  1. 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.

  2. 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!
  3. Hey Patriot Woodworker's! Here we are another weekend and a late Friday topic, sorry about that. But we have to ask, "What is on your woodworking agenda this weekend?" Any and all events to discuss are welcome, shoptime, outside work, honey do's, kids birthday parties, the grands coming to visit, you can talk about it here. My weekend Working on our patio shade structure again, just nipping away at it one board at a time, with kids around it's kind of challenging to get a good roll, I'll hang a joist, then I have to break away and pick one up from an event they are at, come home, hang another joist, "Hey dad, I need help with my science project" oh ya, and Mama is in the middle of it all getting things done too, as many of you know with kids, it's energy and excitement most every day. But we are getting it all done, the posts are up, the supports for the shade pieces are going up, and next weekend I should be installing the 2" x 3" shade slats across the supports. Easy Wood Tools Is in Florida, if you are in the area, drop on by and say howdy! @Jim from Easy Wood Tools may be there, I am not sure. So that's if from me folks, hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and life treats you grandly and wonderfully!
  4. 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! Our weekend I would like to say that I did something this past weekend in the ol wood shop, or even around the home, but I had one of the laziest weekends I have ever had in years. I have been quite overwhelmed these past few months with out of home extra duties that involve the care of others, and just a bunch of other things going on in life that presents challenges in ones patience, and my wife and I decided to just pull the plug on the phone, close our home up, and basically unplug from the world for the weekend. It was quiet, even the kids enjoyed the peace of a non-ringing phone. Our youngest girl was tied up all weekend with a school project, and our son with his annual Science project for school was busy, and our oldest girl stayed on campus at college this weekend because her symphony she plays in had a road tour for a concert, so the kids did not need much attention, and my wife and I were left to to laze around and do "whatever". It's been a long time since we did this, I like it, we'll have to unplug "literally" more often! Next week I should start to have some images rolling in for our patio build, as I'll be back on it this coming weekend.

  5. 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! Our weekend I am building a shade structure behind our home, and our son is building a fence. How do you teach your son to use a hand saw? Show him the fundamentals, then give him a stack of old fence boards to saw in half so they'll fit in the Green waste can. He begged for my Skil Saw once, only once. Proud of him. He's been using a handsaw off and on for a few years, he said with this stack of wood he finally got it, just leave the kid alone is the best thing often times.

We'd love to read and view what you all have been up to this past weekend, and what shop, or life plans you have the week ahead. So jump in, post your pics, and tell us all the big fish stories you came up with over the weekend! Blogs We get a ton of outside views for our blogging area, but our inside participation is lacking, so for those of you who are blogging, please keep it up, you are being read, and you are getting a ton of love from our fence sitting lurkers and passerby's. We are going to figure out a way to get those blogs out front and center so our woodworkers here will be able to see the current happenings quicker and easier which should equate to more participation. I just wanted you to know, your blogs are greatly appreciated. MWTCA "What's It" random drawing It's coming!

  9. Good morning folks!! I must make this one short and sweet, just learned some mudslides from our rains are blocking my primary route to work this morning, so I need to duck out of here much earlier. So, what did you get done in your shops over the weekend, and what have you prepared to do for the week ahead? We love to hear and read, and view what you are doing in your shops, and life period. Adopt-a-Family for the Holidays Financial Debrief It's live, you can view how your raffle purchase proceeds were used for this fantastic project at Thank you all for being here, thank you for your continued participation, and to all our viewers who come by and read and use our community, please sign up, login and jump in!

The farm "El Patio" is one of the largest and oldest farms of Lanzarote. It was built at the beginning of the 19th century and inhabited until 1949. Now a museum, the furnishing of the rooms, kitchen, toilet, stable, wine cellar and others represents well the way of life of an agricultural worker at the beginning of the 20th century. At that time it was the best developped and largest farm on he Island of Lanzarote. 20 farmhands with 15 camels worked on the fields of this farm.
  10. Good Monday Morning! In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Many of us get to stay home from work today, I am one of them. To view a brief history of the man, please see Martin Luther King Jr. (A history.com page) We also happen to have a scroll saw pattern of this historical giant in our American culture. So I'll get to the point of this weekly topic, What did you get done in your shops over the weekend, and what plans have you for the week ahead? We've seen some great projects the past week, so we know your all busy and productive in your shops. This topic is a great place for a weekly check in, to show us what you have been up too, so please post away, images, projects, life, family, it does not have to be woodworking related, did you take a vacation? Did you see a great movie? Anything! Personally I was able to make it out to the shop yesterday and cobble together a weaved seat for the shaker stool I built a couple weeks ago. As some of you may know I had a little accident running up my stairs here at home, and I fell up the stairs and banged up my wrist pretty good. It was quite the challenge holding parts of the weave material with a bad hand and shoving the weave through with the good hand, but I got her done! You can see the stool in the Gallery. Adopt-a-Family Debrief Our 2017 Adopt-a-Warrior-Family for Christmas project has wound down, the last check of the raffle proceeds is going out to the Akin family, ma and pa Akin will have enough in the last disbursement to hire a babysitter and head out for a much needed night together and have a nice dinner. At least that is what I'll suggest they do, but more than likely they'll use if for the kids. The details and breakdown of the project and financial statement will be available this week. We'll post it in a separate topic from the project topic. Leaderboard Check out your Leader Board for some interesting statistics, it's always fun to see who or what is moving and shaking in our community. Featured blog Please check out Gerald's wonderful blog on building a cherry entertainment center! Thank you I'd like to thank everyone here who comes into our little home away from home who contributes and participates in our topics in all the areas of our woodworking community website. Our website is a tool for woodworkers to share their knowledge, lend council to other woodworkers, and to share our projects with each other. It's always nice to get an atta boy isn't it? Without you, the contributor, we don't have a community, it's because of your contributions that we are growing and becoming stronger and we are in turn able to provide some help in some way to the men and women who have served our nation. Without you, we don't have sponsors, without our sponsors, we don't have funding to stay live and aid those we can. Remember, this is a truly non profit community, nobody on our staff pockets a single penny, not even yours truly, all proceeds are used to fund our community, keep it live, and help our veterans. Thank you for that folks! Eye candy image of the week In honor of the Holiday today, I found this image of a group of boys working together in 1939 at "Dobbins Vocational School - Class in soldering.

  11. Good Morning Patriot Woodworker's! I'll have to keep this one short and sweet, got a sore hand and I am typing one handed here. So, first off, what have you all got going on this week in your shops? What did you do in your shops over the weekend? Please spill the beans and give us a snapshot in the life of your workshops, and even in your own non-woodwork related lives, we like to know how we are all doing these days. This last weekend nothing really got done in our own shop as we were out on the road traveling a little bit locally, in our mountains and checking out the snow and wrapping up the winter break. We hope to hear from you about your life happenings, and all your doing. Thank you for being here and thank you for your contributions to our community!

  20. Good Monday Morning folks! This past weekend was pretty uneventful in the ol shop, as we were involved in a few outside activities and we were prepping our home for our daughters 15th birthday party, and then hosted that party all day Saturday, then clean up and take down Sunday. It was fun. I did however get out to the shop during the party and just sat down and grabbed a piece of mind from all the teenage girl chatter and sat at my cut off bench and surfed the net here on my shop old pc. Sometimes just getting in the shop, and sitting down, and breathing deep, is very relaxing, without doing work. The smell of the sawdust, the tools around me, and I'll pick up a magazine and read or read a good research book for woodworking. So my weekend was zip in the production category, as many weekends have been in the past lately. But, what have yall got planned for the upcoming week? What's on the honey-do-list, home improvements? or do you have anything fun going on in the ol shop? or, paid work by clients? Here is a wonderful old image for yall to gander at to see if you can come up with its purpose as related to woodworking. Go ahead, take your best shot, what is it!
  21. Howdy Patriot Woodworkers! Coming off a two week pull from vacation on my end, I am surprisingly ready to go back to my day job and get to work this first work week of our New Year. I love being home with family, having our own schedule, and going places and sleeping in an hour while on vacation! But I must admit, I awoke bright eyed bushy tail and eager to excel this morning and I am ready to tackle the week ahead at the day job! In my region all though, we are scheduled for a considerable amount of rain, so my time may be in the office instead of out in the field where I belong for a few days. That being said, what do you all have fired up in your shops for this week? What projects do you have happening, what is on your Monday agenda. I love Mondays, always have. It seems like a new line in the sand to be crossed over and whatever is on the other side is ready for me to tackle and conquer and make peace with. The same can be said for the projects we all have lined up on our calendars. John Moody our site administrator hits The Patriot Woodworker's up with the Friday weekend agenda, so now I am asking, what was the outcome of your weekend projects, and what do you have planned for the work week ahead! While on vacation I was able to make some great progress on our new Patriot Woodwiki. We have been working on software research and testing for a year now, and I feel we have made great strides in this area. Our wiki is not currently open yet, but I think we have finally, finally settled on a wiki software engine, and a look and feel we may be happy with. You can view our efforts at The Patriot Woodwiki, and you can view a test article at Sam Maloof that we have been playing with at each wiki engine testing. We hope our wiki will become a great research resource for anything and all that has to do with woodworking. Thank you for being here Patriot Woodworkers, and making us a great place to hang our hats! Picture of the week: Black Powder Rifle by maker Micky Britt as seen at Contemporary Makers

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.
