Good Monday Morning!

Good Monday Patriot Woodworkers! What did you get done over the weekend, and what have you planned for the week ahead! Inquiring minds want to know. Please tell us what's happening in your shops, your life, and any events going on with you. Thank you for being here folks!


Personal update: I think I quite woodworking, seems I cannot get back in the shop these days, this is the longest dry spell I have ever had (no woodworking since August). Between home repairs for our VA refinance (done) and medical emergencies, and visiting loved ones in the hospital, and just a whole host of things that I cannot publicly display, I cannot get back to it! Alas, I do have faith! I was able to actually walk out to my shop and organize a tad. It's amazing when a garage/shop is not being used, how much crap builds up on top of woodworking surfaces!  Thanks for reading my display of self pity. :)

When they opened the show at 9 A.M., there were about 300-400 people waiting to get in.  By 9:03 I had my first sale. 

Holy cow Ron...As big as any "Black Friday" morning opening...only difference these folks showed some courtesy and respect. Glad the show went well!

Accomplished nothing tangible or of any value...weather yesterday was dreary, rainy, cold, damp and any other appropriately miserable adjectives. Definitely Monday...daughter's van died on way to take kids to school this AM...Tow service has picked up and headed to the shop so we've been scrambling juggling vehicles and people to places. H.S. swim season kicks off tomorrow night with a 3-way meet and a dual meet Sat. at home.


Remaining "free" time this week TBD ./. weather prognosis...basically a dull week measured up with all of you.^_^

My thoughts are with you, Dave.  I went to a swim meet one time and it was two hours of waiting, hustle in to the pool area, watch for two minutes, repeat.  Awful experience and worse than soccer if that is possible.

Actually Ron after 5 years of Middle school, summer programs and now 3rd year of HS,  I've come to appreciate the sport and what both girls do and have accomplished. It will be a tad easier this year with both swimming varsity (Fr. & Jr.)...now on the other hand, H.S Volleyball...well, I'd soon watch glue or paint dry:P No offence to those that enjoy that sport...and yeah, I was thrilled when oldest grandson gave up soccer although at that age was entertaining to watch the kids and unbelievable watching the parents:o

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.
