  10. 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.

New Wiki Pages Eastern Redcedar: Eastern Redcedar is usually a medium sized tree from 20 to 50 feet high with a short trunk one to two feet in diameter. Some trees have been found 120 feet high and four feet in diameter. The tree grows rather slowly. The bark is very thin, light-reddish-brown, and from one-eighth to one-quarter inch thick. It is shreddy and peels off in narrow shaggy strips. Because of its reddish bark and wood the Canadian French called the Eastern Redcedar “baton rouge,” meaning red stick, (read more...)

  12. The big big thaw is on in east central Indiana! It’s a balmy 17 degrees and I suspect the robins will be flying in at any time. Last night the temps began to rise and we got 5 inches of snow. The coldest we got this week was -17 but it was bearable because I keep my shop heated. This week I had 2 major accomplishments other than staying warm. Last Monday, I braved the snow and picked up a Dewalt 735 planer 5hat I bought and I managed to complete a mantle for a client. I’ll install it next week and add a bit of trim to match. So, Patriot Woodworker’s, what’s on your weekend agenda?
  13. 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.

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.

As we all know, Steve is our neanderthal woodworker to our community, his projects always involved extensive hand work, and patience, and he works in a small space that would turn most woodworkers into, well, non woodworkers! I have always admired Steve's zeal and commitment to the craft. MWTCA "What's It" The current What's It will be drawn tonight for a random winner for a one calendar year membership to the MWTCA.

  19. Good Monday Morning Patriot Woodworker's! Here we go onward to another fantastic week of woodworking, life, living, and sharing and learning from our fellow woodworkers! What have you all been up to over the weekend, and what have you planned for the week ahead? Put it all out there, anything is game! The rounding plane (image left), or tenon cutter, will be a new tool in my shop. I have been diving into building chairs and stools that require a round tenon. Since my lathe turning is a tad rough these days, and I am having a hard time cutting a consistent and accurate 5/8" tenon, I went ahead and purchased a 5/8" rounding plane made by Ray Iles, the cost was reasonable for a hand made tool at $65.95 and well worth the price to get those great fitting tenons. Latest News Ralph Jones is the recipient of an Honor Flight trip to Washington D.C. this April the 15th. Congratulations Ralph!

  20. Good Morning Patriot Woodworker's and Guests and Viewers! And what a glorious Monday it is. Well here we are, embarking on yet another great week in our community for sharing, learning, collaborative efforts and just flat out fun and interest. So to the question of the day, what did you do this past weekend and what have you planned for the week ahead? Your replies could be anything regarding woodworking of course, and anything regarding life for certain! We know we are not woodworkers 24/7, many of us have a life outside of woodworking (really?) and we take trips, have other plans with the family, and we may even be dealing with some not so wonderful realities of life, we'd love to read and share that as well. So have at it folks, anything goes, what'd ya do, and what ya doing! Recent happenings Per @Stick486 suggestion for a new sub-forum for our MWTCA projects, we now have a sub-forum live dedicated to the MWTCA What's It project. Thanks Stick! Our blogs, don't forget folks we have a wonderful blogging area for our community, and some nice projects have rolled in recently at Blogs. And for a quick run down on how to use our blogging platform, you can see how at "How to Create a Blog". On a side note: do you know a friend who loves to blog about woodworking? Do you know a professional blogger for woodworking who would like their content to be seen by thousands? Shoot him our way, we'd love to host their blog with us. Moaners and Groaners and Other Dribble and Useless Conversation and Other Drivel topics are long, fast, and fun! Please keep it tame, I was perusing the topics a few days ago and I had to remove some posts due to violations of our Guidelines.

  21. Good Morning Friends, Well another Saturday has come around and today's quiz is; What are four easy dado joints you can make with your table saw?
  22. Good Monday Morning folks! What's on your woodworking agenda for the week ahead, and what did you get done in the shop over the weekend! My son and I worked on his science project for school. So we knocked our heads together and came up with an age old test, End grain or Edge grain, Which Provides the Strongest Glue Joint? We assembled his experiment, and performed the test, and now he is creating the display board that all the science is displayed on and his research along with some photos of the actual experiment, one image seen below, guess which glue joint won? The break test that was performed for each joint. So, tell us how your weekend went, and what you got planned ahead, woodworking, or not! Thank you all for being here.

  25. Good Monday Morning Patriot Woodworkers and Guests! Now that we are all waking up to a "normal" week, without football hype, interviews of players, betting, and the constant barrage of geographical reviews of San Fransisco, we can get back to what really matters in life, woodworking! That being said, my son and I were on opposite sides of the Superbowl, I had to root for the Broncos, my boy on the other side, he's already an independent thinker at the ripe old age of 11. I was happy for Manning, and on the other side I was also rooting for a Panther win because of Bruce DeHaven, the Panthers special teams coach, he was diagnosed with an un-curable form of prostate cancer, and he coached through the last season like a champ, and he is loved and well respected by his players. I really also wanted a win for him as this will be his last year. This past weekend I have been tasked by my oldest daughter to make 40 awards for her Veterans and Patriot Tigers club she heads up on her high school campus. My family was at a Homes for Our Troops event on Saturday leaving me in the shop to get the awards started. Our girls club is going to present the awards to all the staff members in our school district who are Veterans at a special dinner that the students organized for the staff. Each award will be different. None alike. I have done these before and the recipients love them. I'll chop them out of these boards and slabs and shave and chip till they are ready. Then I'll mount some engraved tags and branch of service medallions on the face of each one. We have some California Live Oak, Apple, Claro Walnut, and Black Cherry. All left from prior projects. What a great way to use leftovers, in wonderful projects like this. Respecting the tree it all came from, and by giving each veteran a unique symbol of thanks. So this coming week I'll be splitting and hacking at these slabettes (not a real word, but hey, it works!) and cutoffs in order to come up with some unique awards for our veterans. How about you all? What you got coming up this week? Our Admin John Moody gotyall fired up for the weekend, and we are being nosy about your work week now!
