  3. Hope you all had a great Valentine day yesterday. Today im in the shop with my son and we have finally moved the kitchen island to our finishing room. It’s getting a clear finish and I’m loving the grain of the Red Elm. We are to get two months of rain in the next few days so I’m hoping we can get it delivered before the rain starts. Whats on you Patriot Woodworker agenda? Share your projects and pictures with us. Love to see and hear about all you are doing. Whatever you do, have fun and be safe.

And to our new members, welcome to your new community folks! New Wiki Page The Shakers: A section of our wiki that will be dedicated to the Shakers and the work they performed within the realm of woodworking. The page is in its infancy and is only an introduction to the society of Shakers at this point. Soon the page will be a representation of their work in wood and the Shaker members involved in that work. There will be images of the work, and biographies of the creators of that work. New Enfield Shaker Village, NH The Shakers ~ The Protestant Reformation and technological advances led to new Christian sects outside of the Catholic Church and mainstream Protestant denominations into the 17th and 18th centuries. The United Society of Believers in Christ’s Second Appearing, commonly known as the Shakers, was a Protestant sect founded in England in 1747. The French Camisards and the Quakers, two Protestant denominations, both contributed to the formation of Shaker beliefs. Read more... Society Research Portal is a new portal of our wiki that was created over the weekend to share the people's around the world who perform woodworking, this portal will focus on entire societies that engage in the art, trade and craft that is woodworking, such as "The Shakers". We could also explore the Chinese Dynasties in woodwork for example, or the work of the American Native non-contigious tribe of the Paiute. Our world is the limit!

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.

  6. 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?
  7. 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.

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!

  16. 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! To read more on Honor Flights please see this link at https://www.honorflight.org/ As many of you may know, Herb, or better known as "Dadio" was the winner of last months MWTCA "What's It" project.

  17. Good Morning Friends, What method would you use when cutting true miters on your table saw?
  18. 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. Removal of posts in those particular forums will happen without warning and without explanation if they violate any of our Guidelines. It's a pretty big job keeping tabs on the woodworking portion of our community without having to worry about a completely off-topic discussion and if there are violations within it. Thank you all for your understanding! Featured Gallery Check out this wonderful military art work by @oleglenn. And while you are there, see his other albums a well.

  20. Good Morning Friends, Well another Saturday has arrived and time for the quiz; This one is for you turners and anyone else who can answer it. How does one stop end grain bowl blowout? Pictures would be nice.
  21. 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! Here we go again, off to a new week, a new start and a new week to make sawdust, create works of art, wrap up honey do lists, and if your like me, make firewood! For our family the hustle and bustle of the Holidays and the following weeks are just winding down now, since our two oldest daughters both had birthdays in two weeks consecutively and both the birthdays were party worthy because of the important year, our youngest daughter turned 15, a very big birthday for the culture my wife is from, and our oldest girl turned 18. Now that the parties are over, and our home is back to a dull roar I'll be able to get back in the shop and start up on some of my projects. Meanwhile I have been getting my woodworking fix by vicariously living through others and their artistry. One of those being a group of folks who make Windsor chairs. It's a relatively small community of chair makers and they are wonderful folks, they have a great appreciation for quiet shops, full of hand tools and tradition, and they are a very helpful community willing to jump in and help anyone make their Windsor chair. Here are a couple links to some of the makers I have been visiting: Ellia Bizzarri Curtis Buchanan Jock Jones Arrow Back Arm Chair by Jock Jones My head is wrapping around the idea of a quiet shop as I have begun the mental process of coming to terms of a quiet shop and what it means to run on human power, and the Windsor chair among many other projects are well suited to the quiet suburban shop of today. In addition to the Shaker Round Box projects I posted about a few weeks ago, I think the Windsor chair would make a great addition to the inventory of hand made projects to have in an inventory for market. They just seem to go together so well. So, what is on your week's agenda folks! It can't all be work, I know we have some retirees here as well who are able to continue their woodworking through the week. Not me, I still have quite a few years before I am in that camp, so for now I'll sign off and head out the door to work, and leave this community in the wonderful hands of those who are able to visit throughout the day. Cheers!
