  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! 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.

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.

  6. Short and Sweet Running late for work this morning folks, so sorry. But we still gotta ask, what did you get done over the weekend and what have you planned for the week ahead!!! And please don't forget to welcome our newest members to the fold! Be safe in all you do, we need you back here to contribute and share. Featured Image I could not take the time to surf the net to find a featured image, so I just quickly opened up my desktop folder of pictures and dragged this one in. Our youngest daughter Tiffany at her weekly riding lesson, grandpa Jack center, and me the knucklehead on the far right, dad came off the mountain for a day with us, and hung out and made it to one of our kids riding lessons. Dad taught me to woodwork starting around the age of 9 or 10. Just thought I'd share a bit of my family, to you. Peace and love to all! Happy Monday!
  7. 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! Happy New Year! 2018 has been a wonderful year for The Patriot Woodworkers, and the reason is you. You, the member, the guest, the forum host, our sponsors, the admins, everyone who touches this community in some way or form contributes to the success of this online community. And we thank you! To our members, thank you for being here, day in and day out, contributing, learning, mentoring, collaborating, and for passionately supporting the men and women who serve our nation through our fundraisers and projects. To our guests, thank you for being here and visiting our community, you are a very important part of our growing online community, you visit, you read, and you share with others thus in turn attracting more folks to visit us. When you are ready, we would love to have you here, so please consider Signing Up and connecting with some wonderful folks and woodworkers! To our sponsors, thank you Woodcraft, Laguna Tools and Easy Wood Tools, for your support of our community and our veterans and military projects we are involved in throughout the year. You are completely appreciated, and you are not taken for granted, our economy can roll up and down and sideways, and we completely understand that financial support of our community can dry up in a heartbeat with the tough business decisions you have to make. So we thank you sponsors, from the bottom of our hearts, for financing this online community. NOTE: We currently have three sponsors of our woodworking community, between them we raise around $3400.00 for the entire year, that is our gross income for The Patriot Woodworker, our sponsors funds help pay our hosting fees, software licensing fees, outside development fees, and we manage to have enough left over to help a few very deserving veterans in need with woodworking tools, supplies and assistance. By the end of the year, we are pretty much zeroed out, with a few dollars left in our account. If you would like to sponsor our woodworking community, or if you have connections with a retailer (who will not conflict with our current sponsors) we would love to bring you or them aboard! Ok, that was my shameless plug for the year!

Please tell us what's happening in your shops, your life, and any events going on with you. Thank you for being here folks! Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas to all Patriot Woodworkers and guests alike. So, here we are, a day after Christmas and I completely forgot to get our Monday topic live, as I do weekly. I also did not get our Monday topic up the last two weeks as I have been very ill, I have finally dug out of the flu fog the last few days and I actually felt great for Christmas. I'd like to say thank you to all for being here, and sharing your lives and shops with us, we are forever grateful for the folks who keep our forums live and interesting. And we hope you all have a very Merry Christmas! Under the Christmas Tree So Patriot Woodworkers, what did you all get under the tree this Christmas, I'll go ahead and kick it off! My family purchased this wonderful restored fully usable set and sharpened Warranted Superior saw for me, this is a beaut! I love it. They also presented me with this wonderful old book all about North American woods and trees, and their use in the trades and crafts woodworking industry. I love these old books, I use them as a resource for our Patriot Woodwiki that we have been building, and the family knows I love to read these books. I can't get enough of them. This books was copyright is 1951 and it is still viable today, why wouldn't it be, trees have not changed in the last 60 years have they? The book is called American Woods, and was written by Shelley E. Schoonover (Regional Fiscal Agent (retired) United States Forest Service). So that was my haul of the day, what did Santa bring you all!

Please tell us what's happening in your shops, your life, and any events going on with you. Thank you for being here folks! Personal update: I think I quite woodworking, seems I cannot get back in the shop these days, this is the longest dry spell I have ever had (no woodworking since August). Between home repairs for our VA refinance (done) and medical emergencies, and visiting loved ones in the hospital, and just a whole host of things that I cannot publicly display, I cannot get back to it! Alas, I do have faith! I was able to actually walk out to my shop and organize a tad. It's amazing when a garage/shop is not being used, how much crap builds up on top of woodworking surfaces!

Featured image of the week Source: http://thepatriotwoodwiki.org/Adze The traditional way to use an adze is to straddle the timber or log while holding the adze by its long handle and swing the adze up out in front and center to the users body, then swing the adze down to strike the timber or log. There are many ways to use a long handled adze and various stances or positions for the user to take as the work dictates. The foot adze is most commonly known as a shipbuilder’s or carpenter’s adze. They range in size from 00 to 5 being 3 1/4 to 4 3/4 pounds with the cutting edge 3 inches to 4 1/2 inches wide. On the modern steel adze the cutting edge may be flat for smoothing work to very rounded for hollowing work such as bowls, gutters and canoes. The shoulders or sides of an adze may be curved called a lipped adze, used for notching. The end away from the cutting edge is called the pole and can be of different shapes, generally flat or a pin pole.

Featured gallery @DerBengel has created a wonderful gallery this past week, showing of small box joinery and her painting finesse along with picture frame making. Featured image of the week With an age of 4847 years, Methuselah the ancient Great Basin bristlecone pine tree has the honor of being Earth’s oldest non-clonal organism. The tree is located in the White Mountains of Inyo County, Eastern California, but its exact physical location is kept confidential to protect it from people. In 1964, a researcher with the consent of U.S. Forest Service, chopped down a tree which was around 4900 years old (named Prometheus). At present, we can still visit the grove of the ancient bristlecone pine tree forest but can we identify which tree is Methuselah? Source: http://www.wondersify.com/oldest-trees-world/

  23. Good Monday Morning Patriot Woodworker's and Guests! What did you get done in your shops and what have you planned for the week ahead? We want to hear, and see how you're doing. Life events are fair game too, how's your health, how's your family, how's your job? Bring it on, we are all ears! The Patriot Woodworker Shop Well, I have a curly maple rocker that is sitting in the wings waiting for assembly, my progress on that came to a screeching halt a couple weeks ago when family "stuff" started happening and my time is directed elsewhere. Part of my re-direction went to our 1/2 bath remodel we are undertaking right now, I will start on building a Walnut vanity very soon, I purchased the lumber this past weekend (pictured left) and I'll have some progress images up soon I hope. I purchased the lumber from our local hardwood supplier Reel Lumber. They are a gold mine of hard woods in an area of Southern CA where hard wood retailers are in short supply.

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.
