I doubt you offended anyone Artie. When Whittier was built  and finally opened in 1972 some scoffed at the idea, but over the years, it has proven itself, not only with the trades but academically. I don't know anything about Northeast Metropolitan Regional, but I,m sure they are providing the same quality education. I agree, It's time for the state to step up to at least provide the funding that it had promised during construction. 

 Wish you could have played chess with my son.He was never on any chess team but, he played members of the high school chess team, as well as some other quality players.Eventually none of the HS team players would play with him. He studied Fisher and really played the game with a passion.

If your son studied chess at all, I’m sure he would beat me. That doesn’t bother me, as long as I can make my opponent stop to think, once in a while, I don’t feel completely outclassed . I did play someone who had actually played Bobby Fischer in a round table tournament (he lost, but lasted longer than the others). I won the first game because he didn’t take me as a serious threat, but I never won again, against him. Think the losing ended at around 20 games. He was good. Chess is probably the only game I could lose at and still enjoy. (I can be such a sore sport LOL)

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.
