  1. Memorial Day This is not a day of celebration, this is not a day to say "Happy Memorial Day", as we often see the banners streaming across the door way of a big box store, or your car dealers lot, "Happy Memorial Day!". My friends, there is nothing happy about it. This day is not a happy occasion to celebrate. It is a day of solemn remembrance for those who gave their lives under the banner of our nation. I am taken back by the celebratory mood that surrounds one of the most profound annual holidays in our nations docket of patriotic remembrances. Photo: 16-year-old Deandra Christiansen, whose veteran father, Eric Christiansen, passed away in April 2013 at the age of 45. The teenager was among hundreds of relatives who gathered at Great Lakes National Cemetery in Holly, Michigan. Memorial Day, a day of memorializing the men and women who died while in service. This is a serious day, a day that, in a perfect world we should never have to recognize. But the reality is our country has been at the tip of the spear in conflicts around the world since the time of our existence as a nation. And we have lost many Americans. In today's challenging domestic environment it's even more crucial than ever to give our attention to the service members who have given all to our nation in order to ensure that the citizens of our nation can go about our daily lives, living and enjoying the fruits of labor that our military and the men and women who serve have provided, and continue to provide. All too often many people in our nation will forget what this day is all about, the youth today are losing sight of what it means to give, to sacrifice, to put the person standing beside them first, instead of putting themselves first. As adults, we need to remind our youth constantly that we live in a very exceptional country, and they should take nothing for granted. We should teach them the importance of our military, and we should remind them that if for one day our military stopped working, that would be the day life as they know it would change in an instant. Our enemies would exploit the weakness, and over run our shores. Our military is a great wall, a barrier between us and the bad actors of the world. Sometimes our military has to take the fight to them, instead of letting them come here to our nation. And our men and women have given their lives on some far off piece of land in order to ensure our safety here at home. We need to drive that message home to our own kids, their friends, and even often times, the adults around us. Photo: Christian Golcyznski accepts his fathers flag, Christian is one youth who will never forget the true meaning of Memorial Day. Lets enjoy the day off, lets enjoy being in the company of the ones we love, but the whole while, lets not let the feeling of solemness, and remembrance leave our hearts. We owe those who are no longer with us, that. Just one day is all they are asking. Memorial Day, May 28th 2018. I pray that God will keep in a very special place those who died in service and long after, for they are the ones who gave of themselves selflessly, and they will be "Forever Young". And we'd like to ask all who read this to pray or offer a word of thanks at your barbecue for our troops both past and present, and set out an empty table setting over an empty chair at your dinner table, in memory, and in hope that our men and women serving today will always return home safe, and whole in mind and body. Also may God Bless our great and very special nation, and may He protect those in harms way as they serve our country and its people today, and into the future. Posting in this topic Please post your feelings and memories in this topic, also please post the names and images of loved ones and friends lost during military service. Thank you all for being here, and helping us preserve the memories of those who served.

  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.

Please tell us what's happening in your shops, your life, and any events going on with you. Thank you for being here folks! Community News We have a new footer area at the bottom of our website, the old footer was outdated and non-functional from a maintenance stand point of view, and the original developer of the footer area upgraded the software to work with our core software upgrade that took place last week. You may see the new footer at the bottom, just scroll down, and view. At the very bottom I have placed some modules that show off who we are, along with a mission statement and a couple other articles, just click on the images to be taken to the full article.

  4. I'm sure happy that the elections here in Indiana are over for 6 months. I'm the chairman of the local election board and it has been a very long week that started last Thursday. Even with the election process going on, I was able to spend some time with my son tearing down his newly purchased house. Yesterday marked 6 weeks since we started the de-construction process and with any luck the structure will be on the ground next Monday. The pictures below show our progress as of tonight. The roof is off half the house and hopefully it will be totally off by Saturday. Not much shop time this week and none scheduled for the weekend. So, here's the question Patriot Woodworkers, "What's on your weekend agenda?"

  8. It is Friday already! It seemed that Fridays came slowly when I was working but now they're here before I realize it. Its been a busy week here in the Heartland. I drove across state this week and picked up a new HVAC system that will be installed next week, continued deconstructing a house with my son (we're down to bare studs on the interior), and I've spent a ton of ton studying to teach our Sunday School class. In my spare time I finished a cabinet for my daughter and built a couple of window sashes for a friend. My daughter has a small utility room that houses her water softener and the middle granddaughter has her drums in the same room. They wanted a cabinet to cover the softener but also be functional. It was a bit tricky because it had to be open on the back so that it would slide over the softener but it had cabinet space on the side adjacent to the front door. Made my head hurt but we got it completed. Pic below. Notice that she gets to paint it and the upper cabinet is on the side opposite the cart. So, the weekend is coming! What's on your Patriot Woodworker agenda?

Please tell us what's happening in your shops, your life, and any events going on with you. Thank you for being here folks! As for me, I have a whole week off! Kids are on Spring Break and we have plans to see some sights. We'll be heading down to San Diego for a couple day trips, it's only 2 hrs away so we don't need to stay the night down there, and we'll visit some of our favorite places, The Cabrillo National Monument, Balboa Park, possibly the San Diego Zoo, and the beach of course, and we'll visit my old stomping grounds for some great food, but it'll be fun. I'll try to get some shop time in between it all, our kids are growing up so fast, I feel like I need to squeeze what remaining time I have left with them into a few short years anytime I have a day off. Our oldest is back to college, her Spring Break ended last week, so we'll just have our two youngest with us for this week off. Have a wonderful week ahead all! Who is behind The Patriot Woodworker? Of course our Forum Hosts and our Admins are! They run the joint around here, and without them we'd be in a world of hurt. Occasionally though I like to show off my family (the unseen heroes), who has supported my own efforts here on The Patriot Woodworker, with a ton of patience, and understanding for ol Dad. We take a few pictures once a year at this old picnic bench every Easter Morning after services. We have 17 years worth of images at this exact location in our backyard since we moved into our home, and it has become a family Easter Tradition. My wife and I have been married for 27 years, and we have lived in this home for 17 of those wonderful and at times challenging years. My very patient family seen below, my eyes look closed, they aren't though, I can actually see through them squinty eyes. I would like to officially and publicly thank my family for allowing Dad to be here, having fun with ya'll.

  14. Another busy week in my shop. We finished a Cedar table for a Primo smoker/grill that was picked up this morning. Yesterday we started working on four doors for two tall cabinets. These will be going out to Texas close to Waco. I was given four old shutters and they want me to build a frame around them and make two doors per cabinet. We are building the frame from Poplar. I think her plans are to paint the outside of the doors. We will make a panel to fit the bottom of the door. I was looking through my lunch ear and decided to use some Pecan for the panels. We took some thick pieces I had and resawed then to get book match pieces. They will then be set in a grove so the panels float. I think when we finish the panels they will look close to the shutters. And now I’m just waiting on Ron and Dorothy Dudleston to get here for the weekend. Whats on your agenda this weekend. Love to see all of your projects and here about them for the weekend. Whatever you do, have fun and be safe.

Featured Gallery @lew is famous for his Celtic Knot Rolling Pins, in case you all missed it, he inserted a wonderful gallery showing some of the steps to build a Celtic Knot Rolling Pin. Great job Lew! In the news Do you need some targeted feedback from our community for your next big tool purchase? Or how would you like to know what the most preferred method for finishing casework is? Spray or brush? Well now you can, we have a new function in our community that allows you to create polls. See the following link that shows you how to create a poll. Create a Topic With a Poll Thanks to @Cal idea regarding having a single location for past "What's It" topics images for our sleuths to be able to back track through the What's It projects and see if they can still solve them, and for our future detectives as well. Cal wanted a way to do this without having to open each topic and see what the item was for that month. So I turned our winners board into an image center as well with links to the topic. Now you can access all the What's It primary images in one place, for each year. Please see the following links. The MWTCA Project Winners Board 2017, and The MWTCA Project Winners Board 2018. We are working on a series of forms for you to create review for a tools, machinery, finishing, supplies, product review. The first form we are starting off with is a "Table Saw" review form. We will have a form with a variety of text fields prompting you with questions about the table saw you are writing about, once submitted, a dedicated page will have your complete review embedded within. We chose the Table Saw to start with, because it is typically the biggest, and first purchase folks make when starting their own shops, or replacing their existing Table Saw. If you'd like to participate in the form building process, please leave your feedback at this topic "Table Saw Review Form" We also temporarily opened up a project I have been developing for some time now. Please see the following topic at: Featured image of the week Illustration from the book "China and Its People" https://brbl-dl.library.yale.edu/vufind/Record/3441004 Image contains Chinese carpenters or woodsmen, they are performing pit saw activities for ripping boards from a log.

  16. The HUGE Maple Island top is finally in the finishing room. we will get the finish on today and hopefully get it delivered this weekend or first of the week. We we are making a smaller version of the top for a window seat top that will go in the kitchen also We got it glued into sections this morning. My son is working on a Cedar Green egg table.

  18. Today will start off with gluing up the six panels we have into three panels for this huge Maple Island top. yesterday we got them all run through the dual drum sander. Got the glue off and took them down close to finish thickness. Today we will work on jointing edges so we can do the glue up of the sections. While we are wait for glue to dry we will be taking a load of logs to the saw mill. I also have a load of lumber to pick up at the mill and bring home and sticker and stack. Should be a busy weekend. What’s on your agenda. We love to see your projects and pictures. Whatever you you do have fun and be safe.
  19. 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.

The brackets are predrilled for the stud location so they will be mounted on the wall and slide the shelf in and the there is a screw the goes into the bottom and lines up with a hole in the rods the keep the shelf in place.

What's It Our February "What's It" is live and well, go see our current months project at Featured image of the week A master woodworker in his own right and profession, Antonio Stradivari. Antonio Stradivari Italian pronunciation: [anˈtɔːnjo stradiˈvaːri]; (1644 – December 18, 1737) was an Italian luthier and a crafter of string instruments such as violins, cellos, guitars, violas and harps. Stradivari is generally considered the most significant and greatest artisan in this field. The Latinized form of his surname, Stradivarius, as well as the colloquial "Strad" are terms often used to refer to his instruments. It is estimated that Stradivari produced 1,116 instruments, 960 of which were violins. Around 650 instruments survived, including 450 to 512 violins.

  24. Well it has been a while since I have posted. Life gets in the way sometimes. This is past week I have been in my shop quite a bit and with the help of my son, Josh. We have even set him up a small shop at his house in part of his garage. I started working on this Island top last year and things just happened and we got behind. But it was delivered yesterday. it is finished with a hand rubbed oil finish. and this his is the island it is going on. Not attached yet but should be by the end of today. We also finished a poplar toybox yesterday and I thought I took a picture but don’t see it on my phone. Oh well. One other thing I have added to the shop but not had time to even hook up yet is a CNC machine. Can’t wait to get this up and running. So how about you all, what’s on you agenda this weekend? Love to here about and see all of your projects. Whatever you do, have a fun and safe weekend.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
