  • Welcome to The Patriot Woodworker, we are an online woodworking community with a focus on preserving the arts, craft and trades of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Within our community also exist the care and concern we share for our American military veterans and active duty. Throughout any given calendar year we create and organize fund raisers for various veterans organizations and individual veteran woodworkers as well.
    Join us, we would love you to join us at our online community forums by signing up at The Patriot Woodworker. Once you are signed up and logged in please take the time to let us know who you are and what your woodworking interests are, by going to the "Introduce Yourself" forum. There you can give us an idea of your skill level and areas of interest, and you can get to know the rest of the folks that make up The Patriot Woodworker. We hope to see you there!
    The Patriot Woodworker Forums, are alive and full of great content from woodworkers, trades people, and crafts persons alike. From our General Woodworking Forum to our Wood Turners Forum to our CNC Forum, and many in-between, you will surely find a forum that is fit for you. The Patriot Woodworker Forums consist of mature and drama-free participants, where respect is the word of the day and your topics and posts are free of judgement.
  • How good is your work?

    I look back at some of my very early projects (and even later ones with which I've had difficulty) and have developed a motto: * do the best you can with your skill level today * learn something from your work * let your next one show your improved skill   and  * it's not a mistake, it's an opportunity for a design change     And I have a poster in my shop to remind me: Skill is made, not born in us, and it advances best through difficulty.  -- Char

    Drill press as tap tool

    I used to be a foreign car mechanic, so I have a wide variety of tools. However. I have found that using one of my three my drill presses to feed a thread tap assures me of it being straight. Probably not news to anyone, but thought I would offer it anyway! By the way, I have four cabinet saws, eight routers, four bandsaws, two wood lathes, and I usually keep them set up for different operations. Just bragging, I guess!

    Education

    Education 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. Research Do you love researching? Do you like to write about subjects in a factual non-biased style?

    • Thanks to Lew and Steve!
      Today Easy Wood Tools announced a new set of Mini Easy Hollowing Tools to the world.  We are very proud of these tools and I am sure they will be a hit!  The thing we don't really advertise and you guys here at TPW should know is that @Steve Krumanaker and @lew were a critical part of our team in developing these tools.

    • Repurposing A Silver Box (New PC Build)
      Well here I go, time for me to build a new PC. 
      But being the way I am, I can't build anything that's quite normal. 
      Doe's anyone remember the Silver Boxes I found awhile back? 
      I knew when I picked them up I'd have to come up with a good use for them, but what? 
      Well here we go with what will become of the first one.

      Memorial Day
      This is not a day of celebration, this is not a day to say "Happy Memorial Day", as we often see the banners streaming across the door way of a big box store, or your car dealers lot, "Happy Memorial Day!".
