Featured Gallery

I stumbled across a gallery of mine I thought may be beneficial to anyone who is building, thinking of building, a steam box for bending wood. I made this box for my chairs, and it was a successful first attempt, thanks for looking!

Weather extremely uncooperative so little accomplished over the weekend except 3 round trips Saturday to the HS plus 1.4 hours of "driving school" for oldest grand-daughter. We thankfully "survived" her first driving experience on the interstate.:P She's a good student and continues to learn...lots of practice still needed though.

 

Coming week...4 tennis matches scheduled weather permitting (forecast foreboding); Mail taxes...Remainder, TBD...Snowing, cold, and miserable this AM...nap time in a few minutes.

 

One last comment...Punxsatawney Phil = Fake News plus Liar, Liar, pants on fire...and in the immortal words that of that great Southern American, Forrest Gump..."that's all I've got to say about that!!"

You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day...

and today is that day...

Wishing her a quick recovery from the surgery. Life does get better after the surgery.

Nothing accomplished this weekend. Lots of rain and cold.

Allen, this nurse after my knee operation told me a way to remember when going up or down the stairs, the good goes up and the bad goes down. I'm sure she was referring to the bible but always lead with the bad leg when going down the stairs and with the good leg when going up the stairs...

 Hope she is happy with the results...My only complaint is when working on something sitting on the floor then trying to stand back up.. Those new pieces in the leg just don't want to bend far enough....Doc said give it time. Its been over 15 years now and I don't have much more time to offer.

Well, I am in the process of making a silk purse out of a sows ear. Actually am in the process of building 10 wood duck houses out of junk recycled cedar. Much clamping and gluing. In fact it turns out that about 80% of my time is taken up by this exercise. Doing this as a favor my son and friend. Using Titebond 3. This will be a true test of that glue as these nest boxes are out year round. I really, really value my warm dry shop--- just finished with 12" of snow and a two day significant blizzard here in southwest MN. Works for me.

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.
