Description The tools you will have an opportunity to win were custom made by Easy Wood Tools for us, and you. The wood used in the handles were hand picked by @Jim from Easy Wood Tools these handles are made from curly maple that Jim acquired from a nearby Woodcraft Store. Unfortunately I am not able to show you the actual handles with the curly maple, I have tried without success to take a picture displaying the curled handles, and my photography skills aren't able to capture the quality of the wood handles, but just know, they are beautiful! Above are the Easy Wood Mid-Sized Tools that are displayed on their website, you will receive the Easy Wood Mid-Sized Finisher, Rougher, and Detailer, with Curly Maple handles made just for us by the fine folks at Easy Wood Tools.

Sorry, but only participants who reside in The United States and Canada are eligible to participate. Raffle purchases are non-refundable, (unless a fat finger mistake was made at time of purchase, such as you meant to purchase 100 tickets, not 1000) we can work with you on that. Mistakes happen. Last but not least, have fun! And thank you for your support! Where your money goes Typically we hold fundraising raffles for our causes that support our wounded veterans, or we'll use the funds to outfit a shop for a disabled woodworker in need, or we'll donate the funds to our two main recipients, Homes For Our Troops, and Operation Ward 57.

In closing Our entire community would love to thank the folks at Easy Wood Tools. EWT has been a staunch supporter of our woodworking community from the beginnings of our existence. I have had various phone calls and email interactions with the folks at Easy Wood Tools, and each phone call I had came with a question from Easy Wood Tools, "What can we do for The Patriot Woodworker's and our veterans?". Easy Wood Tools, from the days of Craig and Donna Jackson, to the days of Chris Caliendo and @Jim from Easy Wood Tools , there has been a common thread in their philosophy, support American Labor, Support our Veterans, and Support The Patriot Woodworker's. We are honored to have such a great American company with us. Without our sponsors Easy Wood Tools and our additional main sponsors, we could not stay live as a woodworking community. Thank you Easy Wood Tools! Links of interest Easy Wood Tools Easy Wood Tools You Tube Channel Easy Wood Tools Facebook Page

  4. A Happy Saint Patrick's Day to y'all. This is John Moody's hairy legged secretary again because he's out doing a show today. While John's making money, I'm spending the day on the phone getting all of my P's and Q's in line with my insurance company because my next job involves a school and they're a bit sticky about liability insurance. Yes, I won a contract for 24 shelf units for a local school corporation and I think this may be just the beginning. I have 40 sheets of birch plywood on order so I get to rest until next Thursday. Tomorrow is an auction day for yours truly so I'll see if I can snag a bargain or two. So, that's my agenda........What's on your agenda?
  5. Good Monday Morning Folks! What did ya'll get done over the weekend and what are ya gonna do the week ahead in your shops, in your homes, in your life?

Running late for work this morning, so I am sorry for not having the in depth community update topic here today, but I do hope you all had a safe and wonderful weekend, and a wonderful and safe week ahead.

  8. I'm an official stand-in today. My good friend and fellow admin, John Moody, is doing a 2 day show where the cell service is less than stellar so he asked if I would ask y'all, "What's on your weekend agenda"? I finished a pair of bookcases this week and was just about ready to finish a smaller one for summer show stock when my son asked if I would tag team an oak side table with him. As we we cutting out the table, his wife wandered into the shop and spied the oak bookcase that I was building. Needless to say, it will have a new home soon in my son's living room. Sigh...... Next week I'll be starting the largest single project I've ever tackled. I've been commissioned to build 24 storage racks for a local school corporation. Here's a couple of pictures of my DIL's new bookcase and the side table we have started.

  16. BILLINGS, Mont. — Ben Steele's hold on his sanity as a prisoner of war after surviving the Bataan Death March relied on hidden scraps of paper, stolen pieces of charcoal and his artist's memory of scenes from his home in Montana. "I used to dream about Montana more than anything else, more than I did food — and I used to dream about food all the time," Steele once said. "I was awful sick and I thought I was going crazy, so I had to do something to occupy my mind," he said. Source: Military.com Read More.....

  17. Good Monday Morning Patriot Woodworker's and guests! So, what the heck do have going on in our shops this week? I finally finished sanding some plaques for my daughters veterans club event, you can follow the beginning the blog series here at Project Introduction. It's amazing how long it takes to sand 32 square pieces of wood through the grits to 600. Last night I applied a coat of Watco Teak Oil and wiped down and tonight I'll apply a second coat as well. The plaques need to be finished up by this Friday night for presentation. I'll submit a second blog entry later about this project. Meanwhile, it's daylight savings time! Yuck! I wish it would just stay whatever for all year long. For nice read on the history of DL savings, see this at Daylight Savings Time Wikipedia. So, what's up in your shops folks!
  18. Good Monday Morning Patriot Woodworker's! I must admit I woke up rough this morning, not so ready to attack the week with the abundance of enthusiasm I typically have. Just one of those day's! I didn't even feel like putting one foot off my bed onto the floor, but, the world moves on so shall we! This weekend I was able to jump into the shop and make some progress on some plaques I am making for our daughters high school veterans support club. I got them cut, edges beveled, and sanded to 150. I'll spend a few hours on them this week after work getting them sanded to 600 in prep for some wipe on finish. I did not think about how much work this was going to be, it's an easy project, cut squares, bevel the edges, but it's the repetition of work that is really time consuming on the projects like this. The sanding is the most time intensive part of this event. Each one will have a service branch medallion applied at the top half and the a name plate with a special message to the veteran the club is honoring. So, that was my Saturday, Sunday I rested. How about you all, what is on your work week agenda in the shop! Have a wonderful week ahead folks, and thanks so much for being here on our community forum.

  21. I know it just be me, but it seems like the time just flies by these days. Can you believe that here we are the last weekend of March, the end of the first quarter of this new year? Wow. Well for those of you in the North, the buttercups are up and it will be in the 70's here today. Time to get out the John Deere and ready it for mowing. But it is still a great time to get out in the shop and spend some time with the tools and wood and put together some nice projects. As it seems to be, I am always behind and this weekend is no different. I picked up a load of Rock Maple and with some Curly mixed in a couple of weeks ago. It has rained off and on and I just didn't want to get the donkeys out to haul it down to the Wood Stash in the mud. Yesterday evening after work, we did manage to get 1000 bd/ft in the building, stickered and stacked. Here are a couple of shots of the wood stash. And that is only part of the building. Enough to keep me busy this summer. This weekend I will be finishing up a couple of Shadow Boxes for a good friend. He has these two old Baseball Gloves that were his dad's when he played Baseball back in the early 1900's. I was asked to make him a couple of boxes to display them in his Man Cave. The Catches Mitt And the Fielders Glove. Quite different than the equipment they use today. So I got a couple of nice Oak boards ready to make the shadow boxes. Got them put together and a coat of stain on them. Then cut the top so I can get the glass installed today at lunch. Once I have the glass ready, I will sand it again to smooth out any imperfections and put another coat of stain on then spray a clear coat on both of them. After that, I have several other projects on the board so I will just have to see how far I get this weekend. So what about you other Patriot Woodworkers on here, what is on your Patriot Woodworker Agenda this weekend? Are you starting projects, still working on a previously started project, building jigs, cleaning up the shop, restoring any old equipment or tools, or just having a little Spring Fever and getting outside? We here at TPW love to see all of the projects you great woodworkers are doing and we love to see them in stages and learn how you do it. So come on please jump in here and reply to this post and show us what you are working on this weekend. You might just inspire someone else to realize they can do it also. So, I am waiting. Post those pictures and tell us what you are working on!
