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.

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!

    New Project

    The wife handed me a new drawing and project last night. It’s a small project to keep me busy while she finishes up the drawings for the next big project which is the media room. This is a stand for the fireplace tools. It’s mostly a long spindle turning of segmented bubinga and ebony. The bubinga I have but the ebony stash is too low. There isn’t enough left. She may have to compromise. I can get the same effect with black lacquered maple. I also don’t think I am going to do segmented rings. I

    Turning stopper blanks

    I was starting to run out of exotic wood blanks and decided to go slightly out of isolation and visit Woodcraft. It was a chance to get out and it was a very nice day. There were more sales people there than customers. As I was walking thru, I saw acrylic bottle stopper blanks with some neat designs in them. I don't really like turning acrylics much, it creates such a huge mess of plastic strings everywhere on and near the lathe. I got 3 and a nice piece of figured cedar. It was so figured that

    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? Do you like leaving your footprint of knowledge behind f
