be Cool, Don't Be A Fool, Wear Your Face Mask" Once the lakes in our yard subside I'll be trying to get some yard work done. So what's on your weekend agenda?
  8. Here we are folks another Friday. Not much to report here from Wisconsin, it's just another rainy grey gloomy colder than average day. For those of you deemed "Essential" workers we again salute you. So what have you got planned for the upcoming weekend? Hopefully you're getting some cooperative weather to do outside things.

  11. Well here it is Good Friday, and we've made it through another week of "Social Distancing". Here in Wisconsin the Governor has ordered the State Parks closed due to vandalism beginning today. People have been trashing the parks, stealing the Toilet Paper, and Hand Sanitizers from the public bathrooms. We also had to go out and vote on Tuesday due to the state legislature refusing to allow the voting date to be moved. We won't know the results of voting until Monday the 13th so the absentee ballots that were postmarked before midnight the 7th can get counted. Many people that requested absentee ballots didn't receive them in time to use them. We had a very nice day on Tuesday, and the poll workers really stepped up to insure those in the lines by 8:00 PM got to exercise their right to vote. My hat is off to them. Now we're back to colder than average weather with snow in the forecast Sunday night into Monday. My hat is also off to those of you that are still doing those essential jobs that help keep the rest of us going. It can't be easy dealing with some of the inconsiderate people out there. Thank You, and hopefully you will stay well. So how was your week, and what have you got planned for this Easter weekend?
  12. Happy Birthday! Dear folks, I'd like to give a huge shout and a big Happy Birthday to our entire Patriot Woodworker Community. Today, April 3rd, 2020. We are 10 years old. Thank you! I want to thank all the members here who make this community what it is, and I especially want to thank our Administrators Ron Dudelston and John Moody and our Forum Hosts, Lew Kauffman, Gene Howe, and Larry Buskirk for keeping this community organized and tidy, and for being helpful to the members who frequent these pages and forums. Your support We also need to thank our community of woodworkers, for coming to the aid of the causes we support, from our annual fundraisers to help The Patriot Woodworker Forums stay live to the most important thing we do, supporting our veterans in need. When called upon, you all have stepped up to the plate, and participated in our fundraising events to help our veterans and their families to have a Wonderful Christmas in our annual Adopt a Wounded Warrior Family for the Holidays event, where you all step up and donate funds in order to provide a wonderful Christmas for a veteran family. We cannot thank you enough! My thanks to you This has been a journey for me personally, starting a community based on a duty to help those who serve our nation, and our love of everything woodworking. I have met many wonderful people here, and many have become friends. I have grown because of this group, I have matured in ways I never thought existed, I have rejoiced with your wins in your woodworking journey and life events, and I have felt sadness with you in some not so pleasant life events, we have lost a few Patriots on the way, and they'll be remembered always. I am a better person because of my experience here, with you. I owe all of you that. And, to my family, especially my wife for putting up with countless hours of looking at the back of my head while I sit here maintaining our community, interacting with you all, and also while having fun in my own online woodworking endeavors, thank you Wife! If anyone would like to read how we started out as a community, feel free to read the long boring story that can be found at: And we cannot say enough thanks to the folks who support our community and keep us live, by their incredible generosity in sponsorship. To the fine folks at Woodcraft, Easy Wood Tools, and Laguna Tools, we thank you. You have been with us nearly since our inception, and each year you step up to the plate, and help us pay our fees and dues and you contribute product for our raffles and other community events that help support the men and women who wear the uniform of our American Armed Forces, and the Veterans who come out of it all. Thank you!

  14. Probably a "Stupid" question as we make our way through the Pandemic gripping the world today, but just had to ask. As to us here "Two Weeks From Anywhere" the wife had to go to the Doctor yesterday, no we don't have it, Don't want it. She started having breathing problems a couple of days ago, luckily she decided better get it checked before she ended up in the hospital where we know they do have it. Turns out her Bronchitis got triggered by the "Rust Dust Pollen" our Norway Spruce trees started dumping earlier this month when we got our first, and last 60° day. She's now on a couple of meds including the boss's @John Morris favorite.. Prednisone. This isn't going to be fun. Sure is strange going out with all the closed places. So how are Ya'll dealing with the sudden strangeness of the world around us today?
  15. Good Monday Morning! Good Monday morning Patriot Woodworkers! What do you accomplish over the weekend? I'm filling in for the boss this morning. In this wacky , unpredictable world we all need a sanctuary like a shop to distract us, at least for a while. What have you built? I am a little curious about one thing. We are being advised to stay home and isolate ourselves from the public especially if you're over 60. Are you isolating? If so, how are you keeping busy? Please share your secrets. New Members Please welcome to our community,, please click on their names and leave a message of welcome on their profile page. And welcome to our newest member, @AmyMNM. Welcome to your new community! Isolation Pictures Last week, my daughter called and asked if I'd conduct "shop" class for my three granddaughters. I really think mom needed a break. The girls are 19 (college freshman), 17 (high school junior) and 13 (8th grade) wanted to build either a bird house or a bird feeder. Here is a picture of the school session. Notice that there are no air tools, all fingers are in tact and I could keep safety glasses on at least two of them. Valerie got a letter grade cut. Post your isolation picture below folks!

By Peter Follansbee "The ease of working green wood is one of the benefits of working this way; it cuts much easier than wood that has lost most of its moisture. As wood dries, it becomes tougher & tougher to cut. That green wood can be easily riven along its fibers is an additional benefit; with a carefully selected tree, you can produce your rough-dimensioned stock quickly & easily right from the log – with a good deal of careful practice. Once the log is on the ground, one person can reduce the log into working stock right where it was felled, if needed. Working just with wedges, maul, maybe a hatchet here & there, and a saw for some cross-cuts, splitting stock out is very appealing work. It’s very physical, gets you outdoors, working in the woodpile or woods, instead of inside the shop. The other day I was working some stock outside on the best type of New England day there is, cool fall weather, golden sunshine filtering through the last few leaves on the maples…" Quote by Peter Follansbee
