"We are not a charity, yet we have a moral obligation to help those in need who have defended our nations and have paid the price in doing so."
Many folks ask us how they can help our disabled veterans. Well actually there are many ways, but we tend to focus on a few here within our woodworking community.
First and foremost, we are woodworkers. But we have another interest in common, we support and help disabled veteran woodworker's achieve their goals of independence through woodworking by providing them with the tools needed to build a successful working shop, and by the action of building something from wood alone, our veterans can take their minds off the everyday struggles their disabilities may bring them day in and day out. Woodworking is therapy.
Veterans returning home from war suffer from various disabilities, some of the disabilities are visible, and many are not. And we are helping as many as we can with the limited resources we have. We are making a difference, one veteran woodworker at a time, we are making a difference.
Please read on to learn how you can help us help our disabled veterans gain peace of mind through woodworking. Help us help those who have put it all on the line for us, and who have paid the price in doing so.
What is The Patriot Woodworker Woodworking Community?
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. Though we also support our veterans and active duty both here in the United States and in Canada, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. In fact most of our members are not veterans. So please, join us! Please click on Join The Patriot Woodworker's.
What are the Benefits of Becoming a Patriot Woodworker?
First off you'll be a member of a very grown up group of woodworker's where drama is non-existent. Your discussion forum experience will be completely relaxed, and "respect" is always the word of the day. We welcome all woodworkers from every walk of life and from all around the world to join us. You will be able to participate in our community projects. Frequently throughout any given calender year we are involved in fundraisers, volunteer opportunities in your area, and small arts and crafts project builds to benefit our disabled veterans groups we support and endorse. Participation in any of the above projects is absolutely not necessary. By simply being a member and participating in our discussion forum you are by default helping our community stay live, and by keeping our content fresh and new.
Being a member allows you to receive some fantastic sponsor supported giveaways.
Frequently we'll have tools donated to our community by our sponsors and supporters, and we'll hold a contest or random drawing for the giveaway. We have had some wonderful items that have left our supporters where-house's destined for a Patriot Woodworker's shop, such as turning tools donated by Easy Wood Tools, hand planes donated by Woodcraft, machinery accessories donated by Laguna Tools, clamps donated by Bessey Tools and more! So what are you waiting for! Join us now at The Patriot Woodworker discussion forum!
Our mission is to provide woodworkers a way to teach, learn and share their love of woodworking. We are volunteers, helping our disabled veterans through our woodworking, mentoring, local volunteerism, fundraising for veterans charities, and working closely with our woodworking veterans in crisis.
The Patriot Woodworker was founded on the principals of providing the woodworking arts and crafts world a place to join and share their love of woodworking and the tools and machinery related to the industry. Our members are encouraged to mentor, learn and teach others our fine craft of woodworking and to simply participate in sharing projects and personal experiences in their own life.
The Reason The Patriot Woodworker Exists
We provide fund raising for veterans organizations and to support our American and Canadian Veterans through community outreach, volunteerism, and to create awareness of the service and sacrifice our men and women have performed in the name of our nations. Please join us, all woodworkers and non woodworkers are welcome! You do not have to be a veteran of any armed forces to be a member, the majority of our members are not veterans!
