  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!  Community News Our Annual Adopt a Wounded Warrior Family for Christmas project is live! I want to thank those who have contributed thus far! One week into the project and we are half of the way to meeting our goal! Please see our project at: Latest Wiki Pages Mortise and Tenon This is an ancient joint dating back 7,000 years. The first examples, tusked joints, were found in a well near Leipzig, Germany - the world's oldest intact wooden architecture. It has also been found joining the wooden planks of the "Khufu ship", a 43.6 m long vessel sealed into a pit in the Giza pyramid complex of the Fourth Dynasty around 2500 BC. Read more... I started to use some new technology to our wiki, though it's not new to the world of editing software, it's been around for a long time, but it's relatively new to our wiki, the hovering popup! I love it. I can highlight some text, and create a hover popup containing information that the reader may want to explore further. You'll see in the wiki page "Mortise and Tenon" in the first paragraph, two bold text areas, "well near Leigzig" and "Khufu ship". Hover your cursor over those items and you'll receive additional information on those items. Go ahead and try it!

Community News We finally have been assigned our Adopted Family for Christmas by Operation Ward 57!

Latest Wiki Entries Redwood Lie Nielsen No. 1 Lie Nielsen No. 6  Glossary of Woodworking Terms (Currently editable by the general public - no login necessary) Regarding the two entries for the Lie Nielsen hand planes, those are somewhat of a test. I created a Bench Plane entry easy to use form for our members to use. You will be able to activate the form and fill it in with simple to use easy steps, and click on "Save", and your hand plane page is created. You will be able to take images of your own hand planes in your shop, and add them to our wiki with factual data and information about your hand plane. Future forms will be created for all types of tools and machinery and other woodworking related data. Form screen shot below, the drop down menus have choices such as "Common Name", when the down arrow is clicked a drop down menu of choices - Smoothing - Jack - Fore - Jointer, are shown as a selection. Click on the "Save" button and a wiki page is automatically created with all the information you entered in this form. At this time, this form is for Bench Planes only, not specialty planes, there will be additional forms to cover the specialty classifications of hand planes.

  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!  Latest Wiki Entries Glossary of Woodworking Hand Tools is being updated at light speed thanks to the great open source book Principles of Woodworking by Herman Hjorth. Also, the Glossary of Woodworking Hand Tools has made it into our main navigation tab under "Wiki" at the top nav bar of our community. Just hover your cursor over "Wiki" for the drop down. As you all know by now, the wiki page for Glossary of Woodworking Terms is open for editing. Just visit the page, do not log in, it's not necessary, and hover your cursor over the down carrot symbol and click on "Edit", the page will then open for edit. Once you complete your edit, you'll be asked for a short description of what you did, simply enter into the field short terms such as "edit text", "added chisel", "corrected spelling", then you'll fill in the simple captcha anti spam robot field and submit, and your edit is recorded! Editing our Wiki Folks may be apprehensive about editing our wiki, I must admit when you open the page for edit it looks a tad strange. Just use the examples that are already there and you'll be fine. At this point we are using "wiki syntax". Soon I will open up the wiki with a standard windows style editor, but for now I am hoping folks will give the "wiki syntax" a chance as it's much more reliable because it's all "plain text" entries. Not too mention once you get used to it, it's quite fast too, since you are relying on text to create fonts, and bold lettering and underlines, it's actually much faster than having to highlite your word, and click on a formatting button as you do here in this forum. Here are a few examples of plain text entries for our wiki, and what those entries generate. The "Desired Formatting" is what you would like to see in your text, the "Syntax" is what you type, the "Result" is what you'll see once the page is saved. The Golden Rules of Editing our Wiki Really there are only two Golden Rules in wiki'ing. Be Bold! Be bold in your editing, be bold in your page creation, be bold in accepting others editing of your own personal work, and be bold in referencing and checking the facts. Be Creative! Don't be shy, and don't let the standards of wiki'ng stop you from editing or creating. Wiki's rely on research and references, in order to create content that is factually based. Our wiki should not contain content based on personal opinions, nor biased writings, but the wiki should be a source that readers can count on for factual statements about any given subject. Enter your content, enter you knowledge openly and freely, don't worry about the reference or research details if you don't have them, we can always come back and edit in those details later, so edit without fear! Creating and editing a wiki should be fun, since you cannot really damage a wiki page you should not worry if you are going to make a mistake or erroneously delete something that cannot be retrieved. The reason is that all wiki pages have a history, a history of edits and changes that can be recalled and re-established as a page. So if you accidentally destroy a wiki page, no worries! We can simply revert the prior page back to its former glory. So, create, edit, and just have fun!

Please tell us what's happening in your shops, your life, and any events going on with you. Thank you for being here folks! My shop In my shop, not much in the way of projects but I am having fun collecting tools I'll need to round out my inventory of chair making implements and tools. One of the last tools I purchased from a seller on eBay is this wonderful frame saw with a couple blades. I was in search for a turning saw, they are a tad shorter than this saw, but this saw should do well for cutting radius's, it appears this specific frame saw was made as a turning saw considering the blade installed and the blades that come with it and the tiny set screw and post to hold the blade. It should be on my bench tonight when I come home from work, I can't wait! By the way, I stole this beaut for 75 bucks, I am very happy. So that's it in my shop, hope you all have a wonderful week ahead, and stay safe, and be well! Turning saw by S.

Image of the week It's not often (actually never have) featured one of my own images here in this section, but I thought I'd share a neat picture I took with just my cell phone. I recently purchased a Stanley No. 49 Auger Depth Stop, and I took a couple pictures of it in action, and one of them I thought was just really neat, very clear, with the background items blurred out a little to bring focus to the foreground. I was impressed with my Motorola cell phone camera, I have had this cell phone for about 4 years and I am just now learning about all the imaging capabilities it has. Thanks for viewing!

Please tell us what's happening in your shops, your life, and any events going on with you. Thank you for being here folks! This past weekend I focused on my new addition to my shop, this fabulous workbench, oak base, with oak cabinets and walnut drawer pulls, with a 4" thick top made of Maple and Oak. It has an end vise that is very powerful. The top mounted vise is a really cool one too, it's an old Columbian, but I'll move it to another location in the shop. If anyone has been following my good fortune, I was contacted by some life long friends awhile back, and informed that their neighbor was looking for a recipient of her deceased husbands woodworking shop, he was a WWII and Korean War Navy Veteran, a very accomplished woodworker among other trades, a high school shop teacher since he came out of service for our nation, his name was Jim Eckler. Our friends recommended myself as the recipient, and here I am now. I sincerely believe it was Providence, that I have received this gift of a bench and many hand tools, as in my own life, I was ready to move to mainly a hand tool shop and downsize significantly, I was hesitating for awhile, then this happened, and this event touched me off to make the move. Over the past few weeks I have sold off all of my machinery but for one lunchbox planer, and I purchased a Shopsmith with a portion of the proceeds of my big sale, for the moments I really need power, and tucked it in a nice compact corner of our garage. This bench, will be the mainstay of my work space, I really love it, it's at least 40 or so years old, and it has a ton of character. The holdfasts I purchased off a young man from Ebay, he hand forges these holdfasts and they work very well, if you are in interested in the holdfasts let me know, I'll give you the contact information. I can't wait to get to work on my bench, and honor it appropriately. Raffle Winners Congratulations to the following winners of our annual community fundraiser!

Boys at YMCA Camp Lichtman See more at https://thepatriotwoodwiki.org/Education-Research-Portal Camp 1 was used as Camp Lichtman for many years, hosting groups of African-American boys from the Twelfth Street YMCA in Washington, DC. This use resulted in a codification of local segregation practices with separate entrances for the black camps on the north side of the site and white camps on the south. However, Camp 1 provided new camping facilities laid out according to the latest ideas in recreational planning at a time when few options were available to African-American groups. By the 1960s, Camp 1 was used as co-ed and integrated Camp Goodwill by Family and Child Services of Washington, DC.
  25. Good Monday Morning! Patriot Woodworker, we have survived the weekend to move on to this warm June week. The weekend brought a bit of fulfillment and completion for me. My son and I can finally say, "The end is near!" The deconstruction of his property is complete and we built an 80 foot fence on Saturday. He has scheduled a local company to bring in 7 loads of top soil to fill in the hole from the house and level the yard. New Member A special and warm welcome goes out to our newest member Steve Williams. If you see him on site, give him a big welcome. Your Week: So gang, what's shaping up for your week?

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.
