Well, I was (and am) in the middle of three projects.  A pair of mirrors for upcoming weddings in April; a pair of oak nightstands for the second bedroom and a pair of underbed storage drawers for the first upstairs bedroom.  Sounds like all my projects come in pairs?

 

Then the call came in.  Yesterday morning my SIL called to inform me that my older brother had passed away during the night.  They were overseas, in Portugal, when he took ill and was hospitalized.  He died from complications due to pneumonia.  I will be headed out sometime in the next few days so that I can help SIL settle his estate.  I am not sure yet when they will be returning, needless to say - there is a bunch of paperwork for her to do in Portugal before she will leave.  But I plan to be in upstate NY to help when she arrives.  I visited the VA center here today to see what may be available for her in death benefits, but I did not get to speak with anyone.

 

RIP Clint Hyer, US Army 1967-1969 (I think) Vietnam Vet

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!

Objective

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.

Volunteer

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.

Education

Logging

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.
