  3. Last Friday I got busy early and my good friend Ron stepped in and posted for me. I worked quite a bit at the range and tried to squeeze in some time in the shop. Josh has been doing most of the work with me coaching. We we have worked on and off this huge cross for some time and they were finally to hang it so we got it finished and delivered. Made of Solid Cherry and dyed a blood red for the Blood of Christ and the white Maple down the center to represent the purity. They got if hung and said it was very heavy. They had access to the back of the wall and put blocking in to attach it from the back. We’re about ready to start assembly of the Red Elm Kitchen work table. I just like turning the feet and I should get them this weekend. And we are close to finishing a White Oak slab top executive desk. drawers on the left and door on the right with shelves inside. Door fronts will have a live edge on them. A center door and we will be ready to assemble. So so what’s on your agenda this weekend? I love to see your projects and pictures. Share your projects here and show us your plans this weekend. Whatever you you do have fun and be safe.

  6. We finally finished the Hickory Slab Desk and got it delivered to its new home. My son Josh did a lot of the work on this and did an outstanding job. We completed the slab shelves some time back and then waited on a remodel and us as we got behind also. But it looks good and they are excited to start using it. Today I’m working on the legs for the Red Elm kitchen island. The last shelve is glued and ready for sanding. Hopefully I’ll get all the legs done this weekend and this will be ready for finish the first of the week. So what’s on your agenda this weekend? I love to see your projects and see what your working on. Share your plans and projects and post those pictures. Whatever you do, have fun and be safe.

Community News Please see our financial debriefing for our Christmas Project 2018 Our Wiki Recently while poking around the software that I use for our wiki, I found an interesting feature that I implemented for our "American Woods" Project. Before, the pages for each of our trees where scattered about and un-linked to one another. So the reader would have to back out of each page and find another page in the American Woods category. Now we have a structured page with a table of contents for each page in this category thus far. We almost have all the conifers entered into this project, and soon I'll be moving onto the hardwoods. While perusing this subject, you can now click on the little forward arrow from any page within the "American Woods" project and be taken to the next page. This may seem like a big "duh" to most folks, but within this open source freeware, things like this are hard to come by and often times difficult to configure. See image below, click on the little forward arrow at this page: https://thepatriotwoodwiki.org/The-American-Woods-Project Glossary of Woodworking Joints This page is getting a fun little addition as well, if you go to https://thepatriotwoodwiki.org/Glossary-of-Woodworking-Joints You'll see some of the joints have a little dotted underline at the word. For example see "Bridle". The first joint in the Glossary, now hover your cursor over "Bridle". You should see a graphic appear that shows a "Bridle" joint. Growth Range Maps Several of our tree pages in the "American Woods" category are getting "Growth Range Maps". Eventually all the tree pages will have Growth Range Maps, you'll see a map at the right side of the page, below the info box. See just a few of the following pages that now have this handy addition, that lets you know where these trees are in our nation.

  10. We took a week or so off after Christmas to relax and try to reorganize to get ready to begin another year. Last week we got this slab top desk desk back to the top of the list. It got put on hold waiting on the customer to do a house remodel and now they are ready. It was going to have a live edge on both sides but that has now changed and we had to square up one side. We we got the legs built and just sat them on the top. They are not in place in the picture. Added a support stretcher under the top and secure the legs with some brackets underneath. It is ready this weekend to move into the finishing room to get an epoxy satin finish on the top and a spray satin finish on the bottom. Whats on your agenda this weekend? I love to see all that you are working on so share your projects with us and thanks for doing so. Whatever you do this weekend, have fun and be safe!

  12. This seems like a very fast year as we come to the last weekend. It has been a busy year for us and we were blessed with lots of projects. We usually take a couple of weeks after Christmas to regroup and reorganize somewhat before starting back. So no work in our shop this week or this weekend. I plan on a little relaxing and doing a little shooting at this range this weekend. I have some reloading to do. Part of of the weekend I’ll be in front of the TV watching the College Football Playoffs. Time now to take some time and reflect back on the year and plan for the coming year. What’s on your agenda this weekend? I love to hear what you are doing and see the projects your are working on. Have a a safe and Happy New Year.

Though we have met our goal, there is still time to enter if you wish, the draw happens on New Years. Any funds collected over our goal, will be sent to the family in the form of a check.

  16. Wow, been in the shop since early this morning and time got away from me. Trying to finish up Christmas orders and at times I’m not sure I’m making any progress. Last week I was working on some hand mirrors and I’m still working on them. But today I’ve made progress. They get a Maple insert in the back and an initial will be engraved in the Maple. Today I got setup and I’m cutting the inserts on the CNC and getting them fit. I hope tomorrow I’ll have all of them engraved. We've been getting finish on cornhole game boards and a cedar table we have to deliver to Nashville, TN tomorrow morning. And I had someone order a small engraved sign for a joke on a friend of theirs about a new garage he is building that seems to keep getting bigger and bigger. I didn’t think you could get one too big! So What’s on your agenda this weekend? Show us what your working on. I love to see all the different things that get made here. What ever you do, have fun and be safe.
  17. December 7th a day that will live in infamy. A special day to remember. A day to stop, reflect, self-inspect and support those of the “Greatest Generation” that answered the call. May we never forget that they didn’t hesitate but gave their all to make this the Greatest Nation on this earth. At the shop shop we are busy filling Christmas orders now that we have finished our last show of the season. Cornhole boards are are still high on the list. Two more sets in the assembly area. and two more sets in the finishing room. Six more sets to finish this coming week. I started last night roughing out some blanks for some Walnut hand mirrors. Turned one down close just to check my measurements since it’s been a while since I’ve made these. The back side will get a Maple insert with an initial engraved in the center. That’s what it looks like right now in my shop, what’s on your weekend agenda? Share your projects and pictures. Whatever you you do have fun and be safe.

Latest Wiki Entries Redwood Lie Nielsen No. 1 Lie Nielsen No. 6  Glossary of Woodworking Terms (Currently editable by the general public - no login necessary) Regarding the two entries for the Lie Nielsen hand planes, those are somewhat of a test. I created a Bench Plane entry easy to use form for our members to use. You will be able to activate the form and fill it in with simple to use easy steps, and click on "Save", and your hand plane page is created. You will be able to take images of your own hand planes in your shop, and add them to our wiki with factual data and information about your hand plane. Future forms will be created for all types of tools and machinery and other woodworking related data. Form screen shot below, the drop down menus have choices such as "Common Name", when the down arrow is clicked a drop down menu of choices - Smoothing - Jack - Fore - Jointer, are shown as a selection. Click on the "Save" button and a wiki page is automatically created with all the information you entered in this form. At this time, this form is for Bench Planes only, not specialty planes, there will be additional forms to cover the specialty classifications of hand planes.

  24. 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!  Latest Wiki Entries Glossary of Woodworking Hand Tools is being updated at light speed thanks to the great open source book Principles of Woodworking by Herman Hjorth. Also, the Glossary of Woodworking Hand Tools has made it into our main navigation tab under "Wiki" at the top nav bar of our community. Just hover your cursor over "Wiki" for the drop down. As you all know by now, the wiki page for Glossary of Woodworking Terms is open for editing. Just visit the page, do not log in, it's not necessary, and hover your cursor over the down carrot symbol and click on "Edit", the page will then open for edit. Once you complete your edit, you'll be asked for a short description of what you did, simply enter into the field short terms such as "edit text", "added chisel", "corrected spelling", then you'll fill in the simple captcha anti spam robot field and submit, and your edit is recorded! Editing our Wiki Folks may be apprehensive about editing our wiki, I must admit when you open the page for edit it looks a tad strange. Just use the examples that are already there and you'll be fine. At this point we are using "wiki syntax". Soon I will open up the wiki with a standard windows style editor, but for now I am hoping folks will give the "wiki syntax" a chance as it's much more reliable because it's all "plain text" entries. Not too mention once you get used to it, it's quite fast too, since you are relying on text to create fonts, and bold lettering and underlines, it's actually much faster than having to highlite your word, and click on a formatting button as you do here in this forum. Here are a few examples of plain text entries for our wiki, and what those entries generate. The "Desired Formatting" is what you would like to see in your text, the "Syntax" is what you type, the "Result" is what you'll see once the page is saved. The Golden Rules of Editing our Wiki Really there are only two Golden Rules in wiki'ing. Be Bold! Be bold in your editing, be bold in your page creation, be bold in accepting others editing of your own personal work, and be bold in referencing and checking the facts. Be Creative! Don't be shy, and don't let the standards of wiki'ng stop you from editing or creating. Wiki's rely on research and references, in order to create content that is factually based. Our wiki should not contain content based on personal opinions, nor biased writings, but the wiki should be a source that readers can count on for factual statements about any given subject. Enter your content, enter you knowledge openly and freely, don't worry about the reference or research details if you don't have them, we can always come back and edit in those details later, so edit without fear! Creating and editing a wiki should be fun, since you cannot really damage a wiki page you should not worry if you are going to make a mistake or erroneously delete something that cannot be retrieved. The reason is that all wiki pages have a history, a history of edits and changes that can be recalled and re-established as a page. So if you accidentally destroy a wiki page, no worries! We can simply revert the prior page back to its former glory. So, create, edit, and just have fun!

  25. Hey I’m back at it again. I had a couple of Friday’s that just got busy early and Ron came to my rescue. This week we have been working on Cedar shutters for a customer. Got them all sanded and ready for delivery today. While we were waiting on those to dry we got a panel glued for a kitchen work table glued out of Red Elm. Still making stock for our last show of the year. Glued a batch of cutting booand last night got them all run through the drum sander. This weekend will be more of the same. Take time out out this weekend to recognize our veterans and let them know how much you appreciate them and the sacrifices they made. So what’s on your agenda? We love to see and hear about your projects so post them and pictures so we can see what you are working on. Have a great weekend and whatever you do have fun and be safe.

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.
