  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!  Community News Our Annual Adopt a Wounded Warrior Family for Christmas project is live! I want to thank those who have contributed thus far! One week into the project and we are half of the way to meeting our goal! Please see our project at: Latest Wiki Pages Mortise and Tenon This is an ancient joint dating back 7,000 years. The first examples, tusked joints, were found in a well near Leipzig, Germany - the world's oldest intact wooden architecture. It has also been found joining the wooden planks of the "Khufu ship", a 43.6 m long vessel sealed into a pit in the Giza pyramid complex of the Fourth Dynasty around 2500 BC. Read more... I started to use some new technology to our wiki, though it's not new to the world of editing software, it's been around for a long time, but it's relatively new to our wiki, the hovering popup! I love it. I can highlight some text, and create a hover popup containing information that the reader may want to explore further. You'll see in the wiki page "Mortise and Tenon" in the first paragraph, two bold text areas, "well near Leigzig" and "Khufu ship". Hover your cursor over those items and you'll receive additional information on those items. Go ahead and try it!

  2. 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.

  4. Here we are at the last weekend in November. Where has this year gone? Seems like a few weeks ago we were wrapping up the season and here we are again. Our shop hop has been busy these past come of weeks readying for our final show of the year, Sugarplum Marketplace. A three day show that started yesterday and runs through Saturday evening. Yesterday was a busy day for us and we more than covered our booth cost so now it’s on to selling out. Cutting Boards! Slab Boards and some signs made on the CNC. Breadboards and Cheese Boards. And even a few Porch signs that have become popular! What’s on your agenda this weekend and as we head into the Christmas Season? Share your projects with us and post those pictures. Love to see what everyone else is working on and the wonderful craftsmanship that you all bring to the forum. Whatever 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.

  8. 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!

  9. 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.

  12. Can you believe that we’re into November already? The good news is that in 5 days we can retake our televisions from the politicians. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m on the local election board so this is a very busy season for me. This afternoon is poll worker training and Monday is traveling board to vote the shut ins and Tuesday is the general election. I’ve been building a unit for a customer and today was stain day. Hopefully, I can shoot the first coat of Endurovar Sunday afternoon. It is scheduled to be picked up on the 14th. I think I may make it. The pix are with stain only. so tell me, what’s on Your Weekend Agenda?
  13. Mr. Moody is busier than a one armed paper hanger and has asked to do his Friday post. It is crunch time in Indiana. I’m on the local election board and we have been prepping for the November elections. Plus, I’m building a shelved cabinet that has to be out the door by December 1st and I have a show to do on November 10. Busy, busy, busy. Today I’m rebuilding a door for the cabinet because I just didn’t like the way the other one looked. The customer wants inset doors to match an existing piece of furniture and that piece isn’t exactly high quality. It’s been a chore. So gang, what’s on Your Weekend Agenda?

My shop In my shop, not much in the way of projects but I am having fun collecting tools I'll need to round out my inventory of chair making implements and tools. One of the last tools I purchased from a seller on eBay is this wonderful frame saw with a couple blades. I was in search for a turning saw, they are a tad shorter than this saw, but this saw should do well for cutting radius's, it appears this specific frame saw was made as a turning saw considering the blade installed and the blades that come with it and the tiny set screw and post to hold the blade. It should be on my bench tonight when I come home from work, I can't wait! By the way, I stole this beaut for 75 bucks, I am very happy. So that's it in my shop, hope you all have a wonderful week ahead, and stay safe, and be well! Turning saw by S.

  15. Well it seems as if fall has arrived. Last week it was in the 90’s and this week we are in the low 70’s. I love the cooler weather and we are busy in the shop. Today we are working on making and 8’, 2” thick Cherry Cross. Working on the half lap joints right now. At the assembly table we are ready pieces for cutting boards. And of course we still have cornhole boards everywhere. Last week I build this display piece for the range to put AR rifles in a horizontal position. i used my CNC to cut the mortises for the upright pieces. Finished it and took it to the range. So lots going on here and we are readying for Christmas. Whats on on your weekend agenda? I always love love to see your projects and hear about what you are working on.

  18. I’m pinching hitting again today. John Moody had his eyes dilated and can’t see to type. My nephew helped me side my house and now we’re building his wife a farm house table. This beast is 84” long and 40” wide and weights a ton. The top is 6/4 popular and they are going to put some kind of gel stain on it. We also have to build a matching bench. That’s my weekend project. What’s on your Patriot Woodworker Agenda?

  21. This weekend is the beginning of fall and it’s hard to tell here. Yesterday was a record setting day for temperatures, we hit 100. I’m not a fan of real cold weather but I could take a break from these long super hot days. My AC is working overtime. We finished the table with the metal base and expecting it to be picked up today. It has one bench and the will use chairs on the other side. Today we will finish up a Green Egg Smoker table made of Cedar. Thats going to be about it this weekend. Saturday I’m traveling to Talladega, Alabama to CMP Range to shoot in the GLOCK XXV match as part of the GSSF. They are expecting some 200 shooters and the range is located behind the Talladega Motor Sports Speedway. Looks like it will be a long hot day but I’m excited to get the opportunity. So so what’s on your agenda this weekend. Share your projects and pictures that you are working on. We all love to see them and hear about what your doing. Whatever you do this weekend, have fun and be safe!
  22. Tables have been the order of business this week. We were sent a picture to build a base for a table. They already had a top they wanted to use so we got it going. Yesterday we got all the little accent pieces put on and now it is in the finishing room. it is is going to be painted and they are dropping the paint by so we can start today. Since it was being painted we used up some small pieces of wood laying around to do all the accents. While that one was being put together we started on a large Maple table top and 2” tubing base. The top was to be 48”x60”x2”. Had to do it in a couple of glue ups to keep flat and ensure good joints. After we made the last glue up to be just over 48” wide we sent a picture to the customer and they quickly decided it was too big for the room so we will be cutting it down. The Base is 2” square tubing so the shop turned to welding. Both my sons are certified welders so I left it up to them. The base is now together and the end pieces for a bench that will go with the table. A little more grinding and sanding and a primer will get sprayed this weekend and then it will be sprayed Black. The frame and bench ends will get levers drilled and inserted to protect floors. We are hopful of finishing all this over the weekend but you just never know. Saturday I’m shooting in a GSSF competition. So that’s our agenda, what’s on your agenda this weekend? share your projected and pictures as we all here at TPW love to see everything you are working on. For those in the path of Florence, we hope and pray you are safe. Whatever your plans this weekend, 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.
