Wednesday's Wisdom For Woodturners December 9, 2015

Recommended Posts


A little short on Wisdom this week. We are getting new siding on the house and the contractor is allowing me to "help". He said he wouldn't charge us any extra for my "assistance". The one thing I can say for certain is that I'm not as young or as agile as I used to be.



As for turning, the rolling pins are being glued together and prepped for turning. The siding contractor wants 4 for Christmas presents!!


Tim Yoder has a video up. It's a little different this time. He talks about  what to look for in a grinder and how to perform some basic tune-ups.


If you have a Facebook account, check out the Easy Wood Tool page. They are posting some great videos about their turning tools.


Safe Turning!

Hey I just thought he'd be helping somewhere on the house, not taking the picture!:P

They gave me the job of bending all of the aluminum trim pieces for the windows, doors, facia, etc.

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.
