  6. Hi guys and ladies, not much gong on this weekend. I was sick most of yesterday, so I didn't get anything done, but today, i am making bottle stoppers. I am also still trying to plug all the splits in that old bowl blank that I displayed a week or 2 ago. Supervisor Shadow, is making sure I do things right the first time. He is a rather demanding sort after all. lol

Current is 90o....wind, WSW 2 +/- mph; fair amount of clouds but plenty of sun...with heat index, real feel currently is 99o... Grass is turning brown...way to hot & dry for this time of year.

    Memorial Day, May 28th, 2018

    Sgt Edwin Penn my cousin. He was 7 months younger than I was and was like my brother rather than a cousin. I got drafted in 1967 but enlisted instead in the Army Security Agency. He was drafted in 1968 in the 101st ABN. He was in Viet Nam for 29 days when he was killed in a fire fight. So proud of him. He left a wife and a small boy. I found his name on the Wall in DC along with 2 of my high school classmates who were killed over there. I still miss him to this day 50 yrs later.

    What an awesome image Ron. Thank you for sharing. I have never been to the wall, I did get a chance to see the moving wall in our own town, and that alone was an amazing experience, not only the wall itself, but the men and women who showed up to touch it. I did not touch it, it did not feel appropriate for me to do so, I can't explain why. But my family and myself stood back, and we watched men and women who had an obvious connection to the wall, touch it, and become emotional, it was a deep, profound experience for us all. Thanks again Ron for posting this image, truly one of the best images I have seen of this monument.

    Confectioners glaze is supposed to be the same thing. https://www.honeycolony.com/article/common-coating-on-candies-and-pills-is-made-from-bodily-excretions-of-asian-beetle/ Here is a spray can that may stay good for quite a while and is not much money. https://www.amazon.com/PME-Edible-Glaze-Spray-Ounce/dp/B00482H2FW/ref=pd_lpo_vtph_79_bs_t_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=4G1DYJDJM96G6NE68THN

    Thank you, Ron. Touching those names, on that wall, is a profound and sobering experience.

    Got a Question?

    I do think some blades are treated steel. I have a Zero turn mower made in Kansas called a Hustler. They claim to be the very first maker of that type of mower.. All their metal like what the mower decks are made of are thicker than the cheaper riding mowers.. I do get longer use out of their blades before they need to be sharpened. One sharpening is about all I can do before the mower starts shaking from me getting the blades out of balance. I use mulching blades and my deck does not have a chute on the side of the deck and it keeps the grass in and mulches it really fine and redistributes it on the yard....I would recommend this kind of set up with a riding mower... It keeps the lawn looking better also with a lot less labor involved. Just google blades and read up on them..also if interested google Hustler Mowers. They are in Kansas All the undercarriage on the Hustler is two or three times thicker so won't wear out so fast and more stronger than a regular riding mower and I use to go through mowers real quick mowing the four acres at the go cart track and golf course so my experience grew by leaps and bounds keep equipment running and in good shape.. And yes I think some of the blades are heat treated to hold an edge longer.

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!


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.


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.



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.
