  3. We finally finished the Hickory Slab Desk and got it delivered to its new home. My son Josh did a lot of the work on this and did an outstanding job. We completed the slab shelves some time back and then waited on a remodel and us as we got behind also. But it looks good and they are excited to start using it. Today I’m working on the legs for the Red Elm kitchen island. The last shelve is glued and ready for sanding. Hopefully I’ll get all the legs done this weekend and this will be ready for finish the first of the week. So what’s on your agenda this weekend? I love to see your projects and see what your working on. Share your plans and projects and post those pictures. Whatever you do, have fun and be safe.
  4. For some a three day holiday weekend and others it just another weekend. We poured the epoxy finish on the desk this week and it’s looking good. Got finis sprayed on the bottom so it should get delivered this weekend. Working on finishing up this kitchen island. Made of Red Elm. First two shelves done. Like one more shelf and the bottom legs then it will go to finishing. So what’s on your agenda this weekend? love to see your projects and how they are going. Whatever you do, have fun and be safe.

These axes would be classified as hand axes for obvious reasons. Read more... Featured Topic Featured Image Boys in Catholic High School wood shop learning scroll sawing.

Community News Please see our financial debriefing for our Christmas Project 2018 Our Wiki Recently while poking around the software that I use for our wiki, I found an interesting feature that I implemented for our "American Woods" Project. Before, the pages for each of our trees where scattered about and un-linked to one another. So the reader would have to back out of each page and find another page in the American Woods category. Now we have a structured page with a table of contents for each page in this category thus far. We almost have all the conifers entered into this project, and soon I'll be moving onto the hardwoods. While perusing this subject, you can now click on the little forward arrow from any page within the "American Woods" project and be taken to the next page. This may seem like a big "duh" to most folks, but within this open source freeware, things like this are hard to come by and often times difficult to configure. See image below, click on the little forward arrow at this page: https://thepatriotwoodwiki.org/The-American-Woods-Project Glossary of Woodworking Joints This page is getting a fun little addition as well, if you go to https://thepatriotwoodwiki.org/Glossary-of-Woodworking-Joints You'll see some of the joints have a little dotted underline at the word. For example see "Bridle". The first joint in the Glossary, now hover your cursor over "Bridle". You should see a graphic appear that shows a "Bridle" joint. Growth Range Maps Several of our tree pages in the "American Woods" category are getting "Growth Range Maps". Eventually all the tree pages will have Growth Range Maps, you'll see a map at the right side of the page, below the info box. See just a few of the following pages that now have this handy addition, that lets you know where these trees are in our nation.

  7. We took a week or so off after Christmas to relax and try to reorganize to get ready to begin another year. Last week we got this slab top desk desk back to the top of the list. It got put on hold waiting on the customer to do a house remodel and now they are ready. It was going to have a live edge on both sides but that has now changed and we had to square up one side. We we got the legs built and just sat them on the top. They are not in place in the picture. Added a support stretcher under the top and secure the legs with some brackets underneath. It is ready this weekend to move into the finishing room to get an epoxy satin finish on the top and a spray satin finish on the bottom. Whats on your agenda this weekend? I love to see all that you are working on so share your projects with us and thanks for doing so. Whatever you do this weekend, have fun and be safe!

Featured Gallery @Warped & Twisted gallery of his Green House build is very interesting. See how Rich built the foundation for this project, and the re-purposed storm doors he and his wife used for the walls of the Green House. Those Alaskans, sure are resourceful! Community News Our raffle for the Bassett Family was a success, we want to thank everybody involved and those who contributed funding and treasure to this project. We have a few happy winners of some great prizes and many who walked away with the satisfaction that they contributed to this family and their Christmas Season. As the final proceeds are being sent to the family today, and as we close the books on yet another project for a wounded warrior family, within this week we'll have a publicly displayed disclosure of how the proceeds were used for this project along with some great images of the family, and some images of some beautiful crafts that were sent to us by one of our woodworkers and his wife here, for the Bassett Family. So stay tuned for the final wrap!

And to our new members, welcome to your new community folks! Our Wiki One of my latest projects for our wiki is bringing information into our wiki from the out of print book written by Shelley E. Schoonover (U.S. Forester) "American Woods", public domain. I've added a few more pages with some of our favorite softwoods or conifers published in our wiki. Balsam Fir - One of the ten firs native to the United States, is a medium-sized and short-lived tree but an important one, nonetheless, in both the United States and Canada. It is a beautiful, symmetrical, heavily-foliaged tree, doubtless the best shaped evergreen, comparable to the Colorado Blue Spruce. Read more... Bald Cypress - The Baldcypress is a well balanced and attractive, long lived tree which may grow to large size. It is one of the deciduous conifers. It grows on wet stream banks and low land as well as in swamps and attains its largest size in the south. Read more... California Incense Cedar - A well formed tree 75 to 125 feet tall and 18 to 40 inches in diameter. This is the only species of this genus growing in the United States. Read more... Northern White Cedar - A tree of medium size and of slow growth.The tree inhabits swamps and generally grows in such dense stands that its growth is greatly retarded. Read more... Western Red Cedar - A large, long-lived, slow-growing tree of the Pacific northwest. It attains heights of over 200 feet with a trunk diameter up to 16 feet. It has a wide buttressed or “swell butted” base, a long, clear trunk and a narrow, dense, conical crown. Read more...

  9. Here we are on the first Friday of a brand new year. I trust everyone survived all of the New Year’s festivities. I wonder how long it will take us to write 2019 instead of 2018....... This year rings in with a full range of shop activities for yours truly. Tomorrow, I have an appointment to measure a semi circular mantle for a home renovation here in town. It should be challenging but fun. I have a California king bed to build and a pair of cherry bookcases for a local dentist’s office. So, Happy New Year! What’s on you Patriot Woodworker Weekend Agenda?
  10. 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.

  11. 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!
  12. 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!
  13. 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.

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.

So jump in, post your pics, and tell us all the big fish stories you came up with over the weekend!

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!

  18. 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.

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.
  19. 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.

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. [Philadelphia, Pennsylvania]", it's not woodworking, it's metal working, but it shows the boys working together, a moving picture I feel, and symbolic. New York Public Library Collection
  20. 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!

  21. Good Monday Morning Patriot Woodworker's! And a Happy New Year to ya all! We'll get right down to the big question of the day, our weekly query to you, "What did you get accomplished, or not accomplished over the past weekend", and "what do you have planned for the week ahead in your shops?"

Just keep your cursor over the topic title for a few seconds, some computers may take longer. Hover your cursor over the "Activity" tab at top, and click on "All Activity" and you can see community snapshot of the latest content, one of my favorite areas on that page is the most recent forum images. Did you know that our "Downloads" are completely free? And we'd love to encourage our own folks here to upload their own plans, patterns and guides and charts for others to use, the Downloads section is a free community effort for all to participate in. So download some great open-source files and upload your own files to share! The "What's It Project" A new "What's it Project" will be posted later today, we are also changing the rules a tad so that we can start handing out memberships to the MWTCA, even if a "What's it" was not solved. Check back in later! Thank you On behalf of our staff we'd like to thank you all for being here, and sharing, learning, and contributing to our growing community, and growing database of knowledgeable content for future woodworker's to use. Thank you! Eye candy image of the week 'Rack Saw-bench with Self-acting Top' Circular saw ripping sawbench. The saw in this case remains fixed, but the sliding table moves past it on rollers, carrying the log with it. Note the lack of splitter, not unusual for this period.

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.
